bowling weak sideThe Indian team, which last traveled to the final, had reached New Zealand a month ago and is well aware of the conditions here. Although the Indian batsmen have done well recently but the bowling has not been as good as expected. Indian batsmen have scored over 250 in five of the last seven matches including two practice matches, which is a good sign for the team. But the bowlers did not work as India lost the series 1-4 to New Zealand. He could not defend a score of more than 270 runs in two matches. In such a situation, the bowlers will have to improve their performance. As far as Pakistan is concerned, it has participated in the World Cup four times, out of which three times it was at the bottom and once in the Super Six in 2009. The Bismah Maroof-led side, however, will be confident with wins over New Zealand and Bangladesh in the practice matches.
