Pakistan won the toss and elected to bat first against India in the highly anticipated Asia Cup match at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium.

“We want to score over 280 in the match,” Sarfraz said after winning the toss.

The game is the first between the sub-continent rivals since Pakistan thumped India by 180 runs in the final of the Champions Trophy at The Oval in June last year.

The two teams are facing each other for the first time in the United Arab Emirates since 2006, the last of their regular matches which were also held in Sharjah between 1984-2000.
