India vs Pakistan Match Preview:

The Indian batting order looked in brilliant touch in the warmup matches. KL Rahul and Rohit Sharma did well while Suryakumar Yadav and Rishabh Pant, too, had a good hit in the warmups. Virat Kohli will be playing at number three. India will be willing to play Ishan Kishan in the middle order but in place of whom is the question. 

After two good outings in both warmup games, R Ashwin is likely to play against Pakistan along with Shardul Thakur, who could replace out-of-form Bhuvneshwar Kumar. Mohammad Shami and Jasprit Bumrah are the confirmed starters as fast bowlers. 

Pakistani batters had two good outings. Fakhar Zaman and Babar Azam will be the two key players for Pakistan. Mohammad Hafeez can be the game-changer, with both bat as well as the ball. 

In the first warmup, Pakistani bowlers were disciplined but in 2nd match, the bowlers went for plenty and couldn't defend 190 runs. Shaheen Afridi holds the key with the new ball.
