T20 World Cup: “Pakistan Should Bowl Second” – Shoaib Akhtar

Akhtar believes that this time it will not be easy for Pakistan to win this match. Because India will play with a new plan. After a 10-wicket defeat in the last game, India will come hard with better planning and that will make it difficult for Pakistan. Speaking about the match prediction, he said, 

“Predicting match results now is quite difficult. Pakistan should bowl second as pitch in Melbourne offers bounce to fast bowlers.”

The former pacer also said that there would be a full house in the stadium. He said that around 100 thousand fans will be watching the match in the stadium and 70,000 will cheer for India, so that will also make it hard for Pakistan. However, before that, both teams will compete in the Asia Cup in Sri Lanka starting at the end of August.
