IND vs PAK Dream11 Match Preview
It’s the biggest rivalry in cricket history. India will take on Pakistan in the 2nd match of Asia Cup 2022 at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium.
India will look to settle the score from the last T20 World Cup. There are many new faces in the Indian line-up alongside the greats of the game like Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma. The Indian batting unit has players like Suryakumar Yadav, Rishabh Pant, KL Rahul, Hardik Panya, and Ravindra Jadeja apart from Virat and Rohit. All of these players are match winners and will look to perform well in this game. India will miss Jasprit Bumrah but the likes of Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Yuzvendra Chahal, Arshdeep Singh, Hardik Pandya, etc have been in good form as a bowling unit. The pace unit is a bit inexperienced with the likes of Arshdeep Singh and Avesh Khan. Arshdeep has been exceptional and will look to bowl good lines and lengths in this all-important game. The Indian team has been in good form and will look to start off their campaign with a win.Also Read: Asia Cup 2022 Live Streaming Details: When and Where to Watch Asia Cup 2022 LIVE on TV in India, Pakistan and Bangladesh, Schedule, Fixtures, Teams, Squads, Venues and All you need to know
Pakistan, meanwhile, has many quality players in their line-up as well. Just like India, they are also without their premium pace bowler in Shaheen Afridi. The onus of scoring the majority of the runs will be on the shoulders of the top order of Babar Azam, Mohammad Rizwan, and Fakhar Zaman. Their middle order is yet to be tested properly but the likes of Iftikhar Ahmed, Khusdhil Shah, Asif Ali, and Shadab Khan are good players and will look to do well with the bat. Their pace attack is not that strong without Shaheen Afridi and Mohammad Wasim Jr also got ruled out due to injury. Hasan Ali hasn’t been in that good form. Haris Rauf will lead the pace unit alongside Naseem Shah who is still inexperienced. The spin attack looks good with Shadab Khan, Khushdil Shah, and Mohammad Nawaz. Pakistan overall has a good team and will look to win this game against their arch-rivals.
