Speaking about the national team, the Babar Azam-led side are riding high on the back of an ODI series win, 3-0 against Afghanistan. The Men in Green will now turn their attention towards the crucial Asia Cup which is scheduled to commence on Wednesday, August 30.
Babar Azam and Co. will square off against Nepal in the curtain raiser of the ACC event on August 30, at the Multan Cricket Stadium. Pakistan are placed alongside Nepal and arch-rivals team India in Group A of the Asia Cup.
The high-voltage clash between Pakistan and India will be played at the Pallekele International Cricket Stadium in Kandy, Sri Lanka, on September 2. The Men in Green will look to get off to a solid start and make their place in the ‘Super Four’ of the ACC event to get a step closer to the summit clash, which will be played on September 17.
Following the conclusion of the Asia Cup, Pakistan will shift their focus towards the 2023 ODI World Cup. The Asia Cup will act as a dress rehearsal for the marquee ICC event and therefore, Pakistan will look to make the most from the upcoming competition and obtain a core team just in time before traveling to India for the quadrennial ODI tournament.
Pakistan play their first match of the ODI World Cup against the Netherlands at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium in Hyderabad on October 6. India and Pakistan will lock swords again in the big-ticket event on October 14 at the iconic Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad.
