Dubai: T20 World Cup 2021 will be played between India and Pakistan today. The eyes of the whole world will be on this great match. India is considered to be a strong contender to win the T20 World Cup this year and also win against Pakistan. This match will be played at Dubai International Stadium from 7:30 pm. The Indian team, adorned with legendary stars, is ready to make the Pakistani team with unknown faces again. India has never lost against Pakistan in the T20 World Cup.
These players will play the band of Pakistan
The last time both the teams met was in the 2019 ICC Cricket World Cup, where India defeated Pakistan. This time also Team India is seen in good form. She will go on the field to maintain her record. At the same time, Pakistan also has a good chance to improve its poor record. There are big players in both the teams. Those who alone can change the course of the competition on their own. 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. At the same time, 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)
