Former Pakistan skipper Rameez Raja feels India will be under greater pressure when they take on Pakistan in their Twenty20 World Cup league match in Dhaka on March 21, as they would be keen to avenge their Asia Cup defeat.
“Many pundits believe that the way India lost the Asia Cup match in the final over it has left a scar on them just like Javed Miandad’s last ball six in Sharjah did many years ago,” Rameez told ‘Geo Super channel’. “I recall after Miandad’s six India never beat us in Sharjah, and I think Pakistan should take advantage of the Asia Cup win when they play in the World T20 Cup,” he added.
“Remember these players, especially Yuvraj and Raina have not been in great form off late, so there will a lot of pressure on them to deliver,” he said.
Rameez urged the Pakistan team management to take full advantage of their Asia Cup win. “I think in every team meeting they should recall that victory and create more self-belief in themselves. Especially before the India match.”
