Pakistan not a threat for India in the T20 World Cup, says Ajit Agarkar

As Pakistan and India gear up to lock horns in the highly-anticipated clash on October 24, former Indian pacer, Ajit Agarkar believes that Green Shirts are not a threat for India considering the current form of both sides.

"The stakes are always high when India and Pakistan play together but going by Team India's current form and taking the stats into consideration, I don't think Pakistan will pose that much of a challenge," Agarkar said in an interview on Star Sports' Class of 2007 show.

Ajit added that, India should not take Pakistan lightly in the shortest format of cricket and if they do so, it would be a mistake.

"Having said that, I don't think we should take our neighbours lightly because cricket is a funny game, and things can change at any moment, especially in the T20 format," Agarkar added.

Agarkar talked about the first edition of the T20 World Cup in South Africa when India beat Pakistan in a thrilling final to take the trophy home.

"The entire tournament (2007 T20 World Cup) was a dream tour for us. We never thought a bunch of youngsters could achieve such a feat, that too against Pakistan. I think the India-Pakistan rivalry always brings a tidal wave of emotions and is one the most anticipated clash in the World Cup," he concluded.
