pakistan-vs-india-t20-liveWho can predict before the series that after 2 matches Pakistan will seal the series. Pakistan crushed India to take an unassailable lead The ODI was really embarrassing one for Indian top order batsman.They were forced to pavilion before the score broad approaches to 100. It was Indian batting who mess up the chances for Ms.Dhoni to play Third ODI 1-1. It is to remember that it was the first series after the retirement of Tendulkar. Indian team has to find the ways to be on winning side without the hand of Cricket legend. It may be assumed that Indian is going through transition period. Off late after Dravid,Vss Laxman and now Tendulkar ‘s retirement disturbs the balance of ODI side in terms of experience but on the other hand Shewag, Ghambir, Virat, Yuraj Singh all of them claim permanent place in the Indian line up.
Let’s talk about 85 runs win of Pakistan. Misbah’s 11 runs after having the opening stand of 142 runs Got out in 48th over of innings. Middle order of Pakistan never got a chance to get going. Azhar Ali, Mishab ul Haq and Younis khan throws away their wicket very cheaply. Ishanat Sharma bowls tight line he was a standout blower, Ravindra Jadega also troubles the Pakistan right handed batsman as they have problem to tackle left arm off spinners in the past. The target of 251 was set for Indain heavily batting line to chase down and made the series wide open.
Two left arm quick Junaid khan and seven footer Irfan forced the both openers to work hard to make any impression on the game. But from the word go Junaid khan never allowed both the openers to settle in. Junaid Khan took Ghambir and Virat Kholi’s wicket. Kholi had to depart due to brilliant catch of Kamran Akmal who is not very renown for such keeping .The first change bowler Umar Gull surprise Sehwag with classical inn swinger, Sehwag was trapped in front of the wickets. Youraj was also dismissed by Umar Gull. After that it was Pakistani spinner’s who dried up the runs. They made the life of batsman ever so difficult in the crease. Indian batsman’s given away 5 wickets to Pakistani spinner in their 22 overs, they only hit for 52 runs .Pakistani bowling attack made the life very easy for Misbha and ever so fragile for Dhoni’s eleven.
The last match will be played on 5th of this month. Pakistan has a chance to claim white wash against India. India will have to play well to rescue their Pride. Certainly Pakistan will have the upper hand in the last contest. We have to wait and see who will steal the show and who will face the music.
