Now a few days are left in the big match between India and Pakistan in the T20 World Cup 2022. The two teams will face each other in front of millions of spectators at the Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG) on 23rd October.
The Indian team would like to take revenge for the crushing defeat against Pakistan in the last World Cup. In this important match, Pakistan’s ace fast bowler Shaheen Shah Afridi is making a comeback after injury and he is being described as the biggest threat to India. Because in the last World Cup, Afridi’s best spell broke the back of India’s batting line-up.
However, former India opener and current commentator Aakash Chopra believes that fast bowler Haris Rauf will be a bigger threat than Shaheen Afridi for India. He made his point in a tweet and said, “But I do feel the bowler to be wary of on Sunday isn’t Shaheen. It’s Haris Rauf. Afridi is getting close to his best but isn’t there yet…and unlikely to be by the 23rd either. Rauf will bowl the tougher overs and has the potential to make a difference.”

Let us tell you that Shaheen Shah Afridi was not even part of the Asia Cup 2022 for Pakistan team due to injury. Haris Rauf has been performing excellent bowling for Pakistan for the last several months.
Pakistan team has a great attack in the form of fast bowling, in addition to Afridi and Rauf, young Mohammad Hasnain, Naseem Shah, Mohammad Wasim Jr and Shahnawaz Dahani are also present in the team. All of the bowlers are known for their excellent speed and line length.
