Share

One of the biggest rivalries in the cricketing world is all set to be reignited at the ICC World Twenty20 as India will face off against Pakistan.

MS Dhoni will be crucial in the clash

The neighbours have a long running history when it comes to all formats of the match with a special sense of excitement especially in the Twenty20s. The match, which will take place in Eden Gardens, is expected to have a packed crowd.

Form:

India comes into the match after a shocking defeat at the hands of New Zealand. Suffering such a defeat in the first match after being tagged as the favourites to win the tournament was clearly something demoralizing. As for Pakistan, their batsmen showed some real class to overcome Bangladesh in their first match. This gives them momentum and this could come in handy against their arch rivals.

What the captain said:

Former Pakistan captain Misbah-Ul-Haq said that his team would be looking to perform just like they did in the first match.

“If Pakistan play to their potential and perform like the first match against Bangladesh, then it will be difficult for India to beat Shahid Afridi team,” he said.

History favours India. Pakistan is yet to defeat their rivals in a major ICC tournament. However, Pakistan has never lost a limited-overs match against India in Kolkata having won four out of four One Day international matches played at the stadium. One of these records will certainly be broken today.

Players to watch out:

As for India, it was only Dhoni that stood tall against the New Zealand bowling attack and he will be the player to watch out today as well. For Pakistan, it would be Shahid Afridi. Despite all the criticism, Afridi is a dangerous batsman that could get India into trouble.

Teams:

India: MS Dhoni (c and wk), R Ashwin, Jasprit Bumrah, Shikhar Dhawan, Harbhajan Singh, Ravindra Jadeja, Virat Kohli, Mohammed Shami, Pawan Negi, Ashish Nehra, Hardik Pandya, Ajinkya Rahane, Suresh Raina, Rohit Sharma, Yuvraj Singh.

Pakistan: Shahid Afridi (c), Mohammad Hafeez, Shoaib Malik, Mohammad Irfan, Sharjeel Khan, Wahab Riaz, Mohammad Nawaz, Mohammad Sami, Khalid Latif, Mohammad Amir, Umar Akmal, Sarfraz Ahmed (wk), Imad Wasim, Anwar Ali, Khurram Manzoor.
