India and Pakistan will start as the favorites to win the Asia Cup 2022.

The men in blue, currently ranked the number 1 team in the ICC T20 team rankings, have played a good brand of cricket for the last 1 year.

They have a well-settled team that can outsmart the opposition on any given day.

Pakistan, on the other hand, also looks like a formidable team. They have performed well in the t20 format since the ICC T20 World Cup 2021 when the men in green reached the finals. They have a few exceptional talents, such as Md Rizwan, Babar Azam, Shaheen Shah Afridi, etc., who can be very lethal on any given day. If Pakistan can replicate its performance in the ICC T20 World Cup 2021, it will be invincible.
