For India vs Pakistan game, a fresh turf will be chosen. India played 3 spinners in their victory against Bangladesh but it’s the lines they ball that’ll prove to be crucial. The temperatures have been unrelenting throughout the tournament and it’s expected to remain the same for this game as well. Out of the 5 games that have been played at this venue in the Asia Cup, 3 have been won by the team batting second. India chasing down two mediocre targets against Pakistan & Bangladesh.
Team India will remain unchanged for this game. All the 3 departments worked in perfect sync to register an impressive victory against Bangladesh. 3 spinners, 2 pacers and Kedhar Jadhav will handle the white Kookaburra.
Shadab Khan missed the last ODI for Pakistan. Mohammad Nawaz was picked and the left-arm orthodox proved his mettle to a remarkable exactness with figures of 3/57 in the 2nd Super Four ODI. Shadab for Nawaz will probably be the only change.

Rohit Sharma(c), Shikhar Dhawan, Ambati Rayudu, MS Dhoni(wk), Dinesh Karthik, Kedhar Jadhav, Ravindra Jadeja, Kuldeep Yadav, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Yuzvendra Chahal , Jasprit Bumrah
Imam Ul Haq, Fakhar Zaman, Babar Azam, Shoaib Malik, Sarfaraz Ahmed(c/wk), Asif Ali, Harris Sohail, Shadab Khan, Shaheen Afridi, Usman Khan, Hasan Ali
Fantasy Cricket Tips
Rohit Sharma is batting like a dream. The 52 against Pakistan he scored will always be talked about. In the previous game against Bangladesh, he put up yet another master class. While the law of averages might confess that a failure for him is around the corner, Sharma’s class has promoted him to a different level. At 9.6 credits he’s the costliest batsman for this fixture. His partner, Shikhar Dhawan(9.1 credits) is the highest run-getter this series(213 runs) & is a huge prospect for leading the FanFight Fantasy Cricket team. From Pakistan, Babar Azam(9.1) & Imam Ul Haq(7.7) batted with a lot of class & poise against Afghanistan. Ambati Rayudu(8.2) looks so easy to the eye and he can be the trump card for this contest.
The Indian pacers were clinical in the last game. Bhuvneshwar Kumar & Bumrah were accurate, sharp and smart. Chahal & Kuldeep weren’t able to pick plenty of wickets but they’ve held the batters down with ease. Shaheen Afridi was mighty impressive in their last game and is likely to hold his spot. At 7.2 credits he’s an absolute haggle. Hasan Ali seems nippy but without any sideways movement, the Indian batters will nudge him around easily.
Ravindra Jadeja made a dream comeback after 14 months. Jadeja & Rashid Khan bowl around the 100 kmph mark and that appears to be the right pace to bowl at. At least on this wicket. Shadab Khan & Kedhar Jadhav are the other decent options. Shoaib Malik, the game changer for Pakistan in the previous game showed why he’s still Pakistan’s gun player. His value though is a high 9.1. Both teams have in-form players but the budget needs to be properly used. How does your FanFight team look?
MS Dhoni looked sharp at the crease against Bangladesh and looks good for a big knock. Sarfaraz Ahmed, on the contrary, can’t get bat to ball. His struggle in the middle-order might cost him a spot in the fantasy cricket team.
