Former India cricketer Virender Sehwag discussed the India-Pakistan rivalry in detail ahead of the October 24 match in Dubai. Speaking to ABP News, Sehwag explained how Pakistan entered the T20 format with more chances against India than the longer versions of the game. He said, “I think T20 is one format where Pakistan always have more chances. Whenever the longer format comes, they can’t play that well. In the shorter format, even a player from any team. Could be good enough to beat the other team.”

Sehwag argued why Pakistan entered the World Cup against India when India was under relatively less pressure.

“India are always under less pressure in this match because we are usually in a better position than Pakistan in World Cups,” he added.

Sehwag also pointed out that some people in Pakistan have a habit of making big statements before the India-Pakistan match. We never make big statements. All the big statements before the game come from Pakistan. Well, then you know what the result will be.”


In the ongoing T20 WC, both the teams will clash for the first time since their match at CWC 2019 in England this week. India won that match by 89 runs (DLS method).

India and Pakistan have won the tournament once each, while they have defeated the finalists on two separate occasions.
