Asia Cup 2022: India vs Pakistan Super4s – Best fantasy team, possible playing XIs, pitch and weather conditions and more | Cricket News – Times of India

There is no doubt that on paper India have the stronger team when compared to the squad that Pakistan have for the ongoing Asia Cup. Pakistan have also been hit by multiple injuries, while India suffered a blow when all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja was ruled out of the tournament with a knee injury earlier. Axar Patel has replaced Jadeja in the Indian squad and is expected to play tonight vs Pakistan.
While India have more experience and the more well balanced squad the Pakistan pacers, though not very experienced, are more than capable of troubling the best of batters. The Men in Green though suffered another injury blow ahead of their Super 4 clash vs India with young pacer Shahnawaz Dahani being ruled out of this match with a side strain. Either Hasan Ali or Mohammad Hasnanin are likely to replace Dahani in the Pakistan playing XI. Hasan Ali is the more experienced pacer, but Hasnain is quicker.
