Indian team has never lost to Pakistan in T20 World Cup history, in such a situation, Virat Kohli has the responsibility of maintaining this glorious history of Team India, while on the other hand Pakistan captain Babar Azam would like to change his bad history this time. Team India has defeated Pakistan in the last five matches of the T20 World Cup before this match.
Indian team stronger than Pakistan
There is no doubt that Team India is looking stronger than its opponent Pakistan and Indian players in UAE participated in IPL 2021, which will also benefit the team. However, in the T20 format, one or two players can also turn the match and such players exist in Pakistan. Talking about the Indian team, the team’s batting, bowling everything is looking perfect. At the same time, the strategy of Dhoni, who was included in the mentor team, will also prove beneficial for the Indian team.
Talking about the Indian batting, there is more than one batsman in the team. Among the batsmen, KL Rahul, Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli, Suryukmar Yadav, Rishabh Pant, Hardik Pandya can flaunt any bowling line, while Ravindra Jadeja can also do wonders in the lower order. On the other hand, when it comes to bowling, Bumrah, Shami, Jadeja, Varun Chakraborty can prove fatal against any batting order.
Team India needs to beware of some Pakistani players in which top order batsman Mohd. Rizwan, Fakhar Zaman and Babar Azam are included. These three have the power to score runs for Pakistan and it will be necessary to rein them in. At the same time, experienced batsmen Shoaib Malik and Mohd. Hafeez can also bat well. If there is a need to avoid Shaheen Afridi in the bowling, then Imad Wasim and Shadab Khan have a lot of potential. Imad, a left-arm spinner, has a stellar record in the UAE. Veteran Shoaib Malik and Muhammad Hafeez will also be desperate to take revenge on India.
Pressure on both India and Pakistan
There is no doubt that there will be heavy pressure on both the teams in this great match between India and Pakistan. Although Indian captain Kohli has said that he will take it as a normal match, but all the Indian cricket fans want to see Pakistan losing in any case and Team India cannot deny this truth.
In this match, the pressure will not only be on Kohli but on every Indian player who will take the field against Pakistan. On the other hand, if we talk about Pakistan, then this team will definitely try to recover from the continuous defeat in the T20 World Cup and this pressure will not reduce in itself.
