It's one of the most exciting games that has ever been played in cricket, and it will be played between two of the best teams in the history of T20 cricket. India and Pakistan have been involved in many thrilling encounters, but never in an international T20 game yet. It will be an amazing experience to see these two titans going head-to-head in what will be the final match of the World Cup, with both teams having everything to lose and everything to gain from this encounter. The rivalry between India and Pakistan in cricket has been going on for several years now, and it has taken place in several formats of the game such as Tests, ODIs, and T20s. India usually dominates Pakistan in any match between the two countries, especially in the Test matches, where Pakistan has never won against India in the last few years. 1) Rohit Sharma’s recent form Rohit Sharma’s form in ODI cricket has tapered off, but he’s been one of India’s most consistent performers in Twenty20. He’s the second-highest run-getter for India in Twenty20 International cricket (behind Virat Kohli) with an average of 31.77 and a strike rate of 139.39 from 82 innings. He also hit two centuries and a 93* in these innings. In fact, his unbeaten knock against England in Mumbai was his 11th consecutive half-century in T20Is – that is a record for any batsman playing international cricket. That said, Rohit hasn’t played much limited-overs cricket since September 2017 owing to injuries; he last played an ODI against Australia at home on 29 September 2017 before picking up a hamstring injury which ruled him out of action till January 2018. 2) Failure in batting conditions Before India can beat Pakistan in a T20 match, it must overcome its historic failures in batting conditions like those experienced during last year’s Asia Cup. Though Indian batsmen often struggle against low and slow bowling, they are among cricket’s best when it comes to playing in high-scoring matches. But that hasn’t been enough for them to win any of their four T20 games against Pakistan. In fact, since 2013—when these two teams first met in an ICC event—India has lost every single game between them that lasted more than 15 overs. This includes both games at last year’s Asia Cup, as well as both games at 2015’s World Cup. It also includes all three games played between them in 2016: one ODI and two T20Is. Despite having a home advantage, India is still 0-7 against Pakistan in T20Is since 2012. 3) Inexperience against spin bowling The lack of domestic matches against top-class spin bowling could be a significant stumbling block for Indian batsmen, who have recently struggled to contend with it. Virat Kohli’s men will probably have to do without Yuvraj Singh and Harbhajan Singh as well since they are playing in county cricket at that time. A word from Rahul Dravid here may not go amiss. Lack of fast bowlers: This is another area where India looks short on options. Apart from Jasprit Bumrah, there isn’t much to write home about when it comes to pacers in limited-overs cricket. Mohammad Shami has been injury prone while Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Umesh Yadav have been inconsistent throughout their careers. It would be interesting to see how captain Kohli deals with these issues ahead of such an important tournament. How effective can wrist spinners like Kuldeep Yadav and Yuzvendra Chahal prove to be? What impact can wrist-spinners like Kuldeep Yadav and Yuzvendra Chahal have on Pakistani batsmen? How long can Kedar Jadhav remain fit? Will he get enough games in order to perform his role effectively during crucial stages of matches?
