Shubman Gill is practicing on the net after recovering from dengue fever.
Time: The match will be played from 2 pm onwards.
Ahmedabad (EMS). A day before Saturday’s high voltage India-Pakistan match, good news has emerged for the Indian cricket team. Opener Shubman Gill is practicing in the nets after recovering from dengue fever. Due to which his chances of playing in the World Cup match against Pakistan have increased. The 22-year-old player could not play the first two matches against Australia and Afghanistan due to illness, but he may get a place in the playing eleven in the important match against Pakistan.
In fact, the team management organized a special practice session for Gill before the team reached Ahmedabad. For this reason he had asked left-handed throwdown specialist Nuwan Seneviratne to go to Ahmedabad. Gill reached Narendra Modi Stadium at 11 am and after doing some exercises under the supervision of team doctor Rizwan, he practiced at the nets. Keeping Pakistan’s left-arm fast bowler Shaheen Shah Afridi’s ‘indipper’ in mind, he practiced on Sri Lankan specialist Seneviratne’s 150 kmph throwdown. He also faced some net bowlers. During this time he looked comfortable. Head coach Rahul Dravid and the medical team are going to take note of Gill’s progress in the practice session on Friday before deciding on his inclusion in the team.
On the other hand, Rohit Sharma’s balance, Virat Kohli’s passion and Jasprit Bumrah’s artistry make India a strong contender for victory against arch-rival Pakistan in the World Cup match today. However, this match also has a socio-political context and its impact will extend beyond the 22-yard pitch. On paper, India is a much better team and has many stars in the batting order. From Pakistan’s point of view, the first spell of left arm fast bowler Shaheen Shah Afridi will be very important. This is a match where emotional aspects also play a role and it has produced heroes and villains in equal numbers over the years.
Ask Javed Miandad and Chetan Sharma, Salim Malik and Maninder Singh, Ajay Jadeja and Waqar Younis, Hrishikesh Kanitkar and Saqlain Mushtaq, Sachin Tendulkar and Shoaib Akhtar, Virat Kohli and Wahab Riaz, Joginder Sharma and Misbah Ul Haq (in the T20 World Cup). . The competition is filled with examples of pain and ecstasy, joy and heartbreak, which never end. Gill is recovering well after dengue and if he is ready to do to Shaheen what he did in the Asia Cup in Colombo with half a dozen fours in the powerplay, then the task of demoralizing the Pakistani team will be half done. Will go.
Bad weather is forecast but no one wants the cricket match to be disrupted. Mohammad Rizwan performed brilliantly against Sri Lanka and Abdullah Shafiq showed his level. Saud Shakeel can change the course of the match any day but Pakistan’s batting depends on its captain Babar Azam. Babar’s clash with Kuldeep Yadav will be exciting. There are still a large number of such people who think ‘Whether we win the World Cup or not, just defeat Pakistan.
The teams are as follows:
India: Rohit Sharma (captain), Hardik Pandya, Shubman Gill, Virat Kohli, Shreyas Iyer, Lokesh Rahul, Ravindra Jadeja, Shardul Thakur, Jasprit Bumrah, Mohammed Siraj, Kuldeep Yadav, Mohammed Shami, Ravichandran Ashwin, Ishan Kishan, Suryakumar Yadav.
Pakistan: Babar Azam (captain), Shadab Khan, Fakhar Zaman, Imam-ul-Haq, Abdullah Shafiq, Mohammad Rizwan, Saud Shakeel, Iftikhar Ahmed, Salman Ali Aga, Mohammad Nawaz, Usama Mir, Haris Rauf, Hasan Ali, Shaheen Afridi. And Mohammad Wasim.
