Babar Azam | Pakistan
We are going to bowl first. We’ll look to take early wickets and put pressure. Dew is also a factor. We have had good practice sessions and am confident about our preparations. Pakistan’s bowlers are known to trouble other teams but I am confident about our batting too. Haider Ali is left out.
Virat Kohli | India
We are pretty happy with setting the target. We would have bowled first too, but the toss is not in your control. We are pretty balanced with our squad and you need to be prepared for it. We need to stay as professional as possible.
We need to stay focussed on the processes. Everyone watches it closely all over the world. We can use that as a motivation, but we need to ensure we don’t get too emotional and need to just stay professional.
The pitch looks very different. Evenly rolled and there is no grass at all which was the case during the IPL, and I’m sure that was done to hold it together well for the World Cup.
We expect the pitch to stay good all through and set a good total. The four not playing are: Rahul Chahar, Ishan Kishan, Ashwin, and Thakur.

T20 WC 2021 India vs Pakistan Highlights
KL Rahul and Rohit Sharma get into the crease to lead India while Pakistan’s Shaheen Afridi opens the bowling attack. Pakistan takes revenge seriously as they kick start the innings with Rohit Sharma’s early dismissal for duck out.
In his very next over Shaheen dismissed KL Rahul and loads pressure over the Indian batting unit. While Virat Kohli and Suryakumar Yadav tries to make a steady partnership Hasan Ali smoothly dismissed Suryakumar Yadav for 11 runs and adds the pressure over the Indian batting unit.
Rishabh Pant and Virat Kohli make a decent partnership but fail to withstand Pakistan’s bowling attack. Shadab Khan dismissed Pant while India scored 84 runs. India then struggles to make a massive move and fails to be impressive in their first match.
India windup their innings after scoring 151 runs for 7 wickets at the end of the 20 overs.
Mohammad Rizwan and Babar Azam open the batting attack while Bhuvneshwar Kumar opens the bowling attack. The Pakistan duo makes a steady inning where Indian bowlers struggle to pick their first wicket.
Pakistan makes their first winning of the ICC T20 World Cup 2021 smoothly by beating India by 10 wickets and rewrites the history of India – Pakistan cricket rivalry in World Cup tournaments.

Player of the Match
Shaheen Afridi | Pakistan
It is the good wishes of my parents and all Pakistanis. Very happy with my performance. The plan was to bring the ball back in. I was just trying to swing it and I was just looking to give the team a breakthrough.
That was what I practiced in the nets as well yesterday. Batting against the new ball was tough. The credit goes to Babar and Rizwan for the way they played. All teams are good in the tournament and we will look to carry this momentum through and go to the finals.
