All the five regular teams have named their squads. Jasprit Bumrah will be missing the campaign with an injury and so will Shaheen Afridi. Shaheen especially is a big miss for Pakistan given his exploits the last time both teams played each other in the T20 World Cup 2021.

Whenever these two teams play each other the pressure of winning the game is next level. The pressure often gets the players nervous and many a ties players from both teams have engaged in verbal arguments. The spat between Gautam Gambhir and Kamran Akmal during the 2010 Asia Cup and the Harbhajan Singh-Shoaib Akhtar spat from the same season are the most memorable ones. 

The culture of the teams has changed now. They play fierce and competitive cricket on the field and have great friendships off it. Meanwhile, in this article, we take a look at three Indian players who can get into a fight with Pakistani players if they try to get under their skin.

The Indian skipper maintains a calm demeanour while he is on the playing field. However, he is a team player and can get into an argument or a fight for the sake of his team. Personally, Rohit has had a good record against Pakistan in international cricket. His only blip was in the T20 World Cup game last year. He will be keen on setting the record right.
