New Delhi: T20 World Cup 2021 is going to start from October 17. Interestingly, India and Pakistan are in the same group. The T20 World Cup match will be played between India and Pakistan on 24 October. India is considered to be a strong contender to win the T20 World Cup this year and also win against Pakistan. Before this big match, it can be said that India has the upper hand in both the teams. However, Pakistan’s team has also performed well in the last few years.
This batsman is more dangerous than Kohli
The Pakistan team will face the biggest threat from a player, not Virat Kohli and Hardik Pandya, in the T20 World Cup match against India on October 24. This player is none other than India’s star explosive opener ‘Hitman’ Rohit Sharma. In the World Cup, Pakistan’s team will be more threatened by Rohit than Kohli. In T20 World Cup, if a batsman makes a few runs fast and or bowlers take wickets quickly, then it creates a big difference in the game. India’s performance in the recently concluded Test series in England was excellent, but captain Virat Kohli, who was the highest run scorer for the team, did not score a century for the last 2-3 years. He used to score century after century, but his performance has declined. Rather, Rohit Sharma is more dangerous than Kohli.
Rohit and Rahul will open
KL Rahul and veteran batsman Rohit Sharma are sure to be given a chance for the opening against Pakistan. Both these batsmen have been doing well for India for a long time. At the same time, captain Virat Kohli is fit for number 3. Whereas for the fourth number, Kohli will definitely give place to star batsman Suryakumar Yadav. If Team India’s top order is decorated with these batsmen, then surely a big score will be made against Pakistan.
India and Pakistan will clash after 2 years
Teams of India and Pakistan (IND VS PAK) will face each other after 2 years. The last time both the teams met during the 2019 World Cup. In that match, India defeated Pakistan by 89 runs. Rohit Sharma scored 140 runs in that match. Team India had scored 336 runs for 5 wickets. In reply, Pakistan’s team could only score 212 runs for 6 wickets.
Pakistan did not win against India in T20 for 9 years
There have been a total of 8 matches in T20 between India and Pakistan (IND VS PAK), out of which Team India has won 7 while Pakistan has won only one match. Let us tell you that the last time Pakistan won over India was in the year 2012. In such a situation, Pakistan’s team has been yearning to win over India for 9 years. The ICC T20 World Cup 2021 will be held in the UAE from October 17. 16 teams will participate in this tournament. Whereas the final match of this tournament will be played on November 14.
