Pakistan is all set to take on the arch rivals India in their first game of the Asia Cup 2018. Pakistan and Indian team both have landed in the UAE and now some hard practice sessions will start. Pakistan team will have some tough practice sessions while the Indian team practice sessions are already under debate. As per some of the fans this is one of the main reasons Indian team has not done well. They don’t do much practice and hence their performances are going down day by day. During the England tour we saw that the Indian team failed to grab the opportunities and they batting was badly exposed. As a result they lost the series which they could have won as well. Pakistan team is good and strong. Their recent ODI performances are packed with some good efforts in both batting and bowling. So a lot of things are there in which Pakistan is looking better than India but then again you just cannot write off the Indian team that easily. They have got some match winning players.
Pakistan playing eleven will matter a lot. The men in green will try to get the best team in the ground to play against India. The Indian batting line is very strong and hence the Pakistan bowling needs to be double strong. At the moment the Pakistan bowling is strong and they have got the ability to dismantle the Indian batting line. Pakistan team did really well in their last ventures in Zimbabwe. So the confidence level of the Pakistan team will be very strong and their chances to win the event are there. As per the experts Pakistan and India have got a strong chance to win the cup. On the other hand there are teams like Sri Lanka, Bangladesh and Afghanistan. These teams can turn the tables as well. You cannot take them light as well.
Pakistan and India match will decide a lot of things in the event. The Indian batting line will face the Pakistani bowling. The spinners from both the teams will play a very handy role in the event as well. Indian spinners Kuldeep and Chahal both have done well in their limited overs career so far. The Pakistani spinners Shadab and Nawaz will play crucial roles for the Pakistan team as well. Faheem is there in the bunch as well. So there are a lot of all-rounders in the event as well. Afghanistan team will be a side to watch out for. They have players to defeat strong sides in the world. They have done that in the past and so Afghanistan is the dark horse of the Asia Cup 2018. Pakistan playing eleven in the first game will definitely be a strong side. Match will be against India hence there is no other option but to get down with the best side Pakistan can produce. Fans are hoping for a really good game of cricket between the two sides.
