Indian cricketer, Harbhajan Singh has taken a jibe at Pakistani former fast-bowler, Shoaib Akhtar, ahead of the T20 World Cup, where the two arch-rivals India and Pakistan are set to meet in the tournament.

While speaking to Star Sports Harbhajan said, “I have told Shoaib Akhtar, what is the point of Pakistan playing, you should give us a walkover, you will play, you will again lose, you will be upset,”

“Our team is very solid, very strong, they will easily beat you guys,”

Pakistan Skipper, Babar Azam, a day earlier speaking during a virtual press conference, said that he is confident of beating India and winning the T20 World Cup.

The captain said that Pakistan would beat India and carry on the momentum throughout the tournament to win the World Cup.

He said, “There is pressure [on the team] during mega-events, but there is added pressure during matches against India,”

India has faced Pakistan five times since the T20 World Cup kicked off in 2007, but unfortunately, India won all five matches.

The T20 World Cup is scheduled between 17th October till the final on 14th November in UAE and Oman.

Pakistan will play warm-up matches against West Indies and South Africa before beginning their campaign with a blockbuster clash with arch-rivals India on 24th October in Dubai.
