Covers coming off

It looks like the IND vs PAK match will be an on-and-off one. The covers are off for the second time, but the start time is yet to come.

Rain back again

Doesn’t look like the match will start on time (8:30 PM IST).

Playing XIs

India: Rohit Sharma (c), Virat Kohli, Rishabh Pant (wk), Suryakumar Yadav, Shivam Dube, Hardik Pandya (vc), Ravindra Jadeja, Axar Patel, Jasprit Bumrah, Mohammed Siraj, Arshdeep Singh.

Pakistan: Mohammad Rizwan (wk), Babar Azam (c), Usman Khan, Fakhar Zaman, Shadab Khan, Iftikhar Ahmed, Imad Wasim, Shaheen Afridi, Haris Rauf, Naseem Shah, Mohammad Amir.

Pakistan to bowl first

Imad Wasim comes in, Azam Khan goes out says Babar Azam after winning toss. “We will bowl first because of the weather and moisture in the pitch. The conditions suit us, we have four fast bowlers. We will try to use it to our best. Past is past, we are looking forward to today’s match, we are ready and will give our 100%. Always a big game, our confidence is always high for India vs Pak. Azam Khan is resting.

Same team for India. “Would’ve bowled first too. We need to assess how conditions play and come up with an idea of what a good score is. Those games have helped us assess conditions here. We’ve spoken about what we need to do as a batting unit to get a good score and then we’ve got the bowling unit to defend. Every game is important in a World Cup, you can’t just show up. Anything can happen. We’re sticking to the same XI,” said Rohit.

Old pitch being used for IND vs PAK

The India vs Pakistan match will be played on the same pitch that was used for the South Africa vs Netherlands match yesterday (June 8). This means that the pitch will be slightly slow and can help spinners a little bit more.

Rain drama!

Light showers are expected around 6:30 PM at the Nassau Cricket Stadium, just one hour before the toss.
