Hello, good evening and a very warm welcome to you all on this live cricket blog of the big match in Asia Cup T20 2016 tournament, between the arch rivals India and Pakistan.

They last met in the ICC Cricket World Cup 2015 match in February last year, which India won comfortably by 76 runs. In Asia Cup 2016 tournament, India have already made a winning start when they slammed Bangladesh by 45 runs, and on the other hand, this will be the first match for Pakistan. LIVE CRICKET SCORECARD: India vs Pakistan, Asia Cup 2016, Match 4 at Dhaka

The two teams were supposed to clash late last year, but the tour never materialised with the Indian government not allowing their team to play Pakistan even at a neutral venue. However, for the frenetic fans from both the sides, there are as many as two matches within one month. India and Pakistan will also be clashing in a league round match of the ICC World T20 2016, on March 19 at Dharamsala! LIVE BLOG IN HINDI: India vs Pakistan, Asia Cup 2016, Match 4 at Dhaka

What. A. Match.

It was always going to be Indian batsmen versus Pakistani bowlers, and that got this India-Pakistan game the thrill. Virat Kohli played perhaps his greatest T20I innings, and what should I say about Yuvraj Singh, he keeps getting better and better! India continue to dominate Pakistan, as they have won 5 games compared to Pakistan’s 1. There was one tie somewhere in between.

Virat Kohli gets the Man of the Match, but Mohammad Aamer deserved too! They should have split it!

An outside edge flies to third man where second slip should have been. Misfield on the second ball, single taken. AND WOULD YOU BELIEVE THIS!!! UMAR AKMAL has hit the umpire while he was trying to break the stumps. And he is apologising. Delay in the game as the umpire was visibly in pain. Kohli is very, very watchful here. Plays three dots on the trot, was beaten on the final ball. BATTING: Virat Kohli 6 (15), Yuvraj Singh 5 (8)

LIVE CRICKET SCORE & UPDATES, India 13/3 in 4 overs: Vintage Yuvraj! That flow of the bat piercing the field, FOUR for India through cover off Mohammad Irfan.

Rohit gone second ball, the ball nipped back in! Rohit got a good ball, typical Aamer. Kohli is in, away with a single off the first ball. Wide ball, runs for India. Pakistan cannot afford that.

OUT! Ajinkya Rahane lbw Mohammad Aamer 0 (2)

OUT! Rohit Sharma lbw Mohammad Aamer 0 (2)

Indians are there in the middle, and Mohammad Aamer has the ball. Watch out.

And I ask it again: Exactly why were Pakistan wanting to bat? Was that meaningless boasting keeping in mind that their bowlers are the force to reckon with and not the batting? It was typical school-boy cricket from the Pakistani team.  Will not talk about their calling in the middle, it was atrocious to say the least.

LIVE CRICKET SCORE & UPDATES, Pakistan 83/9 in 17.3 overs: Pandya ends the proceedings! Aamer’s middle-stump is knocked down, and Pakistan’s innings ends at 83 in 17.3 overs. And they said they wanted to bat first. BATTING: Mohammad Irfan 0 (0)

BATTING: Sarfraz Ahmed 13 (15), Mohammad Sami 0 (0)

OUT! Wahab Riaz lbw Ravindra Jadeja 4 (12)

LIVE CRICKET SCORE & UPDATES, Pakistan 51/6 in 11 overs: No sign of Ravi Ashwin or Ravi Jadeja yet. Pandya continues. Single off the first ball. Dot on the second, Sarfraz defends.

LIVE CRICKET SCORE & UPDATES, Pakistan 42/6 in 8 overs: Shahid Afridi comes out in such  desperate times for Pakistan. Sarfraz is off the mark with a four past backward point. A wild heave from the batsman lands safely, else it was the 6th wicket. These two can, BUT A RUN OUT!  Greed to take two makes Pakistan lost their 6th wicket, Afridi run out! India in complete command. BATTING: Sarfraz Ahmed 5 (3),

OUT! Shahid Afridi run out 2 (2)

LIVE CRICKET SCORE & UPDATES, Pakistan 32/3 in 5.5 overs: Bumrah strays down the leg, a FOUR to start with via leg bye. Pakistan have not looked convincing but still have got runs thanks to Indians going a bit off the track. LOUD appeal for leg before as the ball nipped back in. Maybe missing the leg. Third is a dot. Replay show the ball was hitting the leg. Malik hits the fourth too straight, the ball crashes into the wickets. VIRAT KOHLI YOU BEAUTY! Manzoor and Malik have a massive confusion, Kohli pounces on the ball and Manzoor is RUN OUT! BATTING:  Shoaib Malik 4 (6)

