Two Asian giants India and Pakistan are all set to lock horns with each other for one more time in the Asia Cup 2022. Both teams produced a nail-biting thriller when they faced each other in their first group match of the tournament. Indian side won that match by five wickets on the backs of all-round brilliance from star all-rounder Hardik Pandya. He scalped three wickets with the ball and then also played a match-defining knock of 33 runs to cross the line for India.
Other than Pandya, former skipper Virat Kohli and star batter Suryakumar Yadav has also performed exceptionally well for team India in the ongoing edition of the tournament. They both played the half-centurion knocks in the last match against Hong Kong.
So, taking this discussion a bit ahead, here we’ll have a look at the three players who can make a difference against Pakistan in the first match of the super-4.
Former skipper and senior batter Virat Kohli was enduring a poor run of form with the bat for the last couple of months before the current edition of the Asia Cup. But he has shown amazing form in the tournament during the group stage against Pakistan and Hong Kong.
Notably, Virat is currently the highest run-scorer for India in the ongoing 15th edition of the Asia Cup. He has scored 35 and 59 not-out in the group matches against Pakistan and Hong Kong respectively. Indian fans will be expecting an outstanding outing from Kohli in the first super-4 match of India against Pakistan. He can make a difference in the match with his batting.
