India vs Pakistan, ICC World T20 Cricket Pick, Prediction, and Odds
On this super Sunday, World Cup winners and archrivals, India and Pakistan would face each other in their second super eight game in ICC World T20. Match is to be played on same ground as assigned to this group that is on R Premadasa Stadium on 30th September 2012. India won the title in the opening World T20 in 2007 by beating Pakistan in a thrilling final. Pakistan clinched the title in next World T20 in 2009 to become the second team to become T20 champions. However, it is different this time around; this will be like virtual semi-final for India who lost to Australia in its opening super eight match. Pakistan, on the contrary would be looking to win and make their position concrete to qualify for the semis. Regardless of what's at stake, India-Pakistan game is always an entertaining game to watch.

Pakistan batted poorly in its game against South Africa after bowling superbly and restricting them to a modest total, but still managed to win the game, thanks to late blitz by Umar Akmal and Umar Gul. Pakistan is equipped with arguably the best bowling attack of the competition with spinners like Ajmal, Afridi and Hafeez. With matches being played on same pitch, wear and tear would help their style of bowling. Their pace men too performed well and will be looking to repeat what they did against South Africa. Their batting is a bit more reliant on Hafeez and Nazir than it should be. Overall, Pakistan is a good side and extremely difficult to beat.
India played miserably against Australia and was outplayed in every department of cricket. Their strength, that is their batting flopped as it was not even to produce a fighting total. India has history of not winning a super eight game since winning the title and they'd like to improve on that. India has the team to do that, but the side is struggling with team combination. Their opening pair wasn't fluent in last game and we should see Sehwag coming back in this all important game.

India did play poorly against Australia, but they are known to be slow starters. With pitches becoming slower and lower and India's ability to play spin, I'd place my money on India to bounce back and make the table more interesting.
» Man of the Match Prediction
Opening has been a concern for India and first six overs would be crucial in this game. I see Sehwag coming back to the side and if he does, he is going to be a tough man to bowl to. Sehwag has good history against this opposition and if he gets going, there are only a few better bowling destructors in World Cricket.
