Dubai | A storm erupted in the deserts of UAE when Sachin Tendulkar’s bat fired fireworks against Australia in Sharjah. The thing is from 1998. Now after 23 years, due to the sound of the storm, once again strong tornadoes have started rising in the desert.
This sound is from the biggest match in the world of cricket.
This storm is of Annul-e-Jung of India and Pakistan and this test is of crores of fans apart from 22 fans of both the teams. This clash of India and Pakistan will start on October 24 at 7.30 pm in the Dubai ground. If there is this collision then there will be questions and the answer will also be given whether Virat Kohli’s bat will speak in this superhit match or will Babar Azam be heavy? The question will also be on Hardik Pandya’s bowling and then on the picture of Team India’s playing XI.
The answer to all these questions will confirm whether Team India’s winning streak, which has been going on for 29 years and 12 matches in the Cricket World Cup, will continue or whether Pakistan’s team will be able to create a new history.
One thing is often heard in the match between India and Pakistan. That is, this match is like normal matches. Virat Kohli also reiterated this in his press conference, but Virat himself must have known that this match is not an ordinary match. Of course, Team India has a hundred percent record of winning against Pakistan in the ICC World Cup, but when you land on the ground of reality, then the sky figures do not exist. This is the reason why no matter how much Virat Kohli says, but when the eyes of the whole world are fixed on one match, people should decide their day’s work according to the time of the match, there is talk of a match on the street, nooks and squares, Then it was no ordinary match.
If we weigh the teams of India and Pakistan on two pans, then surely the thorn will lean towards Team India. But T20 is the format where Raja becomes Ghulam and Karinde does not take long to become King. It is only a matter of 40 overs, if any team can dominate, then the results can be surprising. Especially in the pressure match between India and Pakistan, nothing can be said. We have also seen Team India, adorned with legends, disintegrate under pressure in the 2017 Champions Trophy.
We have also seen Scotland win over Bangladesh in the qualifying matches of the current World Cup. In such a situation, this match will be between India’s batting and Pakistan’s bowling, as has always been the case. This time there are arrows like KL Rahul, Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli, Rishabh Pant and Hardik Pandya in Team India’s quiver, while Pakistan has attackers like Imad Wasim, Shaheen Shah Afridi, Haris Rauf, Shadab Khan and Hasan Ali. India has stars like Jasprit Bumrah, Mohammed Shami, Varun Chakraborty and Ravindra Jadeja while Pakistan has stars like Babar Azam, Mohammad Rizwan, Fakhar Zaman, Shoaib Malik and Mohammad Hafeez. Now the thing to be seen will be whether the victory will be in the name of the greats of India or the might of Pakistan will be seen.
