Three Pakistanis to Watch Out for in the Indo-Pak Contest


It is always special when Pakistan and India meet for a contest on the cricket field. Despite being favorites the Indian boys would know that the green shirts play an unpredictable game and hence, remain dangerous particularly, if their bowlers find seam and swing early in the innings.

Here is a quick list of 3 Pakistani boys who are capable of making way for an upset when two arch-rivals meet in Birmingham on the 4th of June, 2017.

Faheem Ashraf is likely to make his debut against India when Pakistan plays its opening game of the Champions Trophy. Despite this being his first international tour, he has already established a reputation of being the new hard hitting all-rounder in town. His performance against Bangladesh in the warm-up game allowed him to receive praise from different quarters and thus, expectations remain high as Pakistan look set to unleash one of their surprise packages.

Amir ever since his returned has done well in One day Internationals (ODIs). With English conditions conducive to seam and swing, fans in the country remain optimistic of a match winning spell from the left-arm quick.

Babar Azam remains to be a bright spot in the otherwise fragile batting line-up of the green shirts. He has consistently scored big against quality oppositions ever since making his debut and hence, Pakistan will be hoping for another match winning knock from him when the two Asian giants meet in England.
