IND vs PAK Info: 

  • Babar Azam’s impressive performance included scoring 151 runs from 131 balls against Nepal. He is a reliable choice as Pakistan’s leading run-scorer when facing India. Haris Rauf, who delivered a strong performance with figures of 2-16 from 5 overs during a recent match at this venue, is our favored candidate to be Pakistan’s top wicket-taker in the upcoming game.
  • Virat Kohli, with a remarkable career total of 12,898 ODI runs, is a formidable option as India’s highest run-scorer against Pakistan. Jasprit Bumrah, who recently made his international comeback against Ireland, is our selection for India’s top wicket-taker on Saturday.
  • Given Virat Kohli’s penchant for performing in high-stakes matches, we recommend placing a wager on him surpassing 31.5 runs in this upcoming match..

IND vs PAK Key Players: 


Virat Kohli 

the 34 year old has been in excellent form across all formats over the last 12 months and he will be looking forward to batting on this pitch after seeing Pakistan’s total on Wednesday. Kohli has always delivered against Pakistan and all eyes will be on him in this contest. He has played 13 ODIs against Pakistan in which he smashed 536 runs at an average of 48.72..

Shubman Gill 

the young right-handed opener is one of the best batters in world cricket at the moment. He has hit a double century in ODIs already this year and averages 62.47 in the format. Shubman Gill will be playing his first ever ODI against Pakistan and on the Sri Lankan pitch. He is expected to give a perfect start to the Indian innings.

Jasprit Bumrah 

the pace bowler captained the side in Ireland last month and took the Player of the Match Award after taking 4 wickets from the two completed T20I matches. Bumrah has a bowling strike rate of 17.3 in Sri Lanka where he has picked 15 wickets in 5 matches.

Ravindra Jadeja 

Ravindra Jadeja is an important all-rounder for India in this match. He is one of the players who delivers in crucial Pakistan clashes. He has played 9 ODIs against them in which he picked 10 wickets and scored 116 runs in 6 innings.


Babar Azam 

the skipper was untroubled throughout his innings hitting 14 fours and four sixes in Match 1 before being dismissed in the final over. Babar Azam has scored 158 runs in 5 ODIs against India. His confidence from the 1st match will help him to score big in this match as well.

 Iftikhar Ahmed 

the 32 year old middle order batter hit 109 not out from only 71 balls and enjoyed a 214 run partnership with the captain on this pitch against Nepal. His ability to score quick runs helps the team to accumulate extra runs towards the death overs.

the powerful quick bowler continues to pick up wickets on a regular basis for his country. He comes into this match of Asia Cup 2023 with an ODI strike-rate of 26.9. Rauf also picked a 4-wicket haul against Afghanistan recently. This will be Rauf’s first ODI against India and his lethal pace can bring some damage to the Indian batting line-up on this pitch.

Shaheen Afridi 

Shaheen Afridi will be another key pacer for Pakistan in this crucial match. Afridi has picked 78 wickets in 40 ODIs so far. He has taken 6 wickets in 3 ODIs in Sri Lanka, at an impressive bowling strike rate of 23.6
