Pakistan’s impressive start in the Asia Cup series was propelled by a convincing victory over Nepal in their opening match. Riding on the back of this momentum, Babar Azam’s men have chosen to stick with the same XI that delivered success in their previous outing.

The formidable Pakistan lineup boasts a blend of talent and experience, with Fakhar Zaman and Imam Ul Haq opening the innings, followed by the ever-reliable Babar Azam and Mohammad Rizwan. Agha Salman, Iftikhar Ahmed, and Shadab Khan add depth to the middle order, while the spin-bowling all-rounders provide versatility to both the batting and bowling departments.

Iftikhar Ahmed’s standout century against Nepal served as a testament to his form and earned him a secure spot in the XI. Pakistan’s top-ranked status in the MRF Tyres ICC Men’s ODI Team Rankings further solidifies their reputation as a force to be reckoned with in international cricket.

Heading into the clash against India, the Pakistan bowling attack is expected to be led by the menacing Shaheen Afridi, supported by the formidable pace duo of Naseem Shah and Haris Rauf. Spin options will be spearheaded by the dynamic Shadab Khan, complemented by Mohammad Nawaz and Salman Agha.

On the other side of the pitch, India faces intriguing decisions as they strategize for the clash. The absence of KL Rahul in the initial matches and the balance of the playing XI remain focal points for the Indian camp.
