Pakistanis and Cricket: a love story we don’t need to elaborate on…okay we will. It’s always a riot when an international cricket tournament is about to start. From squad selection to possible clashes, it’s a nail biting process even before the tournament has started. From the looks of it Asia Cup 2022 will be no different. Pakistanis are hyped up already and are ready to see Pakistan compete under Babar Azam’s captaincy again.
The Asia Cup will be played in the United Arab Emirates from 27 August to 11 September. The squad will be as follows:
Babar Azam (Captain), Shadab Khan (Vice-captain), Asif Ali, Fakhar Zaman, Haider Ali, Haris Rauf, Iftikhar Ahmed, Khushdil Shah, Mohammad Nawaz, Mohammad Rizwan, Mohammad Wasim Jnr, Naseem Shah, Shaheen Shah Afridi, Shahnawaz Dahani, and Usman Qadir.
Pakistan will face India on Sunday 28th August. Are we ready to take the stress? BRING IT ON!
According to the Group dynamics and schedules, the arch rivals are likely to clash again in the tournament down the line as well, possibly thrice!
Twitter is already going gaga with the excitement. Scroll down to see some tweets.
