The most epic rivalry in world cricket is set to take place in Manchester between India and Pakistan. Despite the threat of rain looming over the match, the tie promises to be a marquee clash in England.
Here are some of the important players to be watched out from this ultimate game.
The ‘Hitman’ Rohit Sharma will be the important man to watch out for in this match. He has only scored one century against Pakistan in Asia Cup held at UAE. Still, he is the most consistent player to watch out because of his capability of playing long innings. If he keeps on going, a huge total is expected.
Experienced batsmen Mohammad Hafeez is looking in great touch in this year’s world cup. He has been a very good player in major events for Pakistan with the bat as well as the ball thereby showing an all-around effort.
Hardik Pandya’s knock of 76 against Pakistan in the champions trophy 2017 Final is still remembered well. This time he would like to hit those runs in the form of a winning knock. He is looking in a great touch ahead of the World Cup and will look to deliver a better performance.
Mohammad Amir has picked 10 wickets in the World cup so far. His bowling performance of 5-30 against Australia in the last match was very good. He is a good swing bowler in the side and getting the suitable conditions to bowl could bring his best out.
When it comes to these big matches the one man we cannot forget is Jasprit Bumrah. The World No. 1 bowler will certainly look to deliver the best performance against Pakistan. He has been quite impressive in the world cup picking in 5 wickets in just the two matches he has played.
