The weather will be mostly cloudy with spotty showers. The percentage of expected rain is around 45% at the start of play at 10:30 a.m, while it will be around 34% to 55% during the day.

India and Pakistan have clashed a total of 131 times in ODIs, out of which India have won 54, while Pakistan have won 73. The last time the two teams met was in the 2018 Asia Cup when India beat Pakistan in both the encounters.

In the last eight matches between the two teams, India have beaten the Men in Green six times. Interestingly, the teams played each other at the same venue at the 1999 ICC World Cup as well, where India won by 47 runs.

In the six matches that the two teams have played in the World Cup, Pakistan have never been able to win and that will play on the minds of both teams. In the last five matches played by the two teams, India have won two and lost three, while Pakistan have won one and lost three.


The Men in Green got some confidence after their win over England, but again lost their next match against Australia. It would be essential for the team to win this match in order to keep striving for a place in the semifinal.

This is the match number 22 of the 2019 ICC Cricket World Cup and will be played at Old Trafford in Manchester.

Let's have a look at the probable playing XI of both teams:

India- Lokesh Rahul, Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli (c), Vijay Shankar, MS Dhoni (wk), Hardik Pandya, Kedar Jadhav, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Mohammed Shami/Kuldeep Yadav, Yuzvendra Chahal, Jasprit Bumrah

Pakistan- Imam-ul-Haq, Fakhar Zaman, Babar Azam, Mohammad Hafeez, Sarfaraz Ahmed (c,wk), Haris Sohail, Asif Ali, Wahab Riaz, Hasan Ali, Shadab Khan, Mohammad Amir
