IND vs PAK: Coming to the playing 11 of Pakistan, it is likely that will retain the duo of Fakhar Zaman and Imam Ul Haq at the top. The duo didn’t have a good outing in the first game and therefore would be looking to turn things around. 

Skipper Babar Azam no brainer will bat No.3. He had a staggering outing in the game against Nepal. He will be followed by keeper-batter Mohammad Rizwan, who will bat No.4. He also had a decent outing in the first game but got out in a disappointing way as he was run out.

Agha Salman and Iftikhar Ahmed, who scored a ton in the last game, are likely to be the two finishers for the team. They will be followed by Shadab Khan and Mohammad Nawaz. The duo will handle the spin bowling department and also are likely to play a handy role with the bat. 

The pace trio of Naseem Shah, Shaheen Afridi and Haris Rauf will no doubt be the starter in the IND vs PAK game. A lot would be relying on them as they will be key for Pakistan to win.
