India vs Pakistan Tips
Perhaps the two biggest rivals in cricket meet on Sunday. India are clear favourites but Pakistan have a very good side. My best is for India to sneak over the line and get the win with KL Rahul to score.

Head to Head
Indian have won four of their last five T20I matches. The last took place in 2016 where India won by six wickets.
India come into this match in good form and the outright favourites to win the trophy. Of all the teams they are by some distance the best prepared considering that the IPL finished just days before the World Cup began and was played at the same venues.
India won both of their warm-up matches against England and Australia. In the latter match, Australia batted first and scored 152 runs. The in-form KL Rahul hit 39 runs but it was Rohit Sharma’s 60 that took them to a comfortable eight wicket win.
KL Rahul has been in incredible form with his last five scores seeing three surpass the 50-run mark and two others of 39.
India Team News
India have an abundance of talent within their squad. Conditions will determine their exact team, particularly their bowling options. But KL Rahul looks set to open alongside Sharma with Virat Kohli batting three.
Pakistan could be the surprise package at this World Cup. They have a very good side, particularly from a bowling perspective. And with Babar Azam and Mohammad Rizwan at the top of the order, runs shouldn’t be a problem.
From their two warm-up matches, Pakistan beat West Indies but lost to South Africa in their last match. Fakhar Zaman was magnificent, scoring 52 off 28 balls to take Pakistan to a 186-run total.
South Africa went on to chase the score down and win by six wickets. Other than Imad Wasim (3-19), the other bowlers struggled.
Pakistan Team News
Pakistan have a good side and it seems the only selection issue will be with how many spinners they play.
