New Delhi: India and Pakistan kicked off their 2022 Asia Cup campaign with an intense clash at the Dubai International Stadium on August 28, Sunday.
Sunday’s clash might just be a trailer of what is to come as the two teams can end up facing each other as many as three times in the competition. They have faced each other once in their opening matches when India thrashed Pakistan by 5 wickets.
