India vs Pakistan, Asia Cup 2022 Super 4 Highlights: Pakistan managed to pull off an extraordinary chase to get back at India in the second of a possible three matches between the two traditional rivals in the 2022 Asia Cup. Virat Kohli's 60 off 44 balls and two misfields in the end from Fakhar Zaman took India to 181/7. Pakistan were firmly on the backfoot for much of the first half of their chase, with India dismissing captain Babar Azam and Fakhar before they could do too much damage. However, Mohammad Nawaz and Mohammad Rizwan changed the course of the game with a 73-run partnership in just 41 balls. Asif Ali then almost took Pakistan home after Arshdeep Singh dropped a dolly off him. However, Arshdeep dismissed him with just two balls to spare and with Pakistan still need two runs to win. Pakistan then ran hard and took two runs off the next ball to win the match by five wickets.

    India vs Pakistan, Asia Cup Live: That's that!

    Virat Kohli has come out in the post-match press conference and we will surely have a number of stories on whatever he is going to say on this website. Stay tuned for those but this is all from us here on this blog. We thought the last one was a great match, this one turned out to be even better. Wonder how it is going to be if these two teams meet again in the final. Food for thought! Goodbye!

    India vs Pakistan Live: Mohammad Nawaz wins player of the match

    "For a left arm spinner, it's important to stick to the basic line and length. If one or two balls turn, that puts doubt into the batters' minds. After that, I try and stick to line and length. We needed 10 runs per over when I walked in to bat so I knew I had to attack every chance I got. My mind was clear that I'd hit out at every ball in my zone. I didn't try and overplay, which you sometimes can when you're under pressure."

    IND vs PAK, Asia Cup Live: Rohit Sharma on Kohli

    The form is brilliant (talking about Kohli). Needed someone to bat long when the others were getting out. He batted with that tempo as well. Virat getting that score was crucial from the team's point of view. Wickets of Hardik and Rishabh was not needed at that time. But we want to play with an open mindset. While taking that approach you'll not always have success.

    India vs Pakistan, Asia Cup Live: Rohit Sharma on India's younger players

    "It's a high pressure game and you have to be at it every time. A game like that can take a lot out of you, but we were quite calm at the backend, even in the middle when Rizwan and Nawaz had a partnership going. But it went too long and they batted brilliantly.

    "Games like this can bring the best out of players. There will be times when they will be challenged and things might not go their way. There's potential in the players and they've done it in the past. There's class in the opposition team as well."

    Asia Cup Live: Rizwan the colossus

    He has been Pakistan's highest scorer in six of their last seven innings. He was injured today and he was in significant pain in punishing conditions in Dubai.If Babar doesn't get you, Rizwan will.

    IND vs PAK Live: Rizwan talks

    “The whole world is watching this match. This game is as valuable as a final. Every player will try to go give his 100%. The plan, as always, was to score against the new ball with one of us (himself and Babar Azam) batting long. I tried to stay till the end. We know our strengths, we have depth in our batting, we have power-hitters who are capable of hitting around 45 runs off the last four overs. So we didn't panic."

    IND vs PAK, Asia Cup Live: PAKISTAN BEAT INDIA BY 5 WICKETS

    The thriller ends in Pakistan's favour. Arshdeep misses his yorker, Iftikhar Ahmed hits it down the ground and the two batters run for their lives. They make it to the crease as Arshdeep knocks off the bails at the non-striker's end in frustration, sparking wild celebrations in the Pakistan dressing room and in the stands. What an extraordinary run chase this was. We had mentioned around the 12th over mark that getting back in this game would take an extraordinary effort from the Pakistanis. They have only done that and more. Mohammad Rizwan the protagonist of the chase, Mohammad Nawaz was the side kick and Asif Ali played an all-important cameo. Pakistan have won this game with just one ball to spare. 

  • Sep 04, 2022 11:22 PM IST

    India vs Pakistan, Asia Cup Live: OUT! A late twist?

    Asif Ali falls to Arshdeep Singh! Some level of redemption for the young pacer, this match is not for the faint of heart. Pakistan need two to win off two balls. Arshdeep had managed to get a dot ball after that previous boundary. Sensational stuff!

  • Sep 04, 2022 11:18 PM IST

    India vs Pakistan Live: FOUR! Asif Ali down the ground

    Pakistan need two to win off four. Picked up the attempted yorker that becomes a low full toss over the bowler's head to the boundary. Rizwan jumping up and down in the balcony. What a chase this is!

  • Sep 04, 2022 11:14 PM IST

    Asia Cup Live: FOUR! 19 runs in the 19th over!

    Pakistan need just 7 to win in the last over. Arshdeep Singh bowling it. Chance for him to redeem himself and much more if he defends this with one of the two batters in the middle there being one of the best finishers in the world. India have an extra fielder in the circle because of the over rate as well. Pakistan are firm favourites. 

