RIVALRY #2 – HARDIK vs HASSAN
They will meet after 2 straight years in the same country where they met last. The last time they met, the world witnessed magic and Pakistan victory after beating India in the finals of the Champions Trophy 2017.
The great batsman vs the great bowler – what to expect when two great players of the two great cricketing sides meet. Hassan will surely hold the edge as Pakistan are playing an ODI – Series against England in England in the lead up t the WC but Hardik will not be very familiarized with the pitch and ground conditions but will surely have more experience of facing bowlers due to the IPL where he showed some excellent batting skills.
Hardik will favor Hassan’s balls as he is a medium – fast bowler but Hassan’s balls are not very easy to play especially when Hassan will be more familiar to the conditions. Hardik will have to be more careful while he plays as he will be an essential middle – order batsman for India and if he gets out trying to attack Hassan then that may prove very costly for Hardik.
Hardik will also be a very vital bowler for his team when they will face Pakistan or any other team, It will be very interesting.
