Not Rohit Sharma or Virat Kohli; Aaqib Javed Reckons Hardik Pandya Would Make Difference During India-Pakistan Game

New Delhi: In a little less than two weeks, India and Pakistan will clash in one of the most-anticipated matches of the year in the Asia Cup in Dubai. Ahead of the match, the buzz is palpable among fans and ex cricketers. While a lot of predictions are being made ahead of the game, ex-Pakistan pacer Aaqib Javed named the player he feels will make the difference. It is surprising that he did not pick Babar Azam or Rohit Sharma – he picked Hardik Pandya as the player who could make the difference.Also Read – Shakib Al Hasan Named Bangladesh Captain Till 2022 T20 World Cup; Asia Cup Squad Announced

“The difference between the two teams lies in their batting. India’s batting is still more experienced. If a batter like Rohit Sharma clicks, he can single-handedly win the match for India. Similarly with Fakhar Zaman. If he plays with control, he can win the match for Pakistan. But the middle-order line-up of India and Pakistan, that’s the difference. Also their all-rounder, that makes a difference. Because Pakistan does not have a Hardik Pandya like all-rounder,” he said on Paktv.tv.
