OB Bureau

New York: Pakistan captain Babar Azam won a crucial toss and asked Rohit Sharma to take first strike in the T20 World Cup clash at Nassau County International Cricket Stadium here on Sunday.

The start of the mega clash between the fierce rivals was delayed by about 50 minutes as it started raining after the toss took place.

India are playing the same XI that started their campaign with a victory against Ireland.

For Pakistan, it’s a must-win game after having been stunned by tournament debutants USA in their opener.

The men in green have made one change from the USA game, bringing in left-arm spinner Imad Wasim for Azam Khan.

India hold a massive 6-1 advantage in head-to-head clashes with Pakistan in T20 World Cup.

Pakistan’s only win came in the 2021 edition of the tournament in Dubai, when the men in green thrashed the blue army by 10 wickets.
