The T20 World Cup is already generating many speculations in fans, making the event reach its crescendo in no time. On top of that, when we hear about the India vs. Pakistan match, it increases the hype. India and Pakistan are two countries whose rivalry is well known in different parts of the world. So, seeing these two nations fighting against each other again in the Dubai International Cricket Stadium on 24th October will indeed be exciting.
India Vs. Pakistan-The Match Preview
If we judge the previous competitions between India and Pakistan, we have seen India displaying impeccable strength in the T20 games. Not only against Pakistan, but against many other nations, India has shown superior performance.
That is why, they won the title once in 2007 and became the first runner-up against Sri Lanka in 2014. But, compared to that, Pakistan has always remained an underdog to India. Apart from being the 1st runner-up in 2007, they have not come much closer to winning again.

Since India defeated Pakistan in most of the previous T20 matches, cricket fans are also making the exact prediction this time.

So, the team who will choose to bat first will likely have an advantage.

- Rohit Sharma.
- KL Rahul.
- Suryakumar Yadav.

Key Players To Look Forward To
Virat Kohli: He has been the captain of the Indian cricket team for 4 years now, and he is the only batsman in the world with a 50+ average run rate in all formats of Cricket. In the T20 world cup, he has a strike rate of 139.04, so it will be exciting to see him on the field on Sunday.
Rohit Sharma: With 5 IPL titles as a captain and 6 IPL titles as a player, Rohit Sharma is a gem of the Indian team. His strike rate in T20 matches has been 138.96 so far. So, hopefully, he will be proven a destructive weapon against Pakistan.
Ravindra Jadeja: If we think of someone in the Indian team who can turn the wheel of the match in any direction, Jadeja’s name comes to mind. In the IPL 2021, he maintained excellent consistency in every game with a strike rate of 152.51. He is also an essential fielder of India who can be beneficial in games of such short overs.
Hasan Ali: This medium-fast bowler of Pakistan brings a lot of variations in his bowling technique, which can confuse the opponent. He is also an all-rounder in all three formats of Cricket, which makes him a true gem of the men-in-green squad.
Babar Azam: Another destructive weapon in Pakistan’s squad is Babar Azam. This player was the 2nd fastest athlete to score 2000 ODI runs. He was also the quickest player to score 1000 T20 runs, so fans will be excited to see what he brings on the field against India.
Fakhar Zaman: He is currently the star batsman of Pakistan. With a 32.00 batting average record in test matches and 47.45 in ODI matches, he will be a genuine surprise in the game against India.
We think it will be quite a good fight between India and Pakistan on Sunday, and the match will be worth watching. Although fans are mainly siding in favor of India, nothing can be said for certain for now. So, let’s hope the best team wins.
