India vs Pakistan Asia cup : Key players | Tickets
India has gone through a massive transformation since its embarrassing exit in the Super 12 stage. They are unbeaten in seven bilateral T20I series from November 2021.
Despite Pakistan’s emphatic victory over their arch-rivals in last year’s T20 World Cup, Watson feels the Men in Blue have a better chance of winning the upcoming fixture.
This match will give a clue for both teams before they lock horns in Melbourne on October 24 in the T20 World Cup 2022.
Watson said the winner of the India-Pakistan game will eventually lift the Asia Cup this year.
Both India and Pakistan have lost their pace spearheads Jasprit Bumrah and Shaheen Afridi to injuries but that won’t affect the spiciness and excitement that comes with an India-Pakistan encounter.
Virat Kohli may be going through a lean patch by his own lofty standards, but underestimating the former Indian captain in a match as big will be a mistake Pakistan will not be wanting to make.
The 29 year old Usman Qadir, who has a similar action like that of his late father, has not played any T20Is against India yet and would be looking to make an instant impression.
The last Asia Cup edition was played in the ODI format in 2018 and Rohit Sharma had led India to the title in the absence of Virat Kohli who was rested for the tournament in the UAE. And Rohit would be eager to repeat that success story this time around.
Rohit would be first up against pacer Naseem Shah who is known for his tearaway pace and the ability to swing and seam the ball. And Rohit, who can be slightly tentative early in his innings, needs to be extra cautious while facing Naseem.
Bhuvneshwar will be a genuine threat to the Pakistan top order which will be led by their captain Babar Azam, currently among the best batters in the world.
Babar Azam has a hundred and 26 half-centuries to his name in the 74 T20Is that he played, scoring 2686 runs. Though he is almost unstoppable when on song, Babar has in the past been troubled by a bowler like Trent Boult, who has the ability to move the ball in the air.
