Dubai, September 4: India vs Pakistan in the second match of the Asia Cup Super Four in Dubai today, Sunday. In the first match of the group league last Sunday, India defeated Pakistan in a close match. Hardik Pandya was the hero in India’s victory. Both teams then defeated Hong Kong to advance to the Super Four stage. Now Team India is going against Pakistan in their first Super Four match in the fight to reach the final.
India-Pakistan both camps are hit by injuries before going down to the finals of the Asia Cup Super Four. Ravindra Jadeja has been ruled out of the Asia Cup and even the upcoming T20 World Cup due to a knee injury. India’s team combination remains to be seen as Jadeja, who batted brilliantly against Pakistan in the group match last Sunday, was ruled out. After Jadeja, pacer Abesh Khan’s injury is also feared. Today, there is little chance of a game of passion in Dubai on Sunday.
Instead of Obsession, Deepak Chahar can be seen playing. Many people think that Ravichandran Ashwin can be played in place of Abesh to attack Pakistan with spin spell. Also, spinner all-rounder Akshar Patel is almost certain to replace Jadeja in the starting XI.
