Umar Gul advises Babars to beat India in World Cup

At the moment, Pakistan is just below India in the T20 format rankings. India with 28 points and Pakistan with 34 points.bc

However, Pakistan is ahead in the face-to-face battle. But India has exclusive dominance on the World Cup stage. Pakistan has never tasted victory against India in the T20 World Cup.
The two arch-rivals will meet in the upcoming T20 World Cup on October 24. So Pakistan's mission is to answer any questions.


Former Pakistan star Umar Gul has commented that this time it is an opportunity for Pakistan to get that taste.

The right-arm pacer has given some advice to Babar Azam to win against India.
He advised Babar Azam to stay away from social media before the India match.

In this context, Gul said, "India will be under extra pressure with the match. Because the whole country wants the Pakistan cricket team to lose them. My advice is: players should take control of their nerves and not break down under pressure. Because it is a high voltage match. I would also suggest that two or three days before, especially before the India match, the players should avoid social media and conventional media. '

Umar Gul thinks Pakistan bowlers need to play a bigger role to win against India.
Shaheen Afridi-Hasan Ali will have to send India's top-order batsmen back to the dressing room as soon as possible.

"India is a very strong team," he said. They find good players from IPL and add them to the team. They are doing a lot with this. Of course, Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli will play important roles in the Indian team. But if Pakistan can get their top-order batsmen out early in the power-play, then they can put pressure on their middle order. '

Gayle reached the milestone of 6,000 runs in 192 innings in the T20 edition. And Babar touched this milestone by playing 5 innings less than him.

Kolkata captain praised Shakib

After a long break, Shakib Al Hasan finally returned to the Kolkata Knight Riders XI. The Bangladesh all-rounder bowled brilliantly in the return match against Sunrisers Hyderabad in Dubai on Sunday. He took one wicket with only 20 runs in four overs.

Besides returning Abhishek Sharma, why did Shakib run out Williamson?


However, Eoin Morgan did not need to bat Shakib to win the match. Kolkata has brightened the chances of play-off by winning by six wickets. After tying Hyderabad for 115, Kolkata won with two balls to spare in the fifth over of Shubman Gill (56).

Kolkata captain Morgan praised Shakib for such a great victory.

Shakib's performance was praised by the Knight captain.

After the match, Morgan said, "Shakib has contributed a lot to our huge victory. Putting such an experienced international star like Shakib increases the depth and strength of the team. Being in his squad means great luxury. He has come and made a big impact in the match. He was great. '

Morgan's praise of Shakib raises the question - why was Shakib kept in the dugout for so long?

Why was Shakib neglected in the Emirates episode?

The Knight captain did not give any statement about this.

Shakib was left out after Caribbean all-rounder Andre Russell was ruled out of the XI due to injury two matches before Kolkata, and Kiwi pacer Tim Southee was picked. Ferguson was replaced in the next match by another Kiwi star, Tim Seifert.

Finally, Shakib proved his worth by returning to the XI against Sunrisers Hyderabad in Dubai on Sunday. He took 1 wicket with only 20 runs in 4 overs. Kane Williamson was run out in a direct throw in great fielding. Which plays a huge role in the team's victory. With 8 wickets in hand, Kolkata reached the target of 116 runs.
