Wasim Jaffer, a former Test opener, has announced his starting lineup for the highly anticipated Asia Cup 2022 match between India and Pakistan at the Dubai International Stadium on Sunday, August 28. At the very same location where the Men in Blue had suffered a humiliating 10-wicket setback in the T20 World Cup match last October, both teams would renew their rivalry.
Jaffer only made one significant change to India's playing XI, and it was in the middle order, where the country has an abundance of options. He selected batting superstar Virat Kohli to bat at number three in addition to captain Rohit Sharma and vice-captain KL Rahul as the openers. Wasim Jaffer also added that should Rishabh Pant get a chance to bat, he must bat at number five.
