Srinagar: Pakistan star wicketkeeper batter Mohammad Rizwan has termed India’s bowling attack as challenging and he is ready to face them.
Team India bowling attack has been boosted with the return of Jasprit Bumrah and have likes of Mohammad Siraj, Mohammad Shami, Shardul Thakur, Hardik Pandya, Kuldeep Yadav, Ravindra Jadeja in the attack.
“Our fast bowlers have played a crucial role in taking us to the No.1 spot. And the three fast bowlers we are talking about, they are not just going to pose difficulty for the Indian top-order but for every team. They are gifted bowlers. And if you look at our bench strength, that is also very good and that is why we have risen to the top,” Rizwan was quoted as saying.
“Their batters also haven’t faced our bowlers a lot. They lost early wickets but they put close to 270 on the board. Similarly, we will also have plans when their bowlers will come up against us”.
“India have a good bowling attack, some of the world’s best who will obviously challenge us. But as professionals, we should be ready with the answers,” Rizwan added.
While this will be India’s first Super Four encounter in the Asia Cup 2023, Pakistan will look forward to continuing their excellent form after beating Bangladesh by seven wickets on Wednesday.
