India vs Pakistan Highlights
 
It was a great game of cricket for a total of 147 to be defended. Pakistan's fast bowlers were strong at the start of the innings and their spinners did well too in the middle overs with Shadab going for only 19 runs in his four overs. However, Ravindra Jadeja and Hardik Pandya dug deep after a good-looking 35 from Virat Kohli. Jadeja did get out for 35 off 29 balls eventually, Pandya saw the team through with his 33* off just 17 balls. 

For Pakistan, Mohammad Nawaz picked three wickets while debutant Naseem Shah picked two. 

Earlier in the evening, India bowled well to restrict Pakistan to only 147. This was also achieved after some lusty blows from Shahnawaz Dahani and Haris Rauf. Mohammad Rizwan top scored for Pakistan with 43 off 42 balls. Bhuvneshwar Kumar picked 4-26 while Pandya finished with 3-24 in his four overs.

India vs Pakistan Pitch Report
 
In the World Cup that took place in October-November 2021 and even in the IPL 2021 that preceded the global showpiece event, the formula was to win the toss and bowl first. Dew works its wonders in the second innings in the gulf country that helps the batters chase down totals easily. Hence, in all probability, the formula is going to remain the same for this World Cup too.

Indian all-rounder Hardik Pandya played brilliantly throughout the game with both bat and ball as he hit 33* (17) and took 3-24 (4) to win the game for his team. India chased down 148 with five wickets in hand and two balls to spare

Asia Cup India vs Pakistan Live: India win by five wickets

 
Mohammad Nawaz into the attack
 
Ball 1 Wicket!! Mohammad Nawaz has been brought in for the last over and he has clean bowled Jadeja off the very first ball 
 
Ball 2 Short and pulled away for a single 
 
Pandya is on strike with six needed off four balls and India anticipates a six
 
Ball 3 No it is a dot ball 
 
Ball 4 Six!! Finally the inevitable has happened as a spinner was never going to stop Pandya from hitting the ball for a six. Yes, he could have been out hitting it for a six, but he was going to hit it anyway and he has hit a mighty blow over mid-wicket for a six to win the game for his team with two balls to spare. 
 
India Live Score 148-5 after 19.4 overs

Asia Cup India vs Pakistan Live: Rauf taken to the cleaners, concedes 15

 
Haris Rauf into the attack
 
Ball 1 Single off the first ball 
 
Jadeja has changed the gloves and it seems India would look to play out this over easily and win it in the last over 
 
Ball 2 Single to short third-man 
 
Ball 3 Four!! This is a school-boy error from Babar Azam as he rolls with the ball to the boundary and what would have been two runs at max are now four with the bowler’s confidence taken down as well
 
Ball 4 Four!! Short and pulled away for a four by Pandya 
 
Ball 5 Great bouncer. No runs as one for the over is called
 
Ball 6 Four!! Such a bad ball to bowl at this time. Almost a half-tracker and pulled down  the ground by Pandya for a four 
 
India Live Score 141-4 after 19 overs
 
11:30 PM

Asia Cup India vs Pakistan Live: India need 21 off 12 balls

 
Naseem Shah into the attack
 
Ball 1 Too high for the liking of the umpire and hence called a wide 
 
Ball 1 Four!! All the field has been kept on the boundary line in the leg side and Naseem bowls a wasteful delivery outside off and gets hit for a four through the covers 
 
Ball 2 A great comeback delivery from Naseem. Dot ball 
 
Ball 3 Even Naseem Shah is struggling to walk properly and seems like Pakistan would need another replacement in the next game. It would be interesting to see how he bowls his last three balls 
 
Ball 4 Out!! A struggling Naseem Shah has managed to trap Ravindra Jadeja infront of the wicket. 
 
Review taken. It looks plumb, but a review has been taken by India and the review is successful as the ball is just pitching outside leg. Saved by an inch there 
 
Ball 5 Six!! Rubbing salt on the injury is what you would call it. Naseem Shah goes full and it was taken down the ground for a huge six after almost getting Jadeja out
 
Ball 6 A dot ball will finish the over as 11 runs come off it 
 
India Live Score 127-4 after 18 overs

Asia Cup India vs Pakistan Live: India need 32 off the last three

 
Haris Rauf into the attack
 
Haris Rauf is struggling big time even in his run-up which is not a good sign to begin the over 
 
Ball 1 Wide down the leg and a single taken as well. Two runs without a ball being bowled. Pakistan are giving away the game they have worked really hard at
 
Ball 1 Dot ball. Almost an edge there as Pandya tried to cut the fast-length ball from Rauf
 
Ball 2 Same ball, same result. Once again a dot 
 
Ball 3 Great effort in the deep by Babar to save two runs 
 
Ball 4 Single taken by Pandya 
 
Ball 5 Wide down the leg. It was a perfect wide yorker for Pandya, but not for Jadeja. Again three runs of extra in this over as well 
 
Ball 5 Two runs to deep square leg

Ball 5 Heavy ball from Dahani once again and only a single taken by Pandya
 
Ball 6 Very bad keeping from Rizwan as he was in a hurry to collect and appeal for the catch that he missed the ball and two extra runs along with a wide were taken by India and they get an extra ball too 
 
Ball 6 Single off the last ball will make it 10 from the over without any risk taken
 
India Live Score 107-4 after 16 overs

Naseem Shah into the attack
 
Ball 1 Dot ball will start the over as Pakistan des[perately need a wicket from him 
 
Ball 2 Wicket!! Pakistan desperately needed a wicket and they have got one courtesy of Naseem Shah who is having a dream debut here. Shah has clean bowled Surya as India lose their fourth 
 
Ball 3 Once again great effort at deep fine leg bu Dahani to save two runs as Pandya gets off the mark 
 
Ball 4 Pandya is playing all the balls from the middle of the crease. If he misses one, he is sure to get out 
 
Ball 5 Single to deep square leg for Jadeja 
 
Ball 6 Four! Too short and Hardik would not miss out on those as he cuts it past backward point for a four to eventually finish the over with eight runs from it

Asia Cup India vs Pakistan Live: Dahani ends a good over

 
Shahnawaz Dahani into the attack
 
Ball 1 Edge off the very first ball, but reaches the keeper on one bounce. Rizwan does well to get a hand to it and stop it from going for a four. Saves three runs eventually
 
Ball 2 Appeal from the bowler for caught behind once again and once again the umpire says no. Once again, Pakistan don't take a review 
 
Ball 3 This is one of the dumbest DRS taken by Pakistan. It did not look like an edge whatsoever and the umpire gave it a wide. It was clearly going down leg and the review is wasted. 
 
Ball 3 Single to deep backward square leg by Jadeja
 
Ball 4 Single taken once again to deep covers 
 
Ball 5 Single taken to deep square leg 
 
Ball 6 Great effort by Haris Rauf at mid-on will mean a single will end a good over from Dahani
 
India Live Score 89-3 after 14 overs

Ball 2 Dot once again 
 
Ball 3 Single taken by Jadeja finally 
 
Ball 4 Good work by Dahani in the deep otherwise this ball was meant to go for a four. Short and wide, a gift to Surya literally 
 
Ball 5 Worked away on the on-side for yet another two runs in this over
 
Ball 6 Single off the last ball will bring a fine spell from Shadab to an end. He gave away only 19 from his four overs without taking a wicket though. 
 
India Live Score 83-3 after 13 overs
