IND vs PAK Asia Cup 2022: Dubai International Cricket Stadium, Dubai Pitch Report And Weather Conditions

India and Pakistan will go against each other on 28th August in Dubai. This will be the first game for each side in Asia Cup 2022. Here, we take a look at the pitch report of Dubai International Cricket Stadium and the weather conditions in Dubai for the IND vs PAK Asia Cup 2022 match.

Both India and Pakistan are not new to the pitch in Dubai. While Pakistan has played a lot of their home games at this venue, the Indian players are also used to the venue through the IPL.

Pakistan won the game the last time when both teams clashed. That said, India is expected to come out better on Sunday. This is mainly due to the form of players such as Suryakumar Yadav, Hardik Pandya and Bhuvneshwar Kumar.

India and Pakistan clashed in the 2021 T20 World Cup at this venue. Although it was a comfortable victory for the chasing side in that encounter, there is only a 52% chance of the side batting second winning the game when you take into consideration the 75 T20I games that have been played here so far. Hence, it will be interesting to see the decision by Rohit Sharma or Babar Azam after winning the toss.

The average score batting first is just 143. As seen in recent years, slower bowlers will be in demand on these tracks. Martin Guptill‘s 93 in 2021 is the best batting display on this track while Imad Wasim’s 5/14 in 2016 is the best bowling show on this venue till now.
