Last match

In their last warm-up match, India scored an excellent victory over Australia. This was a real confidence boost and means they won their 2 warm-up matches, although this game will be a more intense affair.

Australia batted first and put on 152/5. India did have Australia at 11/3 but Steve Smith, Glenn Maxell and Marcus Stonis put on some excellent runs for the middle order pushing the total on to a more respectable score. Kumar bowled well with 2/27 as did Chahar with 0/17 – an excellent economic rate.

KL Rahul put on 29 and Sharma 60. At this time the result was never in doubt and India cruised to the win. Ishan Kishan did not get in to bat but his form in the previous warm-up march was excellent.

Pakistan Trends

In their last warm-up match, Pakistan lost to South Africa in a very poor display. South Africa got the win hitting an astonishing 22 off the last over. Pakistan did well with the bat, recovering from seeing Azam clean bowled in the power play. They set South Africa 183 to win.

With South Africa at 2/15, there should have been only one winner. Then Van Der Dussen got in and smashed an unbeaten 101 off just 51 balls.

India vs Pakistan Match Prediction

As Indan cricket fans it is no suprise the team has backed India to get an opening match win over arch rivals, Pakistan. In the worm up matches India has perfromed very well and Pakistan has struggled. If Pakistan do not perfrom with the ball Inida will have the power in the top order to blow them away and leave them without a chance. Azam and Rizwan could pose India problems and these are the 2 key wickets for India to take.

Predicted result: India to win, by a large margin

Predicted score if batting first:

India 200/5

Pakistan 160/8
