IND vs PAK: The Dubai International Stadium will be witnessing an iconic match up between India & Pakistan, a rivalry that has been going on for many years. This will be the opening game for both teams in this T20 World Cup.
India competed against Australia in a warm-up game previously. Steve Smith’s 57 and cameos from others helped Australia get to 152/5. Ashwin shined with the ball, picking up 2/8. It turned out to be a pretty simple chase for India as Rohit Sharma scored a brilliant 60 while Suryakumar stayed unbeaten at 38 off 27 balls. India ended up winning the game by 8 wickets.
On the other hand, Pakistan faced a humiliating loss against South Africa. Batting first, Pakistan scored a massive 186/6 in 20 overs. Fakhar Zaman top-scored with 52(28) while Kagiso Rabada
This is one rivalry no one would miss out on. As it has always had, India will be the favourites to win this game, but Pakistan are the one to always put up a great show. Only time will tell.