OUT! Khurram Manzoor run out (Virat Kohli) 10 (18)

LIVE CRICKET SCORE & UPDATES, Pakistan 28/2 in 5 overs: Nehra continues. Manzoor hit high on his backfoot first up. The second ball is a dot. Virat Kohli in action with a big dive to save runs. Manzoor comes down the wicket, a misfield by Hardik Pandya at mid on gives Pakistan 2 extra runs. Manzoor given a lifeline by the umpire! LOUD appeal as the batsman makes room to hit on leg side, an obvious edge not heard by umpire. Kohli seen yelling out expletives! There was NOISE! Dhoni seemed LIVID. Excellent comeback by Nehra, only 2 runs off it. BATTING: Khurram Manzoor 10 (18), Shoaib Malik 4 (3)

LIVE CRICKET SCORE & UPDATES, Pakistan 26/2 in 4 overs: Shoaib Malik comes on. Beaten all corners on the first ball. FOUR!

Manzoor then hits past Jadeja at point, and the fielder chases well to save a four. Sharjeel on strike now. DOT. What are these shots, by the way? Aimless swinging of the bat. Sharjeel now hits in the air on the leg side, Bumrah’s dive saves a four. Expensive over this for India. And Nehra strays down the leg again. WIDE. 12 off the first 4 balls already. Two wides in that. Fifth legit ball is a dot. Another dot to end the over.  BATTING: Sharjeel Khan 3 (2), Khurram Manzoor 8 (12)

LIVE CRICKET SCORE & UPDATES, Pakistan 5/1 in 2 overs: Jasprit Bumrah comes on for the second over. He has two slips in place. OUT!?? NO! Height was the issue. A very loud appeal against Manzoor first up. India building pressure here. Beaten all corners on the second ball, third ball is a dot. Manzoor, I must say, has dubious footwork. Three dots on the trot now. Four on the trot, Manzoor plays straight to mid on. And fifth dot now, inside edge into the pads. It’s a MAIDEN! BATTING: Sharjeel Khan 0 (0), Khurram Manzoor 1 (8)

LIVE CRICKET SCORE & UPDATES, Pakistan 5/1 in 1 overs: Mohammad Hafeez comes out to open. With him is Sharjeel Khan! Ashish Nehra’s first ball is a dot. FOUR! Hafeez cracks through cover for the first runs in the game. Excellent stroke that. Third ball stays low and Hafeez gets his bat on it, a dot. WICKET! Nehra has his revenge as he gets Hafeez caught behind by MS Dhoni! India strike early! Khurram Manzoor comes in, defends the first ball he faces. Single to end the over, Mazoor off the mark.  BATTING: Sharjeel Khan 0 (0), Khurram Manzoor 1 (2)

OUT! Mohammad Hafeez c MS Dhoni b Ashish Nehra 4 (4)

6.50 PM IST: We are about 10 minutes away from the start of this India versus Pakistan match. Too much being said about the firepower of both the teams. If India are very strong in batting, Pakistan have a lethal bowling attack. Interesting equation this, isn’t it?

6.30 PM IST: TOSS! INDIA HAVE WON THE TOSS, THEY WILL FIELD FIRST. Pakistan too have as many as 4 fast bowlers!

BIG NEWS: Shikhar Dhawan will miss this match, Ajinkya Rahane has been drafted in. Dhawan is carrying a niggle, not sure what exactly it is.

6.18 PM IST: We are about 12 minutes away from the toss. Here’s the Indian cricket team in a huddle before the big game:

 

6.12 PM IST: So this is how the pitch is going to look like:

 

6.10 PM IST: Mohammad Aamer vs Virat Kohli, how big a contest will this be? The Pakistani bowler watched the Indian run machine train raptly in the build-up to this game during the training session.

6.02 PM IST: Good news for the Indian fans: MS Dhoni is fit! The Indian captain is warming up with a light game of football with his teammates before this massive game!

India will be led by MS Dhoni, who managed to get fit right on time for their opening match versus Bangladesh. India produced an all-round performance on Wednesday night to slam the hosts, who had surprisingly dished out a green-top wicket and had played as many as four seamers to get the better of a star-studded Indian batting line-up.

On the other hand, many of the Pakistani cricketers are coming off the first edition of the Pakistan Super League (PSL). They might face some issues adjusting to the conditions in Bangladesh, as so far the wickets for the Asia Cup T20 2016 tournament have been green-top pitches compared to the batting-friendly decks they had for PSL 2016.
