Pakistani batsmen are among the best in the world. But it is only on days when they are able to keep their sanity intact. On other days when they tend to lose sanity â€“and believe me it happens far too often â€“they can be even worse than Kenyans team that doesnâ€™t get opportunity to play against top teams.
Pakistani players have just come out from one of the best tournaments in the same format, Pakistan Super League (PSL). Merely a few days ago, Pakistani captain Misbah compared Pakistanâ€™s super league with Indiaâ€™s Premier League (IPL).
To be true, Pakistani Super League was a low scoring tournament. This means that Pakistani batsmen, or most of them were not able to play long inning, with the exception of Sharjeel who scored a hundred and a few others.
No Pakistani batsman was able to score today against Indian bowlers, most of whom are not in the same league as Pakistani top of the line bowlers. India, despite lacking bowlers like Pakistan, compensates with its exceptional fielding and then with impressive batting line up.
Today Sarfaraz has been the top scorer with individual score of 25 runs off 28 balls. No other batsman could reach 20 run mark except him. On the other hand Indian bowlers and fielders came out with exceptional performance.
