India Vs Pakistan: Here are some facts that this match is going to be Big in this T20

With their history, India and Pakistan will play one other in the forthcoming T20 World Cup 2021 Super 12 phases, and it is likely to be a belter of a match. Because of the political concerns between the two nations, India and Pakistan haven’t played any bilateral series, so they’ll only be playing each other in major events, which makes it more exciting.

India has also never lost to Pakistan in a World Cup match, with a score of 12-0 in India’s favor.


The most recent match between these two sides was during the 2019 World Cup, and India won that game as well, continuing their World Cup-winning streak over Pakistan. Here are three reasons why Pakistan can beat India in the T20 World Cup 2021 opener.

Pakistan has always been a team with a strong fast bowling unit, and left-arm seamers have been plenty in the country. The main weakness India has had for a long time is a lack of left-arm seamers in the roster, therefore they haven’t faced any quality left-arm seamers. Despite the fact that India has Lukman Meriwala as a net bowler, the crease would be a different story.

Incoming deliveries have been a vulnerability for Rohit Sharma and KL Rahul, while Shaheen Shah Afridi prefers to bring it back into the right-handers in general. Hasan Ali and Haris Rauf provide variation as the second and third seamers, respectively. Imad Wasim has been superb with the new ball. Shadab Khan’s leg spinners can be effective, and Mohammad Hafeez can be a valuable spin alternative. In general, Pakistan has covered all of the bases when it comes to bowling.

For India, there is a lack of a good sixth bowling option.

Hardik Pandya hasn’t been bowling well of late, which has left a lot of holes in the Indian team’s combination. India’s top five batsmen do not bowl much, thus Hardik Pandya, at number six, has been assigned the position of finisher and seam bowling option, both of which he can be quite productive with.

Hardik Pandya has been suffering from fitness concerns of late, and as a result, he hasn’t bowled, affecting India’s bowling combination. With only five bowlers in the lineup, Pakistan must target one or two Indian bowlers. Despite Virat Kohli rolling his arm over in the warm-up game, India will not have a quality sixth option in the bank, and it may come down to impacting India.

Fakhar Zaman’s Outstanding Performance

Fakhar Zaman was a key factor in Pakistan’s victory over India in the 2017 Champions Trophy, and he has been in superb form recently as the T20 World Cup 2021 approaches. In the first warm-up game, he scored an unbeaten 46 off 24 and followed it up with another 52 off 28 in the second warm-up game.

With his ability to take on spinners in the middle overs, he can be a game-changer for Pakistan, and India is unlikely to put R Ashwin in the playing XI, making his argument even stronger. He has the potential to be the impact player Pakistan requires at the top of the order.
