Best Batter

Virat Kohli is one of the deadly batsmen of India. He has scored century in one of the previous matches. He can be a danger for the opponent team.

Best Bowler

Shaheen Afridi being a classy left-arm pacer is hard to handle for India. In Pak vs. India match he has already taken wickets of Indian skillful players i.e., Rohit and Kohli. So, Indian team may find it hard to bat against him.

SWOT Analysis for Both Teams

Here we go with a SWOT (strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats) Analysis of both the teams:

Team Pakistan Strengths

The Pakistani pacers trio i.e., Shaheen Afridi, Naseem Shah and Haris Rauf will be the strength of their team. The pitch is highly supportive to pacers as compared to batters.

Team Pakistan Weaknesses 

Inconsistency of Pakistani batsmen can prove to be their weakness. The opening batsmen may rise the score but in the middle order the score usually falls. As we saw in previous match against Nepal when their was a sudden rise in middle order by Baber and Iftikhar but the openers failed to score.

Opportunities for Team Pakistan 

Pakistan has played 11 ODI matches this year out of which it has won 8. It is an advantage for them to be in form just before the Asia Cup. They posses a good record in ODI as well.

Threats for Team Pakistan

Their unpredictability and inconsistency is the biggest threat for them. It can be seen in the previous matches played

Team India Strengths

Their strength is mainly the top-order batsmen which include Kohli, Sharma along with Shubam Gill. These skillful players are ready to fight against the Pakistani pacers Naseem Shah and Shaheen Afridi.

Team India Weaknesses 

The lack of good middle order players might be challenging for team India. They can’t play under pressure except their top orders.

Opportunities for Team India 

Being a left hander Ishan will show the game varieties and the return of Iyer as well as Rahul may strengthen their batting lineup

Threats for Team India

There are still concerns about fitness of Rahul after his return. Indian players returned after injuries are yet to be tested after practice. They might be a threat for their teams.
