After that shocking debacle aginst the USA on June 06, Babar Azam‘s unit is up for another daunting challenge and this time against their arch-rivals India. Their head-to-head battle against the Men in Blue tilts towards the latter though with five wins out of seven games.

Meanwhile, the Rohit Sharma-led India will be entering the contest on the back of a comfortable win against Ireland by eight wickets and what could be more satisfying than skipper Rohit (52 off 37) and Hardik Pandya (3/27) returning to form ahead of a blockbuster outing?

India’s bowling unit looks more confident after the likes of Arshdeep Singh, Mohammed Siraj, and Pandya have delivered fruitful returns with the ball in their tournament opener. The redemption of Rishabh Pant at No.3 has also allowed Virat Kohli to open the proceedings with Rohit.

Kohli, India’s superstar with the bat, does not need any introduction when it comes to a T20 World Cup match against Pakistan. The 35-year-old has smashed 308 runs in five matches at a strike rate of 132.8 against the Men in Green. Hopefully, if he gets going on Sunday then there’s looking back for Team India.

This time India’s batting has the luxury of four left-hand batters – Rishabh Pant, Shivam Dube, Ravindra Jadejaand Axar Patel. Their form with the bat will be the key to India’s success in the lower middle order.
