India Vs Pakistan ICC T20 WC 2K16 Schedule and Venue Details:
World CUP T20 Second Group Stage

Wounded India look to bounce back against Pakistan
India up 10-0 against Pakistan at the World Cups
The world cup has just started and it seems one won’t have to wait for the business end of the tournament for the crunch matches as the match can’t be any less intense when it comes to ‘Mother of all the Clashes’ that is an Indo-Pak clash. Brought to the brink after the abject surrender in their opening encounter, MSD led India would like to win the all-important encounter against the arch rivals Pakistan (led by Shahid Afridi) and continue their winning streak against them. Moreover, it would bring their world cup campaign back on track after the upset loss against the black caps.
With their backs to the wall, Team India will settle for nothing less than a victory and that too, if possible, by a handsome margin. One more slip and this could mean curtains for the pre-world cup favourites in this edition of the world cup.
Though it would not be a cake in the park for the Men in Blue as Pakistan have registered a thumping win against the Bangladesh side in its opening encounter. Having faced huge criticism after their early exit from the Asia Cup, Pakistan are here to make amends.
This is certainly not a situation which India haven’t faced before. There have been many instances when India have been cornered but they have risen in a way only they can. Similar was the condition of Team India in the 2K7 when they had lost the opening match of the super 8 stage and that time too against the Kiwis. But India managed to keep that loss behind and lift what would be the very first T20 World Cup.
Eden Gardens: A not-so favorable (one) for India
Eden Gardens awaits the India vs Pakistan clash on the 19th of March with a poor history of Team India at this very venue against the neighbors. Out of the 11 matches played against them, India has managed to won just a single match. Contrary to it, they have lost 5 and managed to draw the rest 5. Thus India will have to put their best foot forward to overturn the not so favorable history.
ICC T20 WC 2K16: INDIA v/s PAKISTAN
India’s Batting v/s Pakistan’s Bowling
The memories of the first match apart, it is Team India’s batting line-up which is their stronger department. Looking at the other side, they boast of one of the best pace bowling attacks in the tournament spearheaded by Mohammad Aamer who has been in splendid form having rejoined the team post suspension after a gap of 5 years. It was he who had tortured the Indian top order not so long ago in the Asia cup. Hence the Indian’s would need to play sensibly and not lose too many wickets against this man-in-form.
The likes of Sharma, Dhawan, Kohli, Raina and the pair of Yuvi-Dhoni weaving magic again, the repeat of a batting collapse is highly uncertain. The other Pakistan’s bowlers who can creat some sort of trouble for the Indian’s are the 7 foot high Mohd. Irfan, Wahab Riaz and leggie Shahid Afridi.
India’s Bowling v/s Pakistan’s Batting
These are the departments in which both the teams are not the strongest. Though India have a largely improved bowling side which includes the likes of rising sensation Jasprit Bumrah and the man who is back in Indian clothing, Ashish Nehra. Ravi Ashwin is the leading spinner in the side who is ably supported by Ravindra Jadeja. Hardik Pandya adds muscle to both the bowling and the batting lineups.
As far as Pakistan’s batting is concerned, it is highly unpredictable. With the likes of Ahmad Shehzad, Mohd, Hafeez, Sarfaraz and the big hitting captain Shahid Afridi in the team, they can decimate any opposition, though they have a tendency to impode at certain times.
Looking at the teams, India go into the match as slight favourites despite the loss in their opening fixture, though an upset can’t be ruled out considering the unpredictability of the Pakistan outfit.
