India :

India have been dealt with an injury blow ahead of this game with Shikhar Dhawan and last match was canceled due to rain. But they had a good start in this world cup by wining 2 back to back games.They won the first game with by 6 wickets against south Africa and won by 36 runs against Australia.

India needs to be very careful, don’t go into this game thinking they are the favourites. I think they did that the last time in 2017 in the ICC Champions Trophy finals, and Pakistan beat them hands down. It’s going to be a great game of cricket,” commented Ganguly as an expert for Star Sports ahead of the game.Tendulkar also said that India cannot afford to take the traditional rivals lightly.

The Men in Blue have an unbeaten record against their opponent, having won all their six encounters. Virat Kohli & Co. are also unbeaten in the mega event after defeating South Africa and Australia.India is likely to rope in either of Dinesh Karthik or Vijay Shankar in place of the injured Shikhar Dhawan. Both Karthik and Shankar didn’t have the best of times in the warm-up matches and they’ll be looking to make amends. In Dhawan’s absence, KL Rahul should open the batting with Rohit Sharma. Rahul must be high on confidence after his ton against Bangladesh in the second warm-up in Cardiff.

India has so far played Jasprit Bumrah, Bhuvaneshwar Kumar, Yuzvendra Chahal, and Kuldeep Yadav backed up by Hardik Pandya and Kedar Jadhav. We think they might consider playing Mohammad Shami or Ravindra Jadeja in place of Kuldeep Yadav if the conditions remain overcast.

Pakistan :

Pakistan has played 4 games and tasted both a win and 2 defeat while their third match against Sri Lanka got washed out and the teams shared one point each. They lost first match by 7 wickets against west Indies , had a great come back win against England by 14 runs and lost 4 match against Australia by 41 runs.

Pakistan has always been unpredictable, and they are a dangerous side – so there is no way the Indian team is going to take them lightly. Every step that the Indian team takes forward, we would want to be 100% sure of what we are doing, and it is well thought and well planned.

Fakhar Zaman, Imam ul Haq, and Babar Azam are a dangerous top-3. Fakhar Zaman may not be very consistent but he will have good memories of taking apart India’s attack in the Champions Trophy final. Imam and Babar are much more consistent and must score runs if Pakistan has to have a chance.Babar Azam is rated as one of the best ODI players in the world and this is the time to prove it.Mohammad Hafeez is in excellent rhythm and is playing his best cricket at number 4. He has the power game to be able to accelerate when needed and is also very good against the spinners.

Shoaib Malik and Asif Ali’s form is also a matter of concern. In the bowling department, Hasan Ali has blown hot and cold, having picked up only one wicket in three games. Mohammad Amir, the leading wicket-taker of the World Cup, is expected to enact a very important role for Sarfaraz and team.
