Asia Cup 2023: Asia Cup 2023 has started. The tournament started with the match between Pakistan vs Nepal. This match was played at Pakistan’s home ground Multan Cricket Stadium, in which host Pakistan started the tournament by winning by 238 runs. In this big tournament, Men in Green captain Babar Azam played a brilliant inning of 151 runs, with the help of which Pakistan managed to set a target of 342 runs in front of Nepal in 50 overs. Former India international player Mohammad Kaif made a big prediction before the India vs Pakistan match. Let’s crack this.
Former Indian international player Mohammad Kaif targeted Babar Azam and said, “Babar Azam is not a big headache for the Indian team, the ease with which he played cautious innings against Nepal is not going to be so easy against India.” Showed confidence in Shami and Jasprit Bumrah and said that Babar Azam and Company may find it difficult to score runs so easily in front of these two.
Mohammed Shami was in amazing form in the series played against West Indies, while Jasprit Bumrah, who is returning to the ground after a long time, has also made a comeback by taking four wickets in two matches. Bumrah was made captain for the three-match T20I series against Ireland, where he took four wickets in the two matches he played. He also received the man of the series award in this series.
Mohammad Kaif said: “I don’t have any hesitancy to bowl with the new ball or the old ball. I don’t have an ego like that. All three of us (Bumrah, Shami & Siraj) are bowling very well, so it depends on the management on who will play. There is only one goal, to go and give our 100%, the result will come running to us if we give our 100%. So it is very important to focus and execute, it’s a very simple plan”.
