With a rivalry as fierce as India vs Pakistan, it becomes really difficult to choose between the two and furthermore predict a winner.We have a similar situation today as arch rivals India and Pakistan would take on each other at the Indian Mecca of Cricket, Eden Gardens Kolkata.The match being a T20, adds to the overall spiciness and thrills and bits.Lets take a took at the previous records and ultimately predict a winner.
India vs Pakistan:Previous Records So Far
It is a well known fact that India hasn’t lost a single match against Pakistan so far, in an ICC World Cup fixture.In fact, India has outplayed Pakistan on all most all occasions in this scenario.Today being a ICC World T20 2016 match , history is again opposite Pakistan.Hence they would need to play out of their skins to do away with this ancient record of not beating India at the World stage.
Secondly, India batsmen have been in great form.Although they lost pretty badly against New Zealand, it can attributed more towards the nature of the pitch which was really assisting spinners.Given a flat surface with even bounce and carry, Indian batsmen can smash apart any bowling lineup whatsoever, be it Pakistan or Australia.The pitch at the Eden Gardens is expected to be really even ,although persistent rain might make it more bowler friendly.Hence India would be again at an advantage here, since it is the Indian side which is more batting heavy.
Given the above two factors come into play, we can easily assign a Winning Chance to India (60%) as compared to Pakistan (40%) who has suffered badly two due to the apologetic batting display.
