He has also given his argument for that. He has said that Fakhar Zaman should be given the responsibility to open the batting. Fakhar Zaman bats differently. He also said that Pakistan’s middle order can be strengthened after separating both the batsmen. Earlier, thanks to these batsmen, Pakistan teams used to score at least 160 runs. But this time it didn’t happen. The biggest reason for that was that Mohammad Rizwan and Babar Azam were complete flops. Hardik Pandya’s all-round performance in pressured conditions helped India beat arch-rivals Pakistan by five wickets in their first match of the Asia Cup. Hardik proved his worth in the first bowling and took three wickets for 25 runs in four overs, on the basis of which India reduced Pakistan to 147 runs in 19.5 overs.

In the 19th over, bowled by Haris Rauf, Pandya’s three fours turned the tide of the match. India needed six runs in the last three balls and Hardik smashed left-arm spinner Mohammad Nawaz for a six with two balls to spare. Earlier, India’s top batsmen disappointed. KL Rahul could not even open the account while captain Rohit Sharma was dismissed after scoring 12 runs in 18 balls. Virat Kohli scored 35 runs in 34 balls, but while moving towards the big innings, he was dismissed after playing an irresponsible shot. Naseem Shah, making his debut for Pakistan, worried the Indian batsmen a lot.
