“The Arch Rivals”, probably the perfect word to define the relationship between the two neighbors. Pakistan and India are two very fine Asian cricketing teams. Without any shadow of a doubt, these two have the biggest rivalry in cricket. And not just cricket, Pakistan and India are the biggest rivals in any sport they come across each other let it be hockey, Kabaddi or any other game. This rivalry started right from the Partition of British India, When the subcontinent was divided into two countries, Pakistan and India (Bharat). since then, both these nations have been great rivals.

Cricket flows through the veins of the people in India and Pakistan and as they say, Pakistan vs India is not just a game between Pakistan Cricket team vs Indian Cricket Team, Its way more than that as Both the nations are behind their teams and a warlike environment is established whenever the two cricketing giants lock horns on cricket field. The entire world sets their eyes in whenever Pakistan and India are playing each other.

THE INDIA-PAKISTAN CRICKET RIVALRY

PAKISTAN’s FIRST TOUR TO INDIA

The cricket Rivalry dates back to 1952-1953 INDIA vs PAKISTAN series when the two nations first played each other in Test cricket. Pakistan team under the captaincy of Abdul Hafeez Kardar toured India where they played series of 3 test matches. In Delhi, the first test match was won by India, while in Lucknow Pakistan won the 2nd test match which led to an angry reaction from the home crowd towards their team. Last two matches were drawn and India clinched the series by 2-1.

INDIA’s FIRST TOUT TO PAKISTAN

Indian team toured Pakistan for the first time in 1954-55, It was a long tour of 5 Test matches. It must be reminded that back in those days test matches lasted for only 4-days unlike now when a 5-day match is played. This series was not conclusive at all and ended up as 0-0 with all 5 matches drawn.

Shorter Formats IND v PAK in ODIs and T20Is

India and Pakistan played their first ODI against each other on 1 October 1978, and their first meeting in T20 was on 14 September 2007. Between 1962 and 1977, there was no cricket play in between these two nations because of two major wars in 1965 and 1971. The 1999 Kargil conflict and 2008 Mumbai attack also interrupted the cricketing ties between the two nations.

Now, this stat has grown into a psychological headache for Pakistan and an edge for India as they meet in the World cup events. Let’s see if the Men in Green will be able to turn the tides in their favor this time around. ENGvPAK 5ODI series

ENGvPAK 5ODI series

England won the 5th-Match ODI series 4-0

Pakistan Lost 4th- ODI match to England

Pakistan lost another high scoring game to England in ongoing 5 match ODI series. This England vs Pakistan series is more of a World Cup preparation for both the teams. After the first ODI was abandoned due to rain at THE OVAL (London). Rest has been a complete struggle for the visitors where they have played and lost 4 High scoring matches on the trot.

England has Won the 5-ODI match series with a convincing 4-0 lead with also winning the final 5th-ODI match held at Leeds. All Matches were high scoring matches with 350 runs on average scored in each game. Pakistani batting was rather competitive during all three ODIs. Fakhar Zaman, Imam Ul Haq and Babar Azam score centuries and Asif Ali also chipped in with consecutive 50s. Captain Sarfraz also coming back into touch after a long time, scored 97 runs when he was run out in a funny way courtesy Jos Buttler’s acrobatics with his leg. However, it was Pakistan Team’s bowling which led them down on these flat pitches. Pakistani bowling is fairly more use to play on flat pitches in UAE however to everyone’s surprise Pakistani Bowlers were below power in all three matches. Ordinary bowling was further led down by poor ground fielding regardless of some young legs in the side, the fielding was a stress for the visitors in all three matches.

ALSO READ: WHY PAK vs ENG SERIES WAS SO IMPORTANT

Not only the side looks low on confidence but also the worries of right bowling combination for the world cup is a headache now for the head coach Micky Arthur. Muhammad Amir will join the stumbling bowling lineup in World Cup 2019, However, with his out of form poor run in the past series this year, people are skeptical of any quick improvements.

