India Vs Pakistan Asia Cup T20 Match

So the most awaited match of the Asia Cup T-20, 2016 is about to kick off in a couple of hours’ time as the tournament favorites India lock horns against the arch rivals Pakistan on Saturday night. It’s going to be a cracker of a game as both teams have quality players in their respective sides.

India Vs Pakistan Asia Cup T20 Match

Needless to say, whenever these two teams have faced each other in any format of the game, the atmosphere has always been adrenaline-rushing and it’s expected that tonight’s India Vs Pakistan Asia Cup T20 match won’t be much of a difference.

India Vs Pakistan Asia Cup T20 Match Details

Match:    India Vs Pakistan, Asia Cup T-20, 2016, 4th Match

Date:       Saturday, 27th February, 2016

Time:      01:30 p.m. GMT, 07:00 p.m. IST, 07:30 p.m. local

Venue:   Shere Bangla National Stadium, Mirpur, Dhaka

Match Preview

India started off their campaign against the hosts Bangladesh with a convincing and comprehensive victory. Going into this India Vs Pakistan Asia Cup T20 match, the men in blue will look to continue the momentum and keep dominance on their counterparts. On the other hand, Pakistan will be eager to change the poor statistics that they have against India in the shortest format of the game. As the records suggest, Pakistan have managed to have won just 1 match out of 5 clashes they have had so far against India in T20I format.

Coming into the series, India had beaten Sri Lanka 2-1 at home in the 3-match T-20I series. Prior to that, India whitewashed the Aussies down under in the T-20I series that had as many matches as against the Islanders. Last time when India played in Bangladesh, they were struggling against the hosts and eventually lost the 3-match ODI series 1-2. However, this time around they seem to have adapted to the conditions pretty well as they thrashed the tigers with a huge margin in the Asia Cup opener few days back.

Pakistan, on the other hand, had lost the 3-match T20I series against the blackcaps in New Zealand prior to this tournament. Nevertheless, that won’t make much of a difference as the conditions in New Zealand were different to the ones in the subcontinent. And given the fact that almost all of the Pakistani players have played in the recently concluded inaugural PSL, they have had enough match practice going into this clash of titans.

For India, the strength has always been their batting line-up. With opener Rohit Sharma probably in the best form of his career, Suresh Raina clicking in the middle order, Hardik Pandya playing those crucial cameos, Indian batting order looks solid. The concerns for India though are the old folk Yuvraj’s recent not-so-good form and Dhoni’s back spasms that he had during a training session prior to the match against Bangladesh that almost ruled him out of that match. It will be intriguing to see whether he gives some rest to himself and allows Parthiv Patel who has been called up into the side as back-up for the Indian skipper in the limited over cricket. However, this seems unlikely as Dhoni won’t want to perturb the balance of the side and the same 11 are likely to take the field.

If we look into the Pakistan squad, they have a mixture of experienced players and newbies. The team trunk stands mostly on their bowling attack. The pitch in Shere Bangla Stadium had a bit of grass on it in India’s last encounter. If the conditions don’t change, the pace-heavy Pakistani bowling unit will be licking their lips. With the likes of Wahab Riaz, Mohammad Irfan and the returning Mohammad Amir, Paksitan have a fiery and menacing bowling line-up which will be looking to go all guns against the Indian batsmen.

Team Squad

India: MS Dhoni (C & Wk), Virat Kohli, Shikhar Dhawan, Hardik Pandya, Jasprit Bumrah, Ravichandran Ashwin, Suresh Raina, Ajinkya Rahane, Rohit Sharma, Harbhajan Singh, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Ashish Nehra, Pawan Negi, Ravindra Jadeja, Yuvraj Singh, Parthiv Patel

Pakistan: Shahid Afridi (C), Mohammad Hafeez, Khurram Manzoor, Shoaib Malik, Sarfraz Ahmed (Wk), Umar Akmal, Imad Wasim, Anwar Ali, Wahab Riaz, Mohammad Amir, Mohammad Irfan, Mohammad Nawaz, Mohammad Sami, Sharjeel Khan, Khalid Latif

Match Prediction

Going by the recent performances and results, I reckon, India would be having their 2nd victory in this tournament and further better their T20I records against their arch neighbors. However, Pakistan will also leave no stone un-turned to start their campaign on a winning note. So the cricket loving people of these two nations will be looking forward to witnessing this India Vs Pakistan Asia Cup T20 match.

