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.
