India and Pakistan will battle at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium on October 24 in a Super 12 stage match of the ICC T20 World Cup 2021. The two Asian giants have crossed swords five times in the tournament's history, with the Indian team emerging victorious on all five occasions.
Ahead of the ICC T20 World Cup 2021, Wahab Riaz spoke to PakPassion.net, where he offered his views on Pakistan's chances at the global event.
“They definitely have the ability to achieve that result," Wahab Riaz said. "If Pakistan plays to its potential, then they can beat any team in the world including India.
"Twenty20 cricket is such a format that the whole match can turn in the space of a few balls or even one incident and the Pakistan versus India match will be no different. If Pakistan play at their best, they can certainly beat India.”
