2nd Match Pak vs Ind:
The Arch-rivals or Traditional rivals, India & Pakistan, will play the second match of Asia Cup 2022 on 28 August 2022 at 7:00 Pm. These matches will happen in Dubai International Stadium with more than 25,000 people. Tickets to this match were sold out as fans are traveling to Dubai for this match from all over the world, especially India & Pakistan. Most of the residents of Dubai are from Pakistan & India too.
With the rivalry between these two countries for almost a century, the Pakistan vs. India match is always more exciting than any other team’s match. The main reason is the enthusiasm of the people living in these countries worldwide—for Example, the ratings or viewership of an India Vs. Pakistan’s match against any other match is off the charts. The last main event match between these two teams happened in 2021 in the Twenty20 World Cup. It broke the overall viewership records as it had more than 167 Million viewers, creating history. Pakistan won that match. The stadium was full of Indian and Pakistani fans supporting their teams.
The Arch-rivals have locked horns against each other many times, with amazing yet unbelievable outcomes. Let’s see the overall performance of these two teams against each other over the past, not only in the Asia Cup but in other tournaments such as the Champions Trophy, Twenty20 Worlds Cup & ODI Worlds Cup. India has more wins against Pakistan. But, in the last five years, Pakistan has changed its course regarding its interest as it Dominates India more often.
As for the Asia Cup, both teams have played against each other 15 times. Starting in 1984, the first Asia Cup was played. Let’s see what the outcomes were.
- India won by 54 runs against Pakistan in 1984.
- India won by 4 wickets against Pakistan in 1988.
- Pakistan won by 97 runs against India in 1995.

- Pakistan won by 1 wicket against India in 2014.
- India won by 8 wickets against Pakistan in 2018.
- India won by 9 wickets against Pakistan in 2018.
If we see the history of Asia Cup matches played between India & Pakistan. Suppose we put the two matches aside, which did not happen. For the remaining 13 matches, India won 8 of them, and Pakistan won 5 of them, making India the overall winner of these matches.
As I have mentioned before, for the past 3 to 5 years, the Pakistani team has been giving the Indian Team a hard time by winning significant matches and tournaments such as the Champion’s trophy. But we cannot underestimate the Indian Team as well. India holds 2 Worlds Cups, and Pakistan has 1.

The top bowler of the Pakistani Team, Shaheen Shah Afridi, is not playing in the Pakistan XI.
He was against India due to his knee injury but is in Dubai with his team. He is looking forward to coming back in the next matches of Asia Cup 2022. His knee injury was caused while the first Test match against Sri Lanka in Galle in July, which he sustained during that match. He is going through Knee treatment in Dubai. Many team members of the Indian Team, including Virat Kohli, also met with Shaheen Shah Afridi and inquired about his injured knee.
Another News comes up as another Pakistani team player dropped out just before the days of the Asia Cup 2022 match. The dropped-out player was also a bowler named Mohammad Wasim Jr. he was ruled out of the tournament due to a left side strain on Friday during the practice session. He was rushed to the hospital for an MRI, where they confirmed the injury. Then Hassan Ali replaced him with the team, another great bowler on the Team for Asia Cup 2022. As for the PCB Pakistan Cricket Board, Mohammad Wasim Jr might make a comeback to the Team for England’s Tour to Pakistan.
As for Pakistan, the harsh and extreme Weather Conditions in Pakistan, including heavy rains and floods, affect more than 60% of the country. Causing less the viewership of this match, I am sure their enthusiasm and love for cricket and their team will remain the Same. May God helps them in these challenging times.
Conclusion & Predictions:
Either team is capable of defeating any team in the world. Both teams have many young and experienced players on their teams and played against each other in the past. Even these teams have an idea of their strengths and weaknesses. Both teams are in good form, and anything can happen; we have to wait for a little.
Let’s hope that the best man wins and Do enjoy the match too.
