Indian cricketer S Sreesanth had picked his playing XI for the all-important clash against Pakistan and he has made some interesting choices at the top of the order. India and Pakistan will be playing against each other for the sixth time in a T20 Worldcup game and so far it has been towards the favour of India in the previous five times.
Pakistan does have a strong squad as well with a lot of experience in their squad and their variety in the bowling attack makes them one of the favorites to win the title. The game will take place today evening at the Dubai International Stadium and the experts have already started making their predictions for the game.
S Sreesanth Names His Indian Openers For The Pakistan game
S Sreesanth was part of the T20 World Cup title-winning campaign in 2007 and he played a pivotal role in winning the tournament as well. Sreesanth made an interesting choice as he wanted the Indian skipper Virat Kohli to open with Rohit Sharma and has pushed the in-form batter, KL Rahul, to number three.
Virat Kohli hasn’t been in the best of forms off late and he was one of the few players who did not have much impact in the warm-up fixtures. Despite all that said, Kohli remains the greatest match-winner for India and his form will be crucial for India’s success. He will certainly be up for the challenge against Pakistan in the first game for India in the T20 World Cup 2021.
