Whenever India takes on Pakistan in the T20 World Cup it is bound to be an exciting contest. India VS Pakistan is always very awaited. India has the honors of the past in the T20 World Cup matches winning 5-0. Although India has had a great track record every new day brings new competition and so is going to be on the 24th of October. Pakistan has a few great T20 specialists as well which can bother India. Here is a look at the top 3 threats for India while they take on arch-rivals Pakistan: –
Shadab Khan is a Threat to India: –
Indian opener Rohit Sharma has had problems in the past with leg spinners bowling inside the powerplay. And this is exactly what Pakistan will be looking to exploit. Shadab Khan is one threat to the Indian Cricket Team. Shadab Khan has been playing freelance cricket over the years all over the globe. This has allowed him to experience the competition in the world. Shadab Khan has two good variations. One being his stock ball and the other ball being the googly. Shadab Khan bowls quicker through the air and he can be very lethal.
Hasan Ali is a Threat to India: –
Hasan Ali is carrying the weight of the Pakistani pace battery for over a year now. He has Shaheen Shah Afridi to help him out but other pacers haven’t stood up. Hasan Ali has good variations with the ball. He can also tonk the ball in the far end if required. He too has been playing freelance cricket. Playing different leagues all over the globe has given him a world full of experience. Hasan Ali has a well-disguised slower ball and his hard length bowling makes it difficult for batsmen. Hasan has been in the best of form recently and his performance against South Africa is noteworthy.
Babar Azam is a Threat to India: –
Babar Azam unquestionably is the biggest threat to India. He has scored over 2000 runs in the international circuit after the last T20 World Cup. Babar Azam is not a typical T20 batsman who has a 360 Degree game but he is more like a stroke player. His cover drive is similar to that of Kohli. Babar Azam’s game along the ground itself makes it difficult for the opponent. His vision to pick the gaps is supreme and so is his fitness. Babar Azam has become the face of Pakistan Cricket! Although his strike rate is not something that will scare the opponents he possesses a sense of consistency in his game.
