India Vs Pakistan Asia Cup 2022: Pitch Report
By and large, Dubai International cricket stadium has supported the batters, and we expect the same trend to be followed this time. The average score here is 150 runs, and the captain who wins the toss would like to chase first.
The pace bowlers can also expect a good bounce from the wicket. The second innings become more suitable for batting as the early moisture dries up.

India Vs Pakistan Dream11 Prediction
India and Pakistan are two of the most balanced sides participating in the Asia Cup 2022. India has a solid batting lineup and some world-class batters. They bat deep with R Ashwin and Bhuvi coming lower down the order. They have quality spinners with Ashwin, Jadeja, and Chahal, who are capable of restricting the Pakistan batters.
Team India has a comparatively inexperienced pace attack. Bhuvneshwar Kumar is the alone bowler having experience playing in a tournament of such a magnitude before. It will be a mental test for Arshdeep and Avesh Khan to give company to Bhuvi in the pace bowling department.
On the contrary, Pakistan has suffered a huge blow, with the premier pace bowler Shaheen Shah Afridi getting injured and being ruled out of the Asia Cup 2022 and the ICC T20 World Cup. The batting order of Pakistan also has firepower, with Babar Azam and Rizwan opening the innings.
Memories will still be fresh for both of them, the last time they chased a score of 150+ against India without getting separated. The middle order includes some explosive batters, such as Haider Ali and Asif Ali, who can provide the finishing touch to the innings. Their bowling lineup is also strong with a variety of spinners and a young and energetic pace attack.
It will be difficult to predict who will win the India vs Pakistan Asia Cup 2022 match. Still, if we have to decide on the team having the upper hand, it will be India.
They have more experience in the batting order and players who can handle pressure. Dream X1 winning prediction says India and Pakistan have a winning percentage chance of 60-40%, respectively.
