India vs Pakistan cricket matches always evoke great enthusiasm across the Indian Sub-continent. Both the teams have large fan following and the historic animosity means that every match has at least around one and half billion people rooting for one cricket team or the other.

Though the popularity of cricket has diminished over the years due to the taint of match fixing, many people still seem to be charmed with the game that was earlier known as gentlemen’s game. There is no denying the fact that many people are claiming that the India vs Pakistan match will be the highest watched match of the tourney and the excitement of the fixture will not be less than the final of the world Cup.

While Indian cricket team is the obvious favorite to win the game as it is playing in its own backyards, Pakistan has made its intentions clear after winning two matches in style.

shahid afridi with javed miandadFirst they beat Sri Lanka in their warm-up match and then demolished Bangladesh in their officially the first match of the tournament.

Indian team was beaten by New Zealand team in their first match of the tournament shocking not just Dhoni and his boys but also the billion plus Indian cricket fans. India come into this match in desperate need of a win, while Pakistan are happy as can be after smashing Bangladesh in their opening World T20 encounter.

There is no denying the fact that right now after utter desperation of Asia Cup 2016, Pakistan have a few things going for them ahead of this WT20 match. They are coming off a fantastic win over Bangladesh, a game where their batsmen came to the party in some style, posting a total of over 200 runs, while this is a venue where the men in green have never lost to the men in blue in limited-overs cricket.

Despite Pakistan’s win against Bangladesh and India’s loss against New Zealand, Dhoni & Co. seems to be better placed than Afridi’s boys. They have a batting depth that Pakistan don’t possesses and hteir fielding is decades ahead of Pakistan. Besides, India have the mental edge over Pakistan in ICC World tournaments, having never lost to them in either the 50-over World Cup or the World T20.
