The live cricket streaming international cricket is India v Pakistan, 2019 ICC Cricket World Cup.
June 16, India v Pakistan, 22nd match, 2019 ICC Cricket World Cup, Old Trafford, Manchester
First things first, the weather in Manchester is not as bleak as it has been over the past one week in the UK and we are expecting to have play. There is a chance of up to 55% rain at various points during the day, but they are generally passing showers and if the groundsman succeed in keeping the outfield reasonably dry, there is every reason for play to happen.
The temperature will be an average of 12 degrees at Old Trafford. The overhead conditions are expected to be cloudy.
India will go into this game without gun opener Shikhar Dhawan, who is currently not available for selection due to a fracture in his thumb. KL Rahul will take his place at the top of the order. Either of Vijay Shankar or Dinesh Karthik are expected to bat at number four. As things stand, Shankar is edging this race.
Given the conditions, there is every chance that the team includes Mohammed Shami in the final XI, as he is more than capable of nipping the ball around at decent pace.
Likewise, Pakistan might look to replace Shoaib Malik with Haris Sohail. Their not playing Shadab Khan in the last match did not reap dividends and the leg spinner will be back in the playing XI at the cost of Shaheen Afridi.
Wahab Riaz and Mohammad Amir have been good for the side and will continue to lead the bowling attack. Hasan Ali has not been able to pick up wickets in the middle overs, which had been his speciality for the last couple of years and will look to step up in the big encounter.
The team winning the toss will like to bat first and put runs on the board. The top three of both teams become very crucial in this respect.
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, Shaheen Afridi, Mohammad Amir
