Players to watch-out for

Babar Azam and Fakhar Zaman will be the key for Pakistan but Babar needs to step up the scoring rate from ball one. India should come prepare for Mohammad Amir and Shaheen as both have taken wickets in against India before, if they does the same against India as well, thing would become difficult for India then.

From the Indian side, top run getters in ICC T20 World Cup Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli remain the biggest threat. So keeping his stellar record in mind, Pakistan must dismiss him early to have an edge in the game. Kohli on the other hand has a history of smashing Pakistan. He has 2 world cup centuries against Pakistan, so he has that psychological advantage over Pakistan.

Pakistan also need to look out for Kuldeep Yadav. The wrist spinner has been phenomenal against Pakistan but the main threat will be Jasprit Bumrah as he has the variety that Pakistani batters do not have much chance to bat against in the nets to prepare.
