India Vs Pakistan Dream XI Winning Prediction

India and Pakistan will be meeting for the third time on the cricket field this year. In the Asia Cup 2022, India defeated Pakistan in the first match but lost in the second one. Indian team’s batting looks settled, with key players in form. But, the major issue is their bowling.

Shami has replaced Bumrah in the squad and he will be crucial, considering his pace and bounce. Indian bowlers have leaked runs with the bowl in recent times. If they improve their bowling, they will have an upper hand in this match.

Pakistan has played reasonably good cricket over the last few months. They lost to Sri Lanka in the Asia Cup 2022 but has a good outing overall. In the 7-match T20 series against England at home, they lost the series but gave a very close fight.

Pakistan has recently won the tri-nation series featuring New Zealand and Bangladesh. They are peeking at the right time. The team looks good on paper and if they iron out their middle-order issues, they will be very difficult to beat.
