Its India Vs Pakistan on Sunday 24 October. It is not just a game but more than that. It is the game when world stops, it happens in years and fans from both the countries are excited not only fans but players too feel the pressure. So, in this high-pressure game we all expect players to perform well. In this article we will see 5 key player battles to watch out for in India Vs Pakistan game.
#5 Rohit Sharma Vs Shaheen Afridi
Rohit Sharma is opening batsman in Indian team; he is also vice captain of India. On the other hand, Shaheen Afridi is Pakistan’s young fast bowling sensation. It will be one of the most interesting battle of the game as Shaheen Afridi is left-handed fast bowler and Rohit Sharma we all know suffers a little bit against Shaheen Afridi. So, it will really be an exciting thing that how in form Rohit plays to Afridi.
#4 Ravindra Jadeja Vs Imad Wasim
Ravindra Jadeja is left arm spin all rounder and Imad Wasim is also spin all-rounder. Although there are very less chance for them to face each other but still it will be a battle of who is a better all-rounder. We all have seen them performing very well for their teams in past few years. So, it will really be an exciting battle to watch out for.
#3 Jasprit Bumrah Vs Babar Azam
Jasprit Bumrah is India’s most successful fast bowler in recent times and Pakistan captain Babar Azam is in his career best rankings and stage. It will be really an exciting battle to watch out for and how Babar will play to one of the world’s best bowlers. Jaspreet Bumrah with is in swinging yorkers can put Babar Azam in trouble in power play overs.
#2 Pakistan’s middle order (Shoaib Malik and Mohammad Hafeez) Vs Indian Spinners (Ravindra Jadeja and Varun Chakravarthy)
Pakistan’s middle order consists of Shoaib Malik and Mohammad Hafeez will likely face Indian spinners in middle overs where match can be in a very crucial stage. Ravindra Jadeja is confirmed but there is still a doubt that who will play as a second and proper spinner most probably Varun Chakravarty. We can see an exciting battle there with experienced muddle order batsmen of Pakistan and young spinners of India. I think experience will dominate the young talent.
#1 Virat Kohli Vs Babar Azam
No.1 in our list is probably the best battle in world cricket right now and we should be thankful to T20 world cup that we will witness it on 24 October. Although we will not see them bowling to each other but it will be a mental battle that who will win the match, who will score more runs, who will be a good captain. Virat Kohli and Babar Azam both are captain of their teams and currently the best batsmen of this era. It will be in my opinion is No.1 battle to watch out for.
