IND vs PAK Dream11 Prediction Possible 11 Pitch Report: ODI World Cup 2023 Match 12 | IND vs PAK Dream11 Prediction | Ahmedabad Pitch Report

World Cup. India vs Pakistan. Does it get any bigger? The most-awaited contest of the year is here, as India lock horns against Pakistan in the world’s largest stadium. Both teams are coming with consecutive victories in the tournament, making the game even spicier.

India dismantled Afghanistan in their previous outing in Delhi. Jasprit Bumrah was at his best, snaring four wickets for 35 runs, whereas Hardik Pandya dismissed two batters. In the batting department, Rohit Sharma hit a magnificent century (131), the fastest by an Indian batter in the World Cup and crucial contributions from Ishan Kishan (47) and Virat Kohli (55) saw India home.

Meanwhile, Pakistan come in off the back of a morale-boosting win against Sri Lanka. Hasan Ali picked up four wickets, and Haris Rauf also picked a couple, but all the bowlers leaked plenty of runs. Meanwhile, Abdullah Shafique (113) and Mohammad Rizwan (131) amassed outstanding centuries to steer Pakistan to a memorable victory despite the early troubles.

Two exciting teams always form a jaw-dropping game. And when India and Pakistan play, the emotion and excitement reach a new level. Brace yourself. A new chapter to this greatest rivalry is all set to kick off.

ODI World Cup 2023 Match 12: IND vs PAK Possible Playing XIs

Shubman Gill has travelled to Ahmedabad, but his availability is uncertain. The team might not risk him, and Ishan Kishan will play another game if Gill is given more time to recover. Mohammed Shami, who did a fabulous job in the IPL at this ground, might come in for Shardul Thakur.

India: 1. Rohit Sharma (c), 2. Ishan Kishan/Shubman Gill, 3. Virat Kohli, 4. Shreyas Iyer, 5. KL Rahul (wk), 6. Hardik Pandya, 7. Ravindra Jadeja, 8. Jasprit Bumrah, 9. Kuldeep Yadav, 10. Mohammed Shami/Shardul Thakur, 11. Mohammed Siraj.

Pakistan will likely play the same team.

Pakistan: 1. Abdullah Shafique, 2. Imam-ul-Haq, 3. Babar Azam (c), 4. Mohammad Rizwan (wk), 5. Saud Shakeel, 6. Iftikhar Ahmed, 7. Shadab Khan, 8. Mohammad Nawaz, 9. Hasan Ali, 10. Shaheen Afridi, 11. Hasan Ali.

IND vs PAK Dream11 Prediction World Cup: Fantasy tips

India:

  • Rohit Sharma is coming on the back of a fantastic century against Afghanistan. He has 787 runs at an average of 49.18 and a strike rate of 89.22 in 18 ODI innings against Pakistan. This includes seven fifties and two centuries.
  • Virat Kohli enjoys batting against Pakistan. He has 662 runs at an average of 55.16 and a strike rate of 100.60 in 15 ODI innings against Pakistan. Kohli recently smashed a century in the Asia Cup.
  • KL Rahul is among the most consistent batters in the ODIs. He has hit one fifty and a century in two ODI innings against Pakistan, including a ton in the recent Asia Cup.
  • Rahul has 628 runs at a fabulous average of 78.50 and an 86.50 strike rate in 13 ODI innings this year.
  • Hardik Pandya is a must-pick in this game. He knows Ahmedabad inside out, and his record against Pakistan is also fantastic.
  • Hardik has 209 runs at a 69.66 average in four ODIs against Pakistan. He has also taken six wickets at 30.16 runs apiece.
  • Kuldeep Yadav has 10 wickets at an average of 13.50 and a strike rate of 21 in five ODI innings against Pakistan. In India’s previous game against Pakistan in the 2023 Asia Cup, Kuldeep dismissed as many as five batters while conceding only 25 runs in Colombo.
  • Mohammed Shami has five wickets at an average of 21.40 in three ODI innings against Pakistan. Shami wreaked havoc in the IPL and was unplayable, especially with the new ball. India should include him and hand the new ball straightaway.

Pakistan:

  • Abdullah Shafique looked in fantastic touch in the previous game. He has 193 runs at an average of 38.60 in his five-match ODI career. Shafique will look to make an impact in this game as well.
  • Babar Azam has scores of 5 & 10 in this World Cup. However, he is a quality batter. Babar will have to step up and score big in this game if Pakistan are to have any chance.
  • Mohammad Rizwan is a consistent performer, and is coming off a superb ton vs. Sri Lanka. He has 827 runs at an average of 75.18 and a strike rate of 94.73 in 17 ODI innings this year.
  • Shaheen Shah Afridi comes with a fear factor against India. He has five wickets at 31.20 runs apiece in three ODIs against the Men in Blue. The likes of Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli have struggled against the left-arm pacers early on, and Ahmedabad will assist the new-ball bowlers.
  • Rohit averages 30.80 and has been dismissed five times against the left-arm pacers in ODIs since 2022. He would need to be cautious against Shaheen Shah Afridi early on, who has troubled him in the past.
  • Haris Rauf has three wickets in two ODIs against India. Overall, Rauf has 29 wickets at an average of 22.75 in 15 ODI innings this year. Rauf will enjoy bowling in Ahmedabad, as the surface should have pace and bounce.

Other Stats and Facts

  • Head-to-head in the ODI World Cup: Played 7, India 7, Pakistan 0.
  • KL Rahul at No. 5 in ODIs: 904 runs, 56.50 avg, 96.58 SR, eight fifties and one century.
  • Babar Azam would like to improve his record against India. He has scored 168 runs at an average of 28 in six ODIs against them.
  • Virat Kohli vs left-arm orthodox in ODIs since 2022: 104 runs, 159 balls, 13 avg, 65.40 SR & eight dismissals. Mohammad Nawaz will be crucial against him.
  • Ishan Kishan requires 67 more to complete 1,000 ODI runs.

Narendra Modi Stadium, Ahmedabad, Pitch Report and Weather

The average first innings score has been 240, with the pacers snaring 62.3% of total wickets. There will definitely be some help for the pacers early on, and the batters will get value for their shots. The deck will get better for the batters under the lights, as New Zealand displayed in the tournament opener against England.

A temperature of around 34°C, with no threat of rain, is forecast during the match hours.
