welcome to Sport star’s HIGHLIGHTS of the Asia Cup 2022 match between India and Pakistan from the Dubai International Cricket Stadium in Dubai.

And a Hardik Pandya special with both bat and ball seals a thrilling win for India!!!

win for India!!!

Team India is all set to clash with Pakistan in the much-anticipated match in Asia Cup 2022 in Dubai today.

Emotions are running high for both sides this time. India will be looking forward to starting off their title defence with a bang and avenging their loss during the last meeting at ICC T20 World Cup 2021. On the other hand, Pakistan will be aiming to down Team India once again and carry on with the momentum they have had over India since their last outing.
Hardik Pandya’s unbeaten 33 and Jadeja’s 35 helped India cross the finish line in chase of 148 after Bhuvneshwar and Hardik restricted Pakistan with superb spells

Hardik Pandya (33 no., 17b, 4x4x, 1×6) and Ravindra Jadeja (35, 29b, 2×4, 2×6) kept their cool under pressure to guide India to a five-wicket win over Pakistan in the Asia Cup cricket tournament at Dubai International Stadium here on Sunday.

At 89 for four, the pair joined forces as India chased 148. Pakistan was in the lead at this point, but the all-rounders persisted to reduce the total. Mohammad Nawaz, a left-arm spinner, removed Jadeja’s stumps with seven required off the final over. Hardik needed to hit a six to complete the task.

When Virat Kohli sliced at Naseem Shah’s full delivery, his historic 100th T20I came dangerously close to ending in defeat. At second slip, Fakhar Zaman took a tough chance but reacted a little slowly. When Kohli reached 35, a split-second of hesitation led to his demise. He attempted to get to the ball’s pitch while dancing

Experienced middle-order batters/all-rounders like Hardik Pandya and Rishabh Pant will also be looking forward to carrying on the fine form they are in. All eyes will be on Hardik as ever since he has regained his fitness, there has been no stopping him with both bat and ball. If he plays, Dinesh Karthik can also deliver some fine finishing touches and accelerate run-scoring.

Indian bowling attack has a lot of depth. In absence of lead pacer Jasprit Bumrzah, all eyes will be on Bhuvneshwar Kumar to lead the attack. He has been superb for India in T20Is this year, especially during powerplays, a phase in which India will look up to him for early strikes. Youngsters Arshdeep Singh and Avesh Khan will have their chance to make an impact as well. In the spin department, veterans Ravichandran Ashwin and Ravindra Jadeja will be leading the attack. They along with Yuzvnedra Chahal and youngster Ravi Bishnoi will have to complement the pace attack well and bamboozle Pakistanis with their deliveries.

Coming to Pakistan, they are the third-ranked side in ICC T20I rankings and are not to be taken lightly. Their top order has two in-form batters in Babar Azam and Mohammed Rizwan. These two are Pakistan’s best as far as T20Is are concerned but the side has to make sure that they are not reliable just on them and collapse if these two underwhelm with the bat.
Other batters/all-rounders like Fakhar Zaman, Asif Ali, Haider Ali etc will have to contribute with the bat with the same energy and efficiency as their top batters if they are to pose a big challenge to the Men in Blue.

In absence of left-arm pacer Shaheen Afridi, Pakistani pace attack has taken a big dent. Yet another pacer Mohammed Wasim was also ruled out due to injury on Friday.
Irrespective of what the result is, fans are guaranteed a high-voltage cricket clash between these two Asian giants, and they will surely be glued to their TV sets. Indian and Pakistan flags and jersey colours all over the stadium will decorate the stands and the sounds of national anthems, Bollywood songs, fans chanting will ring through Dubai and will create an environment fitting for a clash as big as this one.

Asia Cup 2022 Highlights: India vs. Pakistan T-20 In a treat of a match between India and Pakistan, Hardik Pandya bowled and batted India to a spectacular victory. Fans were treated to a classic India-Pakistan match with a field that suited both teams’ talented fast bowlers because the two proud teams haven’t played a tight game in a few years. Along with Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Hardik Pandya was India’s star bowler and hitter. He first had figures of 3/25 before going on to score an unbeaten 33 off 17 balls. With a six off the fourth ball of the final over, he claimed victory.

The India vs. Pakistan Asia Cup 2022 match is over, everyone!

A memorable game, and Indian supporters may rest easy at night. The Pakistani fans will be disappointed, but hey, they made a match out of a target of 148, and just the sight of young Naseem Shah limping and hobbling in his final over and still bowling three back-to-back dot balls to Hardik Pandya, almost getting his wicket off the last of those, while grinding his teeth and fighting against the excruciating pain of cramps should make them proud. Let’s hope the remaining India-Pakistan matches measure up to this wonderful encounter. Well, let’s hope that every game lives up to this because the Asia Cup promises to be amazing.
