Asia Cup is one of the highly rated tournaments to take place ever in the world. After the World Cup and the Champions Trophy, the battle between all the Asian giants is viewed with a lot of interests such that it gains popularity all over the world.

The talk of the town happens to be the India-Pakistan clash as fans from both sides wait in anticipation as this is the only other tournament after ICC events where they get to see the epic rivalry between the two sub-continent powerhouses.

Over the years, Sri Lanka has been the most consistent team but the men in blue have attained glory on most six occasions ever since 1984. However, Pakistan have witnessed success only twice in the history of the tournament.

Going into the tournament, India and Pakistan are the teams to beat as both the squads look strong on the paper. Even in past years, both the nations have produced a plethora of performers who have gone on to create records at the World stage.

We take a ride down the memory lane to form an all-time India-Pakistan Asia Cup XI:


Openers: Sourav Ganguly and Sachin Tendulkar

The intimidating Indian opening pair was one of the best of their times. The duo of Sourav Ganguly and Sachin Tendulkar is perfect for any opening pair in white-ball cricket.

They tend to complement each other well and have known for many years, it was always easy to read the non-striker’s mind and react without any second thoughts.

Sachin, who played the anchor’s role while Ganguly was the aggressor at the beginning of the innings.

They share a huge camaraderie and display immense respect for each other. Their exploits at the top for India were instrumental in laying foundations for others who followed.

In Asia Cup, Sachin had third-highest 971 runs in his 21 innings while Ganguly mustered 518 runs from his 12 innings in the multi-nation tournament.
