1st T20 Pakistan vs India 2012 Live Match Score & Updates | PAK vs IND Live Tuesday December 25, 2012
Match Overview & Live Updates
Here we are with “baap” of all cricket tournaments with Pakistan first ever tour of India, the first bilateral series between the two countries since cricket ties were affected after Mumbai’s attack in 2008. Pakistan is all set to take on archrivals India in the 1st T20 match of the two t20 matches that will be played during the tour. Just the plain fact that this tour is actually happening is a gargantuan achievement for the Pakistan Cricket Board and its chairman Zaka Ashraf. How many diplomatic and political channels must have been traversed, how many meetings arranged and attended, how many people cajoled and persuaded, and how many prayers said in the hope that nothing goes wrong at the last moment. The 1st T20 is being played at M Chinnaswamy Stadium, Bangalore today on Tuesday December 25 and the match will telecast live on 13:30 GMT, 19:00 local time in Banglore, India and 18:30 PKT Pakistani time.
While Shahid Afridi is dropped from the ODI squad, he is most likely to play both T20s. Mohammad Hafeez, Saeed Ajmal are confident they will be giving tough time to hosts. At the same time, India will have played both of their T20 matches against England, the result which might have some impact on T20 matches against Pakistan.

More about series
Pakistan coach Dav Whatmore has said off spinner Saeed Ajmal would be their trump card for the upcoming limited over series against India.
The 35-year-old Ajmal is ranked No 1 in one-day internationals and Twenty20s with 109 wickets in 71 ODIs and 69 wickets in 48 T20s.
Ajmals doosra that turns away from the right-handers continues to flummox batsmen, but he’s expected to have to share an extra workload in the one-dayer matches after the selectors dropped enigmatic all-rounder Shahid Afridi on the basis of poor form.
Former captain Inzamamul Haq, who has been appointed as a batting consultant by the Pakistan Cricket Board on a series-to-series basis, was expected to pass on batting advice before the team left for India on December 22.
