India

The team captained by Rohit Sharma got off to a good start in the T20 World Cup, defeating Ireland in New York with little effort The fast bowlers had something to gain from this surface, as Bumrah, Siraj, Arshdeep, and Hardik took full advantage of the available circumstances. Hardik Pandya’s bowling was one of the Men in Blue’s many strong points. With the ball, the fast-bowling all-rounder proved invaluable, and his middle-order wicket-taking contributed significantly to India’s victory.

The form of left-hander Rishabh Pant, who has been assigned to bat at number three with Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma opening the innings, is another aspect about which the captain and team management would be pleased. Pant has become one of the top order’s most effective left-handed offensive options it allows India to bat with more flexibility.

Pakistan

The Babar Azam-led side has had a difficult time, beginning with a series loss to England before the T20 World Cup, followed by an embarrassing loss to the United States in the tournament’s first match. The Man in Green has a lot to think about before the match against India. It is a do-or-die encounter for Pakistan because a loss to India would make things difficult for them moving forward in the tournament.

One of Pakistan’s main concerns is that their batsmen have not performed as expected, which is one of the reasons the squad struggled against the American bowlers. Aside from a sorry Batting Show Pakistan’s bowling was also subpar, with Shaheen Afridi failing to swing the ball and leg spinner Shadab Khan struggling to bowl at acceptable distances.
