Asia Cup 2022: India vs Pakistan – Interesting statistical trivia | Cricket News – Times of India


It’s time for another India vs Pakistan clash. The two sub-continental heavyweights will clash tonight for a second time in the ongoing Asia Cup. This time it will be in the crucial Super 4s stage.
India and Pakistan are the favourites also to play each other in the final. The rivalry is a storied one and has produced some of the most unforgettable cricket action over the decades. But often, especially in recent times, an India vs Pakistan clash hasn’t lived up to the hype that it generates, producing almost one-sided affairs. The league stage match in the Asia Cup this time though was a reminder of just how exciting this contest can be, with India pulling off a 5 wicket win, with 2 balls left.

The fans will be hoping to witness another nail-biting contest this evening, when the two sides go toe to toe in Dubai.
