INDIA VS PAKISTAN 2019 WORLD CUP MATCH NO. 22 : PLAYING XI, PITCH REPORT & PLAYERS UPDATE

Image result for india vs pakistan world cup 2019

Bitter foes India and Pakistan lock horns in the tournament’s one of the most anticipated matches at the Old Trafford on Sunday. When Pakistan play India it’s always a huge game, but their meeting on Sunday is shaping up to be more crucial than ever. Pakistan must go back to their Champions Trophy triumph for inspiration and then look for early wickets in their World Cup encounter against arch-rivals India.

India had easily beaten Pakistan in their 2018 Asia Cup match. But, the 2017 tournament was certainly bigger, and a defeat in that hurt India more than the Asia Cup victory could make up for. Now, in ICC Cricket World Cup 2019, India are eying a revenge on their arch-rivals for their 180-run Champions Trophy defeat.

As India lock horns with Pakistan on Sunday (June 16), one factor clearly in their favour would be the past record: They have beaten Pakistan on each of the six occasions when the two sides have played against each other in World Cups.

On the negative side, however, prolific opener Shikhar Dhawan is going to be missing in action due to a thumb injury he sustained in India’s match against Australia on June 9. All eyes will now be on Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli, both in a fine form to take on the likes of Pakistan’s Mohammad Amir and Wahab Riaz.

Going from a defeat to playing the old rivalry against India isn’t going to be easy. India probably watched the Australia game very closely and know what needs to be done. Pakistan need to lift themselves up and I hope they bring their best on Sunday
