Live: India vs Pakistan, Match 5, Asia Cup 2018

Cricket’s most talked and appreciated rivalry is back in to action after more than one year of time. This time it will be more special as it takes place in Asia’s biggest cricketing event, Asia Cup. Right from the day when the two groups of the tournament are announced, hype for this match has started.

To add more flavor in to the hype, the schedule of the match has added more talks as India are playing their group games against Hong Kong and Pakistan in back to back days and this will be a huge challenge for men in blue regarding the conditions in United Arab Emirates.

Pakistan will come into the match with two days off after an easy win against Hong Kong on Saturday. They will take some confidence from the last encounter between two nations. And Pakistan will have an upper hand regarding the ground conditions.

At the same time India will have a positive that they will play on the same track they played against Hong Kong in previous day. Men in blue will seek to take revenge for their humiliating loss in the final of ICC Champions Trophy in last year. Absence of their skipper Virat Kohli will be a big challenge for India against a stronger Pakistan side.

In the Pakistan will seek to continue the momentum they get in their opening encounter. They had played with their full strength against Hong Kong. With the side look balanced they will continue to play with the same XI.

In the opponents they rested some of their players on Tuesday regarding the fixtures. Jasprit Bumrah and Hardik Pandya will come back to the side as men in blue might continue with their regular bowling combination despite the performances of Khaleel Ahmed and Shradul Takur against Hong Kong unless Rohit pulls off some thing out of the box.

FOUR! Shoaib Malik to Ambati Rayudu. Off break back of a length, to leg on the back foot pulling, well timed past deep square leg for 4 runs. Short and hammered to the rope. India win by eight wickets and it has been a truly dominant performance from ball one. They restricted Pakistan to a below-par score and with the bat they chased down the total incredibly easy. Rohit Sharma and Shikhar Dhawan were in imperious form at the top before Dinesh Karthik and Ambati Rayudu saw them home. Pakistan will try to forget about today and will have their sights on the upcoming games in the tournament.
