A mouth-watering India vs Pakistan clash at Asia Cup 2018 is a moment to savour for fans from both the nations. It is only after a gap of one year that these two teams will face each other, and Network 18 Group Editor (Sports) Gaurav Kalra talks about the importance of the match for fans from respective countries. The last time India played Pakistan was in 2017 Champions Trophy final, which the former lost convincingly. Since then Pakistan has emerged as a formidable batting unit and Kalra feels that it could be a big challenge for Indian bowlers to tackle the opposition batsmen. On the other hand, Pakistani batsmen will have their task cut out against wrist spinners Kuldeep Yadav and Yuzvendra Chahal.
