Pakistan captain Sarfaraz Ahmed won the toss and chose to bowl against India at Old Trafford in Manchester.

Vijay Shankar makes his World Cup debut and what’s interesting is that both teams have chosen to play two specialist spinners each.

After winning the toss Sarfaraz Ahmed said, “We will bowl first. It is raining so conditions are good for bowling. We have quality spinners and we have backed them today. We are not thinking about 6-0.”

Virat Kohli said, “We would have bowled first to be honest. Wicket looks really nice though and we have two wrist spinners in our team. We will be in good stead if we bat well. That’s the kind of attention this game brings but once you enter the field it is all about playing your game. We have been playing good cricket and we don’t want to tinker much with the team combination. We have one forced change, Shikhar misses out and Vijay Shankar comes in his place. He is a solid batsman.”

India (Playing XI): Rohit Sharma, Lokesh Rahul, Virat Kohli(c), Vijay Shankar, MS Dhoni(w), Kedar Jadhav, Hardik Pandya, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Kuldeep Yadav, Yuzvendra Chahal, Jasprit Bumrah

Pakistan (Playing XI): Imam-ul-Haq, Fakhar Zaman, Babar Azam, Mohammad Hafeez, Sarfaraz Ahmed(w/c), Shoaib Malik, Imad Wasim, Shadab Khan, Hasan Ali, Wahab Riaz, Mohammad Amir

In his pitch report, Michael Clarke said, “the toss won’t matter a lot. States it looks a good wicket, it is a little dry and there is a little moisture underneath the wicket as there was rain yesterday. Mentions It should be a good batting wicket but you have to get through the new ball. Ends by saying the weather might play a role in the decision taken by the captains during the toss as DLS could come in play.”

The forecast is that light showers are on the cards on Sunday afternoon, thus affecting the marquee clash between the arch-rivals. Considering the unpredictability of the English weather, anything is possible.

Dark clouds hovered over Old Trafford for most of Saturday, a grim reminder that weather may have the last laugh. As it is, met forecasters are anticipating rain on Sunday, with a higher probability of it in the second half of the day. Clearly, the teams will have to keep it in their plans for the game as a curtailed game and the Duckworth-Lewis equation are very much on the cards.
