24th October 2021 it’s a date that every subcontinent cricket fan will be waiting for especially from the people who follow cricket ardently as arch-rivals India and Pakistan will compete against each other in Dubai on the same day in the upcoming T20 World Cup.
The match is followed vividly all over the world by cricket fans as both teams don’t want to lose against each other and so far India’s record against in ICC tournaments have been impressive and it will interesting to see that whether Pakistan can turn around this year or will India replicate the same performance of their dominance.
Pakistan speedster Hasan Ali who is an important member of Men in Green said that we are not thinking about the contest against India as it is a far fetch thing and we have to play so many series ahead of playing T2O World Cup.
“We’re not looking forward to the India match right now at all, to be honest with you. That’s still very far away. My focus is just on these two Tests right now. Winning away to a side with such firepower that they can hurt you anytime is great. A win is a win and we’re very happy with the series victory in the West Indies.
We’re all disappointed because we wanted to play. Even when it was raining we were all raring to go. But the weather is not in our control. Of course, the disappointment is we couldn’t prepare properly away to a champion side,” said Hasan Ali as quoted by Cricinfo.
He also concluded by stating that the current Pakistan side has a number of pace options including the likes of Shaheen Afridi, Naseem Shah, Mohammad Abbas, and will look to post a victory over the West Indies side who are a strong side in their backyard.
“We’re looking forward to the Tests; we have a few days to get used to the red ball. I’ll try to capitalize on my form and the rhythm I’ve got going for now. Our team is very balanced. We have plenty of spinners with Yasir [Shah] coming back, and in dry conditions like these that’s very useful.
“Then we also have [pace options in] Shaheen [Afridi], Naseem [Shah], [Mohammad] Abbas, and myself. We’ve won the last two Test series [against West Indies] and we’re looking to continue that and get the WTC off in victorious fashion,” concluded Hasan Ali.
