defeated India in the last world cup
Team India’s performance in T20 World Cup 2021 was not special. Virat’s captaincy team was eliminated from the group stage itself. In such a situation, this time Rohit Sharma’s eyes will be on performing some better. Last year also India played its first match against Pakistan. In this match, India had to face defeat by 10 wickets. Pakistan captain Babar Azam and opener Mohammad Rizwan shared a 152-run partnership for the first wicket. Before the match at Melbourne Ground in the World Cup, Pakistan’s fast bowler Haris Rauf has warned Team India. He revealed that he will make a special plan for the Indian team at his ‘home ground’.
Indo-Pak match high pressure game
After winning the 5th T20 match against England, Haris said, “A match between India and Pakistan is always a high pressure game. Whatever the opponent, it is always a high pressure game. Last year in the World Cup I felt a lot of pressure. But in the last two games in the Asia Cup, I didn’t feel it much because I knew I had to give my best.
Melbourne is my home ground
He said, “If I give my best, they will not be able to play me easily. I am very happy for the T20 World Cup match, because it is at the Melbourne Cricket Ground. This is my home ground, because I am for the Melbourne Stars. I play and I have an idea of what the conditions are like there. I have already started planning how I will bowl against India.”
Great performance against England
Harris has been consistently performing well for Pakistan in the ongoing seven-match T20I series against England. Haris is the highest wicket-taker (8 wickets in five matches) in the series since the fifth T20I on Wednesday. The England team is on a tour of Pakistan these days. Here a series of 7 T20 matches is being played between the two teams. So far 5 matches have been played in the series. Of these, Pakistan has won 3 while England has won 2. England won the first match of the series by 6 wickets and the third by 63 runs. At the same time, Pakistan has won the second T20 by 10 wickets, the fourth by 3 runs and the fifth by 6 runs.