  • Sep 04, 2022 11:13 PM IST

    India vs Pakistan Live: FOUR! Khushdil Shah now

    It is that stage of the game where the equation can shift wildly from one way to another in just two deliveries. Khushdil pulls a short one from Bhuvi and Pakistan now need just 12 off 8! Pakistan's game to lose. 

  • Sep 04, 2022 11:10 PM IST

    Asia Cup Live: SIX! ASIF ALI!

    Oh a shot to remember. He just picks Bhuvneshwar up back over his head and into the stands behind the bowler. Pakistan need 18 to win in 10 balls!

  • Sep 04, 2022 11:06 PM IST

    IND vs PAK Live: DROPPED! Arshdeep drops a dolly!

    That is extraordinary. Rohit Sharma gives Arshdeep an earful after that. Asif Ali goes for a slog sweep, ends up getting a top edge and it nicely floats to Arshdeep at short third. An easy catch, and Arshdeep seemed to take it as that, and he ended up dropping it and looking quite silly. He throws the ball back, has a slight smile on his face, which makes Wasim Akram say he shouldn't have that on him either. 

  • Sep 04, 2022 11:01 PM IST

    IND vs PAK, Asia Cup Live: Into the last 3 overs

    Right then, we have another India-Pakistan thriller in our hands. For 15 years there were one-sided matches between these two sides and now we have got too nail-biters back to back. Ravi Bishnoi comes in to bowl the 18th. Pakistan need 34 to win from 18, they have the dangerous Asif Ali at the non-striker's end and Khushdil Shah is on strike. 

  • Sep 04, 2022 10:55 PM IST

    India vs Pakistan, Asia Cup Live: GONE! IT'S RIZWAN!

    Well, well, well, Hardik Pandya was luckless just a few minutes ago and he has now got the big wicket of Mohammad Rizwan, has the game completely turned in India's favour now? Slow one from Pandya, Rizwan can't get the distance despite getting off the middle of the bat. He holes out at long-on and a brilliant innings comes to an end. 

    Rizwan c Yadav b Pandya 71 (51), Pakistan 147/4, need 35 to win in 19 balls

  • Sep 04, 2022 10:46 PM IST

    India vs Pakistan Live: GONE! Is that the turning point?

    Bhuvneshwar Kumar delivers and Mohammad Nawaz goes after smashing 42 in 20 balls. Partnership between him and Rizwan ends at 73 off just 41 balls. Sort of a length, Nawaz looks to go down the ground. The ball was in the air for a while and Hooda does well to keep his eyes in it all the way. 

    Nawaz c Hooda b Kumar 42 (20), Pakistan 136/3 in 15.3 overs 

  • Sep 04, 2022 10:44 PM IST

    Asia Cup Live: Pakistan 135/2 in 15 overs 

    Partnership of 72 off 38 balls between Rizwan and Nawaz. Nawaz is on 42 off just 18 and Rizwan has made 60 in 44. India firmly on the backfoot now and desperately need a wicket here. 

  • Sep 04, 2022 10:42 PM IST

    IND vs PAK Live: FOUR! Rizwan goes after Chahal now

    Length delivery outside off, lots and lots of room for Rizwan to rock back and cut it through backward point. What a fight back this has been from these two. 

  • Sep 04, 2022 10:40 PM IST

    IND vs PAK, Asia Cup Live: FOUR AGAIN!

    Tossed up delivery down the leg side now, Nawaz sweeps it to the fine leg boundary. Make that 55 need to win off 34 now, that gap is closing quite quickly now.  

  • Sep 04, 2022 10:38 PM IST

    India vs Pakistan, Asia Cup Live: FOUR! Nawaz going to town here!

    Chahal tosses it up, Nawaz picks it up and goes over the deep backward square leg. Pakistan need 59 to win off 35 now. 

  • Sep 04, 2022 10:36 PM IST

    India vs Pakistan Live: FOUR! No luck for Pandya today

    Short from Pandya, Nawaz goes for a pull but only gets a top edge. Lucky for him that it flies over the keeper for a four right behind him. All going Pakistan's way at the moment and Rohit has a lot to think about now. 

  • Sep 04, 2022 10:34 PM IST

    Asia Cup Live: FOUR! Nawaz timing them to perfection!

    Pandya goes full outside off, Nawaz hits over cover for four. He is on 28 off 12 balls and these two are dragging Pakistan back into this match. 

  • Sep 04, 2022 10:29 PM IST

    IND vs PAK Live: 50 for Rizwan!

    He is hurting from the knock on his knee that he sustained earlier while keeping but he has managed to reach a half century in 37 balls. This is quite a colossal effort from Rizwan and he is slowly getting Pakistan back into this chase alongwith Mohammad Nawaz. 

