India's match washed out, Pakistan fail against Australia
India's match against New Zealand was washed out as these two teams shared a point each.
On the other hand, Pakistan lost to Australia by 41 runs and they lost two crucial points for it.
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.
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.

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.
Here are the predicted XI for this big battle
India: KL Rahul, Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli (captain), Vijay Shankar, MS Dhoni (wicket-keeper), Kedar Jadhav, Hardik Pandya, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Mohammed Shami, Yuzvendra Chahal, Jasprit Bumrah.
Pakistan: Imam-ul-Haq, Fakhar Zaman, Babar Azam, Mohammad Hafeez, Sarfaraz Ahmed (wicket-keeper & captain), Shoaib Malik, Shadab Khan, Wahab Riaz, Hasan Ali, Shaheen Afridi, Mohammad Amir.
