Pakistan wins the toss and decided to field first
The Indian Premiere was played at the same venue recently and experts predict a slow and turning pitch with a low score. But things can change pretty quickly in Cricket. The average first innings score at the IPL was 156 in Dubai.
Despite the IPL final being won by the team batting first (Chennai), a chasing team won 9 of the 13 games in IPL 2021.
Hotstar will stream the match live in India with TV coverage on Star Sports with English and Hindi commentary. PTV Sports will telecast in Pakistan.
Ind vs Pak match highlights
India Probable: Rohit Sharma, KL Rahul, Virat Kohli, Suryakumar Yadav, Rishabh Pant, Hardik Pandya, Ravindra Jadeja, Rahul Chahar, Shardul Thakur, Mohammed Shami, and Jasprit Bumrah.

Pakistan announced its 12-man squad well in advance. Sarfaraz Ahmed, Mohammad Wasim, and Mohammad Nawaz are not playing this game.
Pakistan Probable: Babar Azam, Mohammed Rizwan, Shoaib Malik, Aasif Ali, Imad Wasim, Shadab Khan, Hasan Ali, Fakhar Zaman, Mohammad Hafeez, Haris Rauf, and Shaheen Afridi.
In another match of the World Cup T20, Bangladesh scored 87/2 in 11.4 overs. Sri Lanka won the toss and opt to bowl in Sharjah.
India certainly has an edge as history says Pakistan is yet to win a match against India in the World Cup.
