Shoaib Akhtar, the former pacer, will be supporting India in today’s game against New Zealand. The Men in Blue will play their crucial encounter of the ongoing ICC T20 World Cup with the hope of registering their first win in the competition. India were undone by Pakistan in their first match of the campaign. The Men in Green thumped the arch-rivals by 10 wickets.
Shoaib took to Twitter to speak in favour of the Virat Kohli-led team. “Crucial day for India, tough day for New Zealand. I am rooting for India today,” he wrote.
Crucial day for India, tough day for New Zealand. I am rooting for India today.

Meanwhile, Virat Kohli sounded confident on the eve of the match. He is backing his players to come good against the Kiwis. India are looking for their first win over the Kiwis in a global tournament since 2003. New Zealand have always troubled India across formats.
