Asia Cup 2018: India vs Pakistan will face to face

 

India and Pakistan team will face to face shortly after the Asia Cup. After one year and 31 days, once again these two teams will get to see the great fight.

The two teams had earlier climbed past the Champions Trophy final last year where Pakistan had beaten. Now the eyes of Team India will be on account of that loss.

 

TEAM INDIA

Asia Cup 2018: India vs Pakistan will face to face after a long time

For this important match against Pakistan, the Indian team will go on the field with their full swing. So obviously, the team that played against Hong Kong will be shuffled.

These three changes can be made in Team India for this great match against Pakistan. Jaspreet Bumrah’s place in Khalil Ahmed’s place is almost certain,

while Shardul Thakur’s place, Hardik Pandya can be given a chance in the last eleven. Along with this, instead of Dinesh Karthik, Lokesh Rahul can get the place.

India is descending without its regular captain Virat Kohli in this tournament.

Virat is not only the captain of the team, but he is regarded as one of the best batsmen of the current era. In such a situation, their absence could be a matter of relief for Pakistan.

Many Pakistan players have admitted that the absence of Kohli will be a beneficial deal for his team.

 

Rohit gets a big responsibility

 

Without Kohli, the responsibility increases on Rohit. They will not only need to get runs from their bats but also as a captain, they have to keep their strategies intact.

In addition to Rohit, there will be a greater responsibility on Shikhar Dhawan in batting.

In the last few years after Kohli, these two have taken the Indian batting firmly and now they have to face another tough test.

Lokesh Rahul can come in third place without Kohli. Rohit can also try his hand at this number. Being an experienced player, the weight of Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s shoulders has also increased.

The bowling of the team is above Bhubaneswar Kumar, Jaspreet Bumrah. Yuzwendra Chahal and Kuldeep Yadav will be in the lead role in the spin.

 

TEAM PAKISTAN

If there is the talk of Pakistan, then it is the responsibility of batting Babar Azam, Fakhar Jaman.

Jamshed had batted very well against India in the final of the Champions Trophy and had laid the foundation of winning the team by creating huge scores.

He has also scored a double hundred against Zimbabwe recently. His bat is in colour which is not a good sign for India. Imam ul Haq hit a half-century against Hong Kong.

Fakhr and Imam’s opening pair have the potential to disturb the Indian bowlers.

Pakistan’s strength is its bowling. At the end of his bowling, Pakistan had won the Champions Trophy in India.

The bowling responsibility will be mainly on Hasan Ali and Mohammad Aamir. At the same time, young Usman Khan to has influenced his recent performance. He made three wickets in his last match.

Pakistan has only one strong bowler in spin, it is leg-spinner Shadab Khan. Pakistan also has an experienced off-spinner in the form of Malik, but for many days his spin magic has not been much effective.