  • Sep 04, 2022 10:23 PM IST

    India vs Pakistan, Asia Cup Live: SIX! Nawaz doing his job

    He has been brought on to go after the spinners and that is what he is doing at the moment. Lifts Bishnoi over deep mid-wicket for his second six. Partnership is now up to 31 off 17 and this will start worrying India now. 

  • Sep 04, 2022 10:19 PM IST

    India vs Pakistan Live: SIX! Rizwan first ball after drinks!

    That was a poor delivery from Chahal. Not the kind of delivery that entices batters, just a poor one. Nice juicy full toss for Rizwan to feed on and he whips out one of signature pick up shots for his second maximum. 

  • Sep 04, 2022 10:18 PM IST

    Asia Cup Live: Drinks break, Pakistan 76/2 in 10 overs

    India were 93/3. They stay one wicket and about 20 runs ahead of Pakistan in this chase. Pakistan have their hopes firmly pinned on Rizwan and it is safe to say that we have already come to a point where we can say that this will become a real thriller if Pakistan can get close from this point. 

  • Sep 04, 2022 10:13 PM IST

    IND vs PAK Live: SIX! 

    Nawaz promoted up the order and delivering for now. He started off with a four off Chahal and now smacks a six off Pandya. Pakistan need much more of this. 

  • Sep 04, 2022 10:08 PM IST

    IND vs PAK, Asia Cup Live: OUT! Chahal delivers!

    OUT! Chahal delivers, Fakhar Zaman goes for an 18-ball 15! Fakhar is a dangerous customer but he has been completely nullified by India here. Chahal laid a trap and Fakhar bit. Slow delivery that Fakhar tries to hit straight down the ground. He ends up putting into the hands of Kohli at long-on. 

    Fakhar Zaman c Kohli b Chahal 15 (18), Pakistan 63/2 in 8.4 overs

  • Sep 04, 2022 10:00 PM IST

    India vs Pakistan, Asia Cup Live: FOUR! 50 up for Pakistan!

    Gets to the pitch of the ball with some good footwork, does Rizwan, and hits it through mid-off. Kohli intercepts at the boundary but the ball rolls from underneath him and touches the boundary. He should have stopped that one. 

  • Sep 04, 2022 09:59 PM IST

    India vs Pakistan Live: End of powerplay, Pakistan 44/1

    India at this stage were 62/2. They are clearly ahead at the moment and will be prioritising wickets. Pakistan have some truly dangerous batters yet to come apart from the ones they have in the middle now. Yuzvendra Chahal comes in. 

  • Sep 04, 2022 09:55 PM IST

    Asia Cup Live: SIX! What a shot from Rizwan!

    The indomitable Mohammad Rizwan gets down on one knee and picks it up over square leg for a brilliant six. This is some shot from the Pakistan wicketkeeper. 

  • Sep 04, 2022 09:50 PM IST

    IND vs PAK Live: FOUR! First runs for Fakhar Zaman

    Saw that third man was up and went for the slash off Pandya through backward point for his first boundary. That is also his first runs, after facing four dot balls. 

  • Sep 04, 2022 09:45 PM IST

    IND vs PAK, Asia Cup Live: OUT! THAT'S THAT FOR BABAR!

    Babar had tried to jab it through the midwicket but hit straight to Rohit Sharma standing there. He was looking good, the Pakistan captain, but no big score from today as well. 

    Babar Azam c Rohit Sharma b Ravi Bishnoi 14 (10), Pakistan 22/1 in 3.4 overs

  • Sep 04, 2022 09:44 PM IST

    India vs Pakistan, Asia Cup Live: Is it the end for Babar?

    Babar has hit it straight to midwicket and Bishnoi seems to have got the biggest Pakistan wicket in his first over. The Indians celebrate but then the umpire asks Babar to stop as Bishnoi's front foot gets checked. It took a few seconds but then the umpire does ask him to walk along!

  • Sep 04, 2022 09:40 PM IST

    India vs Pakistan Live: FOUR! Babar yet again, PAK 19/0 in 3 overs

    Short from Bhuvi, not too much pace on it, Babar smashes it in front of square for his second four. Rohit brings in Bishnoi for the third over. 

  • Sep 04, 2022 09:34 PM IST

    IND vs PAK Live: Pakistan 9/0 in 1st over

    India had scored 11 in the first over. Rizwan does have a dodgy knee remember, wonder how long he will be able to go with it. It is quite extraordinary that he is out there in the first place. 

  • Sep 04, 2022 09:31 PM IST

    IND vs PAK, Asia Cup Live: FOUR! Beauty from Babar

    Bhuvneshwar goes down the leg side, Babar whips it past midwicket for his first four. We haven't really seen the best of Babar Azam in this tournament and how India would be hoping he would not let lose in this match. There were a couple of play-and-misses in the two balls before this shot. 

  • Sep 04, 2022 09:28 PM IST

    India vs Pakistan, Asia Cup Live: FOUR! Rizwan starts off in style

    Off the first ball itself. Short and wide from Bhuvneshwar and Rizwan cuts it past point for four. That's a nice way to start a 182-run chase. 

