India Playing XI vs Pakistan: 3 PUZZLES Rohit Sharma must solve

The top 5 look set with Rohit Sharma set to open with KL Rahul. Virat Kohli at No 3 while Suryakumar Yadav at No 4 and Rishabh Pant at No 5. Then on, it’s about fitting everyone in as per conditions demand.

Dinesh Kartik or Deepak Hooda: One is a designated finisher while the other one is an all-rounder who can be India’s 6th bowling option. Without Hooda, India will need all five bowlers to bowl full quota of four overs including Ravindra Jadeja and Hardik Pandya.

But it is position that will once again be a topic of debate. Hooda has done wonders batting in the top-order. Dinesh Karthik has also found success batting at No 7. But if Hooda is slotted in at No 6 with Hardik at 7 and Karthik dropped, it will not make sense to take the veteran player to Asia Cup.

Barring all the hullabaloo about Karthik’s form, he doesn’t offer India the balance. But since selectors have decided to trust Karthik, it is unlikely that he will be benched. Hence, Hooda is unlikely to make it to the Playing XI.

Who will partner Bhuvneshwar Kumar? – After England and West Indies tours, it is clear that Arshdeep Singh is ahead of Avesh Khan in the pecking order. Hence, it is likely that Arshdeep will partner Bhuvneshwar Kumar in Jasprit Bumrah and Harshal Patel’s absence.

In his short T20I career, Arshdeep Singh has super impressed the selectors. In 6 matches, he has bagged 9 wickets with a brilliant economy rate of 6.33. His yorkers and variations have been super-effective in death overs. In fact, in the five matches where he bowled in the death overs, Arshdeep returned with 7 wickets with an economy of 4.73, the best of the lot.

What makes Arshdeep Singh first-choice pacer?

  • But it’s his left-arm seam that makes him one of the priorities.
  • In 6 T20Is, he has bagged 9 wickets at an economy rate of 6.33.
  • The most expensive he has been in his T20I career when he conceded 18 runs in 2 overs against West Indies.
  • But it was his first full series and with 7 wickets in five matches, he bagged the Player of the Series award.
  • However, it’s his death-overs bowling that makes him an invaluable asset in Jasprit Bumrah’s absence.
  • In IPL 2022, Arshdeep was only behind Bumrah in terms of numbers in death overs.
  • Arshdeep had an economy of 7.58 in death overs slightly behind Bumrah at 7.38.
  • But for India in the five T20s where he has bowled in death overs, he has an economy rate of just 4.73 in exchange for 7 wickets.

Where will Ravindra Jadeja play? – Another big puzzle is where would Jadeja play. Considering he is the all-rounder and has batted admirably in the last few months, he should bat ahead of Karthik. But unlike DK, Jadeja isn’t an explosive hitter of the ball.

Hence, he will play more of a floater role in the Playing XI. If the situation demands, he can bat at 7 ahead of Karthik or the veteran can bat at 7 if it’s in the death overs.

India Playing XI vs Pakistan:

  1. Rohit Sharma (C)
  2. KL Rahul
  3. Virat Kohli
  4. Suryakumar Yadav
  5. Rishabh Pant (WK)
  6. Hardik Pandya
  7. Dinesh Karthik/ Deepak Hooda
  8. Ravindra Jadeja
  9. Bhuvneshwar Kumar
  10. Arshdeep Singh
  11. Yuzvendra Chahal

India Playing XI vs Pakistan: Other possible combinations –

  • Ravichandran Ashwin is also another possibility ahead of Jadeja.
  • With Yuzvendra Chahal being the premier spinner, Ashwin could take the place of 2nd spinner ahead of Jadeja in certain conditions.
  • The Top 6 including Hardik Pandya are automatic selection and will make it to the Playing XI of all matches.
  • However, there may be changes in the positions. Suryakumar Yadav passed the opening job with flying colours.
  • KL Rahul, who is still making a comeback from injury and hasn’t done so well as per Rohit Sharma’s template, can be dropped to No 4 in the middle-order.
