India v Ireland - ICC Men's T20 Cricket World Cup West Indies & USA 2024

Arch-rivals Team India will face Pakistan in a high-profile T20 World Cup 2024 clash at the Nassau Country International Cricket Stadium in New York on Sunday, June 9. Both teams will be desperate to bag two points with Super 8 qualification on the cards.

India began their campaign with a comprehensive eight-wicket victory over Ireland in New York. The bowlers were rampant to restrict the Irish to 96 runs, with Hardik Pandya picking up three wickets. The Men in Blue chased down the total in just 12.2 overs, with skipper Rohit Sharma chipping in with a half-century.

Pakistan, on the other hand, went down to co-hosts USA in their opening game. After the match ended in a tie after 40 overs, the USA produced an exceptional performance in the Super Over to hand Babar Azam and company a defeat.

The Men in Green will look to put that loss behind them and come up with renewed energy against India to put their campaign back on track.

With both teams vying for a win, a cracker of a contest beckons fans in New York. People have come to the Nassau County International Cricket Stadium from all parts of the US to watch this high-octane clash.

Much to the dismay of all fans, New York might see occasional rainfall during the game. According to Accuweather, there is approximately a 50 percent chance of rainfall, coupled with intermittent clouds just before the start of the game. Thus, a delayed encounter is on the cards where the DLS method might come into play.

The conditions, meanwhile, will be pleasant throughout. The temperature will hover between 23 and 20 degrees Celsius, with 50 percent humidity expected.

"I think all of us need to contribute" - Indian skipper Rohit Sharma ahead of Pakistan game

India skipper Rohit Sharma stressed the importance of every individual putting in their best effort to win a big game against opponents like Pakistan.

Rohit told reporters on the eve of the game:

"I don't want to rely on one or two individuals to win us the game. I think all of us need to contribute. And of course, there are key players who are going to play key roles but I think everyone needs to chip in, in whatever they can, however they can, in their best possible way."
