Asia Cup already having once protected buzzers. In Dubai, Pakistan and India will clash again during the Super-stage of the opposition. The confidence of the place with the winner in the final we have a look at an insufficient way of possible battles.
Rohit Sharma with great ambition, having his two hundred and two fifties registered bat in his last 8 ODI innings. Rohit Sharma is one of the two openers in the world of cricket (the other being Jonny Bairstow) who has scored in the last one year above 1000.
He has recorded his runs at the overhead run a ball. Rohit is also a very big and good player who always raised the reputation of his game when there is a big event.
Hassan Ali has been the best choice of the Pakistani bowlers-in this time frame (for all bowlers who have taken at least 50 wickets) no other bowler except Rashid Khan has a best innings ratio (70 wickets in 34 innings).
Among all the best fast bowlers only Mustahfiz Rehman has the best bowling middling than Ali (20.55) during this period. Ali also picks up a wicket in every four overs- the best for any fast bowler in the world.
Rohit likes himself to play first, if Hassan is not able to fire the Indian opener in the first few overs, except some violent four-sided wounds and front-foot shots into the positions.
Usman Khan was unproductive in this group stage when the against to India in Dubai but observed as a serious talent by the pundits. He has been starting a hopeful career having picked 18 wickets in 9 innings and also being preventing at the same time.
He bowls mostly well with the new ball from over the wicket producing program across the ends. On the other hand, Shikhar Dhawan likes to take the attack to the fast bowlers in the first powerplay. He has been in a strong position with the last 30plus score in 13 of his last 14 ODI innings.
Will Usman try and bounce out Dhawan?
Iman-ul-Haq has already a good start of his career in ODI. Although he has not faced the hard challenge yet in his career from the best ODI teams, 4 hundred and 2 fifties in his first 12 ODI innings is an image of his talent and personality.
He has a good method and a much time to play his rounds. It will be attractive to see how the counters Jasprit Bumrah- one of the best modern talented ODI bowler in the world. He is one of the top 5 wicket-taking pacers in the world of cricket post the 2015 World Cup
In the list of bowlers’ number three is an important position, and if Babar Azam is facing Bhuvenshwar Kumar on Sunday, it will be same like when Imam-ul-Haq or Fakhar Zaman early back in the tower. Azam has not unsuccessful in his last 8 innings, extending back to Pakistan’s trip of Zimbabwe.
He surely has a method and personality to counter Kumar’s layer, swing, and perfection. Whether or not he will be able to do in the cauldron-like air of India vs Pakistan is a different question overall.
Ravindra Jadeja as awarded by the man of the match when he played against Bangladesh in India’s first Super Four match, return to the Indian ODI side after 14 months, things could be better for him.
On the other hand, experienced Shoaib has instrumental routing in his team to win against Afghanistan in their matching planner, his innings of 51* off 43 balls showing a confidence and peace.
So, when in shape Ravindra Jadeja plays against one of the best Pakistani players of whirl, one can suppose an interesting competition. Jadeja’s energy is perfect and limiting bowling.
With the two same to play toe-to-toe with each other in the middle overs when the Pakistani innings will need rushing, it will be interesting to watch who come out on top of the list. Can Jadeja upset Pakistan’s Mr. Dependable?
