To contribute to their historical rivalry, India and Pakistan will square off in the highly awaited T20 World Cup Super 12. Due to political tensions between the two countries, India and Pakistan have not played any bilateral series. As a result, they will only confront each other in major tournaments, heightening the drama.
In addition, India has never thrown a towel against Pakistan in a World Cup match, with a staggering score of 12-0. As recently as the 2019 World Cup, India and Pakistan met and India easily won to retain their winning spree against Pakistan. But things are looking sideways now and there’s a chance this time India might come out victorious.
Why Can Pakistan Beat India At The T20 World Cup?
How you ask, well here are a few reasons how Pakistan can beat India in T20 World Cup 2021.
Pakistan’s Strenuous Bowling
The incoming deliveries have exposed both KL Rahul and Rohit Sharma, not to mention that Pakistan now boasts a trump card who goes by the name Shaheen Shah Afridi.
Haris Rauf and Hasan Ali can help Pakistan’s pace attack in the middle overs, as can Imad Wasim and the rest of the team’s pace attack. When it comes to leg cutters, Shadab Khan is a strong option, while Mohammad Hafeez’s spin is extremely critical. In general, Pakistan’s bowling unit has done an excellent job. Pakistan’s fast bowling unit, particularly the left-arm seamers, has always been proven a strong point for the team.
However, the absence of left-arm seamers from the Indian squad could be a problem. India has net bowler Lukman Meriwala, but in the world arena, it’ll be a different story.
India Is Missing Out On Quality 6th Bowling
The hot-headed Pandya hasn’t been performing well, which has left the Indian team with many holes to fill in terms of lineup. Hardik Pandya, the number six batsman for the Indian lineup, was given the dual role of finisher and seam bowling option because of his potential to be very efficacious with the ball. India’s top five batting order batsmen do not bowl much.
Hardik Pandya has had recent health issues, so he hasn’t bowled much, which has an impact on India’s bowling lineup. Pakistan’s bowling attack must focus on one or two members of India’s bowling squad. Despite Kohli rolling his sleeves in the warm-up game, India lacks a performance required, which could have a significant impact on the team’s performance.
Fakhar Zaman Is In The Form Of His Life
While Fakhar Zaman was among Pakistan’s star players during last year’s Champions Trophy, his recent form has him poised for an even better T20 World Cup performance. In the first warm-up game, he went on to score an unbeaten 46 off 24 balls, and in the follow-up game, he tallied another 52 off 28 balls.
Zaman can turn the tide with his skills to dominate and snatch the game during middle overs.
R Ashwin is unlikely to be included in India’s playing XI, making things easier for him. Zaman could be the difference-maker Pakistan needs right now to sore to the leaderboard.
Clear your,r schedule for tomorrow guys, unless you’re on a mission to save the world from Nuclear War. I’m Kidding cold war is long gone but what isn’t gone is the epic showdown between India and Pakistan tomorrow.
