Asia Cup 2022, India vs Pakistan Live Updates: Virat Kohli overcame a nervy start to put India back on track in their chase of 148. Pakistan debutant Naseem Shah strikes in the first over to dismiss KL Rahul for a first-ball duck in India’s chase of 148. The youngster almost doubled the money for Pakistan, but Virat Kohli was dropped at second slip by Fakhar Zaman. Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Hardik Pandya starred with the ball as India bowled out Pakistan for 147 in the Asia Cup clash in Dubai. Bhuvneshwar picked four for 26, while Hardik also returned with figures of three for 25 after India invited Pakistan to bat at the Dubai International Stadium. The Indian pacers targetted Pakistan batters with short ball. Bhuvneshwar Kumar gave India the perfect start by picking up the big wicket of Babar Azam. Avesh Khan then removed the dangerous Fakhar Zaman within the powerplay to put Rohit Sharma’s team in a great position. Bhuvneshwar and Hardik cleaned up the Pakistan tail. Rizwan top-score with a fine 43, before Shahnawaz Dahani and Haris Rauf took Pakistan to a respectable total. Earlier, Rishabh Pant did not find a place in India’s playing XI as Dinesh Karthik was given a nod over the youngster. (LIVE SCORECARD)
