FOUR! INDIA WIN BY 8 WICKETS WITH 126 BALLS REMAINING! Shoaib Malik serves a long hop on middle, Rayudu goes back and pulls it thunderously square leg for a boundary. All done, an easy win for the Men in Blue.

Floated ball on middle, Karthik nudges it through square leg for a run.

A mishit! Once again Rayudu comes down the track and lofts it over covers. Not timed quite well but a run taken.

27.5 0

Goes on the back foot and punches it straight to the cover fielder.

27.4 0

Dropped by Sarfraz! Flatter and around off, Rayudu steps forward and across to defend but seems to get an inside edge (going by the bowler's reaction) onto the pads. It lobs in the air, Sarfraz moves forward quickly but fails to grab the ball.

27.3 0

Quicker and flatter on middle, Rayudu pushes it back to the bowler.

27.2 4

FOUR! Swift footwork shown by Rayudu. He speeds down to the pitch of the delivery and lifts it easily over mid off for a boundary. 10 needed more.

27.1 0

Dances down the track and does well to block the ball.

Summary

India vs Pakistan cricket rivalry is an epic encounter that keeps citizens of both countries glued to the game till the very last ball is bowled, or the last run scored. The clash is usually a true entertainer in every sense; be it at any stage of the tournament. Last time India played Pakistan was in ICC Champions Trophy Final, a little over an year ago on 18th June, 2017.

A year later, and after a rather below average victory over Hong Kong, Rohit Sharma led India will look forward to taking on Pakistan in the most awaited clash of the Asia Cup 2018 in a Group Stage match today. Match is scheduled to start at 5.30 PM IST, held at the Dubai International Stadium.

 Stand-in captain Rohit Sharma would be looking forward to making his 100th innings special with a century. The skipper surely wants the team to putforth a much better performance as opposed to yesterday's game against Hong Kong. On one hand Pakistan beat Hong Kong convincingly by 8 wickets while India won its high scoring game merely by 26 runs. As per the head-to-head count, India holds a slight edge over Pakistan. So far there have been 12 matches played by both the countries out of which India has won six games and Pakistan has won five, and one match was abandoned due to rain. Check out likely Playing XI of the two teams:

Playing XIs:

Pakistan: Shoaib Malik, Sarfraz Ahmed (c & wk), Mohammad Amir, Babar Azam, Imam-ul-Haq, Asif Ali, Usman Khan, Fakhar Zaman, Shadab Khan, Faheem Ashraf, Hasan Ali.

India: Shikhar Dhawan, Rohit Sharma (c), Ambati Rayudu, Dinesh Karthik, MS Dhoni (wk), Kedar Jadhav, Hardik Pandya, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Kuldeep Yadav, Yuzvendra Chahal, Jasprit Bumrah.
