Asia Cup: Pakistan make slow start against IndiaAbdul Gh Lone 23 September 2018 0 COMMENTS
Pakistan won the toss and elected to bat against India in the Super Four stage of the Asia Cup on Sunday at the Dubai International Stadium.
Captain Sarfraz Ahmed said that the pitch seems conducive for batting today and the team will strive to make a good start, giving a reasonably good target.
He said that there have been two changes in the team. Bowler Mohammad Amir will be playing today’s match against India, whereas, Shadab Khan will be replacing Haris Sohail in the team.
With the final of Asia Cup on the line, Pakistan will be looking to exact revenge on their subcontinent neighbors after their eight-wicket defeat at the hands of India on Wednesday.
The Pakistan batting order crumbled with the entire team returning to the pavilion after scoring just 162.
However, former cricketers say no team is the outright favourite for the game today.
