India vs Pakistan (IND vs PAK) Today Match Prediction Preview

Welcome to the IND vs PAK Today Match Prediction curated by Kheltalk cricket experts. India will take on Pakistan in the 2nd match of Asia Cup 2022 at Dubai on Sunday, 28th August 2022. Keep on reading for more information on the IND vs PAK game.

The arch-rivals India and Pakistan will lock horns once again in the Asia Cup on Sunday. India have defeated Pakistan in their last two meetings in the Asia Cup. However, Pakistan thrashed India by ten wickets in the T20 World Cup last year.

Talking about the current form, both teams have done well in this format recently.

India are coming into this tournament after defeating West Indies 4-1 and whitewashing Ireland as well. India also thrashed England in July. They are certainly in good form at the moment and with the return of some of the senior players into the team, they look formidable.

Pakistan, on the other hand, have played only one T20I this year and it was against Australia in April. Australia won that game by 3 wickets. However, last year, Pakistan defeated West Indies, Bangladesh. They did meet Sri Lanka for Test series which ended in a draw.
