India and Pakistan rarely have the opportunity to face each other in cricket, but when they do, it’s a spectacle like no other. The intensity of the rivalry ignites strong emotions, stadiums sell out, vendors thrive, television screens suffer, and the match’s outcome often overshadows the context.
In the Asia Cup 2023, there could be three such encounters, starting with the one scheduled for Saturday (September 2) in Pallekele.
However, the initial clash between these cricket heavyweights might be marred by unfavorable weather conditions, as the forecast predicts rain and thunderstorms throughout the day.
The last ODI encounter between these two sides took place during the 2019 World Cup. Since then, they’ve faced each other in four T20I matches, including those in the 20-over Asia Cup and the T20 World Cup. If the weather permits, the weekend game might also be a shortened affair.
India is entering the competition with a full-strength squad for the first time in several months. They underwent a training camp in Alur, on the outskirts of Bengaluru, and head coach Rahul Dravid expressed confidence in the lineup, with players like Shreyas Iyer and Jasprit Bumrah making their return.
India will be eager to perform well despite their limited recent game time, especially considering the lack of sufficient ODIs in the lead-up to the World Cup. Player match fitness will be as crucial as the game itself.
On the other hand, Pakistan started their Asia Cup campaign impressively, thanks to centuries from Babar Azam and Iftikhar Ahmed, as well as a solid bowling performance. With a fit and in-form squad, Pakistan has already made a statement in these conditions.
However, there are concerns, particularly with Fakhar Zaman’s struggles at the top of the order and Nepal keeping the Pakistan batting lineup in check for most of the game. Additionally, Shaheen Afridi, despite picking up a couple of wickets, seemed off his rhythm and required attention near the boundary, a situation Pakistan hopes won’t develop into a serious issue.
Pakistan has decided to maintain their winning combination from the Nepal game and will field the same XI for their highly-anticipated match against India in the Asia Cup. Their lineup includes three fast bowlers and three spin-bowling all-rounders, making for an interesting combination for this crucial clash.
Pakistan XI: Fakhar Zaman, Imam Ul Haq, Babar Azam, Mohammad Rizwan, Agha Salman, Iftikhar Ahmed, Shadab Khan, Mohammad Nawaz, Shaheen Afridi, Naseem Shah, Haris Rauf.
