Again, the India-Pakistan rivalry is building on the field

After the format of this year’s Asia Cup was created, there was a possibility of seeing India-Pakistan duel at least twice. Finally, on Sunday (September 4), these two arch-rivals are fighting in the field. The high-voltage match between the two teams will be held at the Dubai International Stadium at 8 PM Bangladesh time.

After visiting Hong Kong in Group A with India and Pakistan, the possibility of the two superpowers of the subcontinent facing off more than once appeared strongly. The four teams that will go to the Super Four from the two groups will play one match each and the best two teams will play in the final of the Asia Cup. After knowing such rules, cricket lovers were hoping to watch multiple duels between India and Pakistan. Besides, no one thought that Hong Kong would go to the Super Four after losing India or Pakistan. At last, the hopes of cricket lovers have come true.

These two cricket superpowers of the subcontinent, India-Pakistan have reached the Super Four. These two eternal rivals will play the second match in this tournament among themselves. There is a possibility that India-Pakistan will face each other in the Asia Cup final as well.

Meanwhile, Rohit Sharma’s India won a thrilling encounter by beating Pakistan by 5 wickets in their first appearance of the group stage. Now it is the turn of Babar-Rizwan to take revenge for that loss. They also have a great opportunity ahead of them. Ravindra Jadeja, one of the architects of India’s victory in the first match, has been ruled out of the Asia Cup with a knee injury, the loss of one of the team’s mainstays has weakened India’s strength to some extent.

Besides, in the last match of the group stage, Babar Azam’s team confirmed the Super Four by blowing away Hong Kong in both the batting-bowling categories and winning by a huge margin of 155 runs. Despite losing to India in the first match, the Pakistani cricketers should regain their confidence with the huge victory that secured the Super Four in the next match.

Cricket lovers will now be looking at whether Babar Azam’s team can turn around in Maharan on Sunday or Rohit Sharma’s team will have the last laugh like in the first match.
