T20 World Cup: Team India’s campaign will start with a match against Pakistan in the T20 World Cup to be held in Australia next month. Before this match to be held on 23 October, Pakistan’s fast bowler Haris Rauf, who is in excellent form, has challenged Team India. Rauf hopes that on the basis of his experience of playing the Big Bash League, he will be able to achieve success in the match against India.
India and Pakistan do not play bilateral series due to mutual political tensions. This match to be held at MCG will be his fourth match in a year. Rauf said, “If I can give my best, then it will not be easy for them to play me. I am very happy that this is happening at the Melbourne Cricket Ground.
Rauf plays for Melbourne Stars in BBL. He said, “It is my home ground because I play for Melbourne Stars. I know how to play there. I have also started strategizing how to bowl against India.
Rauf is in excellent form
Pakistan had last defeated India by ten wickets in the T20 World Cup in UAE, which was their first win over India in the World Cup. India defeated it by four wickets in the group stage of the Asia Cup but lost in the Super Four stage. Rauf said, “There is a lot of pressure in India and Pakistan matches. I felt that pressure in the World Cup. But in the last two matches in the Asia Cup, I didn’t feel that pressure because I knew I had to do my best.
Let us tell you that Rauf is currently running in excellent form. In the series of 7 T20 matches being played against England, Rauf has led the Pakistan team to victory in two matches on his own.
