Pakistan on Edge Over India in Asia Cup 2022 Says Sarfraz Ahmad
In each tournament, a match between India and Pakistan generates unique enthusiasm. Many believe India will prevail, while others believe Pakistan will have the last laugh. Sarfraz Ahmed, the Pakistani wicketkeeper-batsman, believes Pakistan is on edge over India in Asia Cup 2022.
On the second day of the Asia Cup 2022, which will take place on August 28, the cricketing war of these two decades will be observed. Speculation has begun in cricket circles over the upcoming match. Political upheaval prevents India and Pakistan from staging a bilateral series after 2013. Consequently, they are unable to see their matches outside of the Asia Cup and any ICC competition.
In 2021, India and Pakistan last met at the T20 World Cup in the United Arab Emirates. Pakistan was accused of failing to overcome India in an ICC match!
Shakib is optimistic about the Asia Cup, and the president of the BCB is delighted.
India was beaten in the previous Twenty20 World Cup. In the match, Pakistan not only defeated India, but also blasted it by 10 wickets.
In the Asia Cup, they will then face for the first time. Consequently, as the fire of retaliation burns in the Indian camp, the Pakistani camp is confidently preparing to annihilate India once more.
Sarfaraz Ahmed, the wicketkeeper-batsman for Pakistan, believes that Dubai would dominate India in this match because to the circumstances.
Sarfaraz told PakTV Sports, “Pakistan is quite familiar with the circumstances and the grounds.” We have played several PSL and home series matches at this venue. Yes, India participated in the IPL here. However, they do not share our experience in this circumstance.”
Pakistan defeated India in the 2021 T20 World Cup, and the two teams will now face each other in the Asia Cup. Sarfaraz feels that Pakistan’s morale would be boosted by their victory in the last encounter on this ground.
Said, “The opening match of each competition sets the tone.” Our opening match is against India. Our confidence will be strong coming into this match because we defeated India at this stadium the previous time we played.”
The Asia Cup team from Pakistan did not give Sarfaraz an opportunity. However, he is extremely familiar with losing to India. Under his leadership, Pakistan defeated India to win the Champions Trophy in 2017.
