India vs Pakistan, Asia Cup 2018 Highlights: India blew Pakistan away at the Dubai International Stadium. Ambati Rayudu and Dinesh Karthik put in the finishing touches to take India to an eight-wicket win but the foundation was laid by a brilliant bowling performance and Pakistan’s astonishingly poor shot selection. The only negative for India from this match is the injury suffered by Hardik Pandya, who had to be stretchered off the pitch due to a back spasm during Pakistan’s innings.
India vs Pakistan, Asia Cup 2018 Highlights: The buzz in Dubai cricket circles on Tuesday centred around Imran Khan. The Pakistan Prime Minister embarked on a two-day state visit to Saudi Arabia today. On his way home on Wednesday, a stop-off in Abu Dhabi is scheduled. Grapevine has it that Imran might also take a trip to Dubai for a few hours to catch a glimpse of the India-Pakistan Asia Cup game. A Prime Minister’s visit to a foreign country needs to follow certain protocols. And there’s no confirmation yet from official sources here. But the rumour mills went into overdrive, so much so that even Pakistan captain Sarfraz Ahmed was asked during his pre-match presser about Imran’s possible visit. “It will be a great motivation if he comes. If he comes to the ground, then it will be good for the fans and a big motivation for our players. He has a big fan following both in India and Pakistan, so it will be a great motivation,” Sarfraz replied.
