India A will take on Pakistan A in the high-voltage final of the Emerging Asia Cup tournament on Sunday. India seems to have the upper hand under the leadership of Yash Dhull. India had easily defeated Pakistan in the league match. India defeated Bangladesh by 51 runs in the semi-finals defending 211 runs. Indian spinners Nishant Sindhu (5/20) and Manav Suthar (3/32) were impressive. Yash Dhull had played an inning of 66 runs.

Pakistan A defeated Sri Lanka by 60 runs in the semi-finals. The Pakistan team also cannot be underestimated. Many players of the team have played in the Pakistan Super League. All-rounder Mohammad Wasim Jr, captain Mohammad Harris, opener Sahibzada Farhan and fast bowler Arshad Iqbal also have a lot of experience.

Many international players in Pakistan-A team

Pakistan's team includes some players who have played international cricket at the senior level. Captain Mohammad Haris has played T20 World Cup for Pakistan last year. Apart from this, Sam Ayub, Tyeb Tahir, Mohammad Wasim Jr. and Shahnawaz Dahani are included. Wasim and Dahani were also part of the senior Pakistan team in the T20 World Cup last year.
