Johannesburg: Pakistan's Twenty20 captain Shahid Afridi has expressed that a challenging draw would motivate his side to lift the coveted World Twenty20 title for the second time and in the process break the hoodoo against arch-rival India.

Pakistan, the 2009 champions, have been placed along with hosts India, Australia, New Zealand and a yet to be decided qualifier in Group 2 of the Super Ten round of the pinnacle event, which starts from March 8.

Pakistan have never beaten India in either a traditional one-day World Cup or the newer World Twenty20. India were crowned the T20 champions of the inaugural edition after defeating Pakistan in 2007.

Afridi admitted they have a tough draw but added that he was hopeful that the challenge would pump-up his team to win the title and beat India on the way, Sport24 reported.

The flamboyant all-rounder insisted that he didn't want to live in history and called on his side to overcome mistakes they make while playing against India in big events.
