Aakash Chopra cautions that this Pakistani pacer, and not Shaheen, might cause problems for India.

A former opener for India who is now considered an industry expert, Aakash Chopra, recently said in Srinagar that the batters for Team India should be concerned about Pakistan’s pace attack despite the presence of Shaheen Afridi.

On October 23rd, a match for the Twenty20 World Cup 2022 will take place between India and Pakistan at the MCG.

Everyone is in awe of the attach Pakistan has, especially with Pakistan’s speed attack being boosted by players like as Shaheen Afridi, Haris Rauf, and Naseem Shah. On the other hand, Shaheen Afridi has been gaining a significant amount of attention as a result of his recovery from an injury.

Aakash Chopra, who played cricket for India in the past, believes that Rauf would pose a greater danger to India than Shaheen will in the cricket match that will take place between India and Pakistan on Sunday. The older man, who is 45 years old, has chimed in on the present potential of the two and expressed the opinion that Shaheen has not yet reached his full potential.

“But I think the bowler we should watch out for on Sunday is Shaheen. Isn’t that right? That would be Haris Rauf. Afridi is almost at the peak of his abilities, but he hasn’t quite arrived there yet… … it is quite improbable that it will be by the 23rd. Aakash Chopra said in a tweet that Rauf would bowl the more difficult overs and that he has the capacity to make a difference.

The former Indian hitter lauded Shaheen’s in-swinging yorker for its role in the dismissal of Afghanistan’s first batsman during a warm-up match earlier today.

“Full…swinging…fast. Shaheen Afridi is on the verge of achieving his full potential. On Twitter, Chopra said that Gurbaz’s toe was in agreement with her statement.

At the Twenty20 World Cup, Shaheen participated in two warm-up games against England and Afghanistan. Against England, he had bowling stats of 0/7 (2 overs) and 1/29 (four overs), respectively.

During this time, Rauf bowled well against Afghanistan and was able to take two wickets. In the home series that Pakistan played against England in September, Rauf took the most wickets of anybody.

When Shaheen faced India for the last time in the Twenty20 World Cup in 2021, he quickly worked his way through the top order, removing Rohit Sharma, KL Rahul, and Virat Kohli in quick succession.
