India will face Pakistan in a highly-anticipated group stage match of the T20 World Cup 2024 on Sunday, in New York. The fixture promises to be an entertaining affair as Rohit Sharma’s team looks to build on their opening victory against Ireland, while Pakistan aims to recover from their loss to co-hosts USA.

Kuldeep Yadav is likely to be included in India’s playing XI, with his duel against Pakistan captain Babar Azam being a key highlight. This selection might result in either Axar Patel or Ravindra Jadeja sitting out. Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli are expected to open the innings for India, with Rishabh Pant slated for the No. 3 spot.

Pakistan’s captain Babar Azam criticized his bowlers following their defeat to the USA, and the seam-friendly conditions may favor a comeback for Shaheen Shah Afridi and the rest of Pakistan’s pace attack. India’s Jasprit Bumrah has already demonstrated the effectiveness of seam bowling on these pitches.
