ABU DHABI, September 4 – India-Pakistan battle is back in cricket after a gap of six days for the benefit of the Asia Cup. Being in the same group, the two teams met in Dubai on August 28. They meet again as both the teams have secured the Super Four. Cricket has benefited from this. India-Pakistan does not participate in bilateral series due to political reasons. As a result, they do not face each other except in tournaments like World Cup, Asia Cup.

India won the group stage match against Pakistan in Dubai. Many saw that match as India’s revenge. Avenging the loss in the T20 World Cup. If that is the case, now it is Pakistan’s turn to take revenge for the loss in the group stage. However, the way Pakistan beat Hong Kong in the last match of the group (155 runs all out by 38 runs) suggests that the task will not be easy for India.

All-rounder Ravindra Jadeja played an important role in the last match against Pakistan. He scored 52 runs for the fifth wicket in partnership with Hardik Pandya. When Jadeja returned, 7 runs were needed from five balls to win. Jadeja has been ruled out due to a knee injury. Akshar Patel has joined the team in his place. However, it is not certain whether Akshar will play in India’s XI for this match or not.
There are injury problems in the Pakistan camp as well. Pacer Shahnewaz Dahani dropped from the team with an injury. The pacer will not play against India due to a side strain injury. It is said that Dahani will be observed for 48-72 hours for now. At this time his injury will be scanned. Only then will it be known when this pace bowler will be able to return to the XI again.

Wicket keeper batsman Rishabh Pant was in the group match against Pakistan. Although he was in the team against Hong Kong, he did not get a chance to bat. Virat Kohli returned to form with a half-century in that match (59*). Suryakumar Yadav scored an unbeaten 68 off 26 balls. It is difficult to say in advance whether Panth will be in the team against Pakistan or not. Hardik Pandya performed brilliantly in the first match of the group stage. He was rested against Hong Kong. Hardik will definitely return today. It will be known only after the announcement of whether Panther will get a chance in Jadeja’s place.

Indian pacers Aves Khan and Arshdeep Singh did not bowl well against Hong Kong. Arshdeep scored 44 runs in 4 overs and Aves 53 runs in 4 overs. So India may not risk playing both of them in today’s match.

Pakistan’s Rizwan Khan scored runs in both matches. But Babar Azam failed in both matches (9 and 10). For the team to get off to a good start, the Pakistan captain must return to form. However, Fakhar and Khushdil also got runs against Hong Kong. So Pakistan can rest easy with batting. Pakistani pacer Shaheen Shah Afridi is not in the Asia Cup team due to injury, this time Dahani is injured. Nasim Shah, Haris Rauf will lead the pace bowling in today’s match against India. Hasan Ali can return.
