“Pressure Will Be On…” says Shoaib Akhtar of the India-Pakistan T20 World Cup match at Melbourne Cricket Ground.
According to Shoaib Akhtar, the pressure will be on Babar Azam’s Pakistan cricket team in the 2022 T20 World Cup match against India because the majority of the crowd at the MCG would be rooting for Team India.
The Indian and Pakistani cricket teams will compete in the 2022 T20 World Cup in Australia on October 23. Pakistan has won the previous encounter between the two teams. Last year, they won a T20 World Cup Super 12 match in Dubai by a 10-wicket margin. The match between India and Pakistan in the 2022 T20 World Cup will be placed at Melbourne Cricket Ground, which has a capacity of over 100,000 people. The pressure would be on the Babar Azam-led side this time, according to former bowler Shoaib Akhtar. Because the majority of the fans will be supporting Team India.
“The wicket at the MCG kicks through at night.” The bowling second position would be ideal for Pakistan to win the match against India. In an interview with Sportskeeda Cricket, he stated, “There will be 100,000 fans in attendance, with 70,000 of them supporting India, putting pressure on Pakistan.”
What does Shoaib Akhtar have to say about it?
Shoaib Akhtar went on to say that if the Indian team chooses the right roster, they will have a good chance of winning the match, adding that Pakistan will not have an easy time this time.
“India can’t just pick a team at random to play Pakistan without first laying out their responsibilities”. I believe the team should be carefully chosen by the management, and I am confident that it will be a formidable group. “This time, Pakistan will not go down without a fight,” Akhtar added.
“If India selects the right lineup for the tournament, they have a good chance of defeating Pakistan. He went on to explain, It’s tough to foresee an outcome because they’re both evenly matched right now.”
