India vs Pakistan, IND Playing 11 vs PAK (Predicted), Asia Cup 2022, Super 4, Match 2 (A1 vs A2). India won both their matches against Pakistan and Hong Kong to qualify for the Super-4s. Pakistan bundled out Hong Kong for 38 runs to win by 155 runs. Pakistan spinners have claimed 10 of their 15 wickets so far while Indian seamers have claimed 13 of their 14 wickets so far.
Asia Cup is heating up with top-2 teams from each group making the cut to the Super-4. India and Pakistan is the most sought-after games in the cricket arena and their political tension and absence of bilateral ties spices up their every meeting in the multi-nation tournaments. India won the opening encounter against Pakistan in a thrilling fashion and went on to win against Hong Kong convincingly. Pakistan after their loss against India gave a drubbing to Hong Kong to win the must-win encounter.
Indian openers Rohit Sharma and KL Rahul are yet to make a big contribution in this series. Virat Kohli has been good with scores of 35 & 59 in the 2 matches played so far. The middle order duo of Suryakumar Yadav and Hardik Pandya were the standout players in the 2 matches played so far.
Ravichandran Ashwin and Deepak Hooda might play in the starting XI in place of injured spin all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja and too-expensive pacer Avesh Khan respectively. Bhuvneshwar Kumar has been excellent with the new ball and death overs and has claimed 5 wickets so far.
Hardik Pandya will be a vital cog in India’s bowling unit. Avesh Khan and Arshdeep Singh went for a lot of runs in the last game with the former struggling big time. Yuzvendra Chahal will be partnered with Ravichandran Ashwin in the spin department with Deepak Hooda’s part-time off-spinners providing the depth.
Hardik Pandya’s all-around brilliance powered India to a thrilling five-wicket win over arch-rivals Pakistan in the 2nd match of the Asia Cup 2022 group league game on Sunday, 28th August 2022.
