Pakistan’s T20 skipper, Shahid Afridi showed confidence on his pace attack before the biggest clash of the Asia Cup, Pakistan against India. He believes that his fast bowlers are very much capable of destroying Indian batting lineup. Pakistani fast bowlers will look to pack up the top order of the Indian batting lineup in the first six overs.

Afridi said in the pre-match press conference, “Pace bowlers are the main form of attack in these conditions. We have got four pacers and they are just cricketers who are considered to be wicket-taking. Our fast bowlers will try to utilize the opening six overs by removing their batsmen as that is considered to be their strength”.

Afridi accepted the fact that Indian batsmen are very much capable of facing spinners. Shahid Afridi himself along with the new spinning sensation, Mohammad Nawaz will try to spin out Indian batters in the game.

As per the Pakistani captain, “Indian batsmen usually play spinners very well and they have in form players in their squad as they have come here playing some good cricket. I think apart from me there is Mohammad Nawaz who performed really well in the domestic cricket as well as in the PSL. The fast bowlers are also in good shape whether it is Amir, Wahab or Irfan”.

Afridi admits that India has a solid batting lineup, “Indian batsmen usually play spinners very well and they have in form players in their squad as they have come here playing some good cricket. I think apart from me there is Mohammad Nawaz who performed really well in the domestic cricket as well as in the PSL. The fast bowlers are also in good shape whether it is Amir, Wahab or Irfan”.

“I know their batting is strong but we also have a formidable bowling attack. I hope the result will be good for us”.

The man, who is known as Boom Boom in the cricketing world has coined tomorrow’s game as a battle between Pakistani bowlers vs Indian batsmen.

Despite of the fact that Shahid Afridi snatched the victory from Indian jaws in the last Asia Cup by launching two consecutive towering sixes off Ashwin in the last over of the innings, he calls bowling as his main strength.
Afridi said, “My main strength is my bowling but where I bat I can also contribute for the team and that is important. Whether it is 20 or 30 runs but it is important”.

The match is scheduled to start at 6:30 PM PST. There is too much excitement in the atmosphere and the contest is anticipated to be a thrilling one.
