Indian Team Preparing For Shaheen Shah’s Bowling
Dubai International Stadium… That evening of 24 October 2021 when Team India’s score was 6/2. This was the occasion of the first match of India-Pakistan in the last T20 World Cup. There, Pakistan’s fast bowler Shaheen Shah Afridi sent the Indian openers to the pavilion for just 6 runs. KL Rahul was out on 3 and Rohit Sharma on 0.
Team India’s think tank has already taken a break from that situation created about a year ago. He has sent left-arm medium pacers Mukesh Chaudhary and Chetan Sakaria to Australia as net bowlers to deal with the 22-year-old Pakistani fast bowler. All of them will get KL Rahul, Rohit Sharma, and Virat Kohli in the nets so that Shaheen Shah Afridi’s in-swinger cannot trouble the Indian batsmen.
Rameez Raja Confirms Shaheen’s Fitness
On Friday, Pakistan Cricket Board President Rameez Raja, while talking to the Pakistani channel Dawn News, announced Afridi’s fit and said that the fast bowler will be available for the first match against India.
It is important to remind here that on the Dubai ground, Afridi, a left-hander, took the news of Indian batsmen fiercely with his swing balls. Apart from Rahul-Rohit, he took the wicket of Virat Kohli. In such a situation, the Indian think tank has already decided to prepare the Indian batsmen for these swing balls of the left-arm bowler.
Aamir also had putten Indian batsmen in trouble
Left-arm fast bowlers have always troubled the Indian batsmen. Five years ago in the 2017 Champions Trophy, Pakistani fast bowler Mohammad Amir took a lot of class from Indian batsmen. In the final, Amir took 3 wickets for India by spending 16 runs. He dismissed Rohit Sharma (0), Virat Kohli (5), and Shikhar Dhawan (21).
