New Delhi: Team India is going through many setbacks one after other. Entering into T20 World Cup, Rohit Sharma’s team has lost three of their star players including Ravindra Jadeja, Jasprit Bumrah and Deepak Chahar.
When India has to somehow manage the crisis of players situation, Pakistan, on other hand is preparing with the best of their players. Attacking pacer Shaheen Shah Afridi is back in the team and they will be playing with star batter Mohammad Rizwan.
Azhar Mahmood says India is suffering big loss
Commenting on the contrasting situation, former Pakistan cricketer Azhar Mahmood has said that India is suffering big loss. “Whenever there is an India vs Pakistan game, it will be crucial. Pakistan’s bowling is strong but the batting needs to improve. India have suffered a big loss.”
“ They will be without Bumrah. That is a big loss. Agar Shaheen fit ho jate hai (if Shaheen Shah Afridi regains fitness and plays), our pace attack will bolster further. In Australia, the ball will come on to the bat better. It will be a good game, and given how mentally well Pakistan have been against India in recent games, their morale is high, so hopefully Pakistan will come out victorious again,” he added.
