Asia Cup 2018 Day 8: Super four Match 3 – India vs. Pakistan

The second faceoff between the two neighbouring teams India and Pakistan took place at the Dubai International Stadium, where Pakistan proved to be unsuccessful yet again.

The Pakistan team was unable to cope with the efficient Indian line up once again. India won by a much larger margin this time of 9 wickets.

As soon as they stepped on the pitch to bat, they failed to execute, having batted first at a bowl first pitch. Like the case had been for the last couple of days, only Shoaib Malik once again stood out for the Pakistan team. Malik was the only one to score a half century until he was caught out by Dhoni.

The two openers were squashed out before they were able to score a significant amount. The Indian seamers especially applied a great deal of pressure on the left handers. Meanwhile their spinners were the wicket takers. Pakistan ended with a score of 237 for 7 at the end of 50 overs, which was an easy target for the Indians.

Astonishingly, both openers Shikhar Dhawan and Rohit Sharma scored centuries, however Dhawan was given the man of the match award. This was their biggest opening stand against Pakistan and the 13th biggest in their history. The chase was as easy as the 163 for India the other night.
