We are edging towards the end of India vs Pakistan T20 series as we are already about to witness another cliff hanger which also is the last t20 in this series. Pakistan leads the two T20 series by 1-0 and India would try its best to avoid another nightmare series loss at home.
All India would cherish is the debut of Bhuvaneshwar Kumar who was superb with his line and length and troubled Pakistani batsmen to the extreme. Chasing a small total of 133, Pakistani batsmen looked completely uncomfortable against Kumar. He took 3 wickets in 4 overs and was too economical to give away just 9 runs. If Dinda would have given him equally matching support, India could have won the first match.
If India has to win the second t20 they have to hunt in a group rather than individuals. A good start from the openers followed by capitalisation of the start is necessary. India is full of good batsmen right from Gambhir, Rahane, Yuvraj, Kohli to Raina and Dhoni. Even someone like Jadeja comes in handy at crucial times.
Considering the nature of Ahmedabad pitch, captains may think of including an extra spinner. So we may see Ashwin coming in after a seamer makes way for him. Part timers who didn’t work well in Bangalore are expected to do well here in Ahmedabad. So we may see a Jadeja or a Yuvraj Singh providing some crucial breakthroughs.
Pakistan on the other hand would be confident after a win in first match. They would just like to continue the winning momentum and beat India 2-0 in the t20 series in India.
