  • India will hope to justify their favouritism as they get their T20 World Cup campaign underway with this clash against fierce rivals Pakistan and with a star-studded squad at their disposal, it would not be a surprise to see them claim the title.
  • Captain Virat Kohli will play a big role for his side and he will be looking to put recent criticism regarding his performances in Test match cricket behind him as he focuses on leading his side to glory.


  • Pakistan have not played too much T20 cricket of late and they will be hoping they do not get caught cold as they face arguably the toughest task of any team in their opening clash as they take on India.
  • The Pakistanis boast some genuine quality in their squad but it is with the bat where they look strongest with opening duo Babar Azam and Mohammad Rizwan set to be pivotal to their chances of success.


India have dominated in T20 cricket over the last year or so having won seven of their last eight series. Their only loss during that time came against Sri Lanka in their latest series when they named an extremely weakened squad in order to give some fringe players an opportunity to force their way into the squad. Pakistan on the other hand might be caught out by a lack of match practice in this format, although they have two of the top seven batsmen in T20 cricket in their ranks who are capable of causing plenty of damage. However, India’s bowling unit will believe that they can limit the opening pair of Babar Azam and Mohammad and with plenty of class of their own with the bat, it is the Indians that can get their campaign off to a winning start.
