Live: India vs Pakistan, Super Four Match 3, Asia Cup 2018

India vs Pakistan is been a highly rated game in the history of the game. Nowadays its hard to see the rivalry game due to the political issues between both nations. But now it will be a delighting news for the cricket fans as both nations are set to clash again in the super four stage of the Asia Cup 2018.

Both India and Pakistan are said to have equal chances of lifting the trophy in the tournament. With all these things going around, both the teams met in the same venue three days ago. In that game men in blue had full dominance over their rivals in all the departments as they won the game by 8 wickets comfortably.

Including this win, Indians are having an unbeaten tournament so far in the three games they played. In the last two games Indian bowlers did a nice job by bowling out Pakistan and Bangladesh under 200 and that made the job more easier for their batsmen. Ravindra Jadeja’s comeback have boosted the momentum for men in blue.

The three spinners Ravindra Jadeja, Kuldeep Yadav and Yuzvendra Chahal along with the part timers Kedar Jadhav will be a big threat for Pakistan in the slow pitch of Dubai International Stadium. And the form of Indian openers Rohit Sharma and Shikhar Dhawan will be a big positive for team India.

Otherwise there will be no issue in the Indian dressing room unless any injury issues make a threat like what happened two days ago. Rohit Sharma will be looking to play with the same men who have beaten Bangladesh in same venue.

In Pakistan camp, they have to do some corrections in a mean time to take on their rivals. Even though Pakistan won the game against Afghanistan their batting lie up looks to be repaired. The lower order batsmen have failed to perform in both games against India and Afghanistan. And their left handed opener Fakhar Zaman has to step up as the team needs him more in the crucial game.

Shoaib Malik to Ambati Rayudu. Off break length ball, to leg on the back foot working, leading edge to silly mid off for 1 run, shy attempt by ul-Haq. India have cruised to a 9 wicket victory in Dubai after an utterly dominant display against Pakistan. Rohit Sharma and Shikhar Dhawan completely took the game away from Sarfraz Ahmed's team in an ODI batting masterclass. Regular strike rotation was punctuated with glorious boundary hitting, as Pakistan fell apart in the field. Both Indian openers completed sensational centuries, making it look simple after the men in green had struggled with the bat earlier in the day. Jasprit Bumrah in particular was able to produce yorkers on demand to strangle the Pakistan run-scoring, but it is Sharma and Dhawan that will take the headlines.
