There are serious worries throughout the middle overs as Pakistan has been losing the plot, even if the pacers have shared the burden in terms of wickets even though they are not economical.
Pakistan’s World Cup campaign is in ruins after three straight defeats, and if it hopes to advance, it cannot afford to make any mistakes in the remaining matches.
The team, which has a reputation for having a devastating bowling attack, struggled to defend a goal of 283 runs against Afghanistan and lost by eight wickets.
Hardik Pandya is probably going to be out for Team India against England, and Harbhajan has an odd idea for the team’s management.
After winning each of their first five games in the 2023 World Cup, Team India is currently undefeated. Virat Kohli once again showed off his skills with a good 95 as India trounced New Zealand on Sunday of last week in Dharamsala, against stiff opposition. India suffered an injury blow before the match when Hardik Pandya was forced to withdraw due to an ankle problem. Suryakumar Yadav, who was brought on as a replacement, was unfortunate to be dismissed at the run of play. Mohammed Shami, who was the second player to be added to the starting XI in place of Shardul, had an incredible start to his campaign, taking five wickets.
India is now leading the tournament and appears to have an easier path to the semi-finals. against Sunday, the team will take against the reigning champions, England, who have had a difficult start to the season. England, who have only won once in their last four games, will be looking to rally against Sri Lanka on Thursday before facing the hosts in Lucknow. However, former India spinner Harbhajan Singh has already provided Rohit Sharma and the team management with some very important advice on his official YouTube channel ahead of the big game.
Because of England’s difficulty with spin, Harbhajan has recommended that the Indian squad use three spinners in the starting XI.
“I’m curious if we’ll see Kuldeep Yadav, [Ravindra] Jadeja, and Ashwin play as three spinners in the upcoming game, as his form has been excellent. Given that England struggles with spin, it might be possible. In the current World Cup, England is not performing well, and I don’t think they will be able to improve much if the ball starts to spin. Harbhajan expressed his opinion on his official YouTube channel, saying that playing three spinners could not be a terrible idea.
Mohammed Siraj could be rested for the match against England, according to the Indian World Cup winner, as he has played in all five games.
Siraj is ready for a nap. He has engaged in consecutive games. Shami, who just entered the game, has already scored five runs.
“I don’t see too many changes in the team if a pitch is typical and isn’t likely to produce a lot of turn. It’s possible that the squad that faced New Zealand will stay together. He went on, “But since India is playing England, they could prefer a slow field.
Star all-rounder Hardik Pandya is expected to miss India’s next two World Cup matches because he hasn’t fully recovered from his ankle injury, according to reports that surfaced earlier on Wednesday. Although the nature of the damage is unknown, it is thought to be either a ligament injury or an ankle sprain.
