On twenty one Gregorian calendar month 2015, the Indian cricket board proclaimed the name of the cities which can be hosting the matches. Bangalore, Chennai, Dharamsala, Mohali, Mumbai,Nagpur and New Delhi are the venues together with Calcutta, which can conjointly host the ultimate of the event. City couldn't host a match owing to legal problems relating to the development of 3 stands at the M. A. Chidambaram bowl. VCA bowl, Nagpur hosted all B games and HPCA bowl, Dharamsala hosted all A matches. The Republic of India vs Pakistan match was scheduled to be vie at HCPA bowl. With the announcement that HCPA couldn't give the specified security for Pakistani team, the match was moved to Eden Gardens, Kolkata.

India vs Pakistan T20 tourney 2016, Match nineteen at Kolkata: will Pakistan break their curse? Both Republic of India and Pakistan continuously undergo nervousness once they area unit set to play, however somehow, Republic of India have continuously managed to induce past the line.

Pak vs India previous world cup record

India and Pakistan have clashed ten times in ICC tournaments. Republic of India have won all the matches, whereas Pakistan area unit still expecting their luck to shine. The 2 arch rivals can clash another time on weekday at Kolkata’s Eden Gardens, during a match that contains a ton at stake for each. If Pakistan loses another yet one more game to Republic of India in an ICC tournament, it'll not be termed as a surprise; they’ve been on the losing finish each single time. More so, Pakistan’s new found confidence is bent too. However what's going to it view them to cross the line, for once at least?

Republic of India vs Pakistan, ICCT20 tourney 2016, Match nineteen at Calcutta

Pakistan’s biggest drawback has been their inconsistency. They were poor throughout within the Asia Cup 2016, however their begin to the ICC World T20 2016 was whole contrastive. With a high order failing each different day, Pakistan walked in to the T20 tourney 2016 with only 1 modification — Ahmed Shehzad coming back certain Khurram Manzoor. The modification forthwith reaped advantages with Shehzad notching up a period, however what was additional encouraging for them was the contributions created by Mahomet Hafeez and Shahid Afridi.
Pakistan scored in way over two hundred against Bangladesh, however usually a team makes that a lot of in T20 cricket? Albeit they are doing it usually, it's impossible that they are doing it systematically. Pakistan would apprehend that to tame this Indian batting line-up that boasts of Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli, they'll want runs on the board, and for that, the top-order can need to click once more.

With the ball, Pakistan can face a large challenge. Mohammad Aamer has been their biggest hope for a moment; however the others have did not accelerate to the occasion. Success within the T20 tourney 2016 conjointly depends lots on however the slow bowlers perform and the way a lot of selection do the quick bowlers manufacture. Keeping this in mind, Pakistan don't even have a specialist spinner in their ranks, and that they can heavily have faith in their skipper Afridi to give along with his leg spin.

What specialist say about this match

The specialists of the game and even former players have time and once more termed Pakistan’s mental barrier in concert of the most reasons for not winning against Republic of India. Pakistan have continuously had the endowment to tame the simplest, however they need not been able to do this once they come back up against Republic of India. Even within the Asia Cup 2016 match at Dacca last month, Pakistan fizzled out with the bat, despite Aamer gap the door for them to form a comeback with a superb spell.
Pakistan would apprehend winning against Republic of India is hard, however not not possible. At Kolkata, they need lost only 1 out of eleven games across formats to Republic of India. However, it's the occasion that looks to induce the higher of them. On weekday, Pakistan won't be incompatible against India’s military posture however conjointly a crowd with strength of sixty six thousand people each. Republic of India and Pakistan continuously undergo nervousness once they area unit set to play, however somehow, Republic of India have continuously managed to induce past the line.
Pakistan coach Waqar Younis is spot on in expression it'll be Republic of India United Nations agency are in pressure. Indeed, it's Pakistan area unit coming back off associate emphatic win and Republic of India area unit trying to induce back on the winning track. However it'll be a brand new day, a distinct contest, ranging from the scratch, presenting each the groups to induce their A game forward and build progress additional in to the tournament.

Prediction - Weather, Pitch Report, Conditions

Eden Garden metropolis, atmospheric condition
The news is slightly regarding for cricket lovers in terms of the weather in metropolis. When a short sunny amount early within the morning, dark clouds took over and there was a lightweight drizzle for a short time. However, things cleared up a little and it's part sunny within the town at the instant.
Weather reports say that there is also an electrical storm on the cards and this might prove to be an enormous threat to the high-octane encounter. We might need to keep our fingers crossed and hope that there's a full game.

Pitch Report
Although the pitch at the Eden Gardens has been preponderantly batting-friendly to date within the tournament, it’s offered a little of help to the spinners. Considering the overhead conditions, the track might curtail a little owing to wet oozing in from the rain. This implies that the spinners might get play a little additional.

Drainage System
The system at the Eden Gardens is not at all the simplest and it's going to get tough if there's an honest quantity of rain. Simply last year, a T20 encounter between India and African country had to be abandoned owing to a wet parcel.
With the threat of rain around, there are high probabilities of a shortened match at metropolis nowadays. In such a scenario, India might have a small favorable position significantly if they're batting second. It’s here that the coin toss might play a vital role.
However, Pakistan is high in spirits courtesy of their emphatic convert Asian nation and can look to make on a good begin. Whereas there aren't any favorites going into the clash, the Indians might have a small edge considering their kind in recent times.
