Pakistan finally got satisfaction in terms of scoring and final victory against their Indian peers in Champions Trophy in June 2017. The rivalry of India and Pakistan is nothing new, and sub-plots are amazing as always. Two teams are all set to face off one another in the UAE, the venue where they faced off the most after a long wait of 12 years.
India had 6-4 ratio of win-loss against Pakistan in ODI format since the beginning of the decade. With 2012’s 3-match ODI series, both teams have just met at multi-team matches. Now the pressure has moved, scales have been done, and it further adds a great rivalry.
Time – September 19, 2018, 5:00 PM IST, 3:30 PM Local time
Venue – Dubai International Cricket Stadium
Position – It is a kind of match even scorching heat in Dubai won’t be able to stop. A packed house is all set to grace the stadium while braving the weather. All of the tournament pitches have been slow and this match will be no exception.
India – India had to make a big decision overnight. Jasprit Bumrah has been called up for Pakistan clash, but it would be unfair in case of Khaleel Ahmed, if it happens at his cost. Shardul Thakur should make way.
The top order has a big call. When KL Rahul and Hardik Pandya are waiting to get in, Kedar Jadhav and Ambati Rayudu have been doubling up as sixth option for bowling. Dinesh Karthik is the only player relegated to bench. The arrival of KL Rahul would mean he bats at 3 or takes 4th position and Rayudu goes a position down. If they cannot go without Pandya indeed, Khaleel would be taken.
Possible XI – Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan, Dinesh Karthik/KL Rahul, Ambati Rayudu, MS Dhoni, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Kedar Jadhav, Kuldeep Yadav, Yuzvendra Chahal, Jasprit Bumrah, Khaleel Ahmed/Hardik Pandya
Pakistan – In 8 ODIs, Mohammad Amir has 3 wickets in 2018 but it was Sarfraz Ahmed who came to the defence of his strike pacer giving example of Mohammed Shami in a press conference, who he thought bowled well in England Test matches but didn’t have a lot of wickets.
There’s logic to give a rest to left-handed as they have enough left-handed fast bowlers to trouble the batsmen in India and they have made it already to Super Four stage.
Possible XI – Imam Ul Haq, Fakhar Zaman, Shoaib Malik, Babar Azam, Sarfraz Ahmed, Shadab Khan, Asif Ali, Usman Khan, Faheem Ashraf, Junaid Khan/Mohammad Amir, Hasan Ali
India – Rohit Sharma (c), Ambati Rayudu, Shikhar Dhawan, MS Dhoni (w), Dinesh Karthik, Kedar Jadhav, Shardul Thakur, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, K Khaleel Ahmed, Kuldeep Yadav, Lokesh Rahul, Yuzvendra Chahal, Hardik Pandya, Manish Pandey, Jasprit Bumrah, Axar Patel
Pakistan – Sarfraz Ahmed (w/c), Imam-ul-Haq, Fakhar Zaman, Babar Azam, Asif Ali, Shoaib Malik, Faheem Ashraf, Shadab Khan, Mohammad Amir, Usman Khan, Hasan Ali, Shan Masood, Mohammad Nawaz, Haris Sohail, Shaheen Afridi, Junaid Khan.
