India and Pakistan teams on paper
On papers, Team India looks strong although inform opener Shikhar Dhawan will not play due to injury. It would be interesting to see how team management manages his absence. Rohit scored an excellent hundred against Australia and now he would be up against Amir. In the absence of Dhavan, Kohli, Rahul and middle order may need to step up their game. In pace department, Bumrah along with Bhuvi is in good form. Chahal will be taking care of the spin department along with Kuldeep.
