Asia Cup: Pakistan announce playing XI ahead of India clash – Times of India

NEW DELHI: The Pakistan Cricket Board on Saturday announced their playing XI for the high-profile Asia Cup Super Fours clash against arch-rivals India in Colombo.
Pakistan will be going in for the Sunday’s clash with the same XI they put up against Bangladesh in their first game of the Super Fours stage.

In the previous group game against India, that ended in a no result due to rain, Pakistan’s pace trio of Shaheen Afridi, Haris Rauf and Naseem Shah bagged all 10 wickets for the first time in the Asia Cup history.

Skipper Babar will once again back his deadly pace trio to deliver against the high-profile India batting order.
“I am proud of my pacers. We dominate everyone. Big matches and tournaments are won by fast bowlers. I have my belief in them. The secret behind their success is that they stay united and have belief in themselves. If one does not have a good day, the other one steps up and covers up for it,” said Babar in the pre-match press conference.

With clouds looming over Colombo ahead of the marquee clash, Babar said that the team is focused on what they can control.
“We are focusing on things we can control. It rained four days. The way the sun is out, does not look like it will rain. But we will focus on utilising whatever time we get to the best of our abilities,” he said.
Pakistan XI for India game – Fakhar Zaman, Imam-ul-Haq, Babar Azam (c), Mohammad Rizwan (wk), Agha Salman, Iftikhar Ahmed, Shadab Khan, Faheem Ashraf, Shaheen Afridi, Naseem Shah, Haris Rauf.