  • Sep 04, 2022 09:24 PM IST

    India vs Pakistan Live: The misfields

    Rauf's attempted yorker had become a low full toss and Bishnoi went for a slice past point. Fakhar charged in from the deep but the ball spinner past him and went for four. The sixth delivery was almost an action replay, except this time Bishnoi couldn't keep it down. Fakhar came in again for a catch, overruns and had to hop. He ends up palming it for a four. 

  • Sep 04, 2022 09:24 PM IST

    Asia Cup Live: Shadab Khan talks

    “We made a good comeback after a quick start and we did well in the middle overs as well. I try to keep things simple, which is the toughest thing in cricket. Earlier, I had complicated it, which resulted an injury as well. The last two boundaries can definitely hurt but we will be aiming for a good start to the chase. The pitch is a lot better, the ball is coming on to the bat nicely.”

  • Sep 04, 2022 09:16 PM IST

    IND vs PAK Live: BACK TO BACK MISFIELDS FROM PAK! INDIA 181/7 IN 20 OVERS!

    Well, well, well, Pakistan hardly made any mistakes throughout this innings in this innings but they have committed blunders off the last two balls of it. Ravi Bishnoi has hit two fours in the only two balls he has faced throughout this innings. Haris Rauf visibly frustrated, he bowled a nearly perfect last over but the fielders slipped up at the crucial time. How expensive will that prove to be for Pakistan?

  • Sep 04, 2022 09:14 PM IST

    IND vs PAK, Asia Cup Live: OUT! That's the end for Kohli

    A run out to end a brilliant innings. But India might just rue this last over. Only one run as come in the first four balls now. 

    Kohli run out (Asif Ali) 60 (44), India 173/7 in 19.4 overs. 

     

  • Sep 04, 2022 09:12 PM IST

    India vs Pakistan, Asia Cup Live: Just one run in 1st 3 balls

    And that run has come from a wide first ball. Kohli refused a single off the second delivery and was pinned in the crease with an excellent yorker from Haris Rauf. 

  • Sep 04, 2022 09:11 PM IST

    India vs Pakistan Live: India 172/6 in 19 overs 

    Kohli has to put on his finishing hat now. He is on strike, Bhuvneshwar Kumar is at the other end. He is on 59 off 30 and he has gone past Rohit Sharma for most half centuries in T20 internationals. 

  • Sep 04, 2022 09:08 PM IST

    Asia Cup Live: OUT! Hooda falls 

    Another great catch from a Pakistan fielder. They have been on point today really, even avoiding a collision drop. Slower one from Naseem, Hooda goes aerial. The ball was in the air forever it seems, Nawaz settles under it at long-on, keeps it in his eyesight all along and takes the catch. 

  • Sep 04, 2022 09:04 PM IST

    IND vs PAK Live: SIX! KOHLI BRINGS UP HIS HALF CENTURY IN STYLE!

    149kph from Mohammad Hasnain, Kohli moves a little to the off-side and smashes it over deep midwicket for a maximum. This has been some innings from the former India captain. It is hot and humid there and he has darted around the pitch in addition to hitting boundaries at regular intervals. He takes off the helmet and points to the India badge to celebrate. 

  • Sep 04, 2022 09:02 PM IST

    IND vs PAK, Asia Cup Live: FOUR! Hooda enacts a scene from The Matrix

    Short from Hasnain, into Hooda's face and the batter ends up arching his back almost to the point that it's parrallel to the ground and ramps it over the wicketkeeper's head. Hooda is on the ground after that shot and Kohli is punching his bat in delight. 

  • Sep 04, 2022 08:59 PM IST

    India vs Pakistan, Asia Cup Live: Into the last three overs, India 148/5

    Kohli is on 47 off 34, Hooda is on six off eight. India seem to be a bit more conscious now of their shots, probably because there are no recognised batters after this. 

  • Sep 04, 2022 08:56 PM IST

    India vs Pakistan Live: FOUR! Extraordinary from Hooda!

    Rauf sends it in just fuller than good length and into the right hander. Hooda somehow squeezes it out from near his foot for what ended up being a cover drive for a four. 

  • Sep 04, 2022 08:53 PM IST

    Asia Cup Live: IND 135/5 in 15 overs 

    Rizwan has got back up and seems to be moving around fine now. Right then, Kohli is on 40 off 28 balls and Hooda has faced 2 deliveries for no runs. Shadab Khan has led the way in Pakistan applying the breaks on this Indian innings. 

  • Sep 04, 2022 08:47 PM IST

    IND vs PAK Live: Mohammad Rizwan in trouble

    Bouncer from Mohammad Hasnain first up for new batter Deepak Hooda. He looks to ramp it over the keeper but misses it. It goes well out of Rizwan's reach as well and the ball goes behind for four byes. Rizwan gave it his all to catch it and lands awkwardly on his right leg. He looks like he is in a world of pain and the physio comes out to have a look. “He is a fighter, this boy,” says Wasim Akram in the commentary box. 

