Chasing a target of 148 runs, India lost opener KL Rahul to debutant Naseem Shah the second ball. Then Rohit Sharma (12) and Virat Kohli (35) steady the innings, but Pakistan hit back with quick wickets. It was followed by a 52-run stand between Ravindra Jadeja (35) and Pandya. Earlier, Rohit won the toss and opted to bowl first. And for the first time, Indian pacers claimed all ten wickets in a T20I innings as Bhuvneshwar Kumar & Co. dismissed Pakistan for 147 all out. Bhuvi registered figures of 4/26 while Pandya got three for 25. Young pacer Arshdeep Singh got a brace. Avesh Khan took one. India next play Hong Kong in their second and final Group A match at the same venue on Wednesday. Catch IND vs PAK, Asia Cup 2022 highlights.

    India: Rohit Sharma (c), KL Rahul, Virat Kohli, Suryakumar Yadav, Dinesh Karthik (wk), Hardik Pandya, Ravindra Jadeja, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Avesh Khan, Yuzvendra Chahal, Arshdeep Singh.

    Pakistan: Babar Azam (c), Mohammad Rizwan (wk), Fakhar Zaman, Iftikhar Ahmed, Khushdil Shah, Asif Ali, Shadab Khan, Mohammad Nawaz, Naseem Shah, Haris Rauf, Shahnawaz Dahani.

  • 28 Aug 2022 / 7:05 PM


    India captain Rohit Sharma wins the toss and well, after spending some good time talking about the importance of this particular rivalry and of course, the team selection, he opts to bowl first. Blame it on the noise! Rishabh Pant misses out. Dinesh Karthik in.

  • 28 Aug 2022 / 6:56 PM

    At Least One Debutant

    Players are warming up, and the stands already half-filled. Naseem Shah is set for his T20I debut for Pakistan. The young pacer just got his cap. And Virat Kohli was seen giving a speech during the Indian team huddle.

  • 28 Aug 2022 / 6:51 PM

    Captains Speak

    Rohit Sharma, India: "Even if dew is a factor, we've played enough cricket here in the last few years to understand what we need to do as a group and as individuals as well. So I think either way we should be prepared to counter whatever is in front of us."

    Babar Azam, Pakistan: "Injuries are a part of the game and we have to accept that. We trust our young bowlers who have consistently played well. Shaheen is one of the best bowlers and his aggression is unparalleled. He is the one who leads the bowling unit. So we will surely miss him."

  • 28 Aug 2022 / 6:45 PM


    So, it's back again. India and Pakistan clash in the second match of Asia Cup 2022 in Dubai tonight. The last time India and Pakistan met on the cricket field, the latter raced away with a 10-wicket win at ICC T20 World Cup 2021. But India, the defending champions, have an 8-5 win-loss record against Pakistan in Asia Cup. And the two teams are back at the same venue for another installment of this storied rivalry. This is a Group A match.

    This is the tenth meeting between India and Pakistan in T20Is. India lead Pakistan 7-2 in the head-to-head record. But last October, a certain Shaheen Afridi rocked the Indian top-order, en route to a player of the match performance. Then there was also the mauling of Indian bowlers by Mohammad Rizwan and Babar Azam. But tonight, there will be no Afridi. And so thus, Indian pacer Jasprit Bumrah.

    Here are the squads:

    India: Rohit Sharma (c), KL Rahul, Virat Kohli, Rishabh Pant (wk), Suryakumar Yadav, Hardik Pandya, Ravindra Jadeja, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Yuzvendra Chahal, Arshdeep Singh, Avesh Khan, Ravichandran Ashwin, Deepak Hooda, Dinesh Karthik, Ravi Bishnoi.

    Pakistan: Babar Azam (c), Mohammad Rizwan (wk), Fakhar Zaman, Iftikhar Ahmed, Khushdil Shah, Asif Ali, Mohammad Hasnain, Shadab Khan, Usman Qadir, Haris Rauf, Naseem Shah, Shahnawaz Dahani, Mohammad Nawaz, Hasan Ali, Haider Ali.
