Fans can watch the India vs. Pakistan cricket match live online as the teams meet up in the start of the ICC World Twenty20.
For India, the game is a chance to start with a clean slate after a string of difficult losses. After disastrous trips to South Africa and New Zealand, the team returned to its home continent Asia Cup, where they again faltered.
But after losing a warm-up match to Sri Lanka this week, India was able to find its winning ways again in a second T20 warm-up match against England.
They now go on to face rival Pakistan on Friday in a match at 1:30 pm GMT from Shere Bangla National Stadium in Dhaka.
Fans who watch the India vs. Pakistan game live online may see a rejuvenated Indian squad. Sachin Tendulkar, the Indian cricket legend who retired in November, said he is optimistic about India’s chances.
“I have no hesitation in saying we are a talented side and there are some special players in the team. I know that they have not been able to produce the kind of results or rather live up to the expectation of the people, but things can change,” Tendulkar said in Mumbai. “This is the time that I feel the team requires support. When you are winning, you are in a good frame of mind but when you are not winning and when you know a billion people are behind you, with you, the mindset changes immediately. That is the need of the hour.”
Tendulkar said India has recovered well from struggles in the past. He recalled 2003, when the team bounced back from a poor showing during a New Zealand tour to reach the World Cup finals.
“It is not about just the failures but the journey from failure to success and getting into the habit of winning, the things you are supposed to do. If you follow that process, the result takes care of itself. We just followed that process and we were able to get to the finals,” he said.
