    While we wait, here is former Pakistan captain Mohammad Hafeez speaking about how India needs to find a way to handle pressure in the knockout stages.

  • September 02, 2023 15:16
    IND 15/0 in 4 overs

    Naseem sends in a pacy outswinger, well out from Gill’s reach. Naseem maintains impeccable control with his deliveries outside the off-stump and Gill is content to shoulder arms.

Another yorker and Rohit does well to bend low to dig that one out from the middle-stump line. Shaheen probes Rohit with another straight delivery and the India captain uses his soft hands to guide the ball just past the bowler.

  • September 02, 2023 15:09
    IND 9/0 in 2 overs

    Naseem Shah from the opposite end. He starts with a fine delivery on length outside the off-stump and Rohit leaves it on length. Naseem pushes the ball forward and it keeps dangerously low as it moves towards the keeper. That’s going to put some doubt in the batters’ minds. A single to follow. Loud shout as Naseem thuds the ball high onto Gill’s pads. Gill errs by moving to the backfoot and attempting a flick against a quick delivery. Naseem goes wider this time and Rohit dabs the ball down to third for a single.

  • September 02, 2023 15:00
    IND 6/0 in 1 over

    Shaheen at the top of his mark, Rohit on strike. A slip, fine-leg and a deep third in place. Shaheen starts with a perfect inswinging yorker and Rohit digs it out from the blockhole towards cover. Shaheen slides one in and Rohit flicks the ball past mid-wicket for FOUR and he’s off the blocks. Is that a drop? Yes, it is as the ball burst through Nawaz within the circle. Close! Shorter length and the ball seams in sharply to cut Rohit in half. The ball is a touch too high as it brushes the pads. Full, angling in again and Rohit works it towards the short mid-wicket. An inside-edge down to fine-leg for a single. Wide down leg from Shaheen. Another inswinging delivery on the fuller side and Gill tentatively guides it towards the short mid-wicket fielder.

    TOSS: India wins toss, opts to bat

    Rohit: We’re gonna bat first. There is a bit of weather around, but can’t think much about it. Got to play good cricket, you need to embrace the challenge, embrace the situation. We had some time off after the West Indies series. Everyone was up for those drills and challenges in Bangalore. Let’s see what we can achieve in this tournament. It’s a quality tournament with quality opposition. At the end of the day, we need to see what we can achieve as a team. Iyer is back, Bumrah is back and we have three seamers with Shardul and Siraj. Got two spinners - Kuldeep and Jadeja.

    Babar Azam: We would have batted first, but toss is not in our hands. We have played a lot of cricket here, so we know the conditions. Top teams are playing so Asia Cup is good. We’ll try to do our best. We are playing with the same combination, no changes. Performing well always gives you confidence, we’ll try to capitalize. It’s a high-intensity match, we’ll try to be calm and composed.

    Pitch Report

    Sanjay Manjrekar: A high-quality and unique pitch. Fast bowlers can get some seam, the spinners will get some turn, and a good batter can also score a century on this wicket. With DLS in the picture, the captain winning the toss might prefer to bowl first.

    Rohit Sharma: Need to understand when to take risks

    Daddy hundreds. That’s the term associated with Rohit Sharma, the ODI batter. In the recent past though, the India captain - the only batter with three double hundreds in the 50-over-a-side format - has adopted a different strategy of preferring strike rate improvement over putting a price tag on his wicket.
