ICC T20 World Cup IND vs PAK: If India get Babar Azam Out Early, Pak Batting line-up can fall like a house of cards

ICC T20 World Cup IND vs PAK: Team India will face Pakistan in the first match of ICC Cricket T20 World Cup. England Spiner Monty Panesar believes if Indians can get Pakistan Skipper Babar Azam early, they can easily knock down the rest of the batting order.

“If India bowlers get rid of Babar Azam early, they can destroy Pakistan like a pack (house) of cards,” Monty Panesar said to TOI in an interview.

“Pakistan are really good on UAE tracks. They have a good bowling lineup with Shaheen Afridi in the side. They have a solid batting lineup with Babar Azam in the side. They have all the basics covered. You just can’t predict Pakistan. Only Pakistan can beat Pakistan.

“On their day, they can beat any team in the world. Pakistan are really motivated this time and wouldn’t spare any team. But India will have an upper hand, considering their overall records against Pakistan. Pakistan will be under pressure, not India,” Monty Panesar concluded.
