Team India hit the nets on Friday ahead of their Asia Cup Super 4 clash against arch-rivals Pakistan. Both teams had met earlier during the Group stage, with India registering a five-wicket win. Pakistan thrashed Hong Kong by 155 runs to book their place in the next round. The Board of Control for Cricket in India took to Twitter and posted a few pictures from the Rohit Sharma-led side’s net session, which was held under the watchful eyes of head coach Rahul Dravid.
