Shoaib Akhtar, before the start of the T20 World Cup, had said that Pakistan would not qualify for the semi-final round and after Pakistan lost back-to-back games at the start of their campaign, Shoaib repeated himself in another video saying that he had already predicted it.

Shoaib then went ahead in that video saying that India might qualify for the semis, but that’s the last stage they would be able to get to and they would return home a week after Pakistan returns. However, now in a new video, Shoaib Akhtar said something completely opposite and said that he is looking forward to see an India Vs Pakistan final.

Shoaib Akhtar thinks ICC and broadcasters will be very happy if India and Pakistan reach the final

Shoaib admitted that Pakistan proved him wrong by managing to qualify to top 4 and he insisted if both Pakistan and India get to the final, that will make the ICC and broadcasters very, very happy as that final will be a huge hit among the audience.

When India had played Pakistan at MCG in the group stage, more than 90 thousand people had watched the game at the stadium, but majority of them were Indian fans and when India returned to MCG to play against Zimbabwe yesterday, 82 thousand people were in the stands again.

If India reaches the final, the final will be a huge hit for ICC anyway because of India’s huge fanbase, but an India Vs Pakistan final will be an even bigger hit and Shoaib wants both these teams to clash in the grand finale of the mega event, which will take place in Melbourne next Sunday.
