ISLAMABAD: Terming both the Pakistani and Indian squads balanced, former all-rounder Mudassar Nazar has said that the green shirts’ incredible bowling attack could put Indian batsmen to the test during the blockbuster T20 World Cup match today (Sunday).

Talking exclusively to Geo News from Dubai, Nazar said Pakistan has players who can turn the tide of the match. Backing the changes in the Pakistani squad, the former all-rounder said that it strengthened the team.

The Indian team is also a “powerhouse”, he said, adding that the Indian team has a strong grip on all fields of the game. He said the squad had an advantage of recently playing the Indian Premier League, which had improved their confidence.

The pitches in Dubai are batting friendly, Nazar said, advising the Pakistan team to adopt an aggressive batting strategy in the match.

Shoaib Malik’s experience against India and from playing leagues across the world will be beneficial for the green shirts, he added.

He further said that the senior players should help the juniors tackle the pressure during the match.
