The game is a part of the FIBA Asia Cup 2021 Qualifiers. Here, the Palestinian men are going to take on India as a part of the Group H battle in Jeddah, which is in Saudi Arabia. More about PAL vs IND Dream 11 will be given below.
Palestine can pose a challenge to India but they are not as tough inside and physical as Saudi Arabia except for Sani Sakakini who is going to be a nightmare to defend for the Indian Forwards. India has problems with their shot selection at times and when you shoot below 33% and turn it over 15+ times then the chances of winning are of course going to diminish. Palestine has some players who can be all-around while India doesn’t have too many versatile players, however, ironically, they shot better from three-point line than inside so if their inside players can figure it out, perhaps they can piece together more of a strong showing. India would have to come right out of the gates with this and this is going to be an important game for their chances to qualify for the main 2021 Asia Cup challenge.