On the other hand, this series was not only a huge confidence booster for the England side moreover they managed to test all players on the bench for the coming World Cup Squad. Players like TOM CURRAN, JOE DENLY, and JOFRA ARCHER showed promise and performed very well making it ever so difficult for the England selectors to pick and drop players for the World Cup Squad.

Amir and Asif are back

Muhammad Amir and Asif Ali are Back for WorldCup 2019

Muhammad Amir and Asif Ali who were left out of Pakistan’s World Cup squad initially are now called back into the side as confirmed by the PCB’s selection committee headed by Inzimam-ul-Haq.

Previously Both Players were dropped because of their poor run in ODI format this year but were given one last chance in the PAKISTAN vs ENGLAND ODI series. The recent announcement from Chairman selection committee can after Asif Ali made full use of this opportunity and scored consecutive 50’s in 2nd and 3rd ODIs against England. All matches have been high scoring matches where a striker like Asif Ali can be more than handy in the late order to boost strike rate.

On the contrary, Muhammad Amir who is currently medically ill amid chicken pox is included in the side due to the poor run of Pakistani fast bowlers against England where they have conceded more than 350 runs consistently and none of the top 4 bowlers have shown any significant performance for the side.

Wasim Akram and other former cricketers including Ramiz Raja also spoke about the Amir’s case and why he should be in Pakistan’s World Cup Campaign 2019. With recent poor performances by Faheem Ashraf and untested New inclusion of Abid Ali had made ways for Amir and Asif. Both players are set to get into the WC squad replacing Faheem Ashraf and Abid Ali for WC 2019.

We can only hope that Amir can get his mojo back in the coming major event and perform for Pakistan just as he did in the ICC Champions trophy. Whereas Asif is already back in form and he just needs to continue his form into the world cup 2019. Still, there are a couple of matches against England left in the series where Asif needs can take his recent confidence to uplift his performance in the coming games.

Mitchell Starc Aussie Bowler

Starc to add some spark! Mitchell Starc is Back

Mitchell Starc who is the front-line attack bowler for Australian team was out nursing a pectoral injury for the past three months. Starc is now back in the team playing in the ongoing 3 practice match series for World Cup 2019 against New Zealand.  Series between Australia vs New Zealand is now leveled 1-1 after New Zealand won the second ODI comfortably by 7 wickets and 16 balls to spare. Starc once again proved to be the cornerstone of the Aussie pace attack, apart from Starc Aussie bowling attack looked one rather dimensional and shaky as the World Cup candidate Kane Richardson was again not amongst the wickets finishing with 52-0 in his 10 overs. Whereas the SA Abbott was the most expensive of the lot giving away 57 in 7.2 overs. Nathan Lyon the spinner called in for World Cup 2019 squad was also wicketless. However, Mitchell Starc was the only standout performer with 2 quick wickets in his short 5 over spell giving away just 14 runs. In Batting Steve Smith also shined with his unbeaten 89* runs innings showing positive signs for the upcoming mega event.

Mitchel Starc Bowling Stats:

29 years of age Mitchell Starc has been phenomenal since his debut in 2010. He has very good numbers especially in the shorter formats of the game. In ODI’s he has been the go-to man for his captain under pressure situations. Here are Mitchel Starc’s career stats.

Cricket Format Matches Wickets Economy Average
Test 2011- 51 211 3.39 28.2
ODI 2010- 75 145 4.95 21.4
T20I 2012- 23 31 6.76 19.1
T20 2009- 86 128 7.14 17.5

Starc Bringing Balance to the Australian Bowling Lineup

At first Australians had Mitchell Johnson and then came Mitchell Starc, Johnson was known for his raw pace while the Starc brought more seam control to the Aussie bowling lineup, though fast enough Starc has a remarkable control especially in case of white ball and he has been nailing the job for a good decade now for team Australia with his bowling. He has been the star of several tournaments for Australia however his amazing performance ICC World Cup 2015 remains the highlight of his career where he was also given the Player of the Tournament award. Looks like Starc is back just in time to raise the hopes of Aussie fans as Australian team needed him badly. The Aussie attack was looking extremely one dimensional and some time out of sorts against good opponents on good decks. With Starc’s experience and expertise, this is to change now and Australia will now move into the ICC World Cup 2019 with a very well-balanced side.

