Pakistan won the toss and are bowling first in the fourth match of the ICC T20 World Cup. For India, they are looking in good form having won their two warm-up games against England and Australia. For Pakistan, they have experience of playing the UAE but they lack match-winning abilities. The Men in Blue have won five matches against the arch-rivals in the history of the T20 World Cup.
However, Pakistan have a captain in the form of Babar Azam, who has scored the most T20I runs in the last three years. He has accumulated 1173 runs while Kohli is second on the list, with 993.
KL Rahul and Fakhar Zaman are the players to watch out for their respective teams.
The pitch in Dubai is expected to favour the slower bowlers and even the pacers will have to use variation to trouble the batters.
