IND vs PAK Match Prediction – Who will win today’s Asia Cup match between India and Pakistan?
India and Pakistan will lock horns in Dubai on August 28, Sunday, in Match 2 of the Asia Cup 2022. Pakistan have the bragging rights after their thumping 10-wicket victory over their arch-rivals in their last meeting in the 2021 T20 World Cup at the same venue. India, on the other hand, have had a great run of form, coming into the tournament on the back of series wins over England and West Indies.
Pakistan have only played one T20I in 2022, against Australia in April. Australia won that match by three wickets, chasing a target of 163. India and Pakistan have met nine times in T20Is, and India have a superior record of 7-2 over their neighbours.

IND vs PAK Pitch Report
The conditions in Dubai are hot and dry, and the dew factor at night will be virtually non-existent. This could also mean that toss will not be much of a factor, and the wicket will provide an even contest between bat and ball. However, the teams might prefer to bowl first and set the tempo accordingly while chasing.

IND vs PAK Probable Top Performers
Probable best batter of the match:
Suryakumar Yadav is one of the most talented batters in the Indian side and one of the best batters in T20Is at the moment. He has scored 321 runs in his last nine matches at an average of 35.67 and a strike rate of 187.71. He is also the highest-ranked Indian batter in the format and second overall, as per the ICC Men’s Batting Ranking.
Probable best bowler of the match:
India star leg-spinner Yuzvendra Chahal has resurged himself in 2022 after failing even to make the squad for the 2021 T20 World Cup. He was the highest wicket-taker in the Indian Premier League (IPL) with Rajasthan Royals (RR) and has taken 15 wickets in the last 12 T20Is at an economy rate of 7.12. The leggie is expected to be among wicket-takers again and deliver for the Men in Blue.
