Chennai: The Indian team has 5 important challenges in the match against the Pakistan team.
Today is the most important match in the Asia Cup 2022 series. India and Pakistan, who have been selected for the Super 4 group, will face each other today.
Pakistan lost to India in the first match of the group stage. In this situation, Pakistan will take the field today with full speed to retaliate for that defeat.
The match between the two teams is scheduled to take place in Dubai today at 7.30 pm.
Pakistan captain Babar Azam.. Shame on not winning
Challenge 1 – Bowling
Last time India team took 10 wickets in the first match against Pakistan. But Chahal did not bowl properly in the match. Then in the match against the Hong Kong team, the bowling of the Indian team was poor. Avesh Khan, Chahal and others did not bowl well. This time the bowling of the Indian team should get a change. Otherwise it will be difficult to deal with Pakistan. If the bowling fails in this match, it must be said that India’s game is close!
Challenge 2 – Opening
Although the batting of the Indian team is good, the opening is not good. K . El Raul has not yet returned to the farm. Also, Kohli is still not fully in form. Also Rohit Sharma is not on form. The absence of 3 top order players in form is a problem for the Indian team. Last time too the top order did not play well. So the top order is forced to shine in today’s game.
Challenge 3 – Pakistan bowling
Also Pakistan bowling is back to full form. Naseem Shah has recovered from his injury. Thus he has a chance to play today. The Indian team has to deal with his bowling. Mainly the Dubai pitch was used well by Pakistan last time. The Indian team is forced to deal with the fast swinging Pakistani bowlers.
Challenge 4 – Team Selection
Jadeja will not play in today’s series due to injury. This raises the question of who Rohit Sharma will pick in the team against Pakistan today. The question has arisen as to who will be the player who will fill Jadeja’s place, so in the Indian team today, Rohit, K. L Rahul, Kohli, Surya Kumar Yadav, Hardik Pandya, Ashwin / Pant, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Chahal, Arshideep Singh, Avesh Khan are likely to play in the Indian team against Pakistan today. Deepak Hooda is also likely to play. He also bowls well.
Challenge 5 – Toss
The Indian team is forced to win the toss in today’s match. In Dubai, usually the chasing team is likely to win. In the second innings at the Dubai pitch, the game will turn in favor of the batting team. Thus Indian team captain Rohit Sharma is forced to win the toss today. If the toss is not won then the Indian team should score more than 180.
