India vs Pakistan T20 World Cup


I keep saying this often and have no reservations about repeating that India vs Pakistan is perhaps the biggest match of the entire T20 World Cup group phases. This Group A match will be played out at the Nassau County International Cricket Stadium in New York on Sunday.

Losing is non-negotiable for either side when it comes to India vs Pakistan. More so for Pakistan this time, as they were beaten by the USA last time out. Will that see them bounce back against their archrivals? It is hard to predict a winner here, and I am backing India on the opening partnership score.

  • Pakistan have conceded the most runs for the opening partnership in 5 of their last 6 matches (T20Is)
  • India scored the highest opening partnership in 3 of their last 5 World Cup matches (T20Is)
  • India have won 6 of their 7 matches against Pakistan in World Cups (T20Is)

Head to Head


India has played Pakistan in 12 T20Is so far, with the Men in Blue winning eight and losing three. One match was tied, which was then won by India in a bowl-out  back in the 2007 World Cup.

The last time these sides played was in the 2022 World Cup, when India won by four wickets.

India Form


India started the tournament in a breezy fashion, winning by eight wickets against Ireland. That game was played at this venue and lasted just over 28 overs.

Batting first, Ireland were skittled for just 96 runs in 16 overs. Hardik Pandya took three wickets, while Jasprit Bumrah and Arshdeep Singh took two wickets each.

The chase was made into a stroll, as Rohit Sharma (52 off 37) gave India a solid start. Rishabh Pant (36 not out off 26) added the finishing touches to win the game in 12.2 overs.

India Team News


Rohit Sharma retired hurt in the first match, but the knock isn’t likely to see him drop out of this crucial fixture. There could be a serious thought to bring in Kuldeep Yadav in place of Axar Patel or Ravindra Jadeja.

Pakistan Form


Pakistan had the worst possible start to the tournament, losing to the United States in the Super Over. The game was tied at 159 runs in the 20 overs before the USA scored 18 and restricted Pakistan to 13.

Batting first, the Green Caps scored 159 for 7, with captain Babar Azam scoring 44 and Shadab Khan’s 40 off 25 balls giving a late impetus. They still looked to have lost some momentum at the start.

The worries were compounded when the USA gave them a fright in the chase. The last over started with the USA needing 15 to win, and Haris Rauf conceded 14, with a boundary scored off the last ball.

Pakistan Team News


Pakistan could bring in Imad Wasim for one of the seamers, while Azam Khan’s position could also come under scrutiny.

Verdict

Pakistan likes being cornered, as it usually brings the best out of their side. It’s an open secret that they are in the worst of form, coming into this big game and losing their last three completed T20Is. Will that give India an edge? I certainly think so, but I am backing this game to be competitive. Back India to score the highest opening partnership.
