"60 percent to India and 40 percent to Pakistan"- Ex-Pak star predicts India's win in Asia Cup 2022

The much-anticipated clash between the two arch rivals is scheduled for Sunday, August 28. It is time for India and Pakistan to square off in their Asia Cup 2022 campaign openers at Dubai International Stadium. However, every team is preparing for the upcoming T20 World Cup.

So the Asia Cup will be an ideal opportunity to test all the Asian teams' preparations ahead of the mega event. Notably, both India and Pakistan met in the last T20 World Cup in the UAE last time. And it was a humiliating defeat for the Men in Blue by 10 wickets.

So this will be a good chance to take revenge from the neighbours this time around. On the other hand, Pakistan are playing good cricket under the leadership of Babar Azam, so it will be a big challenge for the Indians. Many former cricketers and cricket pundits have shared their chances for the upcoming clash.

Former Pakistan spinner, Danish Kaneria, reckons that India has an upper hand over Pakistan for the upcoming match. In an interaction with IndiaToday.in, Kaneria also pointed out the injury concerns in both camps. He said KL Rahul's form is important as he is coming from an injury.

He also pointed out the Indian skipper, Rohit Sharma, who has a back issue. Kaneria further spoke about the Pakistani camp. He said that Naseem Shah was struggling during the matches in the ongoing series against the Netherlands, while Shaheen Afridi is still not completely fit.

Kaneria said on the chances of both teams, "For now, India have that impact. They can come back because they have been playing a good amount of T20 cricket. So 60 percent to India and 40 percent to Pakistan. 60 percent to India because of their bowling strength."

He pointed out that because India has gone with a spin-heavy attack, that can be game-changing on the pitches in the UAE. He concluded that if Shaheen is not fit, Pakistan will be in big trouble in the Asia Cup.