Last year, David Warner and Steve Smith were also surrounded by controversies and were caught wanting in an indecent controversy which took everyone by surprise. It eventually led both of them out of the cricket. Recently, on 29th-March, both the Star players ban was lifted and their banishment came to an end which paved their way into the Aussie WC 2019 squad.

THE “SANDPAPER GATE” CONTROVERSY:

WHAT WENT WRONG FOR SMITH AND WARNER

Last year in March 2018, the Australian cricket team was in South Africa, during the third test match of the series when the Australian side was in serious trouble, Steve Smith gave the ball to the Bancroft which was then tampered with the sandpaper, caught by the television cameras. afterward, Cricket Australia had to tackle the matter, which they did with a strict approach, and after accepting their mistake, all three players including Warner and Smith were banned for a year from international and from domestic cricket as well. Bancroft did that act on instructions of both senior player so Cricket Australia minimize his banned and allow him to play domestic cricket in December last year. Steve Smith and David Warner finished their punishment later this March-29th and were free to play international cricket from March 2019 onwards. After this scandal, the Australian coach stepped down from his role and Justin Langer took over the office. In a very emotional presser, Smith apologized to his fans and promised Aussie board and his nation not to repeat this at any cost. The entire scandal is known as “Sandpaper Gate” scandal.

CONSEQUENCES OF THE CONTROVERSY:

Before the events of Sandpaper Gate, Steve Smith and David Warner were the Aussie Captain and Vice-captain of their side respectively. After the scandal both the players were instantly removed from their respective positions, which was the major and most prominent loss of the Australian side. Afterward, the team was then led by Tim Paine, who was new to the Job and fairly inexperienced than Steve Smith.

Australian team’s performance was degraded and going downhill continuously, when finally, AUS vs IND win in Perth came as a relief for Captain Tim Paine. Later they lost quite a few on the trot and in short, the Qantas was ever the same after the demise of Smith and warner.

COME BACK OF THE LETHAL DUO:

The suspension ended in March 2019, both Smith and Warner were instantly playing cricket afterward, both were selected for the IPL season 12. Smith was part of IPL team Rajasthan Royals (RR) whereas Warner got his ticket into SunRisers Hyderabad (SRH). Both Players had an awesome IPL season 12 so far and performed with magical figures for RR and SRH this IPL 2019.

Player Season Mat Runs HS Ave SR 100 50 4s 6s
David Warner IPL 2019 12 692 100* 69.2 143.86 1 8 57 21
Steve Smith IPL 2019 12 319 73* 39.87 116 0 3 30 4


Keeping in view their splendid form they were naturally inducted into the Aussie side though with some resistance from within the board they finally managed to get into the Aussie World Cup 2019 Squad. Because of the lethal combination of these two and some good experience in their bag. Inclusion of Smith and warner into the Australian Team has put the Australian side once again amongst the favorites for the WC 2019.

Come back of 32 years old David Warner and 29 years old Steve Smith gives much-needed strength to the Australian batting lineup, which has always been up to the mark previously but was suffering in recent times. David Warner, a world-class opener with aggressive nature, hits the ball hard, capable of hitting big shots, ultimately benefits Australian side with his strike force in the upcoming mega event. Warner’s presence in the top order is enough to disturb any bowling attack on a given day. Having a player like David Warner with an average of 43.4 is certainly a blessing for any team.

