We got 152 not 172, we couldn't once get away or dominated a passage of play, just when pant looked good shadab got him, same with Surya getting out to Hassan, so again they all chipped in when it mattered, it's not as if the rest of the bowlers went at 10 rpo

152 was made to look like 52.Chased with no wickets down.. It was a piss poor bowlig effort.

Chakravarthy got the blame but shami and bumrah were pathetic, after 8 overs Pakistan were around 52-53 I think, both Varun and jaddu kept some pressure on them and slowed down the scoring just that the seamers were useless and created zero pressure.

Okayish team. People are really going overboard with their hype here. 

 

Barring the new ball spell from Afridi, there's nothing much in that unit to really give a challenge that the Indian players will worry about. Especially that bowling attack. Rauf, Shadab, Naseem are all halwa bowlers if attacked. 

So the question is - how to play Afridi this time? Bcoz very sure he will pitch it up and target the pads of Rohit Sharma again.

 

How to survive his 1st spell? 

 

Few things they can do:

1. Stand 2 meter outside the crease to negate the in dipper

2. Look to defend his spell and play him out (approach we took against Amir in 2019 WC). I know its T20 and 2 over matters a lot but it is better than being 6/2.

3. Start the innings with a left handed batsman

Agree, batting is very average .

depends on the total u give them .

180+ they are already in pressure , keep it tight which isnt tough with babar-rizwan 

 

Keep them behind RR till last 5 overs and then against likes of bhuvi-bumrah-arsh/harshal it wont be easy in death

Guys like Khushdil will have problem against hardik short stuff in middle order 

 

140+ its their game to loose

We are talking about how we have to face shaheen but even babar- rizwan will have to face this swing, aur ye to butler tha jo t20 men babr-rizwan ka baap hai 

 

Under lights new kookaburra ball always swings 

 

In dew ghanta swing milegi...  Bhuvi will be better than his last WT20 spell but expecting magic deliveries from him in UAE is bit too much.  UAE in fact completely nullifies his skill set.

wo dew to shaheen ke liye bi hoga aur dew purani baal pe asar karta hai naya fir bhi swing hota hai 

UAE nullifies chahar skill set coz he can only swing, bhuvi can seam the ball too. Conditions can be watever new kookabura always will swing under lights it just differentiate in terms of how long will it in different conditions. Swing or turns mostly gets nullified on pitches like Sydney where ball from pitch comes so easy that batsman get enough time

Very strong squad indeed. With Babar Azam, they also have a calm and composed leader and not obnoxious ones of the past like Afridi, Sarfraz etc.

 

India should play this line up against them (subject to fitness):

 

Rohit

SKY

Kohli

KL

Pant

Pandya

Bhuvi

Bishnoi/Chahar

Chahal

Bumrah

Harshal/Arshdeep

But you see..Bhuvi at 7 is very long tail..if we have 5 devastatating bowlers..its easy to just pick batting till 6..D Chahar is better at 7 if he plays..

thats the issue we have..in bolwing Pandya is a good 6th bowling option in current form..but we dont. have any bowler who can bat well..may be DC only

Pdosi may have  shadab at 7,nawaz at 8--very capable with bat..

Also this is a myth that his skill set needs conditions in t20- he is an all condition all phase bowler 

In ODI he is just defensive

In test he needs condition but that to post 2015 had more condition in his wings as his pace picked up and he started getting wkts with seam and not just swing
