T20 World Cup 2021: In the T20 World Cup 2021, where matches are being played against the Qualifier Stage on one side. On the other hand, eight teams who have qualified for Super 12 are doing the final preparations for the tournament by playing warm up matches. The main event of the T20 World Cup is to be played between India and Pakistan on 24 October. Before this, both these teams also played their own warm-up matches yesterday. If we look at the history of the matches between India and Pakistan, then in these matches all eyes remain on the bowlers. Both the teams have always been full of world class bowlers. Javagal Srinath, Venkatesh Prasad, Anil Kumble and Harbhajan Singh are some of the names against whom Pakistan’s batsmen have struggled in history. On the other hand, bowlers like Wasim Akram, Imran Khan, Waqar Younis and Saqlain Mushtaq have been dominated by Pakistan.
Talking about the present time, the attack of Team India looks much better than that of Pakistan. The warm-up matches played yesterday are being seen as a big test for the bowlers of both these teams. While Pakistan tried 6 bowlers in the match against West Indies, Team India captain Kohli bowled 5 bowlers against England. In the match to be held on October 24, both the teams can enter the match with more or less the same bowling attack. Let’s take a look at the report cards of the bowlers of both the teams in the match.
Brilliant performance by Ashwin and Bumrah
In the match against England, Jasprit Bumrah among India’s fast bowlers and R Ashwin among spin bowlers impressed a lot. Bumrah took one wicket for 26 runs in his four overs. On the other hand, Ashwin conceded just 23 runs in his four overs.. For Team India, fast bowler Mohammed Shami took 3 wickets for 40 runs in 4 overs, which can be considered a good performance in favorable conditions for the batsmen. However, the bowling of Rahul Chahar and Bhuvneshwar Kumar still remains a problem for the team. Both proved to be very expensive against England yesterday.
Pakistan bowlers impressed
In the warm-up match against West Indies yesterday, the conditions looked conducive to bowling. Pakistan’s bowlers also took advantage of this and kept the West Indies’ army of explosive batsmen under constant pressure with accurate line length. Imad Wasim and Shadab Khan were the most economical bowlers for Pakistan. Imad took 1 wicket for just 6 runs in his 3 overs. On the other hand, Shadab Khan gave 7 runs in 2 overs at an economy of 3.50. However, he failed to take wickets. Among the fast bowlers, Shaheen Shah Afridi took 2 wickets for 41 runs in 4 overs. On the other hand, Hasan Ali took 2 wickets for 21 runs in 4 overs. Apart from this, Harris Rauf also took 2 wickets for 32 runs in 4 overs.
