IND vs PAK Dream11 Match Prediction | Who Will Win Today match
Dubai, September 23 at 05:00 PM IST
India completely outclassed arch-rivals Pakistan in all departments in the group meeting, but the result was inconsequential. However, this time the stakes are high for the two Asian giants.
India registered one of the easiest victories over Pakistan in years, making a strong statement after a mediocre show against Hong Kong in their tournament opener. They would want to replicate the performance here.
Pakistan would want to forget the drubbing and come out positive in the all-important fixture. For them to challenge India, their top-order must fire.
Pitch and weather conditions: Sheikh Zayed Stadium in Dubai is a free-run flowing surface. There would be little purchase for the fast bowlers unless they keep it straight. On the other hand, the slow bowlers may come into play.
Last ODI result at the venue: Pakistan 162/10 lost to India 164/2 – 19 September 2018, Asia Cup 2018
India is likely to come out unchanged.
Shadab Khan is fit to play, but there is an uncertainty over who will he replace.
Here’s how the two sides may lineup for India vs Pakistan clash.
