Even though every team other than Pakistan is considered as a competitor, we as a cricketing nation have learnt to respect any and every team that plays good cricket, even if that team has to be our fierce rivals India.

Moreover, the mega event is scheduled to begin on the 30th of May and we are bound to see some of the best cricketers in the world go against each other to bring glory to there respective nations.
