In addition, the former Pakistan quic has also raised questions regarding the Babar Azam-led Pakistan team as pace sensation Naseem Shah has been ruled out of the crucial tournament.
The new ball is always crucial for us not only in this World Cup but in general, if you look at the matches, it has always been a very important factor for us over the years and in past World Cups too. When we were able to make shots and take wickets with the new ball, we got some momentum to stay in the best position in the game. So the absence of Nasim Shah is a very big loss for Pakistan. Though Hasan Ali, who has a lot of experience and has performed brilliantly in the past as his replacement, has been announced, but I feel that to suddenly come and perform on such a big stage will be a challenge for him, Waqar said.
About the India-Pakistan league match to be played on October 14 at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmadabade, W.According to Akar, the fact that the Blues start the match as favorites against their arch-rivals does not take away from the special meaning of the encounter.
This is going to be the biggest game, the mother of all games. So when you play in Ahmedabad, which has one of the biggest and best stadiums in the world, you will have to control your nerves and not only Pakistan will be under pressure as they are the weaker team compared to India, but India will also be under pressure as the crowd in the stadium will put pressure on both the teams and this will balance the pressure in the game. However, if judged purely on the team’s performance, India will definitely be the better team, the 51-year-old said.
