Asia Cup 2018: MS Dhoni, Shoaib Malik share light moments during practice session in Dubai - Watch

Dubai, Sep 14: The rivalry between India and Pakistan is always termed as the most-sought-after sporting event across the globe and a cricket match between these two nations set new viewership records.

India and Pakistan players are tough competitors on the field but they share good rapport off and field and enjoy each other's company. Something similar was witnessed on Friday (September 14) when India and Pakistan players prepared for the upcoming Asia Cup 2018 in Dubai.
