ICC CWC 2019 India vs Pakistan 22nd Match Preview Prediction – India’s performance in this World Cup has been absolutely spot on as they beat two strong opponents first up in South Africa and Australia. They were the favourites against New Zealand as well, but unfortunately that game had to be called off because of consistent rains and the men in blue could get just one point from that game. However they are still in a pretty strong position to make the top 4.

As far as Pakistan are concerned, they have lost two out of their three games so far and they are currently at no. 8 in the standings which is not a great position to be in. So more than India, it’s the Pakistani team which is desperate for 2 points from this game. However India would give their 100% as well because they wouldn’t want to lose the winning momentum they are currently in.

Possible changes in the two teams


India might make a couple of changes in their playing XI. One is of course a forced change as Shikhar Dhawan is out for a few matches. They will have to bring in a batsman to replace him and whoever comes in will probably bat at no. 4 because KL Rahul is likely to move up and open with Rohit Sharma in the absence of Dhawan.

While Vijay Shankar is the first in the pecking order going by the statements of the chief selector MSK Prasad that he had made at the time of the announcement of the squad, the Indian team management might consider Dinesh Karthik as well, given his experience in the English conditions.

Apart from this, India might pick an extra fast bowler if it’s a green-top and the conditions are overcast and if it happens, Mohammed Shami might take the place of Kuldeep Yadav in the XI.

There is a possibility of Pakistan making a couple of changes too. Since the pitch at Old Trafford, where the game is to be played, suits the spinners, they might bring back Shadab Khan and in that case, Shaheen Afridi might have to warm the bench.

Pakistan might also contemplate replacing Shoaib Malik with Haris Sohail as Malik has looked in awful form with the bat so far.

Players to watch out for

India (Rohit Sharma and Yuzvendra Chahal)

Rohit has hit the ball crisply in the World Cup as he has scored a hundred and a fifty in the two games he has played. He is known to be someone who is a little vulnerable against swing bowling and England is a place where the ball swings early on, but he has applied himself really well and once Rohit gets his eyes in, there is nobody more dangerous with the bat.

Chahal’s rhythm right since the IPL has been fantastic and he is continuing the good work in the World Cup as well. The leg spinner has provided his team the breakthroughs whenever his captain has turned to him.

Pakistan (Mohammad Hafeez and Mohammad Aamir)

Hafeez’s timing in the last couple of games has been as good as ever. His bat is making a cracking sound as he is hitting the ball and that sound itself tells that he is in splendid form. And since he is a brilliant player of spin, he can score at a fair clip in the middle overs. So India will have to dismiss him early.

In the recent times, Mohammad Aamir seemed to have lost his ability to swing the ball which was why he was not getting too many wickets, but in the last game against West Indies, there was a hint of that inward shape in Aamir’s bowling. If he gets the ball swinging back in to the right-handers again, the Indian batsmen will have to be careful against him.
