Here’s what Babar Azam thinks ‘gives Pakistan edge’ over India
Pakistan and India will meet on October 24 in Dubai during the ICC T20 World Cup.
The Men in Green have been unbeaten in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) in their last ten T20 matches. Babar Azam thinks his team’s record in their last ten matches will give them the extra edge over their arch-rivals.

The two teams will look to start their campaign on a winning note, when they meet in Dubai on October 24th. Pakistan hasn’t been able to win a T20 world cup game against India. The two teams have met five times on previous occasions with team India winning all of them.
“Definitely we have played a lot of cricket in the UAE. These conditions suit us and we know how to play here. We need to keep things simple in all the departments,” Babar Azam said in a captain’s press.
He added that performing well gives you confidence and also hoped that his current form will benefit him. Babar has so far scored two centuries this year.

When asked to name one batsman and one bowler who will be the most successful in the T20 World Cup, the Pakistani skipper picked Kane Williamson and Hassan Ali.
On the other hand, Indian skipper, Virat Kohli, thinks of this high-octane match as “just another game”.
“I have always approached this game as just another game of cricket. I know there is a lot of hype created around this game more so with ticket sales and the demands for tickets,” said Kohli.
