IND vs PAK: Shubman Gill praises Babar Azam, makes strange statement on Pakistani pace attack

Read on the application

India and Pakistan will face each other in the Super-4 round of Asia Cup 2023 on Sunday. When India faced Babar Azam-led Pakistan in the group stage, the match was washed out by rain. Pakistan’s innings could not even begin. Along with this, the Indian team was reduced to 266 runs. All 10 wickets against India were taken by Pakistani pacers – Shaheen Afridi, Haris Rauf and Naseem. Ahead of the match against arch-rivals Pakistan, India’s opener Shubman Gill has spoken highly of Babar Azam.

Gill has described the Pakistani captain as a world-class player. He said that like players from other countries, Indian players also follow Babar Azam. “Yeah, we’re definitely following it,” Gill said Saturday. When a player is performing well, everyone looks at why he is performing so well. What is its specialty? The same applies to Babur. He is a world class player and we respect him a lot.

Apart from this, Gill made a strange statement about Pakistan’s pace attack in the press conference. He said that not playing against Pakistan’s bowlers has an impact in big tournaments. Let us tell you that bilateral cricket series is not being played between India and Pakistan for a long time. Both participate only in multinational tournaments. Experienced players like Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli recently found themselves in trouble against the left-arm fast bowler Shaheen. Indian top order batsmen face trouble on Afridi’s incoming ball.

Gill said, “We haven’t played as many matches against Pakistan as we have against other teams. We all know that this bowling attack is very good and when you don’t play against such bowling very often it makes little difference in big tournaments. He said, “Pakistan’s fast bowlers are very different. They have their own specialty. Shaheen swings the ball a lot. Naseem Shah concentrates on pace and picks help from the wicket. “They present different challenges in different circumstances.”
