Pakistan won the toss and elected to bat first. However, this is the trend of Asia Cup 2018 where the toss has always favored for Pakistan. The opening duo Imam-ul-Haq and Fakhar Zaman couldn’t put an effort to score runs for the first wicketa as MS Dhoni took a fantastic rewiev.
Pakistan lost their first wicket in the last ball of the 8th over scoring 24 runs on the board. The Duo again failed to put pressure on the Indian bowlers. However, Indian pacers, Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Jasprit Bumrah opened up the bowling session brilliantly.
Moreover, Rohit Sharma and Co. decided to take on the spin attack against the opposition and if favored India. Chahal makes a breakthrough in his very fast over. He makes an LBW to Imam-ul-Haq.
Furthermore, the ball was pitching on middle and off, turning back in towards the left-hander, Imam-ul-Haq.
He gets his front foot across, reads the leg-break off the pitch, and it is too late by then. Moreover, he tries to get the bat back in line to make contact with the ball but the front-pad gets in the way and that has struck him in front. He had managed a decent stride forward, but that is hitting the top of middle and leg
However, the umpire has given that not out (LBW) and India have taken the review. After the prechecks, it was seen that it was Not a no-ball. the leg-break turns past the inside edge and there was no bat on that according to ultra-edge from Imam-ul-Haq bat.
However, Indian spinner makes the breakthrough in the match and Pakistan will try to do some well in the match to put the pressure on the opposition.
Here is the Twitter reaction:
Bro Imam ul haq is more talented than Sourav ganguly.

Seriously speaking, imam ul haq, has no place in the squad. Its high time to drop him dropped before fingers are raised on inzamam ul haq. #PakvsInd
