The value of the India vs. Pakistan Match is very different from other matches. India’s first match in the Asia Cup 2023 was washed away due to rain, but these two arch-rivals met again today in the Super 4. Pakistan won the toss and decided to bowl first, Rohit Sharma set a new record by opening the innings for India.
Rohit Sharma is the biggest name in India and world ODI cricket at the moment. However, in the first match of the Asia Cup, Pakistan pacer Shaheen Afridi started devastating bowling from the beginning. As a result, Rohit got out for just 11 runs. Even one of India’s star batsman Virat Kohli was sent out of the field for just 4 runs by Shaheen Afridi.
Rohit Sharma came to open for India today and set a new record against this Pakistan pacer. Indian captain hit a massive six against Shaheen Afridi in the first over of today’s match against Pakistan. Before this, no batsman could hit a six in the first over with his ball. Shaheen is currently the number 5 bowler in ODI cricket in the world. He is at the top of the list of highest wicket-takers in the Asia Cup as well.
On the other hand, fans are excited to see Rohit Sharma back to his old form today. This match against Pakistan is very important for the Indian team before the World Cup. Today, KL Rahul is back in the Indian XI instead of Shreyas Iyer. Mohammed Shami has also been replaced by Jasprit Bumrah.
