Top Pakistani players to watch out for (against India): 

1. Mohammad Rizwan: There’s no doubt that Pakistan has the World’s best T20I batter. Mohammad Rizwan is in the first position of the ICC Men’s T20I batter rankings. Only Suryakumar Yadav overtook him for a few days but then he regained his position back.

2. Babar Azam: The skipper is one of the greatest players playing the game right now. The Pakistan cricket team is grateful to have a batter like Babar Azam. It will be very difficult for the Indian bowlers to get these openers out in the game on Sunday.

3. Shaheen Shah Afridi: Shaheen Afridi is back in Pakistan’s squad for the T20 World Cup was great news for Pakistan fans. Shaheen Afridi is a good pacer who also has a great record against India. He also performed well in the recent warm-up game against Afghanistan. The fans have seen Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli struggling against him. So, Indian players should be careful against the pacer on Sunday.

4. Naseem Shah: The Pakistani pacer named Naseem Shah has become one of the important players for Pakistan since the Asia Cup 2022. Naseem Shah performed well in the recent Asia Cup and not only in that but also in the 7-match T20I series against England. Naseem Shah is just 19-year old and he can prove to be a problem for India on Sunday.

5. Mohammad Nawaz: The all-rounder is also a player to watch out for in the game against India. The spin bowler was the third-highest wicket-taker in the recent Asia Cup 2022 after Indian pacer Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Sri Lankan spinner Wanindu Hasaranga. Mohammad Nawaz’s batting record is also amazing in the year 2022.