  • Sep 04, 2022 08:44 PM IST

    IND vs PAK, Asia Cup Live: GONE! 2-ball duck for Pandya!

    What a catch from Nawaz! Hardik Pandya, India's main man really, has gone for a two-ball duck. 

    Pandya c Mohammad Nawaz b Mohammad Hasnain 0 (2), India 131/5 in 14.4 overs

  • Sep 04, 2022 08:39 PM IST

    India vs Pakistan, Asia Cup Live: OUT! Meek dismissal from Pant

    Catching practice for backward point to who Pant reverse sweeps to. Googly from Shadab, Pant had got lucky with an inside edge that ran to the boundary off the last ball. This time, he reverse sweeps a ball that he could have hit anywhere else really, soft dismissal for him and now Pandya walks in. 

    Pant c Asif Ali b Shadab Khan 14 (12), India 126/4 in 13.5 overs

  • Sep 04, 2022 08:35 PM IST

    India vs Pakistan Live: 13 runs off the 13th over

    A good partnership blossoming between Pant and Kohli, something every Indian fan would have dreamed to see in a T20I. They have put up 27 off 20 balls, India are 118/3 in 13 overs. Kohli is on 33 off 23, Pant on nine off as many. 

  • Sep 04, 2022 08:34 PM IST

    Asia Cup Live: FOUR! Pant gets into the act!

    That's an exceptional shot really. Length ball from Naseem, he pulls it away to the deep square leg boundary. He has managed to keep that down all the way. 

  • Sep 04, 2022 08:31 PM IST

    IND vs PAK Live: FOUR! Classic Kohli!

    Naseem Shah brought back and Kohli welcomes him by taking a step down the track and creaming him through covers. No stopping that one once it pierces the in field. India are 109/3 in 12.1 overs 

  • Sep 04, 2022 08:26 PM IST

    India vs Pakistan, Asia Cup Live: 100 up for India

    It has come in 10.4 overs, India's fastest 100 against Pakistan. Pant getting his eye in so far just two runs off 3 balls, India are 101/3 after 11 overs.  

  • Sep 04, 2022 08:23 PM IST

    India vs Pakistan Live: FOUR! Beauty from Kohli!

    Short from Mohammad Hasnain for the second delivery of the 11th over and Kohli pulls it to backward square leg. He moves to 23 off 15. 

  • Sep 04, 2022 08:22 PM IST

    Asia Cup Live: Drinks break, India 93/3 in 10 overs

    They may have lost three wickets but the fact remains that a score of 93 with at two in-form batters to come is always a good sign. However, the worry could be that the two players in the middle, Pant and Kohli are not exactly in the best of touches.  This has been quite an exciting match so far and we are just past the first half of the first innings! 

  • Sep 04, 2022 08:19 PM IST

    IND vs PAK Live: OUT! SKY falls!

    OUT! Suryakumar perishes while trying to continue with the high-risk approach, Nawaz gets the wicket. He had no intention to keep that shot down and ends up holing out at square leg. Live by the sword, and die b

    Suryakumar c Asif Ali b Mohammad Nawaz 13 (10), India 91/3 in 9.4 overs

  • Sep 04, 2022 08:16 PM IST

    IND vs PAK, Asia Cup Live: India 88/2 in 9 overs

    Three singles after that boundary and that takes India to 88. The run rate dipped below 10 in this over, which is expected of course, but India would want these two to remain the middle. 

  • Sep 04, 2022 08:13 PM IST

    India vs Pakistan, Asia Cup Live: FOUR!

    Kohli can't keep down the cut shot and it falls just short of Naseem Shah. He had gone for the catch and it goes past him for Kohli's second boundary. He is on 14 off 9.  

  • Sep 04, 2022 08:08 PM IST

    IND vs PAK, Asia Cup Live: FOUR! A SKY special

    Bounces down the track, goes inside out and smashes Nawaz over extra-cover. That races to the boundary once it hits the ground. India continue the assault, their run rate remains above 10. 

  • Sep 04, 2022 08:08 PM IST

    India vs Pakistan, Asia Cup Live: FOUR! It's Kohli!

    Short and easy from Shadab, Kohli does not miss the opportunity. He pulls it wide of long-on for four. 

  • Sep 04, 2022 08:04 PM IST

    India vs Pakistan Live: FOUR! SKY off his first ball

    Starts off with a four straightaway, does Suryakumar Yadav. He slashes it away to deep backward point. This is a player in form all right. 

  • Sep 04, 2022 08:03 PM IST

    Asia Cup Live: GONE! KL Rahul goes now!

