The Virat Kohli-led Indian team will open against Pakistan as strong contenders considering their record against them in the World Cup. The Men in Green have never beaten India in the WC stage. India has a 12-0 record on him.
Pakistan will have Babar Azam, who is a fine player and the whole country is hopeful that he will rise to the occasion. For Pakistan to beat India, they have to play with their skin as India is a balanced unit and one of the contenders to win the title.
The fan excitement and predictions have already started pouring in on social media and the hype is fully expected. The last time both the teams were in England was during the 2019 World Cup, where the Kohli-led side was on top.
