The world’s most awaited moment is going to begin today at Shere Bangla National Stadium, Mirpur in Bangladesh which is very huge t20 cricket match of India and Pakistan from Asia Cup 2016. 27 February is a day of the great game battle of two big countries Pakistan and of course, India and today what will happen it will be remembered till next t20 cricket match of these two teams and it will be the day of Saturday 19th March 2016 from T20 ICC World Cup 2016 19th match.
So now in Bangladesh today three t20 matches are already had been played on the same pitch, in the third/last match pitch was not giving so much bounce as the first match and also the turn. Today will be a very huge test for extreme Pakistani bowlers with their world’s most effective bowling attack and also for India’s unforgettable ever batting strength. For the fans of both countries, it will be the final of Asia Cup 2016 because of the craziness of cricket from both sides. A series between Pakistan and India had been canceled because of political issues from both countries but now finally is happening.
MS Dhoni and Ashish Nehra were given time off from training in Fatullah on Friday. It seems the back spasms that troubled the captain haven’t completely died down. Dhoni had said it had been “difficult” convincing the team management to let him play the Asia Cup opener. Perhaps the weight of an India-Pakistan game might just persuade him to stand his ground again. Pakistan is rife with fast bowlers.
Mohammad Sami is back again, Mohammad Amir looks like he’s back for good, Mohammad Irfan doesn’t spare his own batsmen of the discomfort a seven-foot quick can cause, Wahab Riaz loves a fight and Anwar Ali can be excellent with the new ball. All of them trained under Waqar Younis and Azhar Mahmood’s watchful eyes. Even the captain Shahid Afridi agreed the game would be a contest between his bowlers and India’s batsmen.
Pitch and weather report
The pitches for the Fatullah qualifiers were brilliant for batting. The ball came on nicely and the bounce was true. Mirpur has also been similar, except for the fact that early on it has also provided sideways movement. Light showers are forecast for the morning, but they shouldn’t impact the match.
