In a nail-biting contest on 29 August 2022, India defeated Pakistan by 5 wickets in hand and only two balls left.

The two sides gave their best and beat every bush to win the match. In this race, the Indian team defeated Pakistan by a very thin margin. Although the Pakistani team could not win the match, they got appreciation from cricketing fraternity around the world.

While batting first, Pakistan could not set a big target and everyone was thinking that India will win this match easily, but Pakistan bowlers gave a tough competition to Indian batters. Some players from both sides made every effort to win matches for their respective teams. On one side where Naseem Shah and Muhammad Nawaz tried their best, on the other side, Indians middle order kept their nerves in control, understood the situation and played accordingly and won match for their team. Jadeja and Hardik Pandya from the Indian side played match winning innings and took away the hopes of winning from Pakistani fans.  

Naseem Shah who is still a youngster and new to this format surprised everyone by his bowling against the Indian side. He played the 2nd T20 of his life against the mighty Indian team. Muhammad Nawaz who took 3 wickets against India has an economy rate of 7.22 and has 31 wickets in 32 T20s. He could repeat the same performance and prove to be dangerous for Indian batters. While Dahani is out of the match against India, we should keep an eye on who will replace him. Some are saying that Pakistan will play 4 pacers against India. While the Pakistani captain who is little out of form will be looking to make a comeback against India. Shadab Khan will be very crucial in this match as he is very economical in bowling and can bat too. Khushdil and Asif Ali should not be ignored as well as they can do very clean power hitting.

Indian side will be missing Jadeja as he too is out of the Asia Cup 2022 due to his knee injury. Indian bowling unit looks strong as they destroyed Pakistani batting lineup in their first clash of Asia cup 2022. They will be looking to repeat the same performance they gave in the 1st match. Indian is lacking in Spin department while in the batting department, they have the likes of Virat Kohli, who has an average of 50.8 in T20s and has 3402 in 101 T20 matches, Rohit Sharma and Suryakumar Yadav who are in good touch these days and can hit big runs against their opponents. Pakistani bowlers will have to give their best to contain Indian batters. KL Rahul who is in bad form, will be trying to make a comeback. So, he must be seen as a danger from the Pakistani side while Chahal, Bhuvneshwar and Arshdeep Singh must be seen as a threat too.

Considering the previous performance , Indian Team looks favourite for this match but Pakistan can surprise it’s arch rival as they are thirsty of taking revenge. So they’ll be doing every kind of effort to win the match

Though they have played so much cricket in the ODI format, they clashed for only 11 times in the T20 format and most of those games were not bilateral matches but the event matches. India has 7 wins in this format against Pakistan while Pakistan has only 4 wins against India.

India and Pakistan clashes always keep the fans on both sides excited. There is this different kind of craze for this match, just recently, the ICC admitted that India and Pakistan match at the MCG is a sold out. This single thing shows how crucial this match is for fans on both sides.

The Indian team is considered as one of the most successful teams in the T20 format. Thus far, they have played 179 T20 matches out of which they won 114 while lost 57 and 3 ended in a tie. Though the Indian team’s performance did not meet the expectations of the Indian fans, they will be looking to make a comeback in this T20 World Cup 2022. India has some players in their team which are considered best of best all over the world. Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma are two of such players. Virat Kohli’s average against Pakistan is just exceptional. Virat Kohli is on 3rd spot on the list of most runs in international cricket by Indian players while Rohit Sharma can provide an explosive start. KL Rahul is not in his best form these days but he is very dangerous, who on a very good day can destroy the opponents bowling. Suryakumar Yadav is considered the Mr.360 of the Indian team as he has a variety of shots. Hardik Pandya is a brilliant finisher of the Indian team who is a fine bowler too. The return of Harshal Patel and Jasprit Bumrah will strengthen the pace bowling attack of the Indian team.

The Indian team is looking like a very balanced side who can turn things up for their opponents especially when the opponent is Pakistan.

Talking about the Pakistani team, they have been consistently performing in the T20 format from previous few years. Pakistani captain, Babar Azam, is a magnificent player who has emerged as the main player of the Pakistani team. He was no 1 batsman in the T20 rankings but just few days ago, Muhammad Rizwan, another brilliant player of the Pakistani cricket team, replaced Babar Azam. Rizwan is averaging more than 71 in the T20 format since 2021 and has been a brilliant opener. While the middle order will be handled by Haider Ali, Shadab Khan, Asif Ali and Khushdil Shah or maybe Iftikhar Ahmad. Muhammad Nawaz, as we have seen in the Asia Cup 2022, can score some important runs for his team if needed. He is brilliant with ball as well. Shadab Khan and Muhammad Nawaz are very fine all-rounders. Pakistani pace bowling is world famous these days. With the return of Shaheen Afridi in the team, the pace bowling department of the Pakistani team will become more lethal. Haris Rauf, Naseem Shah and Muhammad Hasnain, all these bowlers can easily bowl above 140kph. This combination of lethal bowling and batting attack, makes Pakistan a very dangerous side in the T20 World Cup.
