WT20: All eyes on Eden Gardens as India, Pakistan face off

Kolkata, Mar. 19 : In one of the most awaited and exciting fixture of the T-20 World Cup, the Indian Men's team will face Pakistan at Eden Gardens in Kolkata this evening.

After losing the first ICC World T20 Super 10 clash against New Zealand at Nagpur by 47 runs, the Mahendra Singh Dhoni-led Team India will play under pressure to register a win against their arch rivals.

On the other hand, after having won their first match against Bangladesh by 55 runs, the Pakistani side will be all confident when they face the men in blue.

Survival at stake as India take on Pakistan in ICC World T20

Kolkata: Jolted by the shock loss to New Zealand in the opening game, India will be fighting a survival battle quite early in the tournament when they take on arch foes Pakistan in what is being seen as the marquee clash of the ICC World Twenty20 here.

The hosts, who started clear title-favourites, were in for a blow in the first match itself when New Zealand's spinners bamboozled their famed batting line-up on a turning Nagpur track.

As a result, the world No. 1 side is staring at an early elimination should it lose to Pakistan in the high-voltage game on Saturday at the Eden Gardens.

Johannesburg, Mar. 14 : Australian fast bowler Josh Hazlewood believes that his side are lagging behind the other teams when it comes to the shortest format of the game, suggesting that his T20 side would serve better if they play more matches before heading into big tournaments.

The 25-year-old said that Mahendra Singh Dhoni's side had prepared well for the tournament by playing a lot of T20 games, Sport24 reported.
