India will lock horns with Pakistan in the second match of the Super 4 stage in the ongoing Asia Cup at Dubai International Cricket Stadium on Sunday, September 4.
India faced a major blow heading into the contest as star all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja has been ruled out of the remainder of the tournament due to knee injury. Axar Patel, who was part of the reserves, has replaced him in the final 15.
On the other hand, Pakistan pacer Shahnawaz Dahani is out of the game with a suspected side strain. Mohammad Hasnain will replace him in the playing XI.
