IND vs PAK ASIA CUP 2022, Super-4: After defeating Pakistan by 5 wickets in their first match of the Asia Cup 2022, Team India will now take on the field against the arch-rival team in Super-4 as well. In this second round match also, the Indian team would like to start with a win. If India wants to register a win against arch-rivals Pakistan like the previous match in the Super-4, then its top order will have to perform well.

Along with this, the fast bowlers of Team India will also have to fulfill their responsibility well. If the performance of India’s top-order batsmen is a problem in the powerplay, then the inexperienced Avesh Khan’s death overs bowling is also a matter of concern for the team management. In such a situation, India sees the need to make changes in their bowling attack, as they face Pakistan, who beat Hong Kong by more than 150 runs in the last match.

Ravindra Jadeja will be missed!

India will also miss Ravindra Jadeja who has been ruled out of the tournament due to injury. Axar Patel has been included in the team in his place. In the previous match against Pakistan, head coach Rahul Dravid had sent Jadeja to bat at number four to create a combination of right and left-handers as Rishabh Pant was left out in that match. It will be interesting to see if skipper Rohit Sharma and Dravid play the same bet on Sunday. But it would not be an exaggeration to say that if a left-hander is to be included in the top six batsmen, then only Pant seems suitable for him.

ASIA CUP 2022: Rizwan leaves Kohli behind, Pakistan ahead in bowling too; Know Top 3 Batsmen and Bowlers

Last Sunday it was Hardik Pandya whose all-round performance helped India register a thrilling win in the last over and Rohit would be expecting the same performance from his other players in this match as well. For the Indian team, however, the defensive attitude of the top-order batsmen in the power play can become a problem. In the last match against Pakistan, neither Virat Kohli or Rohit Sharma was able to play comfortably. His problem got worse as the pitch slowed down.

All eyes on KL Rahul!

Even against a weak team like Hong Kong, the Indian top-order batted slowly and it was Suryakumar Yadav’s finest innings that helped the team score big scores. The slow game of the Indian top order can be gauged from this that KL Rahul scored 36 runs in 39 balls, which is his slowest innings so far. He became the victim of a golden duck against Pakistan. So the question arises whether India will need to make changes to add aggression to their top order, as it is clear that the combination of Rahul, Rohit and Kohli is not working. He may get another chance but he will need to change his attitude.

Pakistan batsmen also need to score more runs in the first 10 overs. Mohammad Rizwan and Babar Azam have had good success while chasing but when it comes to batting first, the pair has not had much success. Apart from this, the Dubai pitch is playing slow, which can create problems for the batsmen.

Avesh Khan raised concern

Another question before India is whether both Avesh Khan and Arshdeep Singh will find a place in the playing XI. Avesh Khan has proved costly in both the matches so far. When India have a choice of a player who can bowl economical in Axar Patel, then Deepak Hooda can be tried as the batting all-rounder or Ravichandran Ashwin as the bowling all-rounder. Two of the six batsmen in Pakistan’s top order are left-handers Fakhar Zaman and Khushdil Shah. So, having an off-spinner along with Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Hardik can be a good combination.

Squads of both teams

India: Rohit Sharma (Captain), KL Rahul, Virat Kohli, Suryakumar Yadav, Rishabh Pant, Deepak Hooda, Dinesh Karthik, Hardik Pandya, Axar Patel, R Ashwin, Yuzvendra Chahal, Ravi Bishnoi, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Arshdeep Singh, Avesh Khan.

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