India will take on Pakistan in match number 19 of the 2024 T20 World Cup at the Nassau County International Cricket Stadium in New York on Sunday, June 9. There are high expectations from the marquee clash, particularly since there has not been much excitement around the preceding games.

The Men in Blue have a brilliant record against Pakistan in T20 World Cups, having lost only one game to their arch-rivals so far. They began their campaign with an eight-wicket triumph over Ireland. Bowling first, India bundled out Ireland for 96 in 16 overs and then chased the total in 12.2 overs.

Pakistan, on the other hand, suffered a Super Over loss to United States. Batting first, they managed just 159-7, which was also only possible due to a late fightback. United States responded with 159-3 and then stunned Babar Azam and co. by winning the Super Over.

Pakistan have won the toss and have opted to bowl first. Babar Azam said:

"[We want to bowl] because of the weather and little bit of moisture on the pitch. We will look to exploit conditions in the first six overs."

Pakistan have given rest to Azam Khan; Imad Wasim comes in. India are sticking to the same combination.
