Quotes of former Indian Cricketers
Kapil Dev: As a bowler, I want (Jasprit) Bumrah to rule the tournament. I want him to step forward, take the responsibility of taking wickets and winning the tournament for India, become the player of the tournament. Bumrah has got the X factor and he will be decisive in the India Pakistan game.
Mohammad Azharuddin: India versus Pakistan is always a big game, there is much hype and anticipation that is built around the game. I would say India are clear favourites as they have just come out playing a competitive IPL in the same venues so they would have an edge over Pakistan.
Dinesh Karthik: I will go with India as the firm favourites to win the game. India is easily the more talented side and the players look like in the right frame of mindset going into the big match.

as a mentor he will be a huge plus for India in the World Cup.
Younis Khan: From Pakistan point of view, I am hoping that 5-0 record in T20 world cup will become 5-1. India Pakistan is a high-pressure match and only those who are able to deliver in such scenarios go on to become legends of the game.
