Both undefeated teams in the tournament, Pakistan and India, are vying for two crucial points in Ahmedabad.
Match 12 Update: Pakistan at 23/0 After 5 Overs Against India
Indian skipper, Rohit Sharma, won the toss and chose to field first. India introduced a change in their playing XI, with a fit-again Shubman Gill replacing Ishan Kishan. Pakistan’s openers, Abdullah Shafique and Imam-ul-Haq, began on a positive note. They were cautious against the disciplined bowling of Jasprit Bumrah, but capitalized on any loose delivery from Mohammed Siraj.
Babar Azam’s Pakistan team remained unchanged from their previous match.
This marks the eighth face-off between these fierce rivals in the Cricket World Cup. India has a clean sweep record, having won all seven previous encounters.
India triumphed over Pakistan by a significant margin of 89 runs in their last World Cup encounter in 2019.
However, with significant changes in both teams’ line-ups, the Ahmedabad match promises to be a fresh contest.
