    As we gear up for the Asia Cup 2023’s biggest clash in the form of Pakistan vs India, it is important for us to know some details about the match while picking up the fantasy team. Pakistan lock horns with India at the Pallekele International Cricket Stadium in Pallekele on 2nd September.

    The likes of Jasprit Bumrah and Shreyas Iyer have staged a comeback into the side and they would be looking to unleash their beast mode ahead of the ICC ODI World Cup 2023. Notably, India are likely to field the squad as the Asia Cup 2023.

    In his comeback series after a long injury layoff, Jasprit Bumrah simply set the stage on fire. He bagged the player of the series award after notching up 4 wickets and he is sure to send shivers down the spines of the opposition batters.

    In this article, we take a look at the top 3 vice-captain choices for this PAK vs IND clash in the Asia Cup 2023:

    1. Shubman Gill (India)

    Shubman Gill

    A prodigious batter of India, Shubman Gill has integrated himself well into the national team. Gill has become an indispensable part of Team India and would be looking to play well in this tournament.

    In 27 ODIs so far, Shubman Gill has amassed 1437 and he has a blistering average of 62.5. Gill would be looking to maximise his potential and play well in the upcoming Asia Cup 2023. He could be a very good vice-captain choice for your fantasy team.

    2. Iftikhar Ahmed (Pakistan)

    Iftikhar Ahmed

    Batting all-rounder Iftikhar Ahmed will be a great-choice vice-captain for your fantasy team for this game. Ahmed is in red-hot form and he activated his beast mode in the opening game of the Asia Cup 2023.

    The 32-year-old smashed 109* runs in just 71 deliveries and his innings was packed with 11 fours and 4 sixes. Iftikhar Ahmed can pose as a serious threat to India and the bowlers will have to vary of his buccaneering ability to smear the bowlers all across the park.

    3. Shadab Khan (Pakistan)

    Shadab Khan

    Pakistani all-rounder and the team’s vice-captain, Shadab Khan can be a serious asset for Pakistan. In the previous game versus Nepal, Shadab bagged 4 wickets and literally spun a web and bamboozled the opposition batters.

    In the 2nd ODI between Afghanistan and Pakistan on 24th August 2023, Shadab Khan had scored 48 runs in 35 balls and had also won the player of the match award in that game.
