Shoaib Akhtar, a legend of Pakistan’s pace, claims that Rohit Sharma subconsciously believes he cannot play Shaheen Afridi

<p>Due to rain, India’s first match of the 2023 Asia Cup versus Pakistan did not end in a victory, but it did include some exciting comebacks from both sides.</p>
<p>Shaheen Afridi struck first as he cheaply dumped Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli. Then Haris Rauf dealt a few blows of his own, leaving India reeling.<img decoding=”async” class=”alignnone wp-image-165408″ src=”https://www.theindiaprint.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/09/theindiaprint.com-how-to-get-to-the-delhi-airport-and-metro-stations-during-the-g20-this-app-is-reco.png” alt=”theindiaprint.com how to get to the delhi airport and metro stations during the g20 this app is reco” width=”1462″ height=”822″ srcset=”https://www.theindiaprint.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/09/theindiaprint.com-how-to-get-to-the-delhi-airport-and-metro-stations-during-the-g20-this-app-is-reco.png 690w, https://www.theindiaprint.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/09/theindiaprint.com-how-to-get-to-the-delhi-airport-and-metro-stations-during-the-g20-this-app-is-reco-390×220.png 390w, https://www.theindiaprint.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/09/theindiaprint.com-how-to-get-to-the-delhi-airport-and-metro-stations-during-the-g20-this-app-is-reco-150×84.png 150w” sizes=”(max-width: 1462px) 100vw, 1462px” title=”Shoaib Akhtar, a legend of Pakistan's pace, claims that Rohit Sharma subconsciously believes he cannot play Shaheen Afridi 3″></p>
<p>Then, with each player scoring a half-century, Ishan Kishan and Hardik Pandya put together a century stand to take the team to victory. Before Pakistan fought back and held them to 266 in 48.5 overs, there was a moment when it seemed like India may finish up with a total of 300 or more.</p>
<p>For the way he got rid of Rohit, Afridi received accolades.</p>
<p>The left-arm bowler had taken two pitches away from the India skipper before bringing in the third, and it was a well-timed dismissal as the ball snuck between Rohit’s bat and pad and crashed against the stumps.</p>
<p>Rohit was defeated by the youthful bowler for the second time in the last three games.</p>
<p>Shoaib Akhtar, a legendary fast bowler for Pakistan, believes that Rohit’s attitude is the problem and said that the India batting sensation unconsciously believes he cannot handle Afridi.</p>
<p>“It seems like Rohit Sharma is playing with a body double. He feels in his subconscious that he can’t play Shaheen Afridi. The removal of Afridi is a really poor visual for him, Akhtar commented on Star Sports.</p>
<p>Indian cricketers, according to Harbhajan Singh, are always under pressure from public expectations.</p>
<p>“Indian cricket players experience tremendous crowd pressure, particularly when they face Pakistan. When England lost to Australia in the ODI World Cup final in 2003, signs were held up here. You’ll need security unrelated to us if you lose. They are players, but any team may triumph on any given day, I beg those individuals, he remarked.</p>
