Key Players

Mohammed Siraj exhibited fiery fast bowling, taking four wickets in the second over itself. Hardik Pandya claimed three wickets, while Jasprit Bumrah took one.

Looking Ahead

Following their victory in the Asia Cup, Team India will now prepare for the three-match ODI series against Australia, starting September 22. This series will serve as key preparation for the ODI World Cup scheduled later this year.

Akram’s Opinion

Former Pakistan captain Wasim Akram believes the Australia series is unnecessary and may add to the fatigue of the Indian players ahead of the World Cup.

According to Akram, the travel between different venues in India and the lack of rest time between matches is a concern. He suggests that India should consider playing other players in the bilateral series against Australia.

India at the World Cup

Team India will take part in two warm-up matches before the World Cup against England (September 30) and Netherlands (October 3). The tournament proper begins with a match against Australia.

The highly anticipated clash between India and Pakistan will take place at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad.
