ICC World Cup 2019: IND vs PAK, A Most Watched Match in Cricket In this WC

Highlights

  • India on a roll after their victories over South Africa & Australia. Their last game against New Zealand was washed out.  
  • Pakistan would be hoping to repeat their Champions Trophy 2017 performances against India. 
  • India has never lost a game against Pakistan in ICC World Cups. 
It's India - Pakistan. It's the biggest rivalry in cricket, it's the game where there's no end to the hype, especially given it's also the World Cup. In India vs Pakistan a big clash scheduled on Sunday June 16th, weather is going to play critical role. India is going to take its third match against arch rival Pakistan in ICC World Cup 2019. A big schmooze over this clash is about weather's role during the match. Yet several matches in the ongoing ICC tournament have already rained out, but fans of both teams are expecting the match to remain unaffected by rain which is expected around 70% in the biggest clash of the tournament. Prior to the match date there were huge expectations of cloud cover in evening in Manchester. Cricketing logic hardly works for India v Pakistan. Actually, any game that involves Pakistan against India.

Points Table Standing:

As per stats in ICC WC19 Points Table India which is being considered hot favorite in the tournament currently is among the top half of the points table, on the other hand, Pakistan in the bottom half. ICC Tournament History also favors India against its rival. As everyone should be aware, they've never lost a World Cup game to Pakistan.
BCCI has called Rishabh Pant as a cover player in place of Shikhar Dhawan. Rishabh Pant has joined the Indian team camp. Rishabh Pant on Saturday also practiced on Saturday before India vs Pakistan match.
