The biggest match of this year is being played in the ICC T20 World Cup 2021. India and Pakistan are face to face. Babar Azam won the toss and invited India to bat first on the Dubai ground. Pakistani bowlers especially Shaheen Shah Afridi did not allow the captain’s decision to be proved wrong. By the time of 2.1 overs, both the Indian openers had reached the pavilion. India had lost 3 wickets for 60 runs in 10 overs. Everything has been good for Pakistan till now. However, if he sees India’s history in T20Is, then panic may increase.
Shaheen Afridi’s swing stunned the openers
Pakistan’s young fast bowler was ahead of the experienced Rohit Sharma. What a wonderful yorker in the fourth ball. Slightly turning inward. The pace and direction was such that ‘Hitman’ did not get any chance. He was caught in front of the middle stump. Afridi bowled the first ball to Sharma in such a way that he was helpless.
Afridi came with the next over and started looking dangerous. It was the first ball of the third over. Tapped on good length and took the shape of off-stump and moved forward. Rahul bent down and closed the mouth of the bat and tried to play with the angle. The ball missed from Rahul and entered the stumps from the thigh. Rahul scored just 3 runs in 8 balls.
India’s hope, Pakistan’s fear
Obviously, after losing both the openers, the concern of the Indian camp increased. The dream of defeating India for the first time in the World Cup started taking shape in Pakistan’s mind. However, there is a figure that can increase the panic of Pakistani players and fans.