On this category, The Revenant director holds the top place among many great working director of the year.  We can see many marquee names on the list, but its all depends on Academy team. However, The Revenant appeals the most than any other else. Sharing my personal experience, while watching the movie, there are scenes which let me to forget breathing for a second. The natural beauty screened in the movie, tragedy and survival tactics are just mind blowing.

asia cup t20

In my previous post I have mentioned that the Asia Cup 2016 is going to be played in a shortest format of cricket which is T20. The format of the game is totally based on the upcoming world event of cricket, which is confirmed to be held in India. So, it is clear that every contestant team is considering the importance of Asia Cup as an extra momentum for world stage T20 cricket tournament.

India Vs Bangladesh Match 1

India Vs Bangladesh Match 1

The First match of Asia Cup T20 2016 between India and Bangladesh is right at the hottest place of news currently. The predictions and possibilities over winning team just got even more complicated, since the Indian skipper MS Dhoni is reported to be injured and unfit for the opening match against hosting country Bangladesh.

Date: Wednesday, 24 February

Venue: Shere Bangla National Stadium, Mirpur, Dhaka

Time: 7:30 P.M local/ 7:00 PM IST/ 1:30 PM GMT


Get the Overview

The captain of team Indian seemed to suffer from muscle spasm during the training session. The wicket-keeper cum batsman Parthiv Patel has been confirmed as back-up in by BCCI; and Virat Kohli will be commanding the team men in blue.


While India got the title of favorite with victories in last two T20 series against Sri Lanka and Australia; the host Bangladesh has been proving themselves as invincible at their home in limited-over cricket since the last year beating more than one top class teams such as India, South Africa, Pakistan and Zimbabwe.

Some of you might take the injury and absence of captain cool MS Dhoni as an advantage for Bangladesh; on that case, I must say you are underestimating Vice-captain Virat Kohli. Kohli always led a team India with a good attitude in the absence of Dhoni. We certainly can see him as a sustained captain for future.

virat kohli

If we look back at last records of T20 matches played by India, India has won five matches out of six.

Additionally, men in blue are in a strong form, especially its bating line up considered as the best in the world; whereas Bangladesh strength is totally depends on their bowling attack. It sounds like India has its best against Bangladesh.

The pitch of Shere Bangla National stadium offers an extra advantage to the spinners while team India has its bowling line up with spinners like Ashwin and Jadeja.


Moreover, in the history of T20 between India and Bangladesh, the teams have faced each other twice till date; and India won the both matches. Bangladesh’s strength at their home ground covers only in 50 over’s ODI format so far. On that sense, team India possesses more strength than Bangladesh in T20 format.


Team Squads

India: MS Dhoni (Captain-Wicketkeeper), Shikhar Dhawan, Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli, Yuvraj Singh, Ravindra Jadeja, Hardik Pandya, Ravichandran Ashwin, Jasprit Bumrah, Ashish Nehra, Suresh Raina, Ajinkya Rahane, Harbhajan Singh, Pawan Negi, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Parthiv Patel

Bangladesh: Mashrafe Mortaza (Captain), Shakib Al Hasan, Imrul Kayes, Mohammad Mithun, Mahmudullah, Mushfiqur Rahim, Soumya Sarkar, Sabbir Rahman, Nasir Hossain, Mustafizur Rahman, Al-Amin Hossain, Taskin Ahmed, Arafat Sunny, Abu Hider, Nurul Hasan
