B.Kumar gave India a dream start removing both the Pakistani openers in the Asia Cup Match at the Dubai International Stadium. The right arm pacer got Imam-ul-haq caught behind in the second over and then scalped Fakhar Zaman for a duck.
A partnership is being built between Shoaib Malik and Babar Azam, which has relieved some of the pressure. Earlier, Pakistan won the toss and elected to bat on a batsmen friendly pitch. India have made two changes – Jasprit Bumrah and Hardik Pandya are back into the side. Khaleel Ahmed and Shardul Thakur have been dropped. Pakistan squad remains unchanged.
