India Playing XI vs PAK – IND vs PAK LIVE: The news coming in from Indian team camp is that the TEAM MANAGEMENT has taken one big decision on Indian Playing XI, but the other one stays pending. Rishabh Pant is set to sit out from the Playing XI vs Pakistan and instead Dinesh Karthik will keep Indian WICKETS. But captain Rohit Sharma & Coach Rahul Dravid is yet to take their call on choice between Mohammad Shami & Harshal Patel.

Why Shami vs Harshal Patel has become headache for Rohit? India’s warm-up game vs NewZealand was washed out on Wednesday adding to Rohit Sharma’s headache. While most of India’s combination is set and ready, questions persist with the pace department as Mohammad Shami has just bowled 1 over and Harshal Patel battle is struggling.

The clash against NZ would have given much more clarity on the same, but with rains taking the opportunity away, Rohit Sharma and head coach Rahul Dravid have a lot to ponder.

India Playing XI vs PAK: Harshal Patel or Mohammad Shami? Harshal Patel has struggled for form since his return from an injury. Although he has done well in the last two games against Western Australia XI and Australia, there is still a shred of doubt. He returned with figures of 2/27 in India’s defeat against WA-XI. Against Australia, Harshal conceded 30 runs in three overs for a solitary wicket. More importantly, the 31-year-old conceded just five runs in the penultimate over to keep India in the hunt. Mohammad Shami however stole the show, albeit bowling just 1 over after return to T20s for the first time since IPL 2022 final. He successfully defended 11 off the final over. The veteran finished his solitary over with 3/4, nailing three perfect yorkers to derail what certainly seemed like an Australia win. Shami’s experience and his performance in the final over vs Australia does make him a favourite to make the final XI. However, on the downside, that final over is the only bowling Shami has had in the past three months, which included COVID-19 isolation. A final decision will now only be taken after India’s final nets session on Saturday.India Playing XI vs PAK: Rohit Sharma faces Mohammad Shami vs Harshal Patel conundrum in MEGA Pakistan clash, Follow ICC T20 World Cup 2022 LIVE

Arshdeep Singh is certainly the other one to get at least an over against Pakistan at the death. With Bhuvneshwar Kumar struggling in the 19th over, the youngster could be given the responsibility to bowl the most crucial over. It will be between Shami and Harshal to get the final over.

The other spot up for grabs is that of a front-line spinner, with Rajasthan Royals teammates Yuzvendra Chahal and Ravichandran Ashwin fighting for a spot. Chahal has been sensational since his return to the scheme of things, but his economy rate has been a concern. Ashwin offers a more economical option, along with some batting depth. But he has not proven to be a wicket-taking option in T20s of late.

But as Pakistan have as many as 3 left-handers in the Playing XI, Rohit Sharma and Rahul Dravid could be tempted to go with Ashwin. Axar Patel will be a bad match-up against left-handers as the ball would turn to their off-side.

The rest of the Indian line-up is solid with a set top five comprising of Rohit Sharma, KL Rahul, Virat Kohli and Suryakumar Yadav. Axar Patel slots in as Ravindra Jadeja’s replacement leaving only the wicket-keeper’s spot up for debate. Dinesh Karthik has done well in his limited chances, dovetailing as India’s specialist finisher. While Rishabh Pant adds a left-handed option in a predominant right-handed line-up, he has struggled for form in the warm-up matches so far.
