We have yet another India-Pakistan clash today at our hands in today’s Super 4 game of the Asia Cup. Fans couldn’t have been more excited than this. This is such an old rivalry that people on both sides of the border always wait to see this contest in cricket.
And now, they get to watch two games of the neighbours in the Asia Cup with the T20 World Cup still a month to go. Now talking about their performances, India won both matches in the group stage and became the second team after Afghanistan to qualify for the Super 4s stage.
India have been a well-oiled unit so far but needs to work on some areas like batting which is a major concern in both games. Against Pakistan, India had a nearly close win while they defeated Hong Kong with ease.
Pakistan were defeated by India in the group stage but they then upstaged Hong Kong by a massive 155 runs to enter the Super 4s. They will now want to beat India in the Super 4s stage to get a positive start to this round.
A high-octane contest is again here for us to enjoy and show our cheer and support for our teams. So, fans, get ready to rock and roll today as you support your teams.
