Pakistan had handed India a 10-wicket defeat in the previous edition held in UAE and the Men In Blue will hope to turn things around this time. Following the encounter at the previous editions, both the teams met twice at Asia Cup 2022, which saw India and Pakistan win one match each.

The Indian skipper had earlier mentioned that the playing XI for the encounter has already been decided, but declined to pass further information during the toss ahead of the warm-up tie against Australia, which India won by 6 runs.

Pakistan, on the other hand, also engaged in a warm-up match ahead of the Super 12 stage. However, the Men In Green were outplayed by England in the warm-up match, as the latter chased down the 161-run target with 26 balls to spare.
