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. Talking about T20 World Cup, India’s record against Pakistan is very good. There have been 5 matches between India and Pakistan in the T20 World Cup so far, out of which Team India has won all five matches. In this important match, India will come with its strong playing XI. Let’s take a look at which playing XI India will play against Pakistan.
This will be the opening pair
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.
This would be the middle order
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.
Rishabh Pant will be the wicketkeeper
Wicket-keeper batsman Rishabh Pant is sure to be selected in his team for number 5 in the middle order. At the same time, it is good if the names of Hardik Pandya and Ravindra Jadeja are confirmed for two all-rounders in this team.
Pandya and Jadeja will be all-rounders
Apart from bowling, both Hardik Pandya and Ravindra Jadeja also do great batting. There is no better wicketkeeper than Pant. Jadeja can turn the match even with the ball and Hardik is a game changer.
These will be fast bowlers
Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Mohammed Shami and Jasprit Bumrah will be included in this playing XI for fast bowlers. All these three bowlers are among the most dangerous bowlers in the world. Being in Bhuvi’s team gives experience. On the other hand, Shami is a wicket taker. Talking about Bumrah, he is the strongest bowler in the world in the death overs. There will be a war between many players over the only spin bowler of Team India, but it would be more appropriate to give place to Ravichandran Ashwin.
This could be India’s playing XI against Pakistan:
Virat Kohli (Captain)
Rohit Sharma (Vice-captain)
Rishabh Pant (wicketkeeper)
