Pakistan captain Babar Azam believes their arch-rival India will have a tough time at the ICC T20 World Cup event as they have played the short format a while ago.

“India will be under more pressure, as compared to Pakistan, during the T20 World Cup match as they have not played T20 cricket as a group for quite a while. India are currently playing Test cricket and after that, they will get busy with franchise cricket.

“The UAE is like our home ground and we will try to give our 100 percent on the field,” Babar Azam was quoted as saying by Cricket Pakistan.

Earlier, Babar warned other participating teams that UAE is like a home ground as they hold a record of winning 31 matches.

"For Pakistan, the T20 World Cup is like a home event as the UAE has been our venue for more than a decade. We have not only nurtured our talent and developed our side in the UAE but have also beaten the top sides in these conditions to peak to No. 1 in the ICC T20I team rankings,” he said.

“All the players are excited, motivated, and enthusiastic, and view this tournament as an opportunity to showcase our prowess and re-establish our superiority in the shortest format of the game in conditions that suit us best,” he added.
