The International T20 Cup is all set to get underway from October 17. While there will be many riveting contests on display in the showpiece event, the India-Pakistan game on October 24 in Dubai, is the most awaited one. So far, the Men in Blue have dominated Pakistan in world events but Pakistan is keen to turn things around in the upcoming tournament.

As with every India Pakistan game, the predictions starts coming way before the match. Same has been the case this time around as well as several experts have given their predictions about the game. While many experts have backed India to win the contest, former South Africa all-rounder and Afghanistan Coach Lance Klusener has backed Pakistan to upset India. Klusener feels that Pakistan is a very unpredictable side and if India does not bring their A-game to fore, Pakistan is well equipped to stun the hosts.

“India-Pakistan is always a huge, huge game. This clash is not the one to be missed, especially in big competitions like World Cups. The Pakistan team has come a long way of late. They’ve produced some excellent batters. Their bowling will always be competitive. However, if India has a bit of an off day and Pakistan brings their best game, they can easily cause an upset, Klusener was quoted by ProPakistani.

Klusener further named three Indian players who can turn out to be the game changers for India. Klusener feels that Rohit Sharma, Rishabh Pant and Jaspirt Bumrah will be the players to watch out for from the Indian camp.

“Rohit (Sharma) is always there in the mix. He is always in the fight. He is somebody who stands up big in ICC tournaments,” Klusener said.

“Rishabh Pant as well. India are so so lucky that they have got somebody like Rishabh Pant who has been able to take over from MS Dhoni. He is fantastic and he’s got a huge huge future in the team,” he added.

“In the bowling attack, Bumrah is always there. He is always a handful on any surface. There’s so much ammunition that India has got to choose from,” he further said.
