ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2021 – India vs Pakistan – 16th Match – Match Prediction

Arch-rivals India, Pakistan will face off in a high-octane match in Dubai.

The ICC World T20 World Cup’s headline match between India and Pakistan is still one day away, and speculation is rife. The buzz surrounding the match is far higher than it has been for the remainder of the tournament.

The match between these two sides is already a rare commodity these days, with only ICC events bringing them together. The last time these two sides played was in the 2019 World Cup fifty-over competition, with India coming out on top.

Even though India has performed far better than their opponents in recent head-to-head matchups, history is mostly irrelevant when these two teams take the field. Aside from that, given how closely their group is packed, this match is extremely important in terms of table dynamics. The match between India and Pakistan will take place on October 24, 2021, at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium in Dubai.

India vs Pakistan Team Previews

India (Match Odds – 1.45)

Virat Kohli’s last tournament as captain of India in T20Is is reason enough for him to be as focused as he has ever been. Apart from motivation, India has a number of advantages heading into the tournament’s main event. However, the main event could be a whole different type of assignment, and the pressure will be enormous because the stakes are so high.

In terms of confidence, one aspect that will work in India’s advantage is the fact that Pakistan has never beaten India in a World Cup game, regardless of format. Another evident advantage for India going into the match is that they are already accustomed with the circumstances, thanks to the number of matches they have all played as part of the Indian Premier League 2021.

In addition, India’s performances in their two warm-up matches have given them reason to be optimistic. The middle-form order’s has been questioned for some time, and the manner Suryakumar Yadav and Rishabh Pant batted in the warm-ups adds to India’s batsmanship.

Overall, India has a strong case on paper, and their familiarity with the circumstances is likely to be their largest advantage. That helped them a lot in the two warm-ups, and we expect it to help them a lot in the coming matches as well. If India performs to their full potential, they should be able to maintain their outstanding record against Pakistan.

India T20 Squad

Ravichandran Ashwin, Jasprit Bumrah, Rahul Chahar, Varun Chakravarthy, Ravindra Jadeja, Ishan Kishan (wk), Virat Kohli (c); Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Hardik Pandya, Rishabh Pant (wk), KL Rahul, Mohammed Shami, Rohit Sharma, Shardul Thakur, Suryakumar Yadav

Predicted XI: Virat Kohli (c), Rohit Sharma, Rishabh Pant, Ishan Kishan (wk), Suryakumar Yadav, Hardik Pandya; Ravindra Jadeja, Shardul Thakur, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Mohammad Shami, Jasprit Bumrah

Pakistan (Match Odds – 2.75)

Team Pakistan is coming into 2017 World Cup on the back of a strong T20I record since their last World Cup campaign, and they’ll be looking to replicate that in the World T20. Pakistan has always been an unpredictably volatile team, and this year is no exception.

Pakistan’s board has a new chairman, and eleven of the previously scheduled T20I matches have been cancelled before of the World Cup. Despite all of the commotion, Pakistan performed admirably in the warm-ups. They easily overcame the West Indies and kept South Africa on the edge for the whole of the second warm-up.

Pakistan has performed admirably thus far, but their task against India will not be simple. They’ve assembled a competent squad with a solid mix of youth and experience; and they’re more than capable of defeating any team on their day, especially in this format. Even for high-flying India, defeating them in this forthcoming match will be a monumental effort if they are able to play to their full ability.
