Though Cricket is an unpredictable game, India has a better chance of winning in the T20 format. Also, the absence of Shaheen Afridi will be a huge blow to Pakistan. The form of Indian middle-order batsmen can serve as a major factor in Indias victory. Despite not being the favourites, Pakistan Cricket Team has evolved as dominant in the T20 format. With the likes of Babar Azam, Mohammad Rizwan and Fakhar Zaman, they have a dangerous batting lineup as well.
