Don’t think India with World Cup, why is India’s upper hand in Asia Cup, know all the equations

New Delhi: The Asia Cup is starting from tomorrow i.e. 27th August. India-Pakistan clash is to be held on the second day of the tournament. India has many options and many big names in the middle order, which can also become a headache for them. On the other hand, former Pakistani cricketers like Wasim Akram and Danish Kaneria have also expressed concern about Pakistan’s low middle order experience. Looking at the experience and form, the Indian middle order seems to have the upper hand.

Indian batsmen changed approach

After the crushing defeat against Pakistan in the T20 World Cup in Dubai, the team changed its approach. In the last few months, Indian runbankures have been playing in a different style. Its effect is also visible. India’s scoring rate was very poor from January 2020 to 2021 World Cup. The scoring rate was 7.53 in powerplay, 7.21 in middle overs and 10.76 in slog overs, but after the World Cup it has become 8.95, 8.52 and 11.26 respectively.

Take a look at your middle order…

Virat Kohli: Virat, who has been battling form for a long time, will return to the field after the break and that too against his favorite team Pakistan. His batting average against Pakistan is 77.75. Virat understands the importance of this match against Pakistan very well. Here even a small flamboyant innings from his bat can bring back his lost confidence.

(Performance in T20Is in 2021-22: 14 matches, runs 380, average 47.50, strike rate 131.94)

Suryakumar Yadav: Surya has shown that you can take him down any order, he can score runs anywhere with his excellent shot selection. A dependable batsman who knows how to finish matches apart from staying at the crease and scoring runs at a fast strike rate. He is now being considered as the ‘Mr 360 Degree’ batter of India.

(Performance in T20Is in 2021-22: Total matches 23, runs 672, average 37.33, strike rate 175.45)

Dinesh Karthik: Dinesh Karthik’s presence with the bat on the field in the last three-four overs meant running at a strike rate of more than two hundred was considered certain. There is no one better than Karthik in world cricket at the moment in the art of finishing matches or finishing innings.

(Performance in T20Is in 2021-22: Total matches 15, 192, average 21.33, strike rate 133.33)
