New Delhi: A highly-anticipated clash of the on-going Asia Cup T20 is on February 27, when arch-rivals India and Pakistan will lock horns at Shere Bangla National Stadium.

Ahead of the high-profile clash, Pakistani all-rounder Shoaib Malik said that though Indian have the winning momentum, Pakistan could give a tough fight to their old rivals.

"Indian batsmen are very consistent but we have a good bowling attack. This is going to be a great game. This is going to be a big opportunity for players of both the teams, India-Pakistan matches always are," Malik told Aaj Tak in an exclusive interview.

Malik also believes that recently concluded T20 tournament, Pakistan Super League (PSL), might also help Pakistan players.

"Coming after playing the PSL straightaway, our preparation has been very good. There's no doubt India have performed very well in Australia and even vs Bangladesh yesterday, (but) I think it will be a great battle between two good teams," Malik added.

Interestingly, the 34-year-old also made it clear that that his wife Sania Mirza would cheer for Team India this weekend.

"We maintain the same status; she supports Team India and wants her husband to do well, perform well in the middle if he is playing."
