India and Pakistan will play their first match in the Asia Cup 2022 on Sunday. In this extremely high-voltage match, while Pakistans team will try to maintain the winning streak against India in the T20 World Cup 2021, Rohit Sharmas Team India will be eyeing to avenge the defeat in the previous match. . In this match both the teams will give their lives to win. Although the leading fast bowlers of both teams (Jasprit Bumrah, and Shaheen Afridi) are not playing in the Asia Cup 2022, still both teams have no dearth of good batsmen as well as good bowlers.
There is no doubt that Team India (IND vs PAK) would like to bet on victory in Dubai and for this the selection of the playing XI will be important. Talking about the Indian probable playing XI, vice-captain KL Rahul can open the innings against Pakistan along with captain Rohit Sharma. Virat Kohli will be at number three, while Suryakumar Yadav will bat at number four. As a wicketkeeper in the team, there can be one between Rishabh Pant and Dinesh Karthik. Hardik Pandya can get a chance for Ravindra Jadeja as two all-rounders in the team. Yuzvendra Singh Chahal can be in the team as spinner while Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Arshdeep Singh and Avesh Khan can be given a chance in the team as three fast bowlers.
Although the Pakistan Cricket Board has included young pacer Mohammad Hasnain as a replacement for Shaheen, will he get a place in such a big match despite less experience? This is a big question. The answer is that he is most likely to make it to the playing XI as he has come back to improve his action in recent times and is bowling in good rhythm. Hasnain has good pace and also gets bounce. Haris Rauf and Naseem Shah will be fielded to support him. Pakistans top order is fixed, with captain Babar Azam, wicketkeeper Mohammad Rizwan and veteran batsman Fakhar Zaman in the top 3. On the other hand, spin all-rounder Shadab Khan will be the main spinner of the team. To support them, the team can field leg-left-arm spinner Mohammad Nawaz as Indias top-order has not been comfortable even against left-arm spinners. Apart from Asif Ali, Haider Ali or Khushdil Shah can be given a chance as a power hitter.
According to the Meteorological Department, both heat and humidity will be more in Dubai. The temperature is expected to remain 40 degree Celsius. In the night the temperature will drop to 35 degree Celsius. Wind speed is expected to be 17 km/h. Humidity is expected to be around 35 percent. As far as rain is concerned, no such possibility is remote. But due to the fall of light dew in the night, the ball will definitely slip. In such a situation, it can be said that in this match played between India and Pakistan, the interference of the weather will be negligible and the fans will get to see a great and exciting match.
Last year, all the matches of the World Cup and IPL were played here, which used to start at 6 pm. It is often said about this pitch that it supports the team chasing the target more. There are definitely some difficulties in the beginning but due to dew, spin bowlers may find it difficult. The Dubai International Cricket Stadium pitch has been proving to be helpful for the batsmen and we hope to see the same thing happen this time around. The average score here is 150 runs and the captain who wins the toss prefers to bowl first. Fast bowlers can also expect good bounce from the wicket. The second innings becomes more suitable for batting as the initial moisture dries up.
