ICC World Twenty20 2012 Preview - Pakistan

The thing about Pakistan is that you can choose to ignore them only at your peril. Whatever be the format of the game, this side is always in with a chance. Sure, they may not be favourites to win. But the lowest they are classified is the rag-tag of underdogs or even dark-horses. They are never deemed 'not in contention'. Ever. With ICC World Twenty20 2012 on the horizon, it would be silly to think that Pakistan do not have a shot at winning their second title in three years. Let us do the math.
