With just two days left for the blockbuster 2022 T20 World Cup match between India and Pakistan at the Melbourne Cricket Ground, and predictions have already been coming in for the match. Former India cricketer Suresh Raina has been among them, who rather made a prediction on the fate of Pakistan batter Babar Azam in the match against India. While he hailed the Pakistan opening batter, he predicted, the India bowler who will dismiss him.

Speaking to Quint, Raina was full of praise for Babar, but felt that star India bowler, Arshdeep Singh, will dismiss him in the match against India.

“He is good skipper and a really good cricketer. He has done really well for his team. But hopefully, when he comes to play against us, Arshdeep Singh will get him out,” he said.

This will be the third time the two will face each other in a T20I match after having faced each other in the two meetings in Asia Cup last month. Babar managed six runs in as many balls against Arshdeep in two innings which included a boundary and three dot balls.

However, Babar has shown certain vulnerability against left-arm pacers. He has been dismissed 12 times by the variety in the last two years, at a strike rate of just 133 in T20 cricket.
