Rohit Sharma is determined to continue India’s tradition of defeating Pakistan in the World Cup, while Babar Azam is eager to create a historic moment by becoming the first Pakistani captain to conquer the Blues in a 50-over World Cup, similar to his achievement in the T20 World Cup 2021 in Dubai.

Both teams are in superb form. Pakistan arrives in Ahmedabad after successfully chasing down a formidable target against Sri Lanka, marking the largest successful chase in the history of the mega event.

India, on the other hand, showcased their prowess by efficiently pursuing a target of 273 runs in just 35 overs against Afghanistan in their previous game, demonstrating their readiness for this highly anticipated encounter.

In the overall history of ODIs, the arch-rivals have faced each other 134 times. Pakistan has secured victory in 73 matches, while India has emerged triumphant in 56, with five matches ending in a tie. However, their head-to-head record in the World Cup is one-sided, with India having emerged victorious in all seven of their encounters.

Historically, the pitch in Ahmedabad has favored the batsmen, with the highest ODI score at the stadium being 365, achieved by South Africa against Zimbabwe in 2010. However, recent pitch conditions at the Narendra Modi Stadium suggest that it may offer advantages to the bowlers, particularly pacers who could exploit early seam and swing.
