India and Pakistan do not play each other frequently on the cricket pitch. But when the two teams do, cricket ceases to be a sport - it becomes a thriller!
The two teams will face each other on March 2 and with all eyes on the Asia Cup title, will look to register a resounding win at Mirpur, Bangladesh.

India skipper Virat Kohli has tried to downplay the hype around the India vs Pakistan match - scheduled to be played on March 2.
A game against Pakistan is always a hyped game for us, obviously a big pressure match. We take every game the same way,” he told reporters in Dhaka.
The Pakistan team wants to leave nothing to chance. In the last encounter - Champions Trophy match in Birmingham in June 2013, Pakistan lost to India in a rain-curtailed match.
The time may be perfect for revenge.
Defending champions Pakistan will look at seniors, including Shahid Afridi (in pic) to come good against India.
Under new coach Moin Khan (not in picture) and with the guidance of veterans like Afridi, youngsters like Ahmed Shehzad (left) can overcome jitters and defeat India.
Talent is not in short measure in the Pakistan team.
Skilled all-rounder Fawad Alam is seen here during a fielding drill and players like him can be dangerous against India unless the Men in Blue devise definite strategies to combat their threat.
Overall, cricket is expected to win once again regardless of the result as a packed stadium is expected for the epic clash.
