The second semi-final match of the ICC T20 World Cup 2021 is to be played between Pakistan and Australia from today ie Thursday at 7 pm. However, before this important match, a bad news related to the Pakistan team is coming out. It is being told that two players of Pakistan team are not fully fit. These are the players who have proved to be match winners for the team in this mega event.
Actually, Pakistan team opener Mohammad Rizwan and all-rounder Shoaib Malik are not fully fit at this time. Before the semi-final match against Australia, these two players have been seen complaining of cold and fever and that is the reason why they are looking suspicious to play in the second semi-final match. If these players do not play in this knockout match against Australia, then it is a big blow for Pakistan.
Wicket-keeper batsmen Mohammad Rizwan and Shoaib Malik have emerged as match winners for the Pakistan team in this T20 World Cup. Both are in strong form. Both the players have contributed to the team with the bat and if these players are not fit and are unable to play the match before a big match like semi-final, the team’s combination may deteriorate and the team will be forced to go with the new combination.
Mohammad Rizwan is also in excellent form as an opener along with captain Babar Azam, but he has cold and fever. Because of this he did not come to practice on Wednesday. Shoaib Malik, who played a good innings in the last match, also has fever. On his playing, the team management will take a decision before the match. If these two don’t play, then Pakistan can be in trouble. In such a situation, former captain Sarfaraz Ahmed and Haider Ali can get a chance in place of Rizwan.
