Melbourne: The mouthwatering clash between India and Pakistan is set to take place tomorrow. Cricket fans are anxiously keeping their eyes on upcoming match to be played at the historic Melbourne Cricket Ground. Talks are in the air regarding the strategy of the men in blue. From a CEO to an office boy, all are giving their expert comments.
At the outset, India is favourite to overcome their arch-rivals, but uncertainty always looms in cricket. India should be careful because in the last T20 World Cup, Pakistan easily surpassed India.
At least on paper, India is a well-balanced side. In the last practice match against Australia, the Indian side kept their cool and won the match by a whisker. Suryakumar Yadav and Hardik Pandey will have to click if India wants to score a hefty total on the scoreboard. The determined Indian attack is set to tatter the Pakistani batting.
Pakistan, under the captaincy of Babar Azam, has done reasonably well in recent times. But the middle order is the issue for the team. In fact, the return of Shaheen Afridi will make their attack more potent. The men in green don’t have players of the caliber of SuryaKumar Yadav and Pandey who can score at a brisk pace. Pakistan is a strong team, and this side is known for playing unpredictable cricket.
Team selection is an issue for the Indian team. India captain Rohit Sharma believes in flexibility in the playing eleven and is not sure about making a couple of changes in every game during the T-20 campaign.
In the past year, 29 players were used by the Indian team in the T20 format. Players are preferred as per their current forms, Rohit said on Saturday, ahead of the clash against arch-rivals Pakistan.
The upcoming match between the two rivals will be full of entertainment. Cricket fans will get a chance to watch another absorbing match between the two great Asian sides. But rain may spoil tomorrow’s match.
