India will face arch-rival Pakistan in their first match of the Super 12 stage on October 24 in Dubai. Watch India vs Pakistan live on YuppTV and enjoy the much-anticipated game. 

Pakistan has another shot at changing history when they take on India in their opening game in the mega event. Pakistan never defeated India in a World Cup game, both ODI and T20. More than winning the world cup, Babar Azam-led Pakistan will look to end India’s winning spree. All eyes are on the in-form skipper Babar Azam, wicketkeeper Mohammed Rizwan and Shaheen Afridi. Pakistan skipper Babar is ranked No. 2 batsman in the world right now, and Rizwan is the leading run-getter in 2021. Shaheen Shah Afridi, the young left-arm pacer is in terrific form of late. Both India and Pakistan have done well in the warmup matches against England and West Indies. 

Both the teams will lock horns for the first time in over two years, their previous meeting was at the ODI World Cup in England in 2019. Due to bitter relations between the neighbours, bilateral ties are on hold, which means they only face in ICC major events and multi-team tournaments like the World Cups. India and Pakistan have one T20 world cup title in their bag and eye on a second trophy. Looking at the team’s current form and players, both countries look like a serious contender in the race for their second title. 

The biggest match of the T20 tournament generates high pressure. “See, India vs Pakistan is always a high-pressure game. And whichever team handles pressure better will win. Also, whichever teams make the smallest of mistakes has a better chance of winning,” said Pakistan former batsman Boom Boom Afridi on his official YouTube. “If you look at Pakistan, they have been playing cricket in Dubai for a long time, they have a good idea of the conditions. On paper, fine, India has a good team, but in T20 cricket, you never know. One player can come and win you the match and go,” said Pakistan former cricketer Tanvir Ahmed.
