India and Pakistan are all set to open their campaign against each other in the ICC T20 World Cup on Sunday, October 24. The high-profile match is the most awaited match of the event. The former India skipper Kapil Dev stated that both teams will be under pressure.
Pakistan have one of the best teams in the shortest format of the game and the legendary player spoke about the composition of the Babar Azam-led team.
“On the field, such things [which team will dominate] don’t matter. Both teams will be under pressure, thus it will be interesting to see who will handle the pressure well. Although I don’t know much about them, still I would say that Pakistan is a dangerous team in T20, they can defeat anyone on a given day,” the former India captain said while speaking to ABP News.
Kapil also added though the Indian team looks strong on paper they will have to perform better under pressure.
“Both teams have not played against each other, so surely the uncertainty would be there. The Indian team looks stronger, but Pakistan has a lot of unexpected players. Although I feel India should not be worried about it. The only thing is to perform well under pressure. Pakistan can win this match also if the Indian team is unable to handle the pressure,” Kapil Dev added.
