IND vs PAK: 3 Reasons Why Pakistan Can Beat India In The Asia Cup 2022 Match. The Asia Cup 2022 starts on August 27 and the much-awaited India-Pakistan match will be played in Dubai on August 28. The arch-rivals are placed in group A. Group B has Afghanistan, Bangladesh and Sri Lanka. Asian Cricket Council chief Jay Shah shared the schedule on his official Twitter handle on August 2, Tuesday. 

India are the defending champions of the tournament. India won the previous edition of the Asia Cup in 2018 by defeating Bangladesh in the final. India has also won the most 7 titles out of 12 Asia Cup tournaments. Sri Lanka has won 5 titles while Pakistan accounts for 2 titles. Two teams from each group will make it to the Super 4 stage which starts on September 3. Thus there is a high probability of India and Pakistan meeting more than once in the tournament.

Pakistan has perhaps one of the best-settled opening pairs in this Asi Cup. Skipper Babar Azam will open along with Mohammad Rizwan. The duo chased down Inia’s score of 151 in the T20 World Cup last year and won the match by 10 wickets. Both the batters are adept at playing pace and spin with equal ease. For India to win the game, they need to dismiss the opening pair as quickly as possible.
