Asia Cup 2022 IND vs PAK : The preparations for the Asia Cup 2022 are progressing rapidly. Its schedule has been released and the first match will be played on August 27. Sri Lanka and Afghanistan will face each other in the opening match followed by a breath-taking match, ie India vs Pakistan. The match between India and Pakistan has a different thrill. Both the teams do not play series among themselves, but if there is a big tournament, then all eyes are on this match. Earlier, there was a clash between India and Pakistan in the T20 World Cup 2021, in which Pakistan defeated Team India by ten wickets. This was the first time that the Pakistani team defeated the Indian cricket team in the World Cup. The special thing is that this match of T20 World Cup was played at Dubai International Stadium in UAE and this time also it is a coincidence that the match between India and Pakistan on August 28 will also be played at the same Dubai International Stadium.
Team India lost by ten wickets in T20 World Cup 2021
Virat Kohli used to be the captain of Team India when these two teams were face to face in the T20 World Cup 2021. Babar Azam was the captain of Pakistan at the same time. When Team India went to the field to bat first in this match, then the Indian team got a tremendous setback. Rohit Sharma, KL Rahul got out very early, after that Surya Kumar Yadav also got out and returned to the pavilion. Although captain Virat Kohli struggled for some time and scored a half-century, but he did not get the support of any batsman. Rishabh Pant supported him for some time, but it was insufficient. This was the reason that Team India had scored only 151 runs in 20 overs for the loss of seven wickets. This match was played on 24 October 2021. That is, after about ten months, this great match will happen again. Chasing the target given by Team India, Pakistan scored the necessary runs for victory in 17.5 overs and no batsman got out. Captain Babar Azam scored 68 runs off 52 balls and second opener Mohammad Rizwan scored 79 runs off 55 balls.
This time there will be a match between Rohit Sharma and Babar Azam
Now ten months later, again a fierce competition can be found between India and Pakistan. Ten months ago the captain of Team India was Virat Kohli and now the responsibility of captaincy is on Rohit Sharma. Since then, many players have also changed. Some new players have come in and some are leaving the team. Right now many players of Team India were resting in between, but there is every possibility that players like Virat Kohli, Jasprit Bumrah and KL Rahul will return. Pakistan has also announced its team for the Asia Cup, while Team India can be announced on August 8. There are currently two matches left in the five-match T20 series between India and West Indies, which will be played on August 6 and 7, after which the Indian team can be announced. It will be interesting to see whether Team India can avenge their loss to Pakistan at the same Dubai International Stadium.