    OUT! Wicket off the first ball for Shadab Khan, KL Rahul goes down trying to continue the onslaught. He charges down the ground, gets to the pitch of the ball but can't get the required distance or elevation. He ends up holing out at long-on. 

    Rahul c Mohammad Nawaz b Shadab Khan 28 (20), India 62/2 in 6.1 overs

  • Sep 04, 2022 07:56 PM IST

    IND vs PAK Live: OUT! Almost a collision but Rohit goes

    GONE! Almost a collision between the Khushdil Shah and Fakhar Zaman but the former holds on and Rohit Sharma goes for a 16-ball 28. It's Haris Rauf who gets the wicket. The ball was in the air for hours and in that time there was almost an ugly clash between Khushdil and Fakhar. In the end, Fakhar pulled out at the right time and it becomes a moment to laugh at for the team.

    IND vs PAK, Asia Cup Live: FOUR! Hammered by Rahul, 50 up for India in 4.2 overs!

    Steps down the ground and hits it past the bowler for four. 50 opening partnership has come up in just 26 balls. This has been some hitting from Rohit and Rahul. 

  • Sep 04, 2022 07:51 PM IST

    India vs Pakistan, Asia Cup Live: India 46/0 after 4 overs

    Smart batting from India but this is still carnage. Well, a smart carnage then. After that six off the second ball Rohit and Rahul don't swing again at all throughout the over. Just two more singles and that makes it 12 from it. Pakistan now go to their spinner Mohammad Nawaz to stem the flow of runs. 

  • Sep 04, 2022 07:48 PM IST

    India vs Pakistan Live: SIX! Rohit continues the carnage

    Short from Rauf this time, Rohit sees that coming from a mile away of course, he just pulls it over cow corner for a gigantic six. India absolutely dictating play here. They are 44/1 in just 3.3 overs! 

  • Sep 04, 2022 07:47 PM IST

    Asia Cup Live: FOUR!

    Rohit smashes Haris Rauf to deep extra cover. The carnage continues, Rauf has been brought in for Hasnain but it doesn't seem to matter.  

  • Sep 04, 2022 07:46 PM IST

    IND vs PAK Live: SIX! Rahul goes aerial again, India 34/0 in three overs

    That is quite an un-Rahul shot. Almost swings his bat through the ball to send it sailing into the Dubai sky over the bowler's head for another six. India are absolultey rocking and rolling here. 

  • Sep 04, 2022 07:43 PM IST

    IND vs PAK, Asia Cup Live: SIX! Rahul goes off now

    Slow delivery from Naseem Shah first up in the third over but Rahul has seen that early. He leans into a cover drive and lifts it over wide long-off. The Indian openers have Pakistan's number at the moment. 

  • Sep 04, 2022 07:40 PM IST

    India vs Pakistan, Asia Cup Live: India 20/0 in 2 overs

    Talk about good starts. Rahul tried to go over the top as well, couldn't get the distance but the ball landed in no-man's land as well. India have decided to come out all guns blazing. 

  • Sep 04, 2022 07:39 PM IST

    India vs Pakistan Live: FOUR! Oh, beauty from Rohit

    Lifts Mohammad Hasnain over mid-on with typical Rohit Sharma elegance. The Indian captain looks like he is on song here, quite ominous for Pakistan. 

  • Sep 04, 2022 07:36 PM IST

    India vs Pakistan, Asia Cup Live: SIX! Rohit goes aerial now, India 11/0 after the 1st over

    Effortless from Rohit. Length delivery that comes up to his knees, Rohit simply picks it up and sends it flying over midwicket. India take 11 runs from the first over. 

  • Sep 04, 2022 07:34 PM IST

    India vs Pakistan Live: FOUR! Rohit off the mark in style!

    Rohit left the first ball he faced, which did move into him after pitching outside off. Then he charges down the pitch and smashes it over cover for the first boundary of the match. The captain is off the mark. 

  • Sep 04, 2022 07:32 PM IST

    India vs Pakistan, Asia Cup Live: Rahul off the mark

    He defends the first ball, no double golden duck then against Pakistan in this tournament. Then he cuts the second to third man to take a single.

    Asia Cup Live: Players gearing up 

    Rohit Sharma and KL Rahul had their pads on during the national anthem, surprises there. After the national anthem, the Pakistan players get into the huddle and wait for the Indian openers to walk out. They do eventually and we are now seconds away from the first ball. The stadium is absolutely heaving with fans wearing their colours standing beside each other. It's all cricket here.

    IND vs PAK, Asia Cup Live: India's daunting middle order

    After Virat Kohli at No.3 come Suryakumar Yadav, Rishabh Pant, Hardik Pandya and Deepak Hooda. It remains to be seen if the positions of Yadav and Pant or Pandya and Hooda will be reversed but that is quite a daunting set of batters for Pakistan to deal with.  

