The high-voltage clash between India and Pakistan will be the contest that will get the most attention. The arch-rivals will come against each other on October 24 in Dubai where India will try to stretch their unbeaten streak against Pakistan in World Cups.

Meanwhile, former Indian spinner Harbhajan Singh reveals the conversation he had with former Pakistan pacer Shoaib Akhtar. Bhajji took a dig at Akhtar saying that India is very strong and Pakistan should give a walkover.

“I have told Shoaib Akhtar, what is the point of Pakistan playing, you should give us a walkover, you will play, you will again lose, you will be upset. Our team is very solid, very strong, they will easily beat you guys,” Harbhajan Singh told Star Sports.

Harbhajan Singha and Shoaib Akhtar were involved in several on-field engagements during their hay days. During the marquee contest in the Asia Cup 2010 in Sri Lanka, Bhajji won India the game with a six and exchanged few words with Akhtar.

Pakistan have been in good form in the T20I cricket but India are also doing well. Babar Azam-led side will be eager to end the Indian hoodoo but it will be an uphill task for them. They have several match-winners in their rank and so does Team India.

India and Pakistan last faced each other in the World Cup 2019’s group match, where India came on top and maintained their unbeaten streak.
