IND vs PAK T20 World Cup: India have the advantage of heading into the contest on October 24, having never lost to their neighbours in previous meetings in the tournament. The Men in Blue have won all four games, including the epic 2007 final. Their last meeting in the format came in the 2016 World Cup, with India again clinching a comfortable win.

IND vs PAK T20 WC: Pakistan will hope to end their barren run against India and have announced multiple changes to their original squad. Veteran batsman Shoaib malik returned to the squad to replace an injured Sohaib Maqsood, while former captain Sarfaraz Ahmed, Haider Ali and Fakhar Zaman were also added to the team. The trio replaced Azam Khan, Mohammad Hasnain and Khushdil Shah in the 15-man team.

India are yet to announce any changes to their team and are likely to stick with their squad for the tournament.
