Captain Rohit Sharma took the responsibility once again with the bat and made sure the team crosses the line with an unbeaten knock! Rohit Sharma averages 121.50 in 7 matches as captain in ODIs!#INDvPAK #AsiaCup2018 pic.twitter.com/x4zB0IohVY — AsianCricketCouncil (@ACCMedia1) September 23, 2018
In today’s Super Four match in Asia Cup 2018, India will lock horns with Pakistan at Dubai International Stadium in United Arab Emirates today. Pakistan are recovering from a draining contest against Afghanistan that they somehow managed to win. It was a shoddy performance, both in the field and with the bat, and despite all the unpredictability that surrounds Pakistan team, it is certain that if they play like that against India the result will be different. On the other hand, Indian cricket Team performed superbly after a stiff challenge from Hong Kong in their first Asia Cup match. So, after the drubbing India handed their arch-rivals on Wednesday, can Pakistan counter India's spin attack to avert yet another one-sided contest?
