After playing a blockbuster match in the second game of Asia Cup 2022, India and Pakistan go against each other again in the Super Four stage of Asia Cup 2022. Let’s look at all the info about the highly anticipated match.
India were dealt a huge blow as Ravindra Jadeja was ruled out of the entirety of the Asia Cup 2022 with a knee injury. The left-handed all-rounder has been integral to India’s success in the recent past. Axar Patel has been named as his replacement but it would be interesting to see if he makes it into the playing XI. The rest of the team is fit and raring to go after a well-earned rest.
Pakistan, on the other hand, will be coming off after a thumping win against Hong Kong in their last match. The opener Mohammad Rizwan has done well in the two matches and leads the scoring charts with 121 runs. The bowlers have also recovered from their cramps in the first match and would pose a difficult challenge to Indian batters. Babar Azam’s form would be a point of concern for Pakistan but they would hope their number one batter comes back into runs.
India Probable XI: Rohit Sharma (c), KL Rahul, Virat Kohli, Suryakumar Yadav, Dinesh Karthik (wk), Hardik Pandya, Axar Patel, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Avesh Khan, Yuzvendra Chahal, Arshdeep Singh
Pakistan Probable XI: Babar Azam (c), Mohammad Rizwan (wk), Fakhar Zaman, Iftikhar Ahmed, Khushdil Shah, Asif Ali, Shadab Khan, Mohammad Nawaz, Naseem Shah, Haris Rauf, Shahnawaz Dahani
India: Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Hardik Pandya, Virat Kohli
Pakistan: Mohammad Rizwan, Naseem Shah, Mohammad Nawaz
Played – 10, IND Won – 8, PAK Won – 2
