Welcome to the preview of India vs Pakistan match or I would say the most awaited match of this year in Cricket Sport.
We all remember Champions trophy final in 2017 When Pakistan beated India badly in all the areas.
Pakistan is always a team of uncertainty and the way this world cup is going for them is very much similar to 1992 World Cup when they become World Champion for first time under the captaincy of Imran Khan.
India has taken revenge of that defeat against Pakistan in Asia Cup but still got a chance to beat Pakistan in England where they are the most strong team due to bowler-friendly conditions.
This is the first match in Manchester for WC 2019 so pitch is unknown to everyone. Mohammed Amir has taken the most wicket in this World Cup so far. India opening batting order looks vulnerable as KL Rahul has never opened for India in ODI’s.
The way lower order of Pakistan batted against Aussies was a good sign to Pakistan fans that team is giving their best to win matches.
We all hope we see a full thrilling match between these two clans at Old Trafford.
