Who’ll win: Virat Kohli’s India vs Babar Azam’s Pakistan?
The stakes in India vs Pakistan matches are always very high. Their rivalry is always intense as the victory brings respect while a loss is none less than humiliation.
This time, India seems to be a very balanced side with their key players like Rohit Sharma, KL Rahul, and Mohammed Shami showing great form. They also have captain Kohli along with the best mentor one can have, MS Dhoni.
On the other side, Pakistan has a combination of experienced players with new talents. Babar Azam, Mohammad Rizwan, and Fakhar Zaman have been in great form recently. However, their bowling unit seemed to suffer in the warm-up match against SA.
For predictions, we’ll place our bets on India considering their brilliant run and their history against Pakistan in the ICC tournaments. Let’s see if Pakistan becomes able to turn the tables.
