"Whenever Pakistan and India play after a gap the intensity and excitement level reaches sky high. In recent years when we were playing regularly the intensity had gone down but now everyone is looking to Saturday and I can predict there will be mostly empty roads in both countries during the match," he added.
Aaqib felt the toss would play a vital role in deciding the outcome of the match.
"The toss would be vital. Because batting second under lights at Centurion is never easy and I would advise Pakistan to bat first if they win the toss keeping in mind the relative strengths of both sides," he said.
Aaqib had no doubt that India would miss the services of Virender Sehwag and now Yuvraj Singh.
"Yuvraj is a match finisher for them. They will miss him because whenever India is under pressure he has the ability to score runs and that is a big thing," he said.
