Although the mission T20 World Cup 2022 will be the utmost goal that Team India will be aiming for, before the fight for the world crown, there is a battle to be won for the continental championship. The Asia Cup 2022 is all set to be staged in the United Arab Emirates and with the tournament coming back in the T20 format this year becomes a key stepping stone for Asian teams to check their World Cup preparations.

The stage is set for the competition commencing on August 27 with the final scheduled to be held on September 11. Of course, among the several Asian rivalries, all eyes will be on the most intense and the most celebrated ones – India vs Pakistan match. This will be the first time that the two teams will meet after the Men in Green’s demolition of India in their T20 World Cup match at the Dubai International Stadium last year.

That was Pakistan’s first win over India in a World Cup match. While India will look to avenge that defeat while also preparing for their meeting in the T20 World Cup Down Under, Pakistan will look to repeat a similar result. Ahead of their face-off, here is a look at how India’s Playing XI could look like for the clash against their arch-rivals in Asia Cup 2022.

No brainer first up. Rohit Sharma will lead the team in the Asia Cup 2022 and will open the innings for India. The right-handed batter led from the front when it came to setting up a template and attacking the opposition in the T20Is against England although the team and he himself would want bigger scores than just the starts. The Hitman has traditionally struggled against left-arm fast bowlers and got out to Shaheen Shah Afridi for a duck in the T20 World Cup match last year. He will come back better prepared to deal with such challenges this year.
