T20 World Cup 2024: Kamran Akmal backs picks his favorite in IND vs PAK clash on June 9 in New York

India and Pakistan don’t play any bilateral series, and they face each other only in multi-national tournaments, which makes a game between these two teams very special. The last time these two played in the T20 World Cup 2022 at the MCG, it was an epic game. Virat Kohli played one of the best T20I knocks to take India home. The stakes for the IND vs PAK clash on June 9 are high, and all the tickets are sold.

With not much time left until the start of the tournament, former cricketers and experts have started predicting their favorite teams. Former Pakistan wicketkeeper Kamran Akmal was also asked by a fan during a Q&A session on Instagram about the favorites in the IND vs PAK clash. He boldly picked India, which has sparked a debate among the Pakistani fans. Notably, India and Pakistan have been facing each other in the T20 World Cup since 2007.

India have only lost one match against them, which came in 2021 in the UAE. Meanwhile, the Men in Blue have won six out of seven matches against Pakistan. Adding to that, India have won all the matches against Pakistan in the ODI World Cup. But in the last few years, Pakistan have given tough competition to India, which has made every match between the two teams a highlight of every tournament. Though only time will tell, who wins this IND vs PAK clash but both teams will put in everything to win it.
