Indian cricket team captain and opener batsman Rohit Sharma has a very poor record against Pakistan in T20 International cricket. Rohit Sharma has made special preparations to face Pakistans bowling attack this time and obviously, he would like to score big against this team so that the team also benefits. If Rohit Sharma is able to get India off to a good start against Pakistan, then the task of defeating Pakistan will become easier for Team India.
Rohit Sharma will play against Pakistan for the first time in the T20 World Cup as a captain. The first match of this World Cup between India and Pakistan will be played in Melbourne where Rohit Sharma will look desperate to avenge the defeat of the last World Cup i.e. T20 World Cup 2021.
Bilateral series are not organized between India and Pakistan and IND vs PAK Match play only during the Asia Cup or ICC World Cup tournament. Rohit Sharma has also not got a chance to play many T20 matches against Pakistan, but in all the T20 matches he has played against this team so far, he has been disappointed on most of the occasions.
Looking at the performance of Rohit Sharma against Pakistan in T20, Rohit Sharma has played 10 T20 matches against Pakistan and has scored only 110 runs in his 9 innings at an average of 15.71. His best score against Pakistan is 30 not out and his strike rate is 127.27. Rohit Sharma has not been able to score a single half-century against Pakistan so far. Among the teams against which Rohit has played at least five innings, his record against Pakistan is the worst. Rohit Sharma has been out for a duck twice against Pakistan.
This time Rohit also has a chance to take revenge on Pakistan. Actually, he could not even open an account against Pakistan in the T20 World Cup last year. He was made lbw by Shaheen Afridi. India had lost to Pakistan for the first time in a World Cup. Rohit would like to improve on that performance and help the team win the first match in the T20 World Cup 2022.
