Former New Zealand all-rounder Scott Styris feels India has the ability to squash every team in the Asia Cup, including Pakistan.

Scott Styris, while speaking on SPORTS18’s daily sports news show ‘SPORTS OVER THE TOP’, commented :

“Well, as we know, India has a very strong T20 league as well. I think it’s the ability to come together and play the style and brand of cricket that best suits your players.

“I thought that was the big trick that India missed at the last T20 World Cup as it took them about two games.”

“The two losses they had before they just started to go after the opposition, impose themselves with the talent and skill that they’ve got.”

“I want to see India do that in this Asia Cup,” Styris said

Styris talked about the mindset and attitude of the Indian team

“I want them to impose themselves on the other teams and l they’ve got the ability to do that, I think they’ve got the ability to squash everybody, including Pakistan, in this Asia Cup.”

But if they’re going to go into this with this middling attitude of how they want to play the game, then I don’t think it’s going to happen.”

Styris also spoke about the upcoming India vs Pakistan Asia Cup Clash

“I think that’s where Pakistan has figured things out a little bit more. So yes, they’ve got great T20 competition, but so does India.”

“I don’t think that’s going to be a defining moment or factor in this match,” said Styris.

Team India will begin their campaign in a high-octane clash against arch-rivals Pakistan on August 28th.

The mega event feature five teams- India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, and Afghanistan.

The tournament will be an important one as teams look to prepare themselves before the T20 World Cup begins in Australia this October.

Team India has won the most titles (7) in the tournament history which was last played in the ODI format.

Team India last won the Asia Cup title in 2018 by beating Bangladesh in Dubai in a thriller

The super four stages of the tournament start on September 3rd and the final will be played on September 11th in Dubai.

The matches start at 6 pm local time and 7.30 pm In India, with the majority of games in Dubai and three in Sharjah.
