India vs Pakistan, Asia Cup: Batting first India have put up 181 runs on the board against Pakistan in their first Super 4 match of the ongoing Asia Cup. Virat Kohli top scored for India with his 60-run knock. Kohli was well supported by Deepak Hooda in the end.
While openers Rohit Sharma and KL Rahul also gave a good start to the Indian team with their 54-run opening stand.
However, Suryakymar Yadav, Rishabh Pant and Hardik Pandya failed to deliver in the first innings.
For Pakistan, Shadab Khan was the pick of the bowlers with his figures of 2/30.
Earlier, India made three changes as Hardik Pandya, Deepak Hooda and Ravi Bishnoi came into the team while Pakistan had one change.
The pitch in Dubai has been friendly to bowlers and surprisingly due to not much dew, it has remained consistent throughout the 40 overs. Thus it is likely to remain a true wicket.
