As the clock runs down on the ICC ODI World Cup 2023, the Asia Cup 2023 becomes an important assignment and sojourn for all the participating teams. Both India and Pakistan are powerhouses in world cricket and their performances will be crucial in this tournament.
As India lock horns with Pakistan for the 2nd time in this tournament, the entire world will be glued to their screen during the game on 10th September. There are chances of rain but the good news is that there is a reserve day for his high-voltage fixture.
When the IND vs PAK game in the group-stage round didn’t get a result because of the rain, it was an anti-climatic moment for something which all cricket fans were eagerly waiting for.

1. Shaheen Afridi (Pakistan)
One of the best left-arm seamers presently in the cricketing world, Shaheen Afridi has the potential to scythe through the opposition team’s batting department. He has traditionally performed well against India and has been a big threat to the top-order batters.
In the previous game versus India, Shaheen Afridi was breathing fire and had bagged 4 wickets. He can be a potential match-winner as he can break through the gates of the Indian team batters in this match.
2. Hardik Pandya (India)
India’s premier batting all-rounder Hardik Pandya will be one of the top-rated fantasy players in this IND vs PAK game. He has the ability to single-handedly change the complexion of the match and will be an important cog in the wheels of the Indian cricket team.
The last time these two teams met at the Asia Cup 2023, Hardik Pandya scored 87 runs and forged a match-saving partnership with wicket-keeper batter Ishan Kishan. You can reap several benefits if you make Pandya the captain of your fantasy cricket team for this game.
3. Babar Azam (Pakistan)
The Pakistani skipper is slowly showing the entire world that he is an all-time great of this sport. The sheer amount of consistency he displays in every format is mind-boggling.
Babar Azam is the 2nd-highest run-scorer in the ongoing Asia Cup 2023 and the highest run-getter of Pakistan, with 168 runs under his belt so far. If Azam gets into the groove in this match, he will be hard to stop.
Making Babar Azam the captain of your fantasy team can be one of smartest moves you can make in this game.
