“I have a feeling Pakistan and India will play in the T20 World Cup final and India will lose to Pakistan. Conditions in UAE will favour both India and Pakistan,” Shoaib Akhtar told Sports Tak on YouTube.
Pakistan are also set to clash with India in the group stage of the event. Group 2 of the mega event includes former champions India and Pakistan, New Zealand, Afghanistan and the other two qualifiers from Round 1.
