T20 World Cup 2021: India’s Predicted Playing XI Against Pakistan. The ICC T20 World Cup 2021 is slated to be played between 17th October and 14th November 2021. As many as 16 teams are set to battle it out for the coveted trophy. The tournament is divided into Round 1 followed by the Super 12 stage.

Team India are placed in Group 2 of the Super 12 stage. The Men in Blue will start their campaign in a high-octane clash against Pakistan. The two teams last faced each other in the ICC 2019 World Cup.

As far as the T20 internationals are concerned, both the teams have played against each other in 8 T20 internationals, out of which India have managed to win on 7 occasions. Pakistan have beaten India only on one occasion.

India will be playing against Pakistan for the ninth time in a T20 international. They would be keen to start their campaign on a winning note. Here’s a look at our predicted playing XI of the Indian Cricket Team for the highly anticipated encounter.

The last time India played with its full strength in a T20 international, Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma opened the innings. However, given the way KL Rahul batted in IPL 2021, it’s unlikely that he would play at number three or four. Both Rohit Sharma and KL Rahul should open the batting for India in the opener.
