The Rohit Sharma-led Indian side will be up against their arch-nemesis Pakistan in the Asia Cup opener at the Dubai International Stadium on August 28.

Ahead of the blockbuster tie, BCCI president and former India captain Sourav Ganguly hade his say on the much-anticipated clash.

The Indian team will go to the UAE for the Asia Cup 2022, which returns to international cricket after a four-year hiatus, after their brief stint in Zimbabwe for the ODI series. And on August 28 at the Dubai International Stadium, the Indian team, captained by Rohit Sharma, will face off against Pakistan, their arch-enemy. Sourav Ganguly, the BCCI president and a former captain of India, spoke about the highly anticipated match prior to the big game.

In their opening match of the 2021 T20 World Cup, India will face Pakistan for the first time since their devastating 10-wicket loss at the same location. India fell to their bitter rivals in a World Cup match for the first time ever. The Asia Cup reigning champions will face Babar Azam’s team once more in 2022 T20 World Cup in Australia, less than a year after their first encounter, in an effort to exact revenge for their loss in Dubai.

In response to the fanfare surrounding the high-profile match, Ganguly told India Today that the match against Pakistan is just another game and that the Asia Cup championship is still the major priority.
