In a treat of a match between India and Pakistan, Hardik Pandya bowled and batted India to a spectacular victory. Fans were treated to a classic India-Pakistan match with a field that suited both teams' talented fast bowlers because the two proud teams haven't played a tight game in a few years. Hardik Pandya grabbed three key wickets in the middle overs, while Bhuvneshwar Kumar took four, as India bowled out Pakistan for 147 in their first Asia Cup match on Sunday. Pandya finished with stats of 3/25 in 4 overs, and Pakistan's top scorer was opener Mohammed Rizwan, who made a subdued 43 from 42 balls. Bhuvneshwar, a veteran seamer, though, had the best stats (4 for 26). Earlier, India chose to field after winning the toss. Dinesh Karthik's power hitting was favoured by India over Rishabh Pant's to accommodate Kohli up front. Without their top paceman Shaheen Shah Afridi, Pakistan gave Naseem Shah his debut and chose Shahnawaz Dahani over Mohammad Hasnain for their starting XI.
