Subject : WT20: Wasim, Gavaskar pick Pakistan as favourites over India
Speaking to Geo News on Thursday, he said Pakistan will have a psychological edge over Indians in the high-voltage game of the mega-event.

“Pakistan is going to the game after a convincing win in their opening match, so they will have a psychological edge,” Wasim said. “Indians lost their first match to New Zealand, and the way they lost it, would add the pressure on Indians,” the former captain added. Wasim Akram was of the view that Kolkata’s wicket would continue to help batsmen and predicted a good contest between the two batting lineups. He suggested Pakistan should go into the encounter with an attacking strategy and try to grab every opportunity that comes their way. “If Pakistan is able to get quick wickets, a couple of wickets in power play session, then they can push India to the back foot in the match,” he added.

Gavaskar also picks Pakistan
India’s legendary batsman Sunil Gavaskar has also picked Pakistan as the favourites against India for this weekend’s much-awaited WorldT20 game between Pakistan and India. “After the loss to New Zealand, India will be under far more pressure against Pakistan. I feel Pakistan start as favourites for the game on Saturday,” Gavaskar said in an interview. Gavaskar said although it will be a contest between India’s batting and Pakistan’s bowling, but India’s bowling can also play an important role in Kolkata. “It is still pretty much Indian batting versus Pakistan bowling. However, with the way Indian bowlers have performed recently, they also won't be easy to tackle either,” he said. “Ashwin is bowling well and so is Nehra, Then you have Jasprit Bumrah. So it will be a test for Pakistani batsman,” he added. “It only takes an over and half to turn the game around in T20,” the former India captain said. Gavaskar said that Mohammad Amir can create problems for Indian batsmen. “Amir has the ability to swing the ball back. Rohit and Rahane were found wanting against him in Asia Cup. They will have to be careful against Amir,” Gavaskar said.

Imran Khan, said that the captain is in-charge of the team on the field and it is the skipper who makes the decisions on how his side should play against the opposition.

“The whole team look towards its team throughout the match”, he added.

Khan also said that Pakistan’s Twenty20 captain was under pressure in the match and the Indian bowlers bowled well on the spinning track. He went on to say that the green shirts did not include any regular spinner in the team.

The former Pakistani cricketer said that it seemed now as if he had to play for the team himself.

ISLAMABAD: Former captain Imran Khan on Sunday congratulated Pakistan Women cricket team on their victory against India.

In a series of tweets, Khan said the disappointment which he faced due to defeat of Pakistan team against India was somewhat mitigated by the victory of women team.

The former cricket hero said Pakistan has immense cricketing talent but existing structure of the sport was unable to hone new talent.

He said cricket gap between Pakistan and India will widen if cricket structure is not overhauled.

Imran Khan witnessed the match between Pakistan and India in Kolkata’s Eden Gardens cricket stadium on Saturday.
