The most-awaited clash between India and Pakistan will be seen again in cricket after last year's Champions Trophy 2017 final. Both the countries are in the same group for the upcoming Asia Cup 2018 which is scheduled to be played in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) in September.
Defending Champions India will clash with arch-rivals Pakistan on September 19, and Sarfraz Ahmed is confident of a good performance in the high-voltage game.
“We will perform our best against India in Asia Cup,” Sarfraz told reporters during an Independence Day event in Karachi. “We will go well-prepared to play against India.”
India will have to play their first two group stage games on consecutive days and that hasn't pleased BCCI. They showed objection on the schedule as they will have to play against Pakistan just after a day of their opening game which could be hectic for them. As per reports, we may get to see a new schedule in the upcoming days.
India, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, and Afghanistan are all confirmed participants while the remaining spot is still up for grabs amongst UAE, Singapore, Oman, Nepal, Malaysia and Hong Kong.
India is currently playing Test series against England and the series will get over on September 11.
