India and Pakistan matches are full of high pressure, and whoever manages to handle the pressure well will dominate the game. Both the teams have prolific players who can turn the game upside down single-handedly. While Indian players had enough practice in the UAE leg of IPL 2021, they’ll enter the tournament with confidence and in-form. Indian openers KL Rahul is one of the top scorers of IPL 2021, and Rohit Sharma would love to go all the way against Pakistan. Virat, Pant, Surya Kumar Yadav, Ishan Kishan had a brilliant IPL and contributed to their franchises. Bumrah, Bhuvaneshwar, Shami adjusted to the conditions there. Deepak Chahar, Shardul, Ravindra Jadeja played a crucial role in taking CSK to the finals. 

The Pakistan team is familiar with the conditions of the UAE as they played enough cricket there. While Babar Azam ranks number one in T20, his partner Mohammed Rizwan is the leading scorer in 2021, with 754 runs in 14 innings. Rizwan has the second-best average next to Virat. With Fakhar Zaman, Hafeez, Shoaib Malik, Sarfaraz, Hasan Ali, the Pakistan team looks solid. Cricket fans are curious to see the contest between Shaheen Afridi and the Indian top order. 

India and Pakistan are in the Group 2 of Super 8 alongside New Zealand and Afghanistan. Qualifiers will decide the other two teams joining the group. India enjoys a 5-0 domination over the neighbours in all editions of the world cup. Virat Kohli-led Men in Blue would like to continue the winning streak and make it to 6-0. Virat certainly doesn’t want to be the first team to lose against Pakistan in the T20 World cup. Babar Azam, the No.1 ranked batsman in the world and Pakistan skipper, want to take one match at a time.
