Team Pakistan after suffering two back-to-back losses against India and Zimbabwe respectively, will now take on the Netherlands in their third group stage encounter of the T20 World Cup 2022 to be played on October 30 (Sunday).
The Netherlands team has also not been able to impress in the Super 12s as yet. In the last match, they had to face a big defeat against India by 56 runs. They will be hoping to redeem themselves in the upcoming match against the Men in Green.
The match will be played at the Optus Stadium, Perth
Speaking about the weather conditions in Perth, the rain is not a threat in Perth and there is a high chance that there will be a full 20-over game on display for the fans to enjoy. There is only a 20 percent chance of precipitation which can be easily ignored.
The wicket is expected to provide true bounce to the bowlers and the batters might need to spend some time in the middle before playing their shots. The skipper winning the toss might want to have a bowl first and restrict the opponent team to a low score before chasing it down.
Pakistan is in a horrible situation in the ongoing T20 World Cup as they are virtually out of the competition. Pakistan's skipper Babar Azam has not been able to get going with the bat and there will be certainly some pressure on him to perform well against the Dutch side.
Meanwhile, former Pakistan pacer and veteran Wasim Akram recently said that Babar only plays for himself and he is insecure. Akram also said that a captain should be ready to sacrifice his batting place for the benefit of the team.
“All of these things begin at the top. And at the top is your captain. If your captain plays for himself and is insecure. If your captain scores run and let other batters play at his position, you get to know that your captain is ready to sacrifice himself for you, this Babar has to learn,” said Wasim Akram.
