Pakistan has been always a side that boasts of an excellent fast bowling unit and the left arm seamers have been abundant in the country. The only weak area India has had is the lack of left-arm seamers in the lineup for a long time now and hence they wouldn’t have faced quality left-arm seamers. Despite, India having Lukman Meriwala as a net bowler, it would be a different ball game in the crease.

Rohit Sharma and KL Rahul have had weaknesses against the incoming deliveries and Shaheen Shah Afridi likes to bring it back into the right-handers generally. Imad Wasim has been excellent with the new ball while they have the variety in Hasan Ali and Haris Rauf as the second and third seamer. Shadab Khan can be effective with his leg spinners while Mohammad Hafeez can be a vital spin option. Overall, Pakistan has covered all the bases in the bowling department.
