  • India, winners of the inaugural T20 World Cup back in 2007, come into the 2022 edition of the tournament having won eight of their last 11 completed white ball fixtures, most recently beating Australia by 6 runs in a warm-up match, an impressive result which could be seen as laying down a marker.
  • Rohit Sharma’s side will have to find a way to win without Jasprit Bumrah, their star fast bowler having been ruled out of the competition through injury, but on the batting front they can feel very confident about themselves what with the return to form of Virat Kohli during the Asia Cup following a long lean spell.


  • Pakistan bounced back brilliantly from being edged out in a nail-biting seven-match series vs England, by winning a tri-series against New Zealand and Bangladesh in Christchurch earlier this month and are now aiming to banish the demons of last year’s T20 World Cup which saw them fall at the semi-final after having dominated throughout the ‘Super 12’s’.
  • The return of left-arm pacer Shaheen Shah Afridi is most welcome from their perspective, but question marks will undoubtably remain regarding his fitness, whilst the 2021 T20 World Cup’s highest run-scorer Babar Azam will be hoping for another profitable tournament opening the batting with wicket-keeper Mohammad Rizwan.


These two fierce rivals have already faced off in T20i cricket, this year, clashing twice across August and September’s Asia Cup which saw both sides each pick up one victory over the other. India are looking for revenge though, after losing at this stage of the T20 World Cup to Pakistan last year. The bowling attack of Pakistan will be hugely boosted by the presence of Shaheen, but worries remain over the depth of their batting, which could prove costly on a ground such as the MCG. For India however, they don’t have the same concerns. The strength-in-depth they possess down the order is arguably their biggest strength and when you combine that with the return to form of Kohli, it doesn’t bode well for Pakistan. Expect another closely fought contest between these two Asian cricketing titans, but back India to edge out Pakistan this time round.
