- Varun, who shone in the IPL, lost to Pakistan
- Varun conceded 33 runs in 4 overs against Pakistan
- Pakistan won by 10 wickets against India
Dubai: Varun Chakraborty has been touted as India’s all-time leading scorer against Pakistan. The player was expected to repeat his brilliant performance in the IPL at the T20 World Cup. However, Varun failed to impress in the first match against Pakistan. If Varun’s performance in the next matches recedes, it will be a setback for India.
Former Pakistani batsman Salman Bhatt has reacted to Varun’s bowling after Pakistan’s win over India by 10 points. Bhatt said that Varun was just an ordinary bowler and nothing unusual and that those bowlers could be seen even on the streets of Pakistan. Varun was unable to repeat the game he played for Kolkata Knight Riders in the World Cup.

The general assessment is that Varun is a bowler who is not easily caught by batters. But Bhatt pointed out that Varun was a poor quality bowler when playing a country like Pakistan. Varun will not be the only foreign player to play in the IPL. Previously, Ajantha Mendis had ruled against them. He later said that he would not play Pakistan.
Identifying the ball won’t be easy for those who have never played finger spinners before. However, those who play regularly can easily take on such bowlers. If you look at the bowler’s hands, you can see where the ball is going. “When playing Pakistan, it makes sense to play with the best spinners,” Bhatt said. Varun Chakraborty scored 33 runs in 4 overs against Pakistan.
