So, overall the head to head and match details clearly indicate that Indians have done far better than Pakistan team in the T20 Internationals. But the thing we all should note is, Pakistan has always defeated India in '50 overs format' at the Eden Gardens.
Apart from the history, one should also look at the current scenario. Pakistan seems to be having a slightest edge over India in this match. Reason being, India entered the T20 World Cup with a tag of firm favourites. Shockingly they lost to New Zealand by a big margin thus getting a big negative net run rate in the points tally. The team may face high chances of early elimination if they don't beat Pakistan today at Kolkata.
Another day, another game. Hopefully, a good one #IndvsPak. Here we come, Kolkata— Harsha Bhogle (@bhogleharsha) March 19, 2016
Meanwhile Pakistan embarked on their campaign with a win over Bangladesh. Most of their batsmen clicked in a combined effort to register a convincing win. Pick of the members was Shahid Afridi who scored a quick fire 49 and also took two wickets. Although their win came against the weakest team in the group, but a win always brings in confidence. So as far as the confidence level is concerned, Pakistan are better placed than the hosts India.
MS Dhoni and men would be firm enough to bounce back hard and win the remaining matches. That would give them an easy entry to the knock out games.
Whatever be the situation, but two things are for sure! Full house at the Eden Gardens and an enthralling match. Watch it live on HotStar and Star Sports.
