One of the greatest rivalries in the history of cricket will be witnessed again on the 27th of August as India vs Pakistan is all set for this Saturday on the 27th of August
This year, the Asia Cup is being held in the UAE with the best five Asian teams participating. However, the eyes are on the 2nd day of the tournament as two of South Asia’s cricketing giants face off in the Dubai International Stadium.
The India vs Pakistan match in the Asia Cup 2022 will be a highly anticipated affair. The encounters between these two teams have a history of always producing nail-biting contests. This time around, the stakes will be even higher as both teams want to begin their journey to be crowned the Asian Champion with a win.
Both teams have strong batting and bowling lineups and it is difficult to predict who will come out on top. However, India will start as favorites due to their recent success against Pakistan in big games. Repeated injury concerns in the camp also does not help Pakistan lessen their worry. Star player Shaheen Afridi was already ruled out of the tournament and now, another pacer, Mohammad Wasim, is also doubtful to play after suffering a possible back injury in practice session.
Team India, on the contrary, has their squad intact with little to no injury concerns except Jasprit Bumrah. Led by Rohit Sharma, India is determined to defend their Asia Cup title. Virat Kohli has also returned to the squad following his brief hiatus.
The Asia Cup 2022 will be a great opportunity for both teams to show their dominance in the region. It is sure to be a thrilling clash of long-time rivals and one that no cricket fan will want to miss.
