In the same context, former Pakistan skipper Younis Khan has added that Pakistan can turn tables against Indian this time and better up their records.
It is known for all that India boasts of a 5-0 record in the T20 World Cup against Pakistan but Khan added this record can go 5-1 for Pakistan this time around.

MS Dhoni has been a big factor always: Younis Khan
Khan, who led Pakistan to the T20 WC title in 2009, added that the presence of MS Dhoni in the dugout is itself a big factor of threat for Pakistan. He has the ability to keep the environment around him calm in high-pressure games and hence he will be a huge bonus for the team. Also, MS has won all the ICC titles for India and hence he remains a plus for the men in blue.
“When you have a player like MS Dhoni in the dressing room, as an opponent you always dread that. Even before in our games, Dhoni has been a big factor, he has the ability to calm the environment, and in a high-pressure game that is a huge bonus. Dhoni has won many titles and as a mentor, he will be a huge plus for India in the World Cup,” added Khan.
The high-pressure clash between India and Pakistan is all set to take place in Dubai on October 24 and it remains to be seen how teams each other in the high-octane clash.
