Power Pick Player

Our power pick for today’s match between India and Pakistan is Mohammad Amir.

In his last 5 matches against India in ODIs, Amir has taken 15 wickets at an average of 13.5, making him a must-have player in both the leagues.

Our Advice:

Rohit faces difficulties against left-arm seamers at the start of his innings. Thus, Mohammad Amir could cause trouble to Rohit in today’s match with the new ball.

Pick KL Rahul over Rohit Sharma, as he is more comfortable playing new balls of left-arm pacers.

Our Match Prediction:

India is expected to win today’s encounter against Pakistan without having much trouble.