  • Sep 04, 2022 07:18 PM IST

    India vs Pakistan, Asia Cup Live: Hooda's batting 

    Cheteshwar Pujara says on ESPNCricinfo that it may have been Deepak Hooda's batting skills that helped him get the nod ahead of Axar Patel. On a pitch like this, the focus could be on the pacers and it means that Hooda may have to bowl about 2 overs at the most.

    Asia Cup Live: Babar wins toss round 2 

    It was India who had won the toss the last time around but they did have to slog it out till the last over to win the match. This was not quite the case in the match before that, which happened just under a year ago at the same ground in the T20 World Cup, where Babar Azam won the toss and then led his team to a 10-wicket win. 

  • Sep 04, 2022 07:09 PM IST

    IND vs PAK Live: Rohit Sharma's words

    “We would have bowled first, but now we need to play freely and assess a good score on this pitch. Momentum counts in this format, you've to be on the money from the start, not worry about external pressures. Injury is something we can't control, Jadeja has been ruled out and he's back home. It was a headache to select the playing XI - Hardik comes back. Deepak Hooda gets a game and so does Ravi Bishnoi.”

  • Sep 04, 2022 07:08 PM IST

    IND vs PAK, Asia Cup Live: What Babar Azam said

    “We will bowl first. The dew could be a factor, that's the reason we're bowling first. We had a lot of positives from the last match against India. The message is to play positively - one change for us with (Muhammad) Hasnain coming in”

    It is Dinesh Karthik and Avesh Khan who have been dropped apart from the injured Ravindra Jadeja sitting out. Needless to say, Rohit also said that Hardik Pandya returns to the squad.

    IND vs PAK, Asia Cup Live: Toss coming up

    Right then, it's 7pm and we will see Rohit Sharma and Babar Azam in the middle in a matter of seconds. 

  • Sep 04, 2022 06:52 PM IST

    India vs Pakistan, Asia Cup Live: Ticking down…

    There is of course one more player that India could play today and that is Deepak Hooda. He was being seen as a possible replacement for Virat Kohli, an incredible but equally credible option especially when Hooda scored that century against Ireland and memories of Kohli's T20 struggles were fresh. However, Kohli has looked quite good in the two innings that he played in this tournament and so if Hooda is played, it won't be as a top order batter by any stretch of imagination.

    India vs Pakistan Live: When Pandya collapsed

    It was during the last Asia Cup that Hardik Pandya's career was derailed by a back injury and Shastri who was head coach at the time, says that there was pin-drop silence in the dressing room at the time the all-rounder was stretchered off. “I walked over to the medical room and saw that he was lying flat on his back. He was not able to move, he was only able to move his head from side to side,” Shastri said. An extraordinary comeback from an extraordinary player.

    Right then, 20 minutes to go, we know what the pitch is like. What we don't know of course, is what is going to happen with the two teams. The last time, it was fairly obvious which players will turn up for India and it was more so the case for Pakistan. This time, we are yet to know who replaces Jadeja for India and Dahani for Pakistan.

    IND vs PAK, Asia Cup Live: The pitch

    There is grass, says Wasim Akram in his pitch report, albeit a bit drier than what we saw during Afghanistan's game against Sri Lanka. “There is a lot carry as well,” he says. Wasim also adds that it is no longer a case of “win the toss, win the match” which was how it went in the IPL and T20 World Cup in UAE last year, because there has been no dew in the games player here. But still, he would say that the team that wins the toss will want to bowl first.

    India vs Pakistan Live: Rahul Dravid's Saturday stand-up session

    Rahul Dravid answered a few questions, non-answered a few others and had the journalists in the room in fits with some during the pre-match presser yesterday. Most prominent of course is him being lost for politically correct words while describing the Pakistan pace attack. It was classic Dravid diplomacy on show, he was saying that India's pace attack is just as good and effective as Pakistan's while making sure that he did not offend those on the other side of the rivalry too much.

    India vs Pakistan Live: India's bowling unit

    Bhuvneshwar Kumar has been at his best while Arshdeep Singh continues to impress the legends of his trade. Hardik Pandya seemingly has no limits to his abilities or stamina now. However, that is where the good news ends for India as far as bowling is concerned in this tournament. While Avesh Khan's struggles have been discussed, it may be more worrying that Yuzvendra Chahal has not really impressed at all in this tournament. It might be down to the conditions of course but then India would do well to ensure that their premier spinner's confidence doesn't get dented too much here.

    Asia Cup Live: India's Suryarise

    Wrap your heads around this stat - Suryakumar Yadav boasts a strike rate of 177.51 in his 25-match T20I career, having scored 758 runs in 23 innings. AB de Villiers seems to have passed on his powers entirely to Suryakumar after the South African great hung up his boots because while the Mumbai batter has always been seen as a player to consider for India in limited overs cricket, he is now playing the kind of innings that the Proteas legend used to be known for in his prime. After his sensational 68 not out off an eye-watering 26 balls during India's match against Hong Kong, SKY, one of many mythical names he goes by, got a bow from King Kohli himself and a special mention from his head coach and batting legend Rahul Dravid during the pre-match presser for this game. That's the second time the word ‘legend’ has been used in this post that talks about Surya and that probably says it all.

