Before their Asia Cup campaign, Pakistan had suffered two injuries. Due to a knee injury, their star pacer Shaheen Shah Afridi was forced to withdraw from the competition. Mohammad Wasim Junior was also unable to participate because of a side strain.

Mohammad Wasim sustained the injury while bowling in a Pakistan practice session, while Shaheen picked up the injury while fielding during the first Test match against Sri Lanka in Galle.

Shaheen was replaced by Mohammad Hasnain, and Mohammad Wasim was replaced by Hasan Ali on the Pakistani team.

Naseem Shah, a youthful bowler, was given his first T20I cap on the other hand, ahead of the encounter against India at the Dubai International Stadium on Sunday.

We have all the ability to win the tournament: Moin Khan

Moin Khan stated that Pakistan can win the continental cup if they take an “aggressive approach” and “play together,” after breaking the “stigma that India is too big a team” for them. It is worth mentioning that Pakistan has only won two Asia Cup titles to date.

“The myth that India is too powerful for us to beat has been dispelled. They have also made a lot of changes, and their team is not as powerful. We can win the championship if we take an aggressive approach and play collectively “ said Moin as quoted by Cricket Pakistan.

All-rounder Hardik Pandya performed at his peak during the match, leading Team India to a five-wicket victory over Pakistan in the Asia Cup Group A encounter on Sunday at the Dubai International Stadium.
