Asia Cup: India send Pakistan crashing for 162

  • Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Kedar Jadhav picked up three wickets each to send Pakistan crashing for a lowly 162 in the Group A match of the Asia Cup in Dubai on Wednesday.
    Electing to bat, Pakistan kept losing wickets at regular intervals with only Shoaib Malik (43) and Babar Azam (47) able to keep the Indian bowlers as the duo put on 82 runs for the third wicket to add some respectability to the total.
    Bhuvneshwar rocked Pakistan early as he sent back both openers Imam-Ul-Haq (2) and Fakhar Zaman (0) in his first two overs. He got the wicket of Hasan Ali in the final over to claim three for 15 in seven overs.
    Jadhav triggered Pakistan's collapse in the middle overs as he registered wonderful figures of three for 23 in nine overs, while Jasprit Bumrah claimed two for 23.
    Pakistan and India have both qualified for the Super Four stage from Group A after both beat Hong Kong in their opening matches.