    IND vs PAK Live: India's wobbly top

    India have adopted an approach in which they want to be aggressive right from the off. However, it is rather ironic that the players that they have for the task have all struggled to get going for much of the last two years. While Rahul and Kohli's struggles have been spoken about earlier, Rohit Sharma's has been a strange case in which he has managed to score the runs but hasn't been able to convert the good starts he has been able to get ever since he got back to limited overs cricket after a career-defining performance during the Test series in England last year. In this tournament, he hasn't been able to get good starts either in the two matches India have played. 

  • Sep 04, 2022 05:37 PM IST

    Asia Cup Live: Dinesh Karthik

    Just about a year ago, when Rohit Sharma and KL Rahul were making the England fast bowlers toil in their own backyard during India's five-Test series in the country, Dinesh Karthik was part of the Sky Sports commentary panel. He went on to become a regular in latter series to the extent that many started forgetting that he was yet to retire. A bumper IPL season came along where he found a new calling as arguably India's best finisher and he has been back with the national squad ever since, keeping out Rishabh Pant in this tournament at least. Regardless of whether DK actually goes and plays in the T20 World Cup or not, the fact remains that his is a truly inspirational story for any player who think they are now past their prime and cannot reinvent themselves. DK during his younger days did play as a top order bat in first class cricket, remember.

    India vs Pakistan Live: Pandya back

    Pandya was rested for the match against Hong Kong and he certainly deserved that considering he probably played the role of at least two players in the match against Pakistan. He had the Pakistan batters ducking and weaving while bowling, eventually ending with 3 wickets. Then he scored an unbeaten 33 off just 17 balls to take India to victory.

    Waqar Younis seemed to be jumping with joy in the commentary box when he was talking about the kind of assistance that fast bowlers were getting from the Dubai pitch during last Sunday's fixture between these two teams. Judging by what we saw during the Sri Lanka vs Afghanistan humdinger yesterday, it could be more of the same and the return of Hardik Pandya is only going to bolster India's resources in that departmenr.

    It seems KL Rahul is suffering from the England predicament in the way that his good times in the shorter formats correspond with bad times in Test cricket and vice-versa. Rahul has scored three centuries in the last six Tests he has played but his T20 strike rate has taken a beating in that same period. In this Asia Cup, Rahul's form has been forgettable at best, getting out for a golden duck against Pakistan first up and then getting out for a 39-ball 36 against minnows Hong Kong.

    It may have been over three years since Virat Kohli did something that had become so normal for him he had stopped celebrating them, score a century. But the fact remains that he is the biggest superstar in the cricket world and is the one around whom the cameras and opinions buzz. The buildup to this tournament for India was all about whether Virat Kohli can prove his worth and now, it is all about whether Virat Kohli can perform the way he did against Hong Kong against stronger sides. Meanwhile, Kohli has been joking around with his teammates, chatting with often star-struck opposition players and clicking selfies with the obviously star-struck fans. Wonder what new chapter of the Kohliwatch will be opened up today.

    Pakistan have the experienced Hasan Ali and the young firebrand Mohammad Hasnain to replace Dahani. It wasn't too long ago that Hasan Ali was regarded as the next big thing to come from Pakistan's seemingly endless line of express fast bowlers but the fact that he is not part of the regular playing XI in this tournament shows how far he has fallen down the pecking order. It remains to be seen if he gets the nod for today's match.

    IND vs PAK Live: How India can line up without Jadeja

    It wasn't too long ago that Jadeja was seemingly out of the Indian limited overs squad permanently alongwith Ravichandran Ashwin. Well, far from the case now. The absence of Jadeja means that India have a real conundrum in their hands. They could either play Axar Patel, whose bowling skills cannot be questioned but his batting skills, despite playing some encouraging knocks recently, cannot be compared to that of Jadeja. Or else, India could bring in Rishabh Pant to shore up the batting but then it will have to be seen if he keeps wickets and Dinesh Karthik goes back to being a regular fielder. Moreover, neither Pant nor Axar, or most players in the world really, can replace Jadeja as a fielder. 

  • Sep 04, 2022 04:20 PM IST

    IND vs PAK, Asia Cup Live: Ravindra Jadeja's injury

    Jadeja may not have played the most fluent of knocks but his 35 off 29 balls was crucial in India stemming the flow of wickets and eventually turning the game around in their favour. He also bowled 2 overs and gave just 11 runs. He is out because of his recurring knee injury flaring up and it was reported that he may undergo a major surgery that could keep him out of the T20 World Cup as well. However, head coach Rahul Dravid said that it is yet to be known till what time the all-rounder will be all out. India will miss him today for sure.
