India vs Pakistan: Pakistan’s Predicted Playing XI Against India – ICC T20 World Cup 2022 Super 12, Group 2, Match 16
Babar Azam (C)
After a forgetful Asia Cup campaign where he just scored 65 runs in six innings, Babar would be looking to get back into the very first game against India and make a statement.
Mohammad Rizwan (WK)
Rizwan scored the most runs in the Asia Cup and is the most in-form Pakistani batter at the moment. He will be key for his side in the series. He has scored 193 runs against India so far in T20Is.
