These are the 11 Pakistani players that will face India today at the Asia Cup

The Pakistani squad for the big match has been finalized

The wait is finally over! Pakistan and India will go face to face each other at 4:30 pm today and the excitement is increasing minute by minute.

Currently, both teams have had their first match against Hong Kong. While Pakistan easily trashed Hong Kong in their first Asia Cup match, things didn’t look too good for the Indian Team.

The Indian team barely survived their encounter with Hong Kong yesterday by winning the match with barely 26 runs.

With an encounter this big, it was inevitable that both the teams would make a few changes to their lineup. But Pakistan has decided to use the same squad that went up against Hong Kong and won.

Here is the final squad of Pakistan that will be going against India today:

  1. Sarfraz Ahmed – Captain (wk)
  2. Fakhar Zaman
  3. Imam-ul-Haq
  4. Babar Azam
  5. Shoaib Malik
  6. Asif Ali
  7. Shahdab Khan
  8. Faheem Ashraf
  9. Mohammad Amir
  10. Hasan Ali
  11. Usman Khan

The Asia Cup 2018 match between Pakistan and India will begin at 4:30 pm today with the toss taking place at 4:00 pm. Only two and a half hours to go. Are you excited?
