Cricket is still a budding sport in the United States. There are now thousands of fans wanting to tune in to the India vs Pakistan game. Most of them are non-residential Indians and South Asian origin folks working in the country.
However, ICC didn’t manage to get an official broadcasting deal in the US for Asia Cup 2022. Hence, there isn’t a TV channel or app where you can tune in to enjoy the game this time. But, don’t get sad as there’s still a way.
You just need a reliable VPN service like ExpressVPN, NordVPN, or any good one to remove Disney+ Hotstar’s geo-restrictions and watch India vs Pakistan in the United States. Although you’ll need a subscription to Hotstar which is pretty easy to get.
Previously, Willow TV and ESPN telecasted live cricket matches in the region. However, both channels have a pretty packed schedule this time. Using the VPN is your last resort.
How to Watch India vs Pakistan Asia Cup 2022 in Canada?
There’s also bad news for cricket fans in Canada as Asia Cup 2022 doesn’t have an official broadcasting partner in the region as well. Some sources have reported that YuppTV is broadcasting the tournament in Canada but the reports turned out to be false.
Thus, you can watch India vs Pakistan Asia Cup 2022 game in Canada only by connecting a reliable VPN and tuning in to the Disney+ Hotstar’s broadcast of the game. You can also use the VPN and connect to a server where YuppTV is broadcasting the game.

India vs Pakistan Match Preview & Possible Playing XI
India vs Pakistan has been the biggest rivalry in cricket for decades and stands right next to the Ashes. Fans also call it the Ashes of Asia. India is coming to this game after a brilliant 4-1 series victory against West Indies while Pakistan is coming from a 3-wicket defeat in a one-off T20I against Australia.
Both the teams know their strength and weaknesses very well. India will mostly rely on their strong top order consisting of captain Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli, KL Rahul, and Suryakumar Yadav while Pakistan’s batting will depend on Babar Azam, Rizwan, and Fakhar Zaman.
As for bowling, Pakistan has a powerful pace attack but they’ll be lacking Shaheen Shah Afridi, who absolutely decimated India’s batting in their last encounter. India is also without their ace pacer Jasprit Bumrah.
India will have high hopes from their in-form all-rounder Hardik Pandya while Pakistan will be expecting a lot from Shadab Khan.
It’s going to be an electrifying game of cricket with the predictions being very hard to do. Still, I believe India is going to complete their revenge successfully this time.
