India VS Pakistan Match Information

 India lost their first-ever World Cup encounter versus arch-rivals Pakistan during the last edition of the T20 WC, in the UAE, and will be desperate to settle scores this time around. Pakistan, on the other hand, will be confident in facing India at the ICC event after their ten-wicket win in the 2021 edition. 

Both sides met twice in the Asia Cup 2022 edition and won and lost a game each. Hence, a blockbuster game is on the cards this time around.

India will tussle against eternal rivals Pakistan in their first Super 12 game in front of a sold-out Melbourne Cricket Ground on Sunday, 23rd of October. Although rain is expected to play spoilsports on the day, the fans are eagerly waiting for the revival of one of the most intense rivalries in all of sports.

The Men in Blue, led by Rohit Sharma, were handed a chastening defeat by their nemesis in last year's T20 World Cup encounter in Dubai and will enter the iconic venue with revenge on their agenda. Meanwhile, Pakistan, for the first time in a while, won't head into to clash as underdogs after their recent showing against the neighbors in the Asia Cup earlier this year.
