DUBAI: The highlight of the Asia Cup remains a high-profile group match between arch-rivals Pakistan and India on Wednesday in Dubai.

They have a rich tradition of playing in the neighbouring state of Sharjah, where their matches took place from 1984-2000, but have not toured the United Arab Emirates since 2006 when they played a two-match series in Abu Dhabi.

These fitness drills form part of Pakistan’s preparation for the Asia Cup in the UAE and will be followed by another training camp for which the schedule is set to be announced at a later date.

The Asia Cup was originally slated to be held in India but uncertainty surrounding Pakistan’s players being granted visas by the Indian government saw the tournament moved to the UAE.

The biennial tournament gets underway on September 15 in Dubai with Pakistan opening their campaign a day later against a yet to be decided qualifier.

Pakistan have been drawn in the same group as their arch-rivals India and the blockbuster meeting between the two sides takes place on September 19, again in Dubai.
