Two traditional enemies are now there to take on each other, but the one who would tackle the pressure, will win the match and all the cricket experts from both the concerns teams are agreed. Pakistan and India, both these sides are looking forward to this match, these two Asian sides are playing their opening game of champions trophy. Having said that, Pakistan have defeated India for two times in champions trophy, while India have not allowed the green shirts to win in World Cup so far and that’s why the confidence level of India is higher than India. On the counter side, India will go with experienced players, while Pakistan have youngsters who have not played much cricket yet.
This time, India is facing an issue that could destruct their confidence at the moment and that’s the controversy of dispute between Virat Kohli and Anil Kumble. Such time of disputes during the big game may give an edge to the opposition as weapon to blackmail them mentally. It might be a move from the Indian side to show that their opponent side is divided, but that’s not looked to be a reality in this case. Regarding the fight issue, the conversation between Pakistani coach Mickey Athur and captain Sarfraz Ahmed in domestic language consisting of agreement, both of them had not idea what they were talking about.
According to the most recent incidents from both sides, the signals show that India are divided and Pakistan are united currently, players in green shirts seem to be relaxed and quite confident. The statement of Sarfraz Ahmed during an interview before the warm up stage of Champions Trophy started, that we have nothing to lose as we are already at No. 8. So this sort of players unity, captain’ confidence and India’ fight between Virat and Kumble favors to Pakistan at the moment. Sarfraz also repeated again in conference held on 3rd June, 2017. He said that “We are not in pressure, in fact pressure is on India. Pakistan is placed at 8th slot in international ranking and we can’t fall even more”. So this statement just before the game is really a sign of positive and confidence that would have an affect on the entire Pakistani team.
Most important facts and elements were highlighted by legendary cricketers from both side during a TV show named “Pak Bharat Takra”. Wasim Akram, Shoaib Akhtar and Yusaf from Pakistani side highlighted some serious points of both sides and according to three of them, the pitch conditions are dangerous for both teams. Weather forecast would effect the play, pitch conditions are in favor of batsmen so far as each team is scoring above 300 yet. Pakistan has a young side, while India has an experienced set of players. India is number 1 batting lineup in the world. Indian bowlers have recently made their appearances in the IPL bowling 4 overs. On the other side, the Pakistani bowlers played a lengthy series against West Indies. Pakistani bowlers are in form and they can damage the opposition better than them.
First step that Pakistan has to take to progress well with their bat and ball to improve their international ranking. After India, Bangladesh and Afghanistan have denied, Pakistan are fully aware of their repute and status. Pakistan aware of the need to go for some sort of revolution in the ODI cricket like England have done in their recent two years making a big comeback slowly, but effectively. Pakistan need to make their fielding more resistive, ball more attacking and batting more aggressive.
In this very important and dangerous match, the Indian teams will have to use their pacers and fast bowlers among Shami, Umesh, Jasprit Bumrah and Bhuvneshwar Kumar on the behalf of pitch conditions and all these bowlers are eligible to play or their claim is so. India could include Hardik Pandya in the team as all rounder, Bumrah for the death overs, Bhuvneshwar Kumar on the behalf of his great tracking record against Pakistan. According to the weather conditions, Azhar Ali could go as opener in the team that is much needed, while Shadab Khan performance at Edgbaston on 4th June is still doubtful as Pakistan might add Faheem Ashraf to complete the batting lineup.
According to the pitch conditions, current status of both these teams’ players and experience with sort of level of confidence makes prediction of this match more complicated. Pakistan have the best bowling attack, but India is also with weapon with attacking blowers who are in form too especially against Pakistan according to the tracking record. India definitely have an edge of their experience batting lineup, so the votes go to India to for winning this match.
