IND vs PAK Dream11 Prediction: Match Number 4 of the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup is upon us, and it’s a big one. Team India will be up against Pakistan at the Dubai International Stadium. Although some might say that India has a much balance squad in their hands, a high-voltage game in the World Cup can lead to a few surprise results. Nevertheless, the Men in Blue will be walking in with confidence after dispatching England and Australia with utmost ease in the warm-up fixtures. As for Pakistan, they comprehensively beat the West Indies and lost to South Africa on the last ball in their games. There were quite a few positives from Pakistan’s end as well. The two sides India and Pakistan have confronted one another on five separate occasions in the T20 World Cup, as it’s been India that has ensured their dominance with five straight wins.

Fixture Name: ICC T20 World Cup Match 4, India vs Pakistan
Competition: ICC T20 World Cup
Time: 7:30 PM IST
Team Form Guide:
Ground Details: Dubai International Stadium
Pitch Report: The wicket at Dubai was a tricky one for the batters in the previous game. The West Indies were bundled out for a meager 55, whereas, England too ended up losing four wickets in their run chase. That being said, we can expect the spinners to have say later tonight, and a 1st innings score of anything close to 150 might be considered ideal.
Toss Update: Pakistan have won the toss and will bowl first
WK: M Rizwan
BAT: R Sharma, S Yadav, L Rahul, B Azam
AR: R Jadeja, M Hafeez
BOW: J Bumrahj, M Shami, H Ali.
Both sides have exciting prospects as well as some veterans of the game. However, if we talk about the depth in quality that India have, they should be causing Pakistan more than a few problems with both bat and ball. As a result of that, it’s India that will be heading in as the favorites to get the win here.
KL Rahul is in the form of his life with the bat, whereas, Rohit Sharma has scored back-to-back hundreds against Pakistan in his last two knocks against them. Virat Kohli is expected to be back to his best, while, Suryakumar Yadav, Rishabh Pant and Ravindra Jadeja can also contribute with quick runs. Jasprit Bumrah and Mohammad Shami in tandem can prove to be lethal with the ball.
KL Rahul is one of the most in-form cricketers in all parts of the game at this moment of time. After piling on serious runs in the IPL, Rahul carried on his good touch in the warm-up games to score a half-century, as well as a quick-fire 38 against England and Australia respectively. He has 12 fifties, two centuries, and an average of 39.9 in T20Is for India.
Rohit Sharma relishes playing against Pakistan, and his recent record does suggest that. The specialist opener might have not had the best of time with the bat in the IPL, but did manage to score a valuable 60 odd runs versus the Aussies which should add some confidence in him. The Indian vice-captain is one of the all-time best T20I players, as he scored 22 fifties and four tons from 111 appearances for India.

Babar Azam will the key factor from Pakistan’s end. The 27-year-old has been one of the players to watch out for in recent times and rightfully so. Talking about T20I cricket in general, the Pakistan captain has scored 2204 runs, at an average of 46.9, which includes 20 fifties and a hundred as well.
Barring Babar Azam, it’s Mohammad Rizwan who has been one of the most reliable batters for Pakistan. The wicket-keeper batsman has scored 1065 runs from 43 T20Is, at a staggering average of 48.4. Rizwan also has eight fifties and a hundred under his belt.
