ICC Cricket World Cup: Captain Cool MS Dhoni has done it already! Can King Kolhi?

The cricket match that is set to put the two nations to a standstill will be televised in Sunday 16-June at 7:30pm local time!

Tickets for the mega clash were sold out within 48 hours of release, and this comes as no surprise. India v Pakistan is the most fierce battle on a Cricket field on can witness and fans can expect nothing less on Sunday.

Whether it’s the well-balanced and strong Indian side, or the super strong and inform top order batting line up of Pakistan, both the teams are going to put everything into this game.

Pakistan has never beaten India in an ICC World Cup match. India lost to Pakistan in the Champions Trophy Finals (the last time India played Pakistan).

There is a lot to test, and a lot on the line for both the teams. Apart from the pressure of it being a World Cup match, there is added pressure and responsibility given the entire nation is watching them, and have expectations. Well… it’s sure to be a thriller!

Players to watch:
India: Virat Kolhi, KL Rahul, Hardik Pandya & Jasprit Bumrah
Pakistan: Imam Ul Haq, Babar Azam, Fakhar Zaman &  Mohammad Amir

Do you think King Kolhi has it in him to bring the team together, and win India the World Cup – just like how the Great M.S. Dhoni did in 2011?
