LIVE: IND vs PAK | 1st Innings | Asia Cup 2018 | PunjabiReel.in
Following a 26 run victory against Hong Kong, India will take on arch-rivals Pakistan in a much-anticipated clash of the 2018 Asia Cup at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium on Wednesday.
Even without regular skipper Virat Kohli, the Indian side, led by Rohit Sharma, is an intimidating one in the limited-overs format.
In the searing Dubai heat, where the mercury has risen up to 43 degree Celsius, the primary aim of the Men in Blue would be to get their combination right before the big game.
Indian team boasts of the likes of Rohit, Shikhar Dhawan, KL Rahul, Kedar Jadhav in batting along with Jasprit Bumrah, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Kuldeep Yadav and Yuzvendra Chahal in bowling.
For the past few years, Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s waning batting skills have repeatedly come under scanner and this tournament will give everyone a fair idea of his ideal position. Whether it would end up being No.5, 6 or 7 will be the big contention going into the Pakistan game.
