Despite India’s defeat in their campaign opener against Pakistan, former Pakistan pacer Shoaib Akhtar wants to see the Virat Kohli-led team in the finale of the ICC T20 World Cup.
Replying to Indian spinner Harbhajan Singh, the Rawalpindi Express expressed his desire to see Men in Blue in the submit clash to be played in Dubai.
“Want India to be in finals my brother & you know that . But b4 that thori bohat masti zarori hai,” he wrote.

All eyes will be on today’s match between Pakistan and New Zealand. If the Babar Azam-led team defeat Kiwis, this would go down as a favour for the Indian team.
Even former India player Aakash Chopra wants Pakistan to beat New Zealand.
“I feel Pakistan will help India if they defeat New Zealand. But if it happens the other way round, New Zealand beats Pakistan, it can be a three-way tie, the net run rate story can come if India beats New Zealand and assuming the three teams win their remaining matches.”
“If Pakistan beat New Zealand, then only Afghanistan will be there in between and two teams who have come from the qualifiers – Scotland and Namibia. Then Pakistan through, make your place in the semi-finals and enjoy,” he further explained.
