DUBAI: The high-octane clash of the Twenty20 Asia Cup 2022 is set to take place today [Sunday] when arch-rivals — Pakistan and India — will hit the ground at the Dubai Cricket Stadium in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) at 7pm PST.
Both teams are well prepared for a major cricket event in Asia. Also, Pakistan has finalised the final playing eleven but the names of the team will be revealed before the toss.
The green shirts will have batting powerhouses like captain Babar Azam, Mohammad Rizwan, Fakhar Zaman, Khushdil Shah, Asif Ali and Hyder Ali. Both Shadab Khan and Mohammad Nawaz will showcase their spinning skills along with their batting prowess.
Naseem Shah and Haris Rauf will join the team as fast bowlers. Either Shahnawaz Dhani or Muhammad Hasnain will be in the playing eleven.
The Indians will feature big names like Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma and KL Rahul who will be aided by talented pacers and spinners. The two major bowlers of the two teams — Shaheen Shah Afridi and Jasprit Bumrah — will not be available for this match. Cricket fans will miss both of them.
