In the T20 World Cup 2022, the Indian team has to play its first match against Pakistan. Former batsman Suresh Raina has described this match as the biggest challenge for the team. Raina has said that if India beat Pakistan in their first match, then they will also win the T20 World Cup.
The match between India and Pakistan in the T20 World Cup will be played on 23 October. Last time Pakistan had defeated the Indian team badly by 10 wickets in the T20 World Cup. This is the reason why the Pakistani team will expect the same kind of victory this time as well. Shaheen Shah Afridi is back fit and due to this the Pakistan team has become even stronger.
On the other hand, if we talk about the Indian team, then the bowling remains a matter of constant concern for the team. Harshal Patel also gave a lot of runs in the warm-up match against Australia. However, the way Shami bowled, the team must have got relief.
