India vs Pakistan Predictions

The biggest match of the 2022 ICC T20 World Cup, one of the world’s top cricket tournaments, is finally taking place on Sunday. Stakes are high as arch-rivals India and Pakistan take on each other in the Group 2 match of the Super 12 stage. While India would be looking to settle scores since their defeat last year, Pakistan would want to continue the winning momentum.

  • Though India has the overall head-to-head advantage over Pakistan (8-3), their performance against their neighbours in recent times has not been great.
  • The MCG pitch is regarded as one of the world's most competitive surfaces, with something for both batsmen and bowlers.
  • The fast bowlers will get some seam and bounce movement early on. As the ball gets old, the batters can play their shots freely. However, there is not much assistance for the spinners.
  • The toss will be crucial. The chasing team has won in the last five (completed) T20s at the MCG. Even in the previous five encounters between India and Pakistan, the chasing team won every occasion. Hence, expect the toss-winning captain to bowl first.
  • Though the weather Gods might not be as generous on match day, the game will still go on even if rain plays spoilsport.
  • Key players for India would be Mohammad Shami and Hardik Pandya. The MCG track will be conducive to pace bowling, which will afford Shami the edge. Pandya has been the key architect in India's recent victories against their arch-rivals.
  • Key players for Pakistan would be Mohammad Rizwan and Shaheen Afridi. While Rizwan has been the backbone of their batting line-up, Shaheen's left-arm pace will be vital as it can expose the weaknesses of the Indian batters.

Yes, it’s going to be a very close match, but we are backing India to win this encounter. We believe India is the better-placed team at this point in time, albeit by a very small margin. And that’s what tips the scales in the Men in Blue’s favour for us.

India vs Pakistan: Team news

Team News


• The top-ranked T20I side is going into this tournament on the back of two consecutive T20I series wins against Australia and South Africa.
• However, there are definite concerns in the Indian camp, especially with their bowlers being belted for runs at the death.
• The absence of Jasprit Bumrah and Ravindra Jadeja will be heavily felt as they have been match winners on several occasions.
• India of late has been making rough weather of defending even formidable totals, thanks to their lacklustre bowling.
• That said, they will find solace in ace batsman Virat Kohli getting back in form. Also, the return of Mohammad Shami would instil confidence in the bowling lineup.
