CRICKET INDIA VS PAKISTAN – Neighbors India and Pakistan haven’t played each other in cricket in a long time for a variety of reasons. However, in that aspect, 2022 will be slightly different. The two countries will clash both on the field and in the meeting rooms.
Check out the following four upcoming India vs. Pakistan matches:
1. Asia Cup
The 2022 Asia Cup will be held in Sri Lanka from August 27 to September 11, 2022. The tournament format is such that each group will consist of three teams, with the top two teams from each group qualifying for the next round. If India and Pakistan are in the same group, they will likely face each other twice; once in the group stage and again in the super four.
2. PCB would oppose BCCI’s proposal
The Indian Premier League is projected to grow in size with each passing year, which will have a negative impact on international cricket. Ramiz Raja, the chairman of the Pakistan Cricket Board, has announced that he will challenge this move at the next ICC meeting.
3. ICC T20 World Cup
Returning to the field, India and Pakistan will meet in the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2022, in addition to the Asia Cup. This will be both sides’ first match, and it will take place on October 23rd at the Melbourne Cricket Ground. India will be trying to revenge their setback in the previous edition, while Pakistan will want to replicate their performance.
4. Battle of Rank
The Pakistani captain presently has the upper hand in this particular battle. In ODIs, he is rated first in the globe, while Kohli is placed third. In Test cricket, Babar is fourth, while Kohli is tenth, and in T20I cricket, he is first again, while Kohli is as low as twenty-first. It would be intriguing to see if he can keep his position or if the former Indian captain rediscovers his midas touch.
