Asia cup 2018 India vs Pakistan Live Updates
In its inaugural match of the Asia Cup, India did not show strong as much as expected against Hong Kong. India, with great difficulty, won by 26 runs. Now in the second match, Team India face Pakistan, against which they have lost the Champions Trophy final last year.
Being an experienced player in the absence of regular captain Virat Kohli, the weight of Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s shoulders has also increased. Dhoni, however, returned to ‘Zero’ in the match against Hong Kong. The last time he hit a century against Hong Kong, Dhoni caught wicket-keeper Scott McKay in an attempt to cut off the delivery of Ehsan Khan. Viewers were most disappointed with Dhoni’s dismissal
but this does not mean that his bat will remain silent against Pakistan. Statistics show that their batting averages are highest in the Indo-Pak bilateral. Talking about the highest average of batting in 10 or more matches against each other, Dhoni is at the top with an average of 55.90. He has scored 1230 runs in just 30 innings during the period 2005-2017, not out.
