India has more chances of winning against Pakistan in T20 World Cup Match.
India take on Pakistan on the first T20 match in the T20 world cup held in Bangladesh on 21st March, 2014. The records of India against Pakistan in World Cup backs the opinion. India had defeated Pakistan in every encounter of World Cup.
As far as Indian batting is concerned, there are destructive batsmen in the team including MS Dhoni, Virat Kohli, Suresh Raina, Yuvraaj Singh and others. Many of these batsmen had played in the last T20 world cup and have experience of facing pressure situations. Shikhar Dhawan and Rohit Sharma are also in good form and should do justice to their talents.
In respect of India’s bowling Mohammad Shami is the best bowler in the side. Ravindra Jadeja had done wonders with his spin bowling in the past.
A lot depends on him. There is worry in respect of the form of Ravichandran Ashwin and Bhubaneshwar Kumar. But taking into consideration their experience there is a lot of hope in case they apply themselves. This is India’s best fielding side. Yuvraj Singh, Virat Kohli, Suresh Raina are great fielders and they have proved themselves in the past.
As far as Pakistan in concerned, Shahid Afridi helped the side to win against India in the Asia Cup match by the brilliant sixes against Ravichandran Ashwin. That will definitely bolster the morale of Pakistan. Beside the match is played on a Friday. So that factor goes in favour of Pakistan. But if the batting of Pakistan is seen, they had not been consistent over the years. Other than Mohammad Hafeez and Kamran Akmal there are not many experienced batsmen in the team. Umar Akmal had played well against India over the years but his record is not impressive. Shahid Afridi is the only danger batsman whom India have to make a plan against.
India's captain MS Dhoni has better records. He is very cool as well. On 21st March, 2014, he has to show his composure and making the bowling changes properly.
Pakistan’s best weapon is their bowling. Uman Gul had been good in these conditions. Saeed Ajmal is the best spinner of the country. India has to play out the overs of this talented spinner. In paper India is a much better than Pakistan. If India can apply themselves there is no reason why they cannot win against them in the opening match in the T20 World Cup 2014.
The Ashes always generate interest. This time all the plans of England came to naught as they have lost the first three tests and in a five-match test series it's all over bar the shouting.
Australia surrendered against India in the first one day played in Chennai on 17th September. They lost by 27 runs and gave a disastrous exhibition of cricket.
