New Delhi. Sunday is the evening time and the match of Pakistan (India vs Pakistan). What can be a better opportunity for cricket lovers to enjoy the match. Team India has everything in great form, a banging team and a wonderful record. Whereas in the ODI and T20 World Cup, Pakistan’s team has been yearning for victory against India for the last 29 years. It does not seem that this time also his dream will be fulfilled. Team India is eager to beat Pakistan for the sixth time in the World Cup.
The veterans of both the camps are claiming victory for their respective teams. But neither captain Virat Kohli nor Babar Azam has spoken about the victory. Virat has said that his team is ready for this big match. While the Pakistani captain has been reiterating that he is not worried about the poor record against India in the World Cup, but is currently trying to remain calm.
India’s upper hand over Pakistan in the World Cup
If we talk about the ICC ODI and T20 World Cup, then India has won all the 12 matches against Pakistan. Since the start of the T20 World Cup in 2007, the Indian team has defeated Pakistan in all five matches and Virat Kohli’s team is trying to continue this winning campaign here as well. India has won all the matches in the T20 World Cup under the leadership of MS Dhoni, who is here to support Kohli as a mentor.
The challenge of reviving its existence on Pakistan
There will be more pressure on Pakistan than on India. Players like Shaheen Afridi, Rizwan, Haris Rauf and Babar Azam not only have the responsibility of breaking the myth related to the World Cup against a world-class team, but they also have to change the perception of the cricket world about Pakistan, which has led to England and New Zealand recently. I had canceled my Pakistan tour. Pakistan cricket is facing an existential crisis in the last few years and in such a situation, the match against India may take some life in it but it will not be easy.
Top 5 batsmen are India’s strong side
Indian players are entering this tournament by playing in the IPL in UAE while Pakistan has been playing its home series here. The strong side of Indian batting is its top 5 batsmen Rohit, KL Rahul, Kohli, Suryakumar and Rishabh Pant. This is such a batting order that can trouble Afridi, Rauf, Hasan Ali, Imad Wasim, Shadab Khan fiercely. Jasprit Bumrah, Mohammed Shami, Ravindra Jadeja and Varun Chakraborty are set to be selected in the bowling department. Bhuvneshwar Kumar’s experience can give him priority over Shardul Thakur. If extra spinner is to be kept, then Ravichandran Ashwin will get priority over Rahul Chahar. Live score of India vs Pakistan match from 7.30 pm News18 Hindi Cricket and T20 World Cup page.
