Rahul, whose first T20I in 2022 was against Pakistan the other night, would want to come out all guns blazing and may take this opportunity to try an alternate batting approach at the onset, compared to what has been his style at the IPL.

Dubai Cricket Stadium’s pitch is not ideal for tall scores. Its boundaries are very short, which the batsman takes full advantage of but chasing seems to be an excellent option on this wicket.
