DUBAI : – Pakistan cricket team captain Sarfraz Ahmed on Wednesday has expressed satisfaction over the preparation of national players ahead of most-anticipated match with India in ongoing Asia Cup 2018.
The skipper said that they will try their best to clinch the victory against arch-rivals. “The presence of Prime Minister (PM) Imran Khan will boost our confidence,” he added.
It is to be mentioned here that Pakistan will take on arch-rivals India in the Asia Cup 2018 at Dubai International Cricket Stadium today (Wednesday).
Both India and Pakistan have already qualified for the Super Four stage of Asia Cup 2018 from Group A.
Millions of fans, across the border and elsewhere in the world, will be watching the Group A clash between Pakistan and India, with a sold out 25,000-crowd expected at Dubai Stadium.
The game is also the first between the sub-continent rivals since Pakistan thumped India by 180 runs in the final of the Champions Trophy at The Oval in June last year.
The two teams are facing each other for the first time in the United Arab Emirates since 2006, the last of their regular matches which were also held in Sharjah between 1984 to 2000.
