IND Vs PAK Playing XI

For the second time in the past 7 days, the fans will witness the arch-rivals India and Pakistan to compete against each other for another edge of the seat contest.

The super four game of Asia Cup 2022 between India and Pakistan game will take place on Sunday, September 4, at the Dubai International Stadium.

The 6 team tournament was started on August 27, and after the group stage, India, Pakistan, Sri Lanka and Afghanistan qualify for the super four stage.

With the first match of this stage was played between Sri Lanka and Afghanistan, which the Lankan side won 4 wickets. In the super four stage, all four teams will face each other and the two teams among them will play the finals on September 11.

In between all these thrills, the biggest clash between the two Asian giants is on cards with all eyes will be on Rohit-led Indian side and Babar-led Pakistan side when they going to face each other for the second time in 7 days.

Last Sunday, on August 28, when two giants compete, India defeated Pakistan in a last-over thriller and fans of both the nations are expecting another solid edge of the seat match on this Sunday too.

The biggest setback both teams are witnessing are that they are competing in the marquee event without some of their main players due to injuries.

India, who were playing the Asia cup without their speedster Jasprit Bumrah will miss the services of their favourite Ravindra Jadeja too for the remaining Asia Cup fixtures as the all-rounder was ruled out from the tournament, while Pakistan, who are playing be without Shaheen Shah Afridi, will now miss Shahnawaz Dahani as the young bowler too ruled out from the tournament.

However, both teams are still looking strong on paper, making it hard to predict who will win. Given the quality of their trustworthy bowlers, especially Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Yuzvendra Chahal, as well as their power-hitting batters, India will have a stronger chance of winning the match on Sunday.
