However, former Indian cricketer Kapil Dev feels that although one cannot predict the outcomes in T20s, but if stats are to be considered, India are far better than Pakistan. He while backing the Rohit-led side to win the game, saying that one who will play better win as it’s a game of fine margins.
“You can’t be sure about anything in T20. You can predict to some extent in ODIs and Tests, but it is very difficult to predict in T20s. I will say that our team has experience and they are better, but we were better last time as well. They played better than us. So, it’s quite difficult to say anything. Still, if you go into stats and players, Indian team is far better. But it all depends on how the side plays on that particular day,” Kapil Dev said.
