INDIA VS PAKISTAN ASIA CUP: INDIA AIM TO EXTEND UNBEATEN RUN, REDEMPTION ON PAKISTAN’S AGENDA
India and Pakistan will cross swords for the second time in Asia Cup 2022 on Sunday, September 4, at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium. This will be the first fixture of the ‘Super Four’ stage for both teams.
India have had a flawless run so far in this competition, and are coming into this stage as the Group A toppers. In their opening encounter, which happened to be against Pakistan, Rohit Sharma’s team secured a five-wicket win, courtesy of Hardik Pandya’s all-round brilliance.
In the next match against Hong Kong, a scintillating knock from Suryakumar Yadav and then an impressive collective bowling performance helped India secure a 40-run victory.
As for Pakistan, while the start was not ideal, they were on top of their game in the do-or-die fixture against Hong Kong. Batting first, Mohammad Rizwan’s unbeaten 78-run knock propelled them to a big score of 193. Babar Azam’s bowlers then showcased their brilliance by bowling out Hong Kong for only 38 runs, with Shadab Khan picking four of those ten wickets.
In terms of squad composition, India will dearly miss all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja, who has been ruled out with a knee injury. Pakistani pacer Naseem Shah, who sustained an injury in the first match against the men in blue, regained fitness before the Hong Kong clash and is looking in fine rhythm.
