Tri Nation 2008: India-Pakistan Live Updates

India and Pakistan are going to face each other in an important group stage match of Kitply Cup at the Shere Bangla National Stadium, Dhaka on 10th June 2008. Pakistan defeated host Bangladesh convincingly by 70 runs in the first match of the tournament. So, a victory for Pakistan tomorrow would ensure them a sport in the final. On the other hand, India will look to start the tournament with a victory over arch-rival Pakistan. Otherwise, India must have to defeat Bangladesh in the last group match to get into the final of the tournament.

India and Pakistan are traditional rivals in cricket. India vs Pakistan cricket match always attracts the cricket fans due to their rivalry and fans on both sides consider it as a cricket war. So, India vs Pakistan cricket matches are always very interesting and exciting.

India vs Pakistan: Head to Head
This is going to be the first India-Pakistan match this year as they took on each other last time in November 2007 which Pakistan won by 31 runs. Indian and Pakistan faced each other in 109 times so far, with Pakistan winning on 66 occasions, while India emerged winner in 43 matches. Other 9 matches were abandoned/ no results/ cancelled. So, you can see that in terms head to head meetings, Pakistan had better success in ODI matches. However, India has had better success over Pakistan in the recent past. In the last two years, India and Pakistan faced each other in 13 matches, in which India won eight times, while Pakistan emerged winner in four matches and the other match was abandoned.

As it is the first India vs Pakistan match of the year, cricket fans are very much excited with this match and eagerly waiting for the match. India played their last ODI match in the CB series earlier this year and after that, India did not have any international ODI schedule as they were busy with test series with South Africa and later on with IPL Twenty20 tournament. So, after a couple of months Indian will play their first ODI match tomorrow against Pakistan.

India’s ODI squad includes a number of young players including three uncapped players: Manpreet Gony, Yusuf Pathan and Pragyan Ojha. All of them have been called up for the first time due to their excellent performance in the recently concluded Indian premier league. India’s three star batsmen, Sachin Tendulkar, Sourav Ganguly and Rahul Dravid. However, all of the current players have proven their form in IPL and other tournaments. So, the team seems to be very strong and balanced. The only bad news for Indian fans is the injury of pacer Sreesanth.

Openers Gautam Gambhir and Virender Sehwag have been excellent in IPL. Mahendra Singh Dhoni and Yuvraj Singh are the two main strengths of Indian middle order. RP Singh is expected to lead pace attack, while Piyush Chawla will lead their spin attack. Indian squad includes two all rounders: Yusuf Pathan and Irfan Pathan.

Pakistan did not face any problem to outclass Bangladesh in the first match, though it is true that the match against India would not be that much easy. Opener Salman Butt played an excellent innings of 70 runs, while his opening partner wicket keeper Kamran Akmal scored 25 runs before getting out. Mohammad Yousuf continued with his well played 59 runs. Later on Misbah-ul-Haq played a quick fire innings of 39 off 22 balls. Despite the absence of pacer Asif, Umar Gul and Wahib Riaz played well not to let Asif’s presence being felt. Shahid Afridi was up to the mark with his leg spin against Bangladesh in the first match.

Both teams have taken this tournament seriously ahead of the Asia Cup 2008. Asia Cup 2008 is due to start in Pakistan later this month.

AFP reported:
"We look forward to the series in Bangladesh because it will help us get into
the groove for the Asia Cup at home," said Pakistan's Australian coach Geoff
Lawson. "The boys are desperate to play good cricket again."
There will be no
respite for Mahendra Singh Dhoni's men until next March, with Test tours to Sri
Lanka and Pakistan, home series against Australia and England and the Asia Cup
and Champions Trophy to play.
"There has been a lot of cricket for us but
that is the life of a modern sportsman," said Dhoni. "Motivation is never a
problem when playing for India. The key is to stay fit and pace

So, it is expected that an exciting match is waiting there at the Shere Bangla National Stadium, Mirpur in Dhaka. The main challenge of Indian cricketers would be to assimilate with the ODI style after playing a lot of Twenty20 matches in the last one and half months. Pakistan also has a balanced squad which can produce enough resistance against India. The youngsters like Rohit Shrma and Suresh Raina shows the strength of their batting line up.

Batting is the main strength of Indian team, while pace attack is their main strength even though they are not getting the service of their ace pacer Asif. The wicket of the Shere Bangla National Stadium might be spin friendly, and rain could be a factor in the match as raining is common-a-matter in Bangladesh at this time of the year and in almost every evening it is raining in Dhaka now. Even the first match of the tournament was shorted due to this problem. We hope there will be no such problem tomorrow.
