India take on Pakistan in a match that will be watched by more than a billion people worldwide with both teams boasting a perfect record of two wins from two matches.


Oh, yes. Regularly one of the most watched sporting events of the year is back and the fixture is set-up perfectly, with both teams entering the match unbeaten and with everything to play for in the competition.

Indian superstar Shubman Gill is a doubt for the fixture as he continues to recover from illness, but both teams otherwise go into the match with a full bill of health.

Pakistan completed a record World Cup run chase of 344 against Sri Lanka in their previous fixture, whilst India captain Rohit Sharma mauled an Afghanistan attack to chase down 282 without breaking a sweat.

Pakistan have won just two of the previous ten ODIs between these sides and suffered the most dramatic of defeats against India during the T20 World Cup last year, thanks to a Virat Kohli masterclass. There will be no bigger stage in world cricket in which they can reverse their recent fortunes than on Saturday.

India v Pakistan key player to watch

Shaheen Shah Afridi (Pakistan)

India’s two victories this World Cup have both come in chases, with Virat Kohli and KL Rahul the stars of their win over Australia, before Rohit Sharma took centre stage against Afghanistan.

India’s batting line-up is offensively strong, and will need Pakistan’s best bowler to be on top form to combat it. In front of a packed Narendra Modi Stadium, there will be few sporting spectacles greater than seeing Shaheen in full flow on Saturday.