Steve Smith, the young and aggressive captain but a very calm and resistant batsman who is known for his calm and steady batting style. He always had a role at one down position to bring the stability and balance to the Batting lineup by playing anchor innings, which helps the coming batsmen to strike easily and play freely. During the suspension years, this position was a point of worry for the Selectors But now the tables have turned and the vacancy is filled with the Master class of Smith. With just days remaining in ICC World Cup 2019, it’s the perfect magic serum for team Australia.

Inclusion of Steve Smith and David Warner in the World Cup squad will have a huge impact on the Aussie campaign. Let’s see what do they bring to the side as usually most of us don’t get a second chance but when we do, we have to make it count! 

ENGvsPAK

Why PAK vs ENG Matters?

PAKISTAN VS ENGLAND SERIES 2019:

Just before the mega event of the Cricketing world (ODI World Cup 2019 edition) starts, All Cricket teams tend to finalize their World Cup preparations and evaluate their best possible lethal combination for the world cup. As the world cup is just around the corner, Pakistan has the most important away series against the host of the 2019 world cup (England Cricket Team). This series is perhaps the most important series for Pakistan in their cricket calendar year. It is such a significant series as visitors prepare their young guns on the pitches where will soon be playing the mega event.

A WIN WIN SITUATION FOR PAK and ENG

The strategic timing of this Pakistan vs England 2019 series is very crucial as there is so much to take away from this on going series. Both Young and unpredictable yet capable teams are head to head in ODI format just before the World Cup. Getting a “Match” Practice on similar conditions is priceless for both teams as the practice matches doesn’t really serve the purpose when compared with actual Match practice. Both teams are well aware of this and its a WIN WIN situation for both the cricket teams. But there is more for Pakistan to take way. Because they are still experimenting.

PAK PACERS GETTING TO KNOW THE CONDITIONS

Pakistan Cricket Team is heavily loaded with very capable young Pacers. For some of them, it is their first visit to the alien conditions of England. These England conditions are very different from the one back home for Pakistani pacers. getting to know these conditions ahead of World cup is a huge bonus for Pakistan, Its a blessing in disguise. This series consists of only one Twenty20 (T20I) and 5 ODIs (One-day Internationals), which help Pakistan to prepare well before the world cup. Pakistan will play their first match of the world cup against West Indies on 31st May 2019 while England will play their first match of the world cup against South Africa on 30th May 2019.

HISTORY OF PAKISTAN VS ENGLAND IN ODIs:

Let us go down the memory lane to see what history unfolds about Pakistan vs England matches and their past encounters. ODI cricket itself is very old and if we talk about England they are the pioneers of this format. England played their first ODI against Australia in January 1971 and the interesting fact is that this match was the first ODI ever played by any team, while Pakistan played their first ODI against New Zealand in 1973, but registered their first win against England in 1974.

England cricket team played 727 ODIs, with 363 victories, 330 defeats, 8 ties and 26 no results, having 49.93 winning%. While Pakistan Cricket team played 912 ODIs, with 479 victories, 406 defeats, 8 ties, and 19 matches ended with no results, having 52.52 winning%.

if we look at the history of head to head in ODI, Pakistan and England faced each other 82 times, in which Pakistan Cricket team wins 31 times (38.75 winning%), while England Cricket team wins 49 times (61.25 winning%), while 2 matches ended with no results. According to these stats, the England cricket team surely has a great edge over the Pakistan Cricket team.

ICC WORLD CUP EVENTS AND PAK VS ENG SERIES:

WINNING THIS SERIES WILL MAKE THEM WORLD CUP FAVORITES?

Whats on Stake?

