What should India beware of while playing against Pakistan!
Team India should be aware and should beware of few things and players while playing against Pakistan which if achieved well can be a successful series for India.Have a look & share your thoughts.
The India-Pakistan series has started and we are having a full series consisting of 2 T-20’S and 5 ODI’s since 2007.
The first T-20 had
been played in Bengaluru which unfortunately India lost. But India has
something to cheer as they have found B.Kumar and Rahane as the next generation
players for India.
Lets have a quick
glimplse on what India should actually be beware of while playing against
As already seen in
the 1st T-20,we need to work on our batting a bit more, hence it is
understood that Pakistan bowling is their main strength as it also compliments
its batting because when your bowling is good batting becomes good and vice
versa.Pakistan batting can be weakened if India bowlers bowl well and then their bowlers will have a difficult time bowling to India’s batsmen.
The real threats for
team India would be.
He has been top class spinner for Pakistan and he can be
very very dangerous bowler in any format of the game as everyone knows of him.
He has enjoyed a wonderful year of cricket and has found success in almost all
the matches he has played so far. If India can either play Ajmal and see him
off or attack him well then Pakistan bowling can be little rusty in the end.
He can be expensive; he can have a go at you and take loads
of wickets. We saw this when Gul was very expensive in his 1st over
and then came back strongly to take 3 wickets which was a cause of collapse for
India. India need to play him sensibly and not lose wickets against him, then
India can have a good outing against Gul.
This man has been a fighter for Pakistan in the T-20 format
even though he has not been that good in ODI’s. He has an excellent record
against India while playing the T-20 version of the game. His batting in the
middle is always a boon and his ability to bowl is a dual advantage. His direct
hits can leave you in tatters so India should be watchful against him.
He has been in bright touch with bat and ball. His opening
batting has given Pakistan a solid start at the top of the order which has
helped the others to place their innings well and even finish of things. He
himself can play till the end and attack as well as play safe according to the
situations. His bowling has been excellent and his captaincy skills in T-20
format has helped the team. Even in ODI’s he can bat and bowl on so India will
have to be careful against him.
After making a comeback to the national side, Kamran has
been a huge plus for his team. His ability to hit hard and play well has been
witnessed, he can take the game away from you and he is a match winner. If he
can be kept under control as he was in the 1st T-20 then it would be
good for team India.
Overall Pakistan bowling should be watched for then half the
battle would be won. If India can play the bowlers well their batsman will have
a good outing, even if India bowlers bowl well still the bowlers can be kept
under check. A good all round show from team India will pave the way for their
success in this tournament.
