Pakistan captain Babar Azam is confident that playing more matches in Dubai will put his team in greater advantage than India if they take the field for their opening league match of the ICC T20 World Cup on October 24.
Pakistan has had limited success against India in International Cricket Council (ICC) tournaments. The team’s only major breakthrough came in the final of the 2017 Champions Trophy.

“I know my team is full of confidence and looking forward to the match on October 24,” he said. The seven T20 matches against New Zealand and England will be important for us as we would like to win most of them. We will try to take the confidence and momentum of that win to Dubai.

Babar conceded that the condition of the Dubai Stadium would also suit Pakistan better than India. “UAE is like our second home and we have won many T20 matches there and became the top team in the world rankings. Yes, it will have an added advantage, I am sure it will motivate the players.
