India vs Pakistan Score, Asia Cup 2018: After winning the toss, Pakistan skipper Sarfraz Ahmed decided to bat first in a high-profile game against India. While Pakistan has gone into the match with an unchanged playing XI India made two changes. Hardik Pandya and Bhuvneshwar Kumar are in the side in place of Shardul Thakur and Khaleel Ahmed. Both India nad Pakistan already reached the next round of the tournament but would like to register another win. While Shikhar Dhawan cashed in on the chance against a weaker opposition and Khaleel Ahmed made an impressive debut too, there were more concerns than positives for Rohit Sharma from the Hong Kong match.
The lower-middle order failed to capitalise on the near-perfect start given by top four and India’s inability to score in the last 10 overs was once again exposed. Another area of concern for the side has been the failure to pick up wickets with the new ball but could be addressed with Jasprit Bumrah’s return to the side.
Here are the playing XIs for the match –
Pakistan: Fakhar Zaman, Imam-ul-Haq, Babar Azam, Shoaib Malik, Sarfraz Ahmed(w/c), Asif Ali, Shadab Khan, Faheem Ashraf, Mohammad Amir, Hasan Ali, Usman Khan
India: Rohit Sharma(c), Shikhar Dhawan, Ambati Rayudu, Dinesh Karthik, MS Dhoni(w), Hardik Pandya, Kedar Jadhav, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Kuldeep Yadav, Jasprit Bumrah, Yuzvendra Chahal
