Pak-Ind: Harsha Bhogle praises Naseem Shah
Shah swung the ball quickly in both directions, but he didn’t get a catch in his first five overs. He gave up 23 runs and also had an over with no runs.
When they played India, Pakistan won the toss and chose to bowl first.
Pakistan has sent out the same team for this high-stakes match. India, meanwhile, has made two changes. One of them had to be made because Shreyas Iyer got a back spasm right before the start and had to be replaced by KL Rahul. Mohammad Shami has also been replaced by Jasprit Bumrah in India’s team.
The Men in Green will be hoping to keep their good run going in the Asia Cup after beating Bangladesh by seven wickets in their first Super Four match.
“We’ll start by bowling. I think there is some water, and we should use that. India vs. Pakistan is always a high-stakes game, but we will take each game as it comes. At the start, Pakistan captain Babar Azam said, “As a team, we are playing well, and we are focused on this one.”
