Every team struggles against a particular player who becomes a headache for them and on often occasions spoils the party for them.

For instance Travis Head is a boogeyman for India who cost them WTC 2023 and CWC 2023, likewise Ben Stokes is a troublemaker for the Aussies as he alone keeps clinging till then to make Australia suffer. So there are numerous other examples too, which boogeyman do you like the most or would like to mention?

David Warner/Kohli - Pakistan.

Sehwag v pakistan is the ultimate. Any form of the game, he destroyed them wayy too longg year after year. His sr in tests itself is close to 100 @91 avg. thats carnage if there ever was one.
 
Yes, I shiver with fear whenever these 2 legends face us
You better believe it. The celebration of Litton's wicket was very evident in the recent game. Indians hardly celebrated any other wicket thereafter
 
Travis head vs India he made them cry.

Zimbabar vs Zimbabwe. They are scared of his shadow.

Rizwan against most C teams.
 
Well Nobody owned India like Imran Khan, you can also check his stats and wins ratio as captain or player
In Tests, In major tournaments 1985 and 1992 India got better of him as a unit.
If tests is considered Sehwag was ruthless against PCT
 
Against India -

Glenn Mcgrath
Jayasuriya
Younis Khan
Head
Michael Clarke
Graeme Smith
Flower
 
Babar is Zimbabar in ODIs only.

Babar averages 1 (!) in Tests and 38 at SR of 124 in T20s vs Zimbabwe which isn't much to shout about.
 
For some reason despite his record against us ( decent nothing exceptional) I used to always get a sinking feeling when Suresh Raina would come to bat for India.

It's not really based on any logic maybe it's because of their batting depth Vs ours at the time. A lot of hard work could be done by the bowlers and we still had Raina to contend with.

Again this is not stats or evidence based just my own personal opinion when we played India
 
Ibrahim Zadran - Pakistan

Not only has he humiliated them on the field, but he has also triggered them with his after-match comments.

He is the clutches batsman in IPL history above Kohli, Rohit, ABDV, Warner etc. Highest runs play offs. highest mom in playoffs. Even in wc2011 he was the reason India won against Australia in QF. Also his finish against Pakistan Semi final helped India achieve decent total
 
Travis Head is becoming a mega boogeyman for India.

Maxwell for Afghanistan

Pandya for Pakistan from what I have seen. More than Kohli, Rohit or Bumrah.

People don't see Pandya as threat although he is a much bigger threat than Kohli in recent times
 
Danish kanaria Vs BD, man we made kanaria look like share warne on steroids
 
Kohli vs Pakiatan
Sehwag vs Pakistan ( this guy used to turn Wasim Akram, Waqar Younis & Shoaib Akhtar into hopeless shadows of themselves lol)

Ricky Pointing vs India
 
Shahid Afridi vs India
Naseem Shah vs Afghanistan
Lol, meanwhile Afridi's bowling average vs India in ODIs and T20s is 60 and 52 respectively. His batting stats against India in t20s is even worse 😂😂 average of 7 with strike rate of 96..
Bogie team 😂😂

We Indians don't even care to remember those blind hits in some random match. We have some more special things to remember. Only Pakistani fans can remember random matches a decade ago 😂😂 you guys still celebrate champions trophy win, shows your mentality. We Indians never bigmouth about any of our clinical victories in world cups or asia cups.
 
In recent times,

India - Travis Head
Australia - Rishabh Pant
Pakistan - Virat Kohli
England - Graeme Smith
South Africa - ICC World Tournaments
New Zealand - Australia
 
South Africa - Kevin Pietersen.

India - Saeed Anwar.

England - Muralitharan.

Pakistan - Dale Steyn.

What did Pietersen do to South Africa? SA won 2008 and 2012 series back to back in England.
 
Pant for australia. He is a australia killer abuser

Head for australia vs india recently

Pandya for Pakistan. He kills Pakistan mostly

Recently bumrah for Pakistan too.

Zimbabar for nepal
