ICC T20 World Cup 2021 is set to begin on a high note as Pakistan and India will open the tournament with an electric match on the 24th October at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium.
With no recent clashes having taken place between the arch-rivals, Pakistani fans have pinned their hopes on skipper Babar Azam to put up a splendid performance.
However many would be astonish to learn that the star batsman has not yet played a single T20 against the neighbours in his 61-match experience with the rivals since his 2016 debut.
It is certain to say that fans in both cricket nations are eager, as they haven’t played a bilateral series since 2012-13 and only ever lock horns at ICC events.
Nonetheless, the elegant right-hander remains to be one of the Men in Green's strongest plays and all eyes will be on him during the high-octane clash.
