Asia Cup: India to Face Pakistan. Players to Watch

Rohit Sharma

Rohit Sharma scored fifties in his last two innings. His form was best seen against Pakistan in the group game when he scored 52 runs out of 39 balls, mostly contributed by his six 4s and three 5s. Against Bangladesh, in the Super Four stage, his performance was a match-winning unbeaten 83.

Shikhar Dhawan

Shikhar Dhawan scored in all the three matches. Against Hong Kong he scored 127 and added 86 runs playing against Pakistan. In the third he scored 46 out of 54 balls.

Kedar Jadhav

In the first match against Pakistan Kedar Jadhav was the star performer. The all-rounder became the nightmare bowler for the Pak players as he snuffed out their hopes.

Kuldeep Yadav

Even though he has taken just three wickets in three matches, the slow left-arm chinaman bowler is player to look as he took one wicket against Pakistan, the top-scorer Babar Azam, giving 37 runs in eight overs.

Bhuvneshwar Kumar

Bhuvi took six wickets until now in Asia Cup and was also man-of-the-match playing against Pakistan when he bowled seven overs giving 15 runs and taking three wickets.

Jasprit Bumrah

Jasprit Bumrah took two wickets against Pakistan giving 23 runs in 7.1 overs. He bowled two maiden overs too. Playing against Bangladesh in Super Four he took three wickets.
