The high-voltage, most-watched, most anticipated, and the most cheered clash of the ICC T20 World Cup 2021, India vs Pakistan is set to kick-start tonight at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium, 7:00 PM PST.
The wait of the lookouts finally has come to an end as the arch-rivals no more encounter in any bilateral series. India and Pakistan last met in 2012 and since then, they only rival in the ICC, ACC events. Their last encounter was the ICC ODI World Cup 2019 game.
It is pertinent to mention that Pakistan are yet to win in a World Cup match, ODI or T20I, versus India. So far, the two teams have met five times in the history of T20 World Cup with India having an edge in all.
On the one hand, the men in green will be looking to break their losing streak under the captainship of Babar Azam, whereas, the men in blue will march on the field to maintain the years-old legacy.
The PCB named a 12-man squad set to be induced in the team’s World Cup opener. Have a look:
Squad: Babar Azam (C), Asif Ali, Fakhar Zaman, Haider Ali, Mohammad Hafeez, Mohammad Rizwan (WK), Imad Wasim, Shadab Khan, Shoaib Malik, Haris Rauf, Shaheen Shah Afridi, Hasan Ali
