India vs Pakistan 1st T20 Prediction Review on 25 December 2012 at Bangalore match.Pakistan and India today 1st T20 match of series 2012-13 in Bangalore here prediction results reviews previews and more information here so check before match both teams Pakistan vs India prediction and fans views.India have played a total of 3 Twenty20 Internationals against Pakistan and are yet to taste defeat against their arch-rivals. All their matches against Pakistan have been at World events. Their first meeting, which was in the World T20 in 2007, ended in a tie with India taking points from the game via a bowl-out. No one can forget their next game, which was the final of the T20 World Cup – a thriller in which India emerged victors. Their last encounter was in Sri Lanka in the 2012 edition of the World T20, which India won by a comfortable fashion.India’s meek surrender to England in the Test series at home and the ODI retirement of a Legend, Sachin Tendulkar, have left the fans of Indian cricket crest-fallen. However, to renew their spirits comes the ‘Mother of all contests’ – India v Pakistan. A series of two T20Is between India and their arch-rivals before the end of the year is just the right opportunity for the Indian cricketers to end, what has been a disappointing year, on a high and the series might also act as the antidote the Indian cricket fans were looking for. Other the other hand, Pakistan will look to end the hoodoo of not having defeated India in the shortest format of the game.

India have also not been as consistent as they would have hoped for in the Twenty20 Internationals in 2012, losing 5 out of 12 matches. India participated in the T20 World cup and lost just one game, which was to Australia, but such was the magnitude of the loss that they were knocked out in the Super 8s stage. At the start of the year, India, who played two T20Is in Australia, ended up level with the hosts in that series.While Pakistan haven’t been all that bad in Test matches this year, the visitors, just like India, have been inconsistent in the twenty over format of the game. At the start of the year, Pakistan lost a T20I series 2-1 to England in the United Arab Emirates. In June, Pakistan travelled to Sri Lanka and played two Twenty20 games and ended up squaring the series. As part of their preparation for the T20 World Cup, they took on Australia in a series of three Twenty20 Internationals at the UAE. Pakistan won the first game in a comfortable fashion, while the second match ended in a tie and saw Pakistan clinch it in the Super over before Australia roared back with a thumping win in the third T20I.
The opening slots are most likely to be taken up by Ajinkya Rahane and Gautam Gambhir. While the former has not played too many games this year, he is a promising batsman and going by his performance in the first T20I against England, Rahane does pack quite a punch. His opening partner Gambhir is the second highest scorer for India in T20Is this year. However, his strike-rate is not all that impressive and the way he struggled for runs against England, suggests that this series might turn out to be a final chance for the left-hander to redeem himself. Coming at number three for India is Virat Kohli, who has had a tremendous year with the bat and he will be the lynch-pin of the Indian batting batting order. Next comes Yuvraj Singh, who has been contributing his fair share with both the ball and the bat. Rohit Sharma has not been much of a contributor this year but he finds himself a place while Suresh Raina and MS Dhoni’s presence in the middle order gives India the fire-power required for the death overs.
Pakistani top-order makes for sorry reading, while most of the batsmen also do not average all that high. Skipper Mohammad Hafeez may have scored in excess of 200 runs this year, but a strike-rate of 97.6 can only be called criminal as does Shoaib Malik’s 92.3. Umar Akmal has batted decently although he too does not have a very high scoring rate. Nasir Jamshed and Imran Nasir are probably the only batsmen to possess good strike-rates although the same cannot be said of their batting averages. The return of Kamran Akmal into Pakistan’s scheme of things has not been a big help either nor has Shahid Afridi’s presence. While India’s bowling attack might not possess the fire-power, they might just have enough to handle the Pakistani batters.he presence of world-class bowlers like Saeed Ajmal & Umar Gul, useful resources like Sohail Tanvir & Junaid Khan and quality all-rounders like Hafeez & Afridi, give Pakistan a lot of variety in their bowling attack. However, the form of some of the bowlers has not been all that great. Saeed Ajmal is way ahead of the pack in terms of wickets and economy while Tanvir too has a similar strike-rate and has also given away very less runs. But the concern is with the rest of the bowlers, who have not been at their best in the recent times.
The Pakistan skipper, despite a good economy, has not contributed much in terms of wickets while Afridi’s form has been most disappointing. Captain Hafeez will be hoping that Pakistan’s rise up and produce something special, which they are known to do more often than not against their arch-rivals.
Pakistan and India arch rival match become today and their fans awaiting this moment before 5 years. India recent lost test series and cricket Legend Schin in ODI but his team progress well while Pakistan team in reset before 1 or 2 month so match some pressure in Pak team due to holidays. we hope all Pakistan squad players must fight for win but India is in full form for beat guests team at home ground.huge crowed come to stadium for watch who will win 1st t20 Pakistan vs India 2012?. stay here for more match updates we hope all the best Pakistan team but India may beat in this opening game.
Winning the toss will be crucial because dew may have an impact. If you see both the sides, they are quite the same. Their ability to play spinners is quite same: Mahendra Singh Dhoni.
Every match is a new match. We have a good strong side and we know that beating India in India will be a significant achievement. So we are focusing on this series as a new series: Saeed Ajmal.
