India and Pakistan will battle it out for the eighth time in T20 World Cups when they meet in a highly charged encounter on Sunday. Rohit Sharma and Babar Azam will be wary of the kind of conditions that are prevalent at the Nassau County International Cricket Stadium in New York

Notably, Team India began their T20 World Cup 2024 campaign with a win over Ireland in perhaps one of the most challenging conditions. Rohit Sharma scored a brilliant fifty before he was struck on the arm and had to retire hurt himself. The biggest plus for India will be the bowling form of Jasprit Bumrah as well as the support he got from Arshdeep Singh and Mohammed Siraj. 

Babar Azam’s team were given a rude jolt when they were beaten by USA in their opening encounter. Pakistan will be wary that they need to better their bowling and even some aspects of their batting. Shaheen Afridi and Babar Azam himself will be the key with the bat and also with the ball.

Here are the top 3 player battles for India vs Pakistan T20 World Cup 2024 clash: 

3. Rishabh Pant versus Haris Rauf

The prolific wicketkeeper-batter Rishabh Pant made a glorious return to Team India in the ongoing T20 World Cup 2024. His breezy knock against Ireland was enough to guide the Men In Blue home with seven overs to spare. Ever since his return to cricket Pant has been scoring runs on a consistent basis. His ability to hit the ball to various parts of the ground will worry Babar Azam. 

The task of keeping Rishabh Pant quiet will be entrusted on the shoulders of Haris Rauf. The right-arm pacer has the extra pace which can trouble Pant and over the years the Indian star has been prone to having a few issues against bowlers who can bowl quick.
