On Sunday, India’s Asia Cup campaign gets underway against Pakistan, their bitter rivals. India is a member of Group A for the Asia Cup together with Hong Kong, who on Wednesday defeated the United Arab Emirates to earn a spot in the continental competition.

With just 24 hours till the crucial match between India and Pakistan, Rohit Sharma is still unsure about his starting lineup. Babar Azam has already chosen his starting lineup but will disclose it tomorrow. While Rohit says he will wait till after watching Sri Lanka vs Afghanistan make his choice. The SL vs AFG game will be played on the same field as the IND vs PAK encounter.

Playing XI will be decided after SL vs AFG match 

“We haven’t decided on the Playing XI. tomorrow’s match will be played on the same pitch as today’s (SL vs AFG). We want to see how the match goes and depending on that, we will decide our XI. In the talk I had with the curator, the toss would not be a factor. There hasn’t been much dew. But we will see how it goes today in Sri Lanka vs Afghanistan match and then take a call,“ Rohit Sharma said.

When asked about the condition of the Pitch, Indian Captain said, the pitch was first shown to us yesterday. There was some grass present. I have no idea how it will turn out. Every team is competitive. Therefore, we are unsure if the competition will be dominated by spins just yet. Shaheen and Bumrah are not native to Pakistan. The other guys, though, will take their chances.
