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 –and believe me it happens far too often –they can be even worse than Kenyans team that doesn’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 Pakistan’s super league with India’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.

Viewers in India can sit back, try and relax, instead of biting their nails, and watch the match live on Star Sports 1, Star Sports 3, Star Sports HD3 and Star Sports HD1. Hotstar and Starsports online will also provide the online live streaming options if your better half forces you out of the house on Saturday evening.
