India vs Pakistan 1st T20 Live Streaming Star Cricket ESPN HD online will treat us with another cricketing festival as we just concluded India vs England T20 series. India was eager to have a series win to their name before playing the arch rivals Pakistan. But yet another failure to the Indian team gives an upper hand to the Pakistani team.
India was always believed to be a better team at home against England but they lost to England 2-1 in test series and lost last T20 to have a leveled 1-1 score in T20 series. England returned home with the last laugh and Indian think tank has much to think about. India has been the best team in the sub-continent since 2011 so can they continue the winning note against an Asian team or will this time Pakistan make full use of the pressure and turn tables on India?
Indian fans are already under a shock due to lot of defeats and above all great Sachin Tendulkar announcing his retirement from ODI cricket. This implies he won't be featuring in the India vs Pakistan ODI series which begins after the T20 series. We cricket fans salute this great sportsperson for his valued contribution to Indian and International cricket.
Coming back to the T20 series between India and Pakistan; Indian bowlers Awana and Dinda looked under pressure against England and were totally outperformed by the opposition. Do they have the make to bowl against the standards of Pakistani T20 specialist batsmen remains a question. MS Dhoni has expressed confidence in his bowlers and said that they need to be given more time to make a mark in International cricket.
As mentioned in one of our earlier posts, India and Pakistan have played only 3 T20 International matches amongst themselves and all three went into India's favour. So Pakistan is yet to beat India in T20 matches. This looks the best opportunity for them to open their winning account against India.
A special mention is required for Yuvraj Singh who won Man of the Series award in India vs England T20 series. He has proved his worth in T20 matches by providing important breakthroughs to India in almost all the matches he has bowled recently. He has also provided significant contribution through his batting and many a times he has turned the course of the game in India's favour. So at this juncture this struggling Indian team can't imagine a T20 win without Yuvraj.
Dhoni has been an integral part of the team in limited over versions and he has proved his worth over the time. Raina, Gambhir, Kohli and Rahane can be more consistent and give India easy wins once they get going. So a win here at Bangalore won't be easy for Pakistan but they are a strong team in T20 cricket and we can't write off this fact!
Stay tuned for more updates and don't miss a bit of India vs Pakistan 1st T20 live streaming on Star Cricket and ESPN.