As the ICC World Cup 2019 is scheduled this month on 30th May, Pakistan vs England series has its undenied importance in the whole scenario. With the exception of few veteran players like Shoaib Malik, Muhammad Hafeez, Sarfaraz Ahmed, Pakistan team is packed with young talented players who will be playing on these sorts of fast pitches, in fact, some of the young guys had no experience of playing in England, Players like Muhammad Hasnain, Shaheen Shah Afridi, and Abid Ali will experience these conditions first hand before the mega event, thus this series benefits these young lads and Pakistan cricket team a lot. If we talk about England side that how this series benefits England cricket team? So the answer is very simple, as each and every team knows Pakistan always has the best and lethal bowling lineup and bowlers, so Practicing against such quality bowling lineup helps England batsmen a lot in the mega event. England also has some debutants who play their first series against Pakistan, and if they perform well in this series they may be in the squad for the world cup, so this is how this entire series is important for both the teams.

STRENGTHS AND WEAKNESSES OF BOTH TEAMS:

PAKISTAN TEAM

Each team has its own strengths and weaknesses, Teams tend to identify their weaknesses and resolve them through improvements in technique or inclusion of fresh blood and they try to boost their strengths by capitalizing on the in-form players and using the expertise of experienced and well-established team members If we talk about Pakistan Cricket Team, and we just droll down a few years back, there were several wounding weaknesses in the side, which were hurting the Pakistan team since long time. Most prominently the fielding and chasing or should be say Chasing a big total. However, that very team did have an absolute lethal and demolishing bowling lineup, which was capable of demolishing any sort of batting line badly. On the contrary, if we inspect this present Pakistan Side, it appears to be totally different from the past. Pakistani cricket team as a side improved a lot in recent times, working on their batting, bowling, fielding even each and every department of cricket. still, there are few lacking as like missing a proper opener, a proper hitter at the lower order and a wicket-taking attacking bowler as like Wasim Akram, Muhammad Asif, etc. if we talk about the strengths of Pakistan, with no doubt each and every one says that its lethal bowling line which is capable of demolishing any sort of batting line and also defend any sort of total.

ENGLAND TEAM

If we take our magnifying glass and Observe the England side, their major lacking or weakness during the past few years is their bowling lineup. England side lacks the experience that James Anderson and Stuart Broad once brought into the side. Some young pacers of England are performing well but the spark, agility, and experience that James Anderson and Stuart Broad had, is definitely missing in the side. As we talk about the strengths of the England side, England side is capable of demolishing any world class side because England has a brilliant batting lineup with a lot of experience into play. Their Ace players in the form of Eoin Morgan and Joe Root are in great form and performing consistently for their side. England as a Fielding side is very up to the mark as well. historically they have been good in this region and there are no surprises that the current England team is also full of spark and sharpness in the field. They are very athletic and very fit in the outfield. It is a perfectly balanced side.

WHO CAN WIN PAKISTAN VS ENGLAND SERIES 2019?

WHO IS FAVORITE? LETS COMPARE!

In the First T20I England made it look all too easy by winning the match with 7 wickets. But ODI is a different ball game altogether. Though not one of the strongholds of Pakistan, ODI cricket will bring in new players from both sides especially the ones to be tested for the Worldcup squad for form and consistency. Thus its slightly early to call it at this particular moment that what is going to be the fate of this epic series coming up just before the world cup. Both teams have outstanding players who are capable of doing something out of the box. Pakistan team Led by Sarfaraz who is known for fighting spirit. He fights for his side and for the match till the very last ball bowled. He is not a sort of skipper who gives up too quickly. and everyone remembers who his this attitude made the difference when Pakistan lifted the ICC champion trophy winner in the same venue. On contrary Engish, Team is led by Eoin Morgan, who is known for his calm nature and brilliant leadership in a tough situation, where his calmness and brilliant decisions lead his team to the victory. He is also a great batsman and on many occasion led his team from the front and made over the line.

