India’s top order woes against a left-arm seamer continued during their Asia Cup 2023 clash against Pakistan on Saturday, September 02 at Pallekele International Cricket Stadium, Pallekele. The Indian top-order was brought down to their knees as Shaheen Afridi, Naseem Shah and Haris Rauf hunted in packs to leave them reeling at 64/4 after 14.1 overs.
“I don’t think there’s any huge concern. You look at their records. Virat has scored more than 11000 runs, Rohit has scored more than 9000 runs, and Shubman Gill has shown shades of what he is capable of too. If even after big players like Virat and Rohit fail, we have a responsible No.5 and No.6 who can take us to 260-odd, we don’t need to worry. These things happen in cricket, there will be days where the bowlers are too good,” Gavaskar told Sports Tak.
