The Asia Cup has kicked off in grand style this year. This edition of the tournament is being played in the One Day International (ODI) format, a decision made in anticipation of the upcoming ODI World Cup. Today, on Saturday, one of the most awaited clashes in the cricketing world will take place between arch-rivals India and Pakistan. Both teams will face each other in the ODI format after a gap of four years, with their last ODI encounter during the 2019 World Cup.
This time, the Asia Cup is being played in a hybrid format. Pakistan is hosting thirteen matches, including four group-stage matches, at their home ground, while Sri Lanka will host nine matches, including the Super Four and the final. After the BCCI declined to send the Indian team to Pakistan, the PCB, in collaboration with Sri Lanka, decided to host the tournament. The final match of the tournament will be held in Colombo on September 17.
India has been placed in Group A alongside Pakistan and Nepal. In Group B, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, and Afghanistan are competing. Pakistan’s team has already played one match, defeating Nepal convincingly, and has three points in the group. To qualify for the Super Four, Team India will need to defeat Pakistan in this crucial match.
The four teams making it to the Super Four will once again compete against each other, and the top two teams will advance to the final. In the ODI Asia Cup, India and Pakistan have clashed thirteen times in the past. India holds a slight edge, having won seven out of those thirteen encounters, while Pakistan has emerged victorious in five matches. One match ended without a result.
