Dhaka: Mar 18, 2012

Pakistan captain Misbah-ul-Haq won the toss and chose to bat against India in their Asia Cup 5th match at Shere Bangla National Stadium in Dhaka on Sunday.

India have to beat their arch-rivals to stay alive in the tournament as the shock defeat against Bangladesh has thrown their campaign into jeopardy.

Pakistan, on the other hand, have already secured a berth in the final with victories over Bangladesh and Sri Lanka and will be under less pressure unlike the Indians.

Teams

India: Gautam Gambhir, Sachin Tendulkar, Virat Kohli, Suresh Raina, Rohit Sharma, MS Dhoni(wk/c), Yusuf Pathan, Irfan Pathan, Ravichandran Ashwin, Praveen Kumar, Ashok Dinda

Pakistan: Mohammad Hafeez, Nasir Jamshed, Younis Khan, Misbah-ul-Haq(c), Umar Akmal(wk), Shahid Afridi, Hammad Azam, Umar Gul, Saeed Ajmal, Wahab Riaz, Aizaz Cheema
