Recalling India's historic triumph at the 2007 T20 World Cup, former Indian speed bowler Ajit Agarkar said young people never believed they could achieve something so extraordinary.

MS Dhoni led India to historic triumph at the 2007 T20 World Cup, where the Asian giants beat their big rival Pakistan in a thrilling final. India overcame the disappointment of the 2007 World Cup debacle and fought with a young team to win the inaugural edition of the T20 World Cup, which has become one of the most successful cricket tournaments. successful in the world.

Ajit Agarkar was one of the few high-ranking members of the party as Sourav Ganguly, Sachin Tendulkar and Rahul Dravid, among others, decided to miss the T20 World Cup. Agarkar played 3 matches but made crucial contributions including a 9-ball 14 against Pakistan in the group stage.

India will begin its campaign against Pakistan mainly on October 24 in Dubai.

"I think the India-Pakistan rivalry always brings a tidal wave of emotions and is one the most anticipated clashes in the World Cup.

"The stakes are always high when India and Pakistan play together but going by Team India's current form and taking the stats into consideration, I don't think Pakistan will pose that much of a challenge.
