India's match against New Zealand was washed out as these two teams shared a point each.

India enter as clear favorites and are expected to overcome Men In Green. However, Pakistan would look upto Mohammad Amir to tackle India's top order.

Team news

Virat Kohli, Mohammad Amir to watch out for

As for the players, skipper Virat Kohli is undoubtedly the first man to watch out for. He has the tendency to perform in big matches.

Among others, India's pacers Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Jasprit Bumrah would also be in the spotlight, owing to their lethal form.

As for Pakistan, opener Imam-ul-Haq has been in good form, while Mohammad Amir's pace could become India's nightmare.

Pakistan have the edge historically, India are a better side

Both the teams have clashed on six occasions in the World Cup, with India winning all the games to date.

A total of five ODIs have been played between the sides in England, with India winning three, while Pakistan have pocketed two.

Overall, both the teams have come across in 130 ODIs, with India winning 54 times, while Pakistan have scripted 73 wins.

Pitch report

A low-scoring track awaits at Old Trafford

With a 60% chance of rain, we expect a truncated game today.

Further, the wicket of this venue doesn't assist batsmen. It has generally been a low-scoring one, with an average score of around 220-230.

Thus, the teams are likely to move in with a bowling dominated squad.

If there is rain, the team winning the toss would like to bowl first.
