Pakistan playing XI squad against India unveiled

Pakistan is poised to maintain an unaltered lineup for their impending showdown against India this Sunday, adhering to the same set of players who clinched victory against Bangladesh in their most recent outing. This continuity in the Men in Green's team composition as they gear up for the Asia Cup 2023's Super 4 round.

In their previous encounter, Pakistan made a strategic substitution, introducing Faheem Ashraf in lieu of Mohammad Nawaz, a decision that bore fruit as Ashraf's economical bowling performance validated his inclusion. Nawaz, who was omitted, failed to secure a wicket during the rain-affected India match, yielding 55 runs across eight overs.

In contrast, his replacement showcased prowess by capturing a solitary wicket while conceding a mere 13 runs in two overs against Nepal.

Sources divulged that the official squad for Sunday's pivotal clash will be solidified following a training session held today. Unfortunately, Pakistan's practice session on Friday confronted weather-related disruptions in the Sri Lankan capital, potentially impacting their preparations for this high-stakes encounter.

Amidst these developments, Pakistan's captain, Babar Azam, voiced his unwavering faith in his team, particularly the pace bowlers, underscoring their potential to secure victories in the upcoming matches
