He said: “They have a solid top three – Babar, Rizwan and Fakhar. Rizwan plays well, there is no doubt that. Fakhar Zaman is a gun player. Babar Azam is a gun player, there is no doubt about that as well. So this team’s top three are sorted. Last time we couldn’t even take one wicket of theirs, which is a sad reality, that might not be the case this time but the top three will once again be the backbone of this team.”
Asia Cup 2022: Pakistan are all set to take on India
However, Pakistan’s bowlers restricted India to 151/7 in their T20 World Cup 2021 clash in Dubai. Their openers, Azam and Rizwan, then chased down the total in less than 18 overs as well. Meanwhile, Chopra also added that Pakistan’s familiarity with the conditions in the UAE will give them a huge advantage also. Moreover, they have added a lot of all-rounders to the Pakistan squad which is also a positive for them.
“The special thing that makes them a threat and will always do is that this ground was their home for a very long time. They used to defeat all teams here. In fact, the match they lost against Australia, which was the semi-final of the T20 World Cup, they had lost a match in UAE after a long gap. They have plenty of all-rounders, which is a fantastic thing. Shadab Khan – he bowls and bats. After that, you will get Iftikhar Ahmed – he is a batting all-rounder and then Mohammad Nawaz and Mohammad Wasim, who are bowling all-rounders. Mohammad Rizwan is a keeper all-rounder,” he concluded.
However, vice-captain Shadab Khan is arguably one of the best all-rounders in the Pakistan squad. While his leg-spin is a threat, his batting has improved a lot and that can trouble the opponents as well.
