India vs Pakistan - The Key Battle of the Asia Cup T20 2016
With Mohammed Amir and Virat Kohli being the focus of attention on 27th of February. The upcoming match will also serve as the forerunner to the two team's much-awaited battle in the World Cup.
The India vs Pakistan T20 cricket rivalry has a controversial legacy of its own, not to mention the political tension involved whenever the two arch rivals face each other on the green ground. But the most interesting aspect will be whether rehabilitated Mohammed Amir gets to play in final eleven.
Making a comeback after serving a five-year punishment for spot fixing, Amir played his first return match against New Zealand and this extremely talented player will definitely come out all canons blazing against the Blue batsmen. Virat Kohli and Shikhar Dhawan have already welcomed Mohammed Amir's return but nothing is known as to what other players including captain think about his surprising return.
The Board of Cricket Control in India has adopted a no tolerance policy imposing a ban on talented players like Ankeet Chawla, Chandila and Sreesanth who have no hope of returning to the international or even home based cricket teams.
For Mohammed Amir, though, solid performance in India-Pakistan match will help him regain some respect not only among the cricket fans in the Subcontinent but also in the dressing room.
As far as the preparation is concerned, both teams have been prepared considering the number of matches they have played in the past six months. India already started their World Cup preparation with a bang, having defeated Bangladesh in their maiden match of the series.
Pakistani team, on the other hand, is coming straight after playing PSL which keeps it ready and warm. India has never lost to Pakistan in big tournaments but such has not been the case in the Subcontinent event where the Green squad has performed extremely well. India and Pakistan is going to happen exactly after 370 days when India defeated Pakistan by 50 runs and this is going to be really exciting.
