India Vs Pakistan Match ICC T20 world cup

India and Pakistan Match

It's a sin not to talk about cricket during the T20 world cup time in India and it's even more sin not to blog about India and Pakistan match during the world cup when you have a cricket blog.

This cricket blog is started out as a to kill time. but for the past three months, I didn't find a time to blog about the second part of the Indian Premier League. I know that India - Pakistan match is near but I didn't see it coming this early. The big day is tomorrow and the people are getting excited for the match.

Coming to the Match Analytics, the Last time both faced is during the 2019 world cup match. In that match, India won it by DLS Method due to rain.

This time the odds are even, the team that chose to bat first with the highest score might have a chance to be undefeatable at this match. The team that chases the score might feel the pressure of 1.5 billion people who are watching the match just alone from the two countries.

Some politicians in India, most of the Right-Wing Hindu Activists proposed to boycott the match due to reported violence against Hindus in Pakistan last month and the Kashmir issue are the main reason behind the proposal. This proposal created different opinions in the cricket fans and the activists.

One side says the match should be played as usual the victory should be the answer to their behaviour against our brothers in Pakistan, and the other says the Indian team shouldn't be playing with them as a protest against their actions.

Anyway, the match is going to play as scheduled by the ICC in Dubai International Stadium. Don't miss watching Live on Starports and on Hotstar (subscription required).

The 14th edition of the Indian Premier league is postponed after a few players from the Kolkata Knight Riders and a few staff members from Chennai Super Kings tested positive for coronavirus.

The BCCI announced that the tournament will be paused momentarily and they will provide safe passage for all the players and the supporting staff to reach their homes. 

Currently, there is no word on when the tournament would be resumed. 

In my personal opinion, the tournament will be postponed for at least 3 months and might move away from India to complete the remaining half of the tournament.

This is the penultimate match of the season's first round. After the 28th match between SRH and RR, the first round of the season will be completed, where all the team have played with all the other 7 seven other teams once. from the 29th match, the team will be playing for the second time.

This is a big match for the Indian Premier League fans, as we can expect a thriller match and the aggression of some serious rivalry between the two teams. Both the teams have played 6 matches till now, in which CSK only lost a match to DC whereas MI lost 3 matches.

The 27th match of the IPL will be played in Motera Stadium, Ahmedabad and the match begins at 7:30 PM.

Chennai Super Kings

Chennai has able to win all the matches but the first match against the Delhi Capitals. In that match, the team has performed well but, the DC has performed better than them.

This team has able to break the winning streak of the Royal Challengers Bangalore by taking the wickets of the team's big-guns in the middle over. 

All thanks to Sir Jadeja, he scored 37 runs from Harshal Patel's last over and took 3 wickets in the second innings.

Chennai needs to be careful by not giving any runs to Mumbai Indians in the death overs. If they are succeded in restricting them, Chennai is going to win.

The CSK batting big guns needs to flourish in the powerplay and try to set a maximum score and make MI harder to chase in the following innings, if they chose to bat first.

Chennai Super Kings Squad

Probable Playing 11

1 Faf du Plessis, 2 Ruturaj Gaikwad, 3 Moeen Ali, 4 Suresh Raina, 5 Ambati Rayudu, 6 Ravindra Jadeja, 7 MS Dhoni (capt & wk), 8 Sam Curran, 9 Shardul Thakur, 10 Deepak Chahar, 11 Lungi Ngidi

Mumbai Indians

In the 6 matches they have played, MI just won 3 matches. They won those matches because of very good bowling. Mumbai Indians have lost their touch in the batting as they are not scoring much compared to last year.

In the death over, the team is struggling as the death bowling specialist batsmen are failing to score runs and losing wickets in the process.

If this continues, it might hard even to secure 4th position on the points table. Its time for Mumbai Indians to change the squad and try to do experimenting with new players.

The CSK bowling and MI bowling is equal in all aspects,but the team whcih adapts to the situation and pressure will be the winner.

Quick wickets and tight feeling might save them from Chennai Super Kings in today's match.

Mumbai Indians Squad

Probable playing 11

 1 Quinton de Kock (wk), 2 Rohit Sharma (capt), 3 Suryakumar Yadav, 4 Krunal Pandya, 5 Kieron Pollard, 6 Hardik Pandya, 7 Nathan Coulter-Nile, 8 Jayant Yadav, 9 Rahul Chahar, 10 Trent Boult, 11 Jasprit Bumrah
