This cricket legend predicts end of Men in Blue’s winning streak

West Indies batting great Brian Lara said it was India’s tournament “to lose” ahead of the Men in Blue’s ICC T20 World Cup opener against Pakistan. It is India’s World Cup to lose, Lara said, adding that he saw them in the knockout stages and was up to them how they progressed from there.

He said what Pandya brought to the Number 6 spot was not something one could create overnight. Kohli said Hardik was getting better in terms of his fitness and could bowl at least two overs at a certain stage. Speaking about his lack of bowling ability for the time being, Kohli said they had considered a few other options to chip in with an over or two

What does the weather say?

The weatherman has predicted clear skies with the temperature hovering around the 28-33° Celsius mark. While the wind speed will gradually come down as the match progresses, dew is likely to play a significant role in the latter stages.

Visibility also remains at an excellent 16 km, while humidity is predicted at 66%.

Will India Take Hardik Pandya Gamble?

In terms of squads, India and Pakistan both have balanced sides. However, India having too much choices also faces some problems.

Hardik Pandya hasn’t bowled in the longest time, and played a specialist batter for Mumbai Indians in the recently-concluded IPL 2021 with not too much success.

‘Pakistan Is Dangerous Team, They Can Defeat Anyone’ – Kapil Dev

Kapil Dev said it’s all about handling the pressure at such a big stage. He opined that Pakistan can come out victorious if the Men in Blue fail to handle the situation.

On the field, such things [which team will dominate] don’t matter. Both teams will be under pressure, thus it will be interesting to see who will handle the pressure well

Kapil told ABP News

The only thing is to perform well under pressure. Pakistan can win this match also if the Indian team is unable to handle the pressure.

Anticipated Rivalries

  1. Virat Kohli vs Shadab Khan. India captain Virat is a master of his craft but more often than not he has fallen prey to leg-spinners. Pakistan has a magician in Shadab Khan who spins misty webs around the batters who fail to read the turning ball. Can Kohli break the jinx and surprise Shadab on Sunday? Or will it go all South for the Indian captain, we’ll wait and watch. – “NEWS18”
  2. Jasprit Bumrah vs Babar Azam. Skipper Babar is currently the poster boy of Pakistan cricket. Be it a loss or win, the captain is the one who always hogs the limelight. He is in a great vein of form, especially in the shortest format in which he has scored over 2200 runs. To tackle him, India would get their frontline pacer – Jasprit Bumrah in action. The right-arm quick had a decent run in the IPL 2021 recently and the way Azam was undone by Kagiso Rabada in the practice game, the pace will be the tool to restrict him. – “NEWS18”
