T20 World Cup: Sanjay Manjrekar

Prior to the start of the T20 World Cup in India, former Indian cricketer and commentator Sanjay Manjrekar shared his eleventh game for Virat Kohli's team on Koo's social media platform. The Indian team will face Pakistan in a Super 12 game at Dubai International Stadium on Sunday, hoping to win. Manjrekar chose Kolkata Knight Riders spinner Varun Chakravarthy over veteran Ravichandran Ashwin.

The 56-year-old also chose Shardul Thakur over Bhuvneshwar Kumar and there was no place for Ishan Kishan on his list. In addition to Chakaravarthy and Shardul, Manjrekar chose Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli, KL Rahul, Suryakumar Yadav, Hardik Pandya, Rishabh Pant, Ravindra Jadeja, Mohammed Shami and Jasprit Bumrah.

"Rohit, Virat Rahul, Surya Hardik Pant Jadeja Shardul Shami Bumrah Varun. My India playing XI for tonight. #IndvPak #T20WORLDCUP", Manjrekar posted. Led by Kohli, India reached the round of 16 and is aiming for its second T20 World Cup title after winning the first edition in 2007.

India will gain confidence in its opener throughout history as it has not yet lost a World Cup game to Pakistan. You have beaten Pakistan seven out of seven times in ODI World Cup games and five out of five times in T20 World Cup games. One of India's most popular wins in the T20 format against Pakistan was the final of the first edition of the tournament in 2007, when MS Dhoni's team won by five points.
