IND vs PAK: Shami strengthens India’s bowling
The Indian team has been winning all bilateral T20 series for some time now. However, the team failed to achieve the title of Asia Cup 2022. After winning all the matches of the group stage, the team lost in the Super-4, due to which it did not get a chance to play in the final match. In such a situation, Team India will make every effort to perform well in the T20 World Cup 2022.
The batting line-up of the Indian team looks very strong. Suryakumar Yadav is a successful batsman with more than 800 runs in him. Apart from these, Virat Kohli and KL Rahul can also be seen performing well for the team. At the same time, the eyes of the fans will be on Rohit, as he has not been able to perform well for the team in the last few matches.
After which now the fans will be hoping that he can show his old form against Pakistan. On the other hand, before this match, the team looked weak in the death overs. But in the practice match against Australia, Mohammed Shami has put an end to this weakness of the team by bowling well in the death overs.
The middle order can be the weakness of the Pakistan team
Pakistan team’s star bowler Shaheen Afridi has returned for the mega event. With his return, the bowling order of the Pakistan team will get a lot of strength. Last year he was the only player who shook the Indian top order.
He was ruled out of the 2022 Asia Cup due to a knee injury, but is now fully fit to play the T20 World Cup. In such a situation, the fans of the Pakistan team and the team management will hope that he once again destroys the top order of India and gives victory to the team.
At the same time, the team’s batsmen also left no stone unturned in the team’s preparations for the big match. However, the inexperienced middle-order of the Pakistan team can be a matter of concern against India. In such a situation, Pakistan’s middle order will be tested in this tournament. But the team has Babar and Rizwan to bat at the top of the order.
