In a country where how you bowl swing and seam, and how you counter it, determines a large part of the team’s fortunes, the Meerut-born seamer would’ve been the perfect arsenal to carry along. Yet he is not in the squad. Right now, Bhuvneshwar is not injured, as has been the case often in his career, especially over the last four years.

India-Pakistan Combined T20I XI Of Current Players

The two Asian giants only play against each other in ICC events or multi-team events like the Asia Cup. Though both teams have played plenty of Tests and One-Day Internationals against each other, the same can’t be said about the shortest format of the game. Both teams have met 8 times in T20I cricket, with India winning 7 of them, including the most recent one in 2016. While India are currently second in the T20I rankings, Pakistan are fourth. Nevertheless, players from both India and Pakistan continue being part of fantasy teams of fans on both sides of the border. And, with the T20I World Cup scheduled to be held later this year in India, both teams could cross path more than once. Ahead of the marquee event, we’ve curated a list of the combined T20I of current players.
