India vs Pakistan by Rahul
Honestly, is anyone going to doubt for one second that this is a pick I won't back that has the potential of landing quite easily. Shahid Afridi is an extremely talented cricketer who can do it all with the bat, bowl and field. And when it comes to the biggest stage of them all against the mother of all oppositions, he generally stands up to be counted for his team.
Shahid Afridi has played against India 66 times, with the last few occasions he has put on some strong matching winning performances. In the Asia Cup in 2014, he posted a 34* leading his team to victory; in the world cup semi finals in 2011; he bowled 10 solid overs, but didn't do much with the bat and in the Asia Cup of 2010; he scored 32 and took a wicket. With Saeed Ajmal not being a part of this World Cup, Pakistan will rely on Afridi to bowl a lot of offers, and with the Indian bowlers struggling recently to play spin, he could come into his own on an Adelaide track that will definitely offer him some decent turn and good bounce. He has taken 12 wickets in his last 7 ODI's and also chipped-in in the field with 5 catches in those 7 games.
With Jadeja potentially missing this game due to injury, this pick should definitely be backed for the Pakistani's as he is their IMPACT player if they want to win the mother of all games.
