The MCG is a fitting venue for one of global sport’s most intense and unmissable rivalries that headlines the opening weekend of the Super 12 stage of this year’s competition.
India are looking to win the tournament for the first time since the inaugural edition in 2007, having reached the semi-finals in 2016 before falling at this stage last year, suffering the humiliation of a 10-wicket hammering by Pakistan in the process.
Despite their bowling output being weakened by the absence of the injured Jasprit Bumrah, India are well-fancied for success Down Under with a terrific batting unit that includes the likes of Virat Kohli and Suryakumar Yadav.
Pakistan won the T20 World Cup in England in 2009 but have fallen at the penultimate hurdle three times since then, bested by Australia in the semi-finals in Dubai last year.
Here’s how to watch Sunday’s clash live.
