IND vs PAK Dream11 Match Prediction | Who Will Win Today match

Dubai, September 19 at 05:00 PM IST

The stage is set for the high-voltage Asia Cup 2018 tie between arch-rivals India and Pakistan on Wednesday.

Pakistan would draw inspiration from the result in the last time the two sides met, in the ICC Champions Trophy final in England where Pakistan thumped India. With a comprehensive win over Hong Kong, Pakistan would be a confident side on the field.

India, in the absence of Virat Kohli, have their task cut out. Another issue before them is recovery from the first game, as the weather in Dubai is not ideal for two 50-over a side games in successive days.

Pitch and weather conditions: It is hot and humid in Dubai. The fast bowler will have little to offer but the spinners can play a pivotal role in the game.

Last ODI result at the venue: Hong Kong 116 lost to Pakistan 120/2 – 16 September 2018, Asia Cup 2018
