India have outclassed every challenging opposition team at the ICC events in the last one decade or so, but they have failed to solve the mystery of Black Caps.

Will anger and revenge be on Pakistan's mind when they take on New Zealand?  
IANS -
The animosity created by the Black Caps' last-minute cancellation of the limited-overs series in Pakistan in September has been too hard to digest for Babar Azam's players, and even the new Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) chairman Ramiz Raja, besides several former cricketers, including Shoaib Akhtar among others, have asked the team to go all out and take "revenge".

Having both endured opening-match losses at the tournament, the two sides meet in Dubai later on Tuesday, with the loser staring down the prospects of falling too far behind in the semifinal race.

The mammoth win in the opening match of the tournament is also Afghanistan's biggest win in T20Is in terms of run margin. Chasing a mammoth target, Scotland's George Munsey began by taking three boundaries in the first nine balls of the innings. Kyle Coetzer joined the act with two boundaries against Naveen-ul-Haq in the third over.
