Mohammad Rizwan played a crucial inning for Pakistan and was successful in getting his team to victory. Pakistan’s wicketkeeper-batsman scored 71 runs off 41 balls to lead his team to victory in 182 run chase.
Team India Made Two Changes To The Playing XI
In the first match between India and Pakistan, Rishabh Pant was dropped from the XI and Dinesh Karthik kept the stumps. Hardik Pandya returned to the squad after the rest and replaced Dinesh Karthik. After Ravindra Jadeja’s injury, Deepak Hooda and Ravi Bishnoi were named in the playing XI for the first time in the Asia Cup 2022.
Virat Kohli Scored Match Saving Fifty
Virat Kohli has scored his second half-century in the last two games. Ex-Indian Skipper scored 60 runs off 44 balls with the help of four fours and a six. Hardik Pandya, who was the hero in the last match, could not even open his account. All-rounder was dismissed by Mohammed Hasnain and Mohammad Nawaz took a simple catch. Hardik returned to the pavilion without scoring after playing two balls.
Wicket-keeper batsman Rishabh Pant was also dismissed after scoring 14 runs off 12 balls. He was sent to the pavilion by Shadab Khan on the last ball of the 14th over. The left-handed batsman played the wrong shot at the wrong time as he tried to play a reverse sweep, but the ball went straight into the hands of the point fielder.

Some of his photos and videos are going viral on social media. In this, Rohit is seen scolding Pant in the dressing room for playing a poor shot.
Rishabh Pant की क्लास लगाते कप्तान Rohit Sharma. ऐसा लग रहा है #RishabhPant से #RohitSharma कह रहे हों कि क्या जरूरत थी भी तुझे ऐसे आड़ा-तिरछा बल्ला घुमाने की. 😄 #AsiaCupT20 #AsiaCup2022 #IndianCricketTeam #IndiaVsPak #IndiaVsPakistan #AsiaCup #India #PakistanVsIndia pic.twitter.com/Pp0Vc4Nw3O
