The 2022 Asia Cup series is going on in full swing. Afghanistan is the first team in the series to advance to the Super 4 division. On the other hand, the Indian team defeated Pakistan in the first match.
The Asia Cup 2022 match between India and Pakistan was held in a lively manner last Sunday. In this game that was thrilling until the last over, India secured victory due to Pandya’s cool finish.
Batting first, Pakistan scored 147 runs and lost all wickets in 19.5 overs. Kohli 35, Jadeja 35 and Hardik Pandya scored 33 runs in the Indian team. The Indian team scored 148 runs for the loss of 5 wickets in 19.4 overs.
Pressure.. Tik Tik till the last second.. How did India defeat Pakistan? 5 great reasons!
After defeating Pakistan, the Indian team will face the Hong Kong team today. The Hong Kong team came into this series struggling in the last minute. It will be very easy for India to beat Hong Kong today. But sometimes some Kathucutti teams beat big teams and give shocks in such cup series. Unexpected small teams can beat strong teams like India.
Due to this, the Indian team has to play very carefully today. Since the Indian team played well in the last match, there is no need to change the team in today’s match. However, there are chances of Rohit Sharma planning to give some other players a chance. Mainly to get Bandy back into the team. Or there are chances of playing with Dinesh Karthik.
With KL Rahul out of form, there is a good chance that he will return to form today. On the other hand, Hong Kong team does not need 4 fast bowlers. Due to this, there are rumors that Avesh Khan may be given a break today. There are also chances of Ashwin coming into the team instead. That means three spin bowlers like Chahal, Jadeja, Ashwin and three passive bowlers like Pandya, Bhuvneshwar and Arshideep are likely to play.
Today is an important day for Kohli. Kohli hasn’t played with the smaller teams in recent times. If he gets a chance to bat in today’s match, he can definitely return to form. Kohli had little of his old aggression in the last match. If Kohli bowls with the same aggressiveness today, chances are he will return to form. Hot on the heels of their win against Pakistan, the Indian team plans to win today and advance to the Super 4 match.
