T20 World Cup: India’s 1983 World Cup-winning captain, Kapil Dev said that even though the Indian team looks strong on paper, Pakistan can win the match if India is not able to handle the pressure. While talking to ABP News, Kapil Dev said that India vs Pakistan is going to be an exciting match.
When asked about which team would dominate proceedings on Sunday, Kapil Dev said, “On the field, such things don’t matter. Both teams will be under pressure, thus it will be interesting to see who will handle the pressure well.”
“Although I don’t know much about them, still I would say that Pakistan is a dangerous team in T20, they can defeat anyone on a given day,” he added.
“Indian team looks strong on paper but will they be able to catch the rhythm? It’s the first match of the tournament and it is the most important I feel.
When asked about Uncertainty in the Pakistan team Kapil Dev said, “Both teams have not played against each other, so surely the uncertainty would be there. The Indian team looks stronger, but Pakistan has lot of unexpected players. Although I feel India should not be worried about it.”
