IND vs PAK, T20 WC 2024: The match which cricket fans were eagerly waiting for in the T20 World Cup 2024 being hosted by America and West Indies is going to start in a few hours. This evening, the great match will be played between India and Pakistan at Nassau County International Stadium in New York. Let’s take a look at the important statistics related to this match.

Let us tell you that it will start at 8 pm Indian time. The Indian team led by Rohit Sharma will be high on confidence against its arch-rival Pakistan. India had started its campaign with a victory. The Rohit brigade defeated Ireland by 8 wickets in the first match. Indian players will be eager to show their strength again on Sunday. On the other hand, the Pakistan team has not played any match in Nassau Stadium yet. The Pakistani team, which lost to America in the first match, reached here only on Thursday night. They have not got a chance to adapt to the situation, which may harm them. If they lose to India, their path to enter the Super Eight stage will become almost impossible.

Indian vs Pakistan in T20 World Cup

A total of 7 matches have been played between India and Pakistan in the history of T20 World Cup. India has won 5 of these matches while Pakistan has won only one match. One match did not result in any result. In the last T20 World Cup, India defeated Pakistan by 4 wickets.

Pitch Report of Nassau County Stadium, New York

This India-Pakistan match is to be held at the Nassau County International Cricket Stadium in New York, which has a capacity of 34000 spectators. The pitch of this ground has been a topic of constant discussion. Four drop-in pitches were laid here in April under the guidance of Adelaide Oval’s chief curator Damien Hogg, which have not been set yet. The uneven bounce from the pitch is raising questions about the safety of the batsmen.

The match will be played amid tight security

After the terrorist threat from ISIS at the beginning of the tournament, tight security measures have been taken for the match. Nassau County Police Commissioner Patrick Rider recently gave information about the security arrangements. He said, ‘The security arrangements for the India-Pakistan match are similar to those made a few years ago to welcome the then US President Barack Obama.’

Indian captain Rohit Sharma suffered a shoulder injury in the match against Ireland, due to which he had to leave the field. This pitch has double bounce. Some balls are rising and some are staying low. In such a situation, it is very difficult to score runs here, batsmen are also getting injured. Both India and Pakistan have excellent fast bowlers. Batsmen will be put to a tough test on difficult wickets against their speed.

The team that wins the toss has the upper hand

It is worth noting that a total of 7 matches have been played between India and Pakistan in the T20 World Cup. Team India has won 6 matches. On the other hand, Pakistan has been able to defeat the Indian team only once. But the surprising thing is that in the last 5 matches, the team that has chased the target has won. That is, in the last 5 T20 World Cup matches between India and Pakistan, the team batting first has always lost.

Will Kuldeep get a chance?

Against Ireland, India did not field left-arm wrist spinner Kuldeep Yadav and an additional fast bowler was included. The same combination is expected to remain against Pakistan as the match will be played on a new turf. In batting, Rohit and Virat Kohli will open the innings, while Rishabh Pant will come at number three.

Virat Kohli shines in India Pakistan rivalry

Virat Kohli has been the star of India Pakistan rivalry. He is the highest run scorer in both these teams. Kohli has scored 308 runs in 5 matches against Pakistan in the T20 World Cup. Apart from Virat Kohli, no other batsman in the current squads of both the teams has been able to cross the 100 run mark. In such a situation, Indian fans will once again expect a good performance from him.
