Although the Indian team is scheduled to play its first match against Pakistan on 28th August, if we are talking about the records, India and Pakistan have played each other 4 times in the Asia Cup, with India winning all the matches.

What’s the role of four pillars in Asia Cup 2022:

The first pillar, Rohit Sharma, will captain India in the 2022 Asia Cup and lead the team in the India vs. Pakistan match. Sharma will also be the team’s starter. Recently, the right-handed batsman played a brilliant 64-run innings in a T20I match against the West Indies. He is in good form and will be a key hitter for the team against Pakistan.

KL Rahul is still recovering from his injury; he will not be able to reach the 2022 Asian Cup. Therefore, Virat Kohli can promote himself as the tournament opener. During India vs. Pakistan clash at the T20 World Cup 2021 last year, Kohli scored a much-needed fifty for the team. He will try to play another good tackle against Pakistan.

Therefore, Suryakumar Yadav could be the team’s middle-order batsman in India vs. Pakistan clash at the 2022 Asia Cup. The right-handed batsman scored a century in a T20I match against England last month. He also reached a match-winning half-century in the recent T20 International against the West Indies. Yadav will be a strong middle-order hitter for the team.

Rishabh Pant could be the team’s goalkeeper in India vs. Pakistan match. The left-handed hitter is the goalkeeper’s primary choice in all formats. Recently, in an ODI against England, he scored a century of victories. Pant is a brilliant, hard-hitting hitter behind the stumps.

History Between these two cricket teams:

India and Pakistan have a long and complicated history as well as being fierce rivals on the cricket field.

Cricket has often been used to try and ease tensions between the two countries, and there have been some memorable matches between them over the years. In 1999, Pakistan beat India in the final of the Cricket World Cup, which was held in England. This was a huge victory for Pakistan, and the scenes of celebration in Karachi were shown worldwide.

In 2004, India and Pakistan met in the final of the Asia Cup, which was held in Sri Lanka. This time it was India who came out on top, winning by 5 wickets. The match was very close and was only decided in the final.

These are just two examples of how many times these two teams have played in big tournaments. Given the history between them, every match is always highly anticipated and eagerly awaited by fans of both countries.

So, we can say that the upcoming Asia Cup 2022 will be a very exciting tournament, and we can expect some great cricket matches between India and Pakistan.

How’s their Preparation going?

The Indian team is very excited about the upcoming Asia Cup and is working hard to prepare for the tournament. The team has been training hard and is looking in good form.

The BCCI has announced the tournament’s squad, which looks like a very strong squad.

However, the last time these two teams met in the Asia Cup was in 2018, when India won by 9 wickets. So, it will be interesting to see how both the teams fare against each other this time.

The Indian team will look to continue its good form in the Asia Cup and will aim to win the tournament for the seventh time. So, it will be tough for the other teams to stop India from winning the tournament. Stay tuned for more updates with us.
