2nd innings average score: 148

Type: Good batting wicket. Bigger boundaries.

Probable Playing XI for India & Pakistan

Probable XI for India: KL Rahul, Rohit Sharma (c), Virat Kohli, Suryakumar Yadav, Hardik Pandya, Dinesh Karthik (wk), Axar Patel, Mohammed Shami, Arshdeep Singh/Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Harshal Patel, Yuzvendra Chahal/Ravichandran Ashwin

Probable XI for Pakistan: Mohammad Rizwan (wk), Babar Azam (c), Shan Masood, Haider Ali, Iftikhar Ahmed, Asif Ali, Shadab Khan, Mohammad Nawaz, Shaheen Afridi, Naseem Shah, Haris Rauf

Form Concerns

Haider Ali has managed only 52 runs, including three-single digit scores in his last 5 T20Is.

Asif Ali’s extended rough patch will also bother Pakistan. 68 runs in his last 10 T20Is is a testimony to his recent struggles.

Game Changers

When these two teams met in the T20 World Cup in 2021, Shaheen Afridi ripped through the Indian openers. He finished with figures of 4-0-31-3. He has the ability to change the complexion of the game in the first few overs.

Besides collecting 117 runs with the bat, Mohammad Nawaz picked 7 wickets in the recently concluded tri-series in New Zealand.

Smart Fantasy Picks

Since the Asia Cup, Haris Rauf has been Pakistan’s No.1 strike bowler. He has taken 22 wickets in this period, including the best figures of 3 for 28.

Rohit Sharma has added only 50 runs in his last 5 T20Is against Pakistan. However, his aggressive approach at the top helps generate crucial bonus points.

Mohammad Shami is back. He made an immediate impact in the warm-up match against Australia by bagging a three-for. He remains India’s best strike bowler, especially given the conditions in Australia.

Power Players

Virat Kohli’s last 5 T20Is scores against Pakistan read 60, 35, 57, 55*, and 49 in his last 5 T20Is. When he last batted in the format at the MCG, he slammed 59 off 33 balls.

Suryakumar Yadav’s purple patch will encourage fantasy players. He has hammered three fifties in his last 4 T20Is.

Mohammad Rizwan and Babar Azam collectively added 399 runs, including 4 half-centuries in the recently concluded tri-series in New Zealand. When they batted against India in the previous T20 World Cup, they stitched an opening partnership of 152.
