Former India opener Wasim Jaffer believes that wicket-keeper batsman Rishabh Pant doesn't deserve to be a part of India's Playing XI

Rohit Sharma has won the toss and decided to bowl first in the Asia Cup 2022 match against Pakistan. Rishabh Pant has been dropped to accommodate Dinesh Karthik in the Playing XI.

“I don’t think toss is that important. Having a score in front of us will be good for the batters. Rishabh Pant misses out as we have preferred Dinesh Karthik over him,” said Rohit Sharma.

“We wanted to bowl first but that’s not in our hands. We have two spinners and three fast bowlers in the team,” said Babar Azam.

India XI: Rohit, Rahul, Kohli, Sky, Hardik, Karthik, Jadeja, Bhuvi, Avesh, Chahal, Arshdeep

Pakistan XI: Babar (C), Rizwan, Fakhar, Iftikhar, Khushdil, Asif, Shadab, Nawaz, Naseem, Haris rauf, Dahani
