Colombo: Sep 30, 2012

 

India face Pakistan in a must-win tie of the Super Eights clash of the World T20 at Colombo on Sunday.

 

India brought back opener Virender Sehwag and Laxmipathy Balaji in place of Harbhajan Singh and Piyush Chawla.

 

Humiliated by Australia in their opening Super Eights match, a jittery India will have to pick up the pieces from their all-round failure and come up with an inspired performance.

 

The Indian team looked completely out of sorts against Australia and they now have to quickly address their woes in all departments of the game when they take on an upbeat Pakistan, who had beaten South Africa in a thriller, if they want to remain afloat in the tournament.

 

India’s five bowler strategy was a big hit against England in the group match but in conducive conditions against Australia, Mahendra Singh Dhoni‘s frontline spinners were hammered by Shane Watson-David Warner duo in last night’s match.

 

Pakistan are far superior players of spin bowling and consistency has never been Chawla’s forte as he is primarily a rhythm bowler. On their day, the likes of Imran Nazir, Nasir Jamshed and Mohammad Hafeez can take Chawla to the cleaners — something Dhoni can’t afford at this juncture of the tournament.

 

The Indian team also has their share of batting worries and it will be interesting to know whether Dhoni will persist with Irfan Pathan as the makeshift opener and keep Virender Sehwag out of the equation, says a Press Trust of India report.

 

The Indian batsmen in the three matches so far in the tournament have been able hit only seven sixes (four vs Afghans, one vs England and two vs Australia) while Watson alone has hit seven sixes against India on Friday.

 

Teams

 

India: Gautam Gambhir, Virender Sehwag, Virat Kohli, Yuvraj Singh, Rohit Sharma, Suresh Raina, MS Dhoni (c & wk), Irfan Pathan, Laxmipathy Balaji, Ravichandran Ashwin, Zaheer Khan.

 

Pakistan:  Mohammad Hafeez(c), Imran Nazir, Nasir Jamshed, Kamran Akmal (wk), Umar Akmal, Shoaib Malik, Shahid Afridi, Yasir Arafat, Umar Gul, Saeed Ajmal, Raza Hasan.
