IND vs PAK T20 World Cup VVS Laxman Irfan Pathan Parthiv Patel Picks His India Playing XI for Clash Against Pakistan

New Delhi. The warm-up matches of the ICC T20 World Cup 2021 are over now. Some qualifier matches are still going on, but the Super 12 phase of the tournament will start from Saturday, October 23. On 23 October, where Australia will face South Africa (AUS vs SA) on one side. On the other hand, defending champion West Indies from Group 1 will face the champions of ODI World Cup 2019 England (WI vs ENG). The matches of Group 2 will start from October 24 with the much-awaited clash between India and Pakistan. Team India, which has defeated Pakistan five times in the T20 World Cup, recently started its preparations for the tournament by winning both their warm-up matches against England and Australia.

Before India’s opening match (IND vs PAK) against Pakistan in the T20 World Cup, former India cricketers VVS Laxman, Irfan Pathan and Parthiv Patel played a high-voltage match on October 24. They have predicted their respective playing XI for the team led by Virat Kohli. While choosing his team, VVS Laxman left out some common names, but included some surprising ones. Starting with the openers, he did not include Ishan Kishan, who impressed everyone with his scintillating knock in his warm-up match against England. Instead, the former cricketer went with the experienced duo of KL Rahul and Rohit Sharma as the openers.

Laxman said on Star Sports, “India has many options, but I will go with Rohit Sharma and KL Rahul for the opening. Virat Kohli will be at number 3 and Suryakumar Yadav will be at number 4. Rishabh Pant will come at number 5 and Hardik Pandya will come at number 6. This will be followed by Ravindra Jadeja at No. 7, Bhuvneshwar Kumar at No. 8 and Jasprit Bumrah at No. 9. Cricketer-turned-commentator for numbers 10 and 11, Laxman has named Varun Chakraborty and Rahul Chahar. Interestingly, he did not include Ravichandran Ashwin in his playing XI. The off-spinner had a good run against England and Australia as he managed to take two wickets and had a good economy.

VVS Laxman’s Playing XI: Rohit Sharma, KL Rahul, Virat Kohli, Suryakumar Yadav, Rishabh Pant, Hardik Pandya, Ravindra Jadeja, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Jasprit Bumrah, Varun Chakraborty, Rahul Chahar.

At the same time, Irfan Pathan has also selected his playing XI against Pakistan. Ishan Kishan’s name is also not included in Pathan’s playing XI, while all-rounder Hardik Pandya has been included, who has not bowled in the last two warm-up matches. Pathan has also not included off-spinners Ravichandran Ashwin and Rahul Chahar in the playing XI. They have included mystery spinner Varun Chakraborty and fast bowler Bhuvneshwar Kumar.

Ishan Kishan scored 70 runs while opening against England and kept wickets against Australia. KL Rahul continued his stellar form even after the IPL and razed the England and Australian bowling attacks in the powerplays in two matches. Mohammed Shami was the most impressive bowler for Virat Kohli and company with three wickets in the first game, while Ashwin bowled well in both games. He took two wickets in an over against the Australian team.

Irfan Pathan’s Playing XI: KL Rahul, Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli (captain), Suryakumar Yadav, Rishabh Pant (wicketkeeper), Hardik Pandya, Ravindra Jadeja, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Mohammed Shami, Varun Chakraborty, Jasprit Bumrah.

Former cricketer Parthiv Patel has made his prediction about India’s playing XI for this big match. The 36-year-old former player also feels that the management will have to choose between Bhuvneshwar Kumar or Shardul Thakur. Parthiv said, “I am sure Virat Kohli knows his playing XI, but probably not the name. I’m sure he knows what combination he wants to go with. The question for me would be whether you should feed Bhuvneshwar Kumar or Shardul Thakur.”

He further said, “Maybe Rohit Sharma and KL Rahul will open. Virat Kohli will come at number 3. Suryakumar at No. 4, Rishabh at No. 5. Hardik (even if he is not bowling) is picked as someone who can play the role of a finisher. Ravindra Jadeja, Rahul Chahar, Mohammed Shami, Jasprit Bumrah and the final choice will be between Shardul Thakur and Bhuvneshwar Kumar.

Parthiv Patel’s Playing XI: Rohit Sharma, KL Rahul, Virat Kohli, Suryakumar Yadav, Rishabh Pant, Hardik Patel, Ravindra Jadeja, Rahul Chahar, Mohammed Shami, Jasprit Bumrah, Shardul Thakur / Bhuvneshwar Kumar.

Let us tell you that the only chance for arch-rivals India and Pakistan to play on a cricket field is an ICC event, as the two countries have not played bilateral cricket since the terrorist attacks in Mumbai in November 2008. Along with this, there is also a fact that Pakistan has never won against India in both the ICC ODI World Cup and T20 World Cup.
