Pakistan will take on India in their first ICC T20 World Cup match at the Melbourne Cricket Ground. The October 23 clash is the most-awaited one of the ongoing edition of the global event in Australia. Suryakumar Yadav has been India’s best6 batter in T20Is, but former Pakistan captain Aamer Sohail is not worried about the threat posed by the right-handed batter.
Sohail said SKY can’t bat like Viv Richards every day. He picked Pakistan as the favourites for the tie.
“Pakistan have a strong bowling line-up, which makes them favourites for the match against India. Rohit Sharma’s team is ful of talent, but if I was Pakistan’s captain, I would not get worried by Suryakumar’s presence as he can’t bat like Viv Richards every day. Kohli and Rohit are also dangerous,” he said.
Pakistan have so far beaten India only once in 13 World Cup meetings, the only win coming in ICC T20 World Cup in 2021.
