On Sunday, India and Pakistan will play in what will undoubtedly be the biggest cricket match of the year (tomorrow). Due of their proximity and negative cricket history, two neighbouring countries will face off in the Asia Cup 2022 for Pak vs Ind match. On October 24, 2021, in Dubai, the Green Shirts played India in a Twenty20 World Cup game and won by a massive ten wickets. India will play it safe in the highly anticipated tournament as a result. India would have to exert significant effort to dash Pakistan’s expectations. The Green Shirts have a strong history of success in Twenty20 cricket.
Pak vs Ind | Babar-Rizwan a menace to India in Asia Cup 2022
The combination of Babar Azam and Mohammad Rizwan in the starting slot poses a significant challenge to the Indian batting lineup and might lead Pakistan to a repeat World Cup victory. Without a question, in the last several years, Rizwan has been the most dangerous Twenty20 player the world has produced. That’s because, throughout all three formats, Babar has consistently been the most dependable batsman. Since they have played together for a long time while opening the innings in T20, they both know how to handle even the best attacks with ease.
Rizwan is rough when it’s his turn, while Babar is always polite. India is one of the favourites to win the six-nation event, but the contracting characters will be a real threat to them. India might lose the game if they both bat for a few overs. Both are very reliable, know each other, and can put a lot of pressure on the Indians with their singles and twos, which are sometimes needed in T20 cricket.
Rizwan has always had a killer instinct in T20 cricket, no matter how his luck changed in longer games. This is clear from his recent time with Sussex. Rizwan had a great year in 2021. In 26 innings, he scored 1,326 runs, with 12 fifties and one hundred.
He also scored more runs than any other batter in the format in a single year. And the wicket-keeper batsman who was born in Peshawar will try to build on his heroics from the last game in the 2021 T20 World Cup. In T20 cricket in 2021, Babar had the second most runs after Rizwan. He has been the best cricket player in the world for about two years, and he hasn’t shown any signs of slowing down.
