The finals of the Aisa cup will be played on September 28 in Dubai.
In an exclusive chat with IndiaTV on "Cricket Ki Baat" show, Sehwag said he was shocked to see the scheduling. And if we end up losing the match, then there might be a problem as we all are very passionate whenever we play against Pakistan.
As per the schedule released two days back, India is to play Pakistan a day after they play a qualifier.
The Asia Cup 2018 will be hosted in UAE with India and Pakistan placed in Group A along with a qualifier while Sri Lanka, Bangladesh and Afghanistan are in Group B.
"Why is there such hue and cry over playing in the Asia Cup?". The teams participating in the qualifier cup are Hong Kong, Oman, the UAE, Malaysia, Singapore and Nepal. "We always want India to win against Pakistan but if the Indian players are exhausted then Pakistan will definitely have the advantage", he said. The match comes immediately after an encounter with one of the teams yet to be qualified which has left the former Indian opening batsman Virender Sehwag fuming. "It's really hard to play back-to-back games", he added.

Bangladesh and Sri Lanka will play the tournament opener in Dubai on September 15. There was a gap of two days in between the T20 matches in England. This is unacceptable and has to be revisited. "There appears to be zero application of mind", a senior BCCI official said according to the CricketNext report. "Maybe for the organisers, it is just a money-spinning game but for us, it is important that there be equity in scheduling", the BCCI official further added. In the inaugural edition in 1996, India and Pakistan played three ODIs in as many days with the former winning two of them. India are the defending champions, as they won the tournament defeating Bangladesh at Dhaka in 2016.
India is the 6 times title victor in the Asian Cup and yet again Kohli and his men are the favourites to clinch the title for the 7th time.
Fans in India are excited for the clash and are ready for the revenge.
