The Rohit Sharma-led Indian side started off their 2022 T20 Asia Cup on a brilliant note with a thrilling five-wicket win over Pakistan in their tournament opener on Sunday.

The India-Pakistan encounter kept everyone watching on edge of their seats. But this was not the end of the rivalry between the two nations.

For the supporters from the two countries as well as for cricket fans all over the globe, a potential clash between the two nations awaits in the Asia Cup 2022.

India and Pakistan — along with qualifier Hong Kong — are placed in Group A. If the two arch-rivals register wins over the qualifier, India will top the group with 4 points while Pakistan will have 2 points.

With the format of the Asia Cup 2022 tweaked a bit for this year, top-2 teams from the group seal a place in the Super 4. According to the format, India will be A1 and Pakistan will be A2. And as per the schedule, A1 will play A2 on September 4 (Sunday). Meaning there is a high probability of at least another India—Pakistan game in the second round before the final.

Ultimate battle

Both teams are favourites to win the competition and if everything goes according to the script, the arch-rivals will clash in the ultimate battle for the title in the final on September 11 (Sunday) in Dubai.
