India vs. Pakistan World Cup 2023 Live Score: The most anticipated match of the 2023 Cricket World Cup is finally here as Rohit Sharma’s India take on Babar Azam’s Pakistan in a rematch of their legendary rivalry on the biggest of stages.
Even if Pakistan’s pace battery has so far failed to deliver the overwhelming performances of years past in this World Cup, the struggle will primarily be between India’s hitters and them. Shaheen Shah Afridi, Haris Rauf, and spinner Shadab Khan have all struggled against the Netherlands and Sri Lanka. Mohammad Rizwan’s valiant effort against the Lankans saved the Men in Green.
India, meanwhile, has had a wonderful tournament debut, with players like skipper Rohit, Virat Kohli, and KL Rahul all looking sharp. The bowling unit is also nothing to sneeze at with to the hot-handed veteran Kuldeep Yadav and the bouncy Jasprit Bumrah. Shubman Gill, whose participation in this match had been questioned owing to dengue, is 99% certain to make the playing XI, as Rohit stated in the pre-match press conference, which will strengthen the team.
Before their match against India, Pakistan’s top bowlers, Shaheen Shah Afridi, Haris Rauf, and Shadab Khan, are trying to get back into form.
Former Pakistani captain Shahid Afridi contacted his son-in-law Shaheen Shah Afridi a few days ago. Shaheen has lost runs in his last two games and has appeared out of sync, off-pace, and out of place. Pakistan is concerned. The rest of the cricket community is perplexed. What has happened to the player who eliminates opponents in the first round if Shubman Gill in the Asia Cup and Kusal Mendis in this World Cup are dragging him around?
According to Afridi, Shaheen should have asked the performance analyst for his bowling films. that the lines and lengths are incorrect, having “too much room” and “not hit hard lengths” respectively. Shaheen concurred with the assessment, according to Afridi, and he pledged to make amends in the days before the India game in Ahmedabad. Mohammad Yousuf and Mushtaq Ahmed in the studio nodded wisely. Babar Azam, the team’s captain, would cite Shaheen as a “champion and a big-match player” to a questioner in Ahmedabad the day before the game.
All of that is true, of course, and it would be foolish for anybody to dismiss Shaheen; all it takes are a few balls traveling at speeds of close to 140 kph in the first over that almost tilt back into the right-handers, and everything may change.