So if we compare both teams, both teams do have their own strengths and weaknesses and both the teams contain some young Players which will add a surprise element to this all-important series but if we talk about experience, England has a little edge over Pakistan side. And if we talk about head to head stats between Pakistan and England, this also put the England side a point above the Pakistan side. So one would guess it be the England team as winners of this series with the home ground advantage and a most consistent record in bilateral series against Pakistan. However, they say Cricket is a very unpredictable game and you just never know with cricket what is coming. Let’s enjoy the good cricket coming our way.

Why Amir is not playing ICC World CUP 2019

Why Mohammad Amir Dropped from WC 2019?

Mohammad Amir and Pakistan Cricket.

Mohammad Amir the Star bowler of Pakistan was born in April 13 1992. He is 27 years of age now. Mohammad Amir debuted for Pakistan Cricket Team ten years back in July 2009. He entered the Cricket World with a bang and was dubbed as the “Next Best Thing in World Cricket” very quickly. His Left-arm Fast bowling was a blessing in disguise for the Pakistani cricket team but then suddenly everything changed !

Muhammad Amir was caught in a Spot-Fixing scandal that shocked Pakistani Cricket and the whole world when Pakistan was on England tour in November 2011. At that time he was on his career peak in such young age. Many thought he could be the next Waseem Akram for Pakistan. Amir was the first one to admit his mistake and was immediately banned from world cricket for 5 long years.

Return of Mohammad Amir to Pakistan Cricket Team

After 5 long years of Ban and rehabilitation Mohammad Amir who was still loved and remembered by his fans was finally given a green signal to play for the Pakistan National Cricket Team and on August 2015 he came back to the Pakistan side once more for the better.

AMIR RECENT PERFORMANCES

Mohammad Amir hasn’t been the AMIR he used to be in recent past. He has a below average record which is certainly not up to the standards we are use to expect from the Talented Mohammad Amir. Being Axed from the Test side already he has not been able to show his class with the bowl in ODI format as well. One Day Cricket has rather been a consistent struggle for the 27 year old Amir. As he has just bagged 33 wickets in 31 ODI’s he has played since his return back in year 2015. His Average is just 36.6 in ODI’s since return.

WHY AMIR IS NOT IN World CUP 2019 PAKISTAN TEAM ?

Everyone is asking Why Mohammad AMIR is not Playing?

The easiest and the most honest answer is his declining form. He has been a total disaster in Last two years especially after the Most Famous INDIA VS PAKISTAN ICC CHAMPIONS TROPHY FINAL. Since that wondrous match where his heroics won Pakistani Team a rare Win against India in an ICC cricket tournament, every stat is showing a miserable story of his declining form. His Bowling average is above 90.00 Yes above 90 and a shocking strike rate of 120.00. There have been no lack of opportunities its just his performance which is heading downhill ever since that Champions trophy match. All this is happening when young and promising players like Shaheen Shah Afridi and Mohammad Hasnain are emerging and knocking the doors of the selectors with their impressive performances in home series and in PSL-4.

CAN WE EXPECT MOHAMMAD AMIR’s RETURN IN World Cup 2019?

There is simply no doubt is Mohammad Amir’s Ability however its his continuously poor form that has made selectors to consider alternate options instead of Muhammad Amir. and Amir is Dropped from the world cup 2019 squad. But Wait there is still hope.

PAK vs ENG 2019 Series Last hope for Amir !

Yes Amir along with another not chosen young prospect ” Muhammad Asif” are still selected by the Pakistan Cricket Board Selection Committee headed by Inzimam-ul-Haq. There have been clear signals from the Selection board that if there is a considerable improvement in Amir’s poor bowling form in the upcoming series between Pakistan vs England then his selection is possible. He is set to have some matches before the ICC World cup 2019 in England and Wales where is has been lethal in the past. This PAK v ENG series just before the World Cup in the same conditions are one last opportunity for Amir to turn things around for him and make a wild card entry to the world cup squad.

Pakistan Team can select the final squad till 23rd April. Lets see if Amir can give us some magic though his performances in PAK vs ENG Series starting May 05- 2019.
