The scorecard of India vs Pakistan Super Four tie can be found HERE while ball-by-ball commentary HERE. India began their Asia Cup 2022 campaign with a five-wicket thrashing of Pakistan in Group A with Hardik Pandya doing the star turn with both bat and ball.
If Hardik (3/35) and Bhuvneshwar Kumar (4/26) applied brakes while bowling, it was the youngest of the Pandya brothers, who anchored the Indian innings with Ravindra Jadeja after the famed top-three failed to deliver last Sunday.
India will miss the services of Jadeja for the rest of the tournament after the all-rounder was ruled out with a knee injury. Rohit Sharma’s lack of runs at the top is a bit of concern for the team management while the consistent leaking of runs by young pacers Arshdeep Singh and Avesh Khan will give head coach Rahul Dravid headache.
All eyes will once again be on former India captain Virat Kohli. The star batter scored almost a run-a-ball 35 against Pakistan before registering his 31st T20 fifty during their 40-run win against Hong Kong.
On the other hand, after India loss, Pakistan made a strong comeback with a 1550-run thrashing of minnows Hong Kong on Friday. In a do-or-die encounter in Sharjah, the Babar Azam-led side first put up 193/2, thanks to Mohammad Rizwan (78 not out), Fakhar Zaman (53) and Khushdil Shah (35 not out).
In reply, Hong Kong batters just crumbled in front of spinners Shadab Khan and Mohammed Nawaz to be all out for just 38. Interestingly, none of the Hong Kong batters could score double digits and none of the Pakistan bowlers conceded in double digits.
Apart from Pakistan, India will also play against Sri Lanka and Afghanistan on September 6 and 8 respectively in Super Four stage. The top two teams after the Super Four stage will play in the final on September 11.
