ABOUT THE MATCH

This is the match everyone has been waiting for ever since the Asia Cup fixtures were announced. This tournament could be extra special because there is a possibility of the archrivals meeting thrice in the tournament as both are likely to enter the super four stage and could even reach the final.

Match Preview

The last time the two teams met was in the final of the ICC Champions Trophy last year where despite having lost the opener to the same opponents, Pakistan comprehensively won the final by a whopping 180 runs to lift the trophy and embarrass India.

With Virat Kohli rested for the tournament, the onus is on Rohit Sharma to make a difference and unlike the match against Hong Kong, this encounter will be a tough test for his credentials as captain.

The Indian batting line up that went missing in the Champions Trophy final will have to bring their A game while the bowlers will look to limit the Pakistani batsmen. Rohit will be banking on his spin duo of Kuldeep Yadav and Yuzvendra Chahal.

Fakhar Zaman’s maiden ODI ton was the difference between the two sides in the Champions Trophy final last year and the opener will hope to be the main man yet again when his team crosses swords with India. Having scored an ODI double ton recently, the 28-year-old is high on form.

After Zaman had helped set up a 329-run target for India, pacer Mohammad Amir had ripped through the Indian batting line up in that match. He too will be hoping for an encore.

Pitch Conditions

 

Compared to the previous few days, Wednesday will be slightly less hot in Dubai but the maximum temperature is still likely to be around 39 degree Celsius. As usual, humidity will be a deciding factor as the pitch will not offer much turn in the second innings.

Toss Prediction

 

The team that wins the toss should ideally field first.

Our Match Prediction

India’s superior batting line up gives them the edge in this tight encounter.
