3 reasons why Pakistan lost in T20 World Cup clash against India
Pakistan‘S World Cup 2022 T20 The campaign got off to a rough start as Team India put two points on the board with a thrilling win at the MCG on Sunday, October 23.
The throw was the first thing in India’s favor when they decided to give chase. Pakistan managed 159/8 of their 20 passes, with Iftikhar Ahmed and Shan Masood standing out in contrasting 50s. However, Virat Kohli’s stunning 82* took their place, as Men in Blue clinched a four-goal win on the final ball.
Here are 3 reasons why Pakistan lost in T20 World Cup clash to India.
#3 Pakistan’s shot selection in the middle round is questionable
Iftikhar and Masood teamed up 76 times for the third game, helping Pakistan to a respectable 91/2 after 12 passes. But after Mohammad Shami trapped the former with an invader, the Men in Green surrendered completely.
Shadab Khan, promoted to number 5, was the first to leave. He pushed Hardik Pandya to the side of his feet, just as long as Suryakumar Yadav clung to a steep person for long periods of time. Haider Ali stepped in and did exactly the same thing, finding SKY deep in the midst of a time when Pakistan desperately needed cooperation.
Mohammad Nawaz fell on Pandya afterwards, trying to slide sideways to lead to overtaking Dinesh Karthik. The most important thing happens when Arshdeep Singh defeats Asif Ali, with the hitter attempting a dodge action but failing miserably.
Some causes can be due to clever bowling, such as Iftikhar and Asif getting fired. However, the rest of the Pakistani average hitters need to be questioned for their lack of application.
#2 India fires Babar Azam and Mohammad Rizwan soon
There is no doubt that Babar Azam and Mohammad Rizwan are two of Pakistan’s most important smashers, even as their play puts pressure on the midfield. They put together a great partnership against the same opposition at the 2021 T20 World Cup, helping the Blue Team to score a huge 10 goals win.
But Azam and Rizwan have seen the opposite happen in Melbourne. The Pakistan captain was fired for kicking the first ball when a rower Arshdeep Singh trapped him in the front, quite similar to how Fazalhaq Farooqi stole his scalp in the Asian Cup. Rizwan, meanwhile, bounced one after that.
The key to Pakistan’s success in T20I cricket over the past two years has been the weight of runs from their opening match, which India has been sorely lacking. Men in Blue needs credit for planning and execution.
#1 Pakistan lost plot at the time of death
With 10 passes in the chase, the required running speed is 11.5. Even after Nawaz passed 20 times, India still needed 86 runs from the remaining 8 passes. At one point, they even asked for 28 out of 8 balls.
Pakistan has firmly grasped control of the contest at various points, but the plot has completely failed. Rauf was knocked down in two sixths compared to the penultimate man’s last two balls, and although both were truly spectacular hits from Kohli, his length and line could have been better. much.
In the final, Nawaz collapsed under the pump. When Pakistan adopted a unique tactic with Rizwan standing a few yards behind a tree, the left hand wheel delivered two wide balls and one not as high as the waist to give India a few free runs.
If Pakistan holds their nerve under pressure, they will not give in to India in such a fashion.
