Former Pakistan cricket star Dansh Kaneria believes India have a slight advantage over Pakistan ahead of the Asian Cup clash.

“It’s a bit early to tell. I want to see KL Rahul’s form in the Zimbabwe series as he is coming back from injury. Then there is a question about Rohit Sharma recovering from his back injury In the Pakistan squad, Naseem “Shah was also limping with his knee injury and then Shaheen Shah Afridi’s fitness issue. There are few players from both sides who are on the injured list,” Danish Kaneria said.who played 61 Tests and 18 ODIs for Pakistan, told indiatoday.in.


“For now India has that impact, they can come back because they’ve played a good amount of T20 cricket. So 60% in India and 40% in Pakistan. 60% in India because of their strength of Indian spin bowling is good with Ravichandran Ashwin, (Ravi) Bishnoi, (Yuzvendra) Chahal, (Ravindra) Jadeja and fast bowlers Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Arshdeep Singh who can do wonders for the Indian team Pakistan has to look into his bowling department, if there is no Shaheen Shah Afridi then who will pick him up?”
