India have fought back after the initial burst from the Pakistan pacers which saw Shaheen Afridi send back openers Rohit Sharma and KL Rahul and then Hasan Ali removed Suryakumar Yadav. Rishabh Pant hit a 30-ball 39, which included two fours and two sixes, before getting dismissed by Shadab Khan. Virat Kohli is holding fort for his team currently and will look to give India a final flourish in the company of Ravindra Jadeja. Kohli left out Ravichandran Ashwin, Rahul Chahar, Shardul Thakur and Ishan Kishan from the playing XI, with Varun Chakaravarthy making the line-up. Team India will hope to seal a win and get their campaign off to a good start against a top-notch Pakistan team, which has a number of match-winners in its line-up. For India, Rishabh Pant and the skipper himself will hold key, while Pakistan will be expecting a lot from their bowling attack which includes the likes of Shaheen Afridi and Shadab Khan. Mohammad Rizwan has been in stellar form with the bat for Pakistan along with captain Babar. The experienced duo of Shoaib Malik and Mohammad Hafeez are expected to start the match too. For India, Jasprit Bumrah will hold the key in the bowling department while Kohli  will have to decide how many spinners he will play against a sub-continental opponent. India included MS Dhoni in their support staff as a mentor for this tournament and Kohli will look to extract most from the former Indian captain.

India went in with the following playing XI: KL Rahul, Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli, Suryakumar Yadav, Rishabh Pant, Hardik Pandya, Ravindra Jadeja, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Varun Chakaravarthy, Mohammed Shami, Jasprit Bumrah

Pakistan chose the following players in their final XI: Babar Azam, Shadab Khan, Fakhar Zaman, Mohammad Hafeez, Shoaib Malik, Mohammad Rizwan, Imad Wasim, Asif Ali, Haris Rauf, Hasan Ali, Shaheen Afridi  (LIVE SCORECARD)
