New Delhi. The Pakistan team captained by Babar Azam is to face Canada in the T20 World Cup 2024 today. This match is a do or die for Pakistan. A slight mistake can spoil their plans of reaching the Super-8. After the defeat against America, Pakistan had to face defeat against India in the very next match. It would not be wrong to say that once again the Pakistan team is facing India today. We are saying this because not one or two but five players in the Canadian team are of Indian origin. Not only this, the captain of the team Saad Bin Zafar is of Pakistani origin. He is originally from Gujranwala, Punjab, Pakistan.

Navneet Dhaliwal is the opening batsman of the Canadian team. Born in Chandigarh, Dhaliwal scored a half-century in the match against USA in the T20 World Cup. He scored 61 runs in 44 balls with the help of six fours and three sixes. All-rounder Pargat Singh is originally from Ropar, Punjab. He bats at number-3 in the Canadian team. Along with batting well, Pargat also bowls off-spin.

If Pakistan wants to win this match, then it will have to make a strong strategy against the Pakistani captain and the five Indian-origin cricketers in the playing-11. Otherwise, Babar Azam and company's dream of winning the T20 World Cup will be shattered.
