The semi-finals will be played on 10 and 11 November between the top-2 ranked teams of both the Super 12 groups. Both semifinal matches will be hosted by Dubai.

It will be the first time in two years that India will play against Pakistan on the cricket field. The last time two sides met was in 2019 in the ICC Men’s ODI World Cup where India beat their Asian counterparts handsomely. Team India have a 100% win-loss record against Pakistan and would be hoping to continue their undefeated run in the World Cup.

T20 World Cup 2021 India vs Pakistan

The entire World Cup was initially scheduled to be played in India but due to high number of covid-cases and other travel norms, BCCI decided to shift the entire T20 World 2021 to UAE (United Arab Emirates) and Oman.

Who said what?

Babar Azam (Pakistan Team Captain): “We know the pressure and the high intensity of each game, especially the first one. Hopefully, we can win the match and carry the momentum forward. Your belief and confidence as a group matter a lot before a tournament. As a team, our confidence and morale are really high. We are not thinking of the past but the future. We are preparing for that. I am fully confident that we are well prepared and will play good cricket on the day.”

Gautam Gambhir (Ex-India Cricketer): “KL Rahul and Rohit Sharma to open the batting, Virat Kohli to bat at No.3, Suryakumar Yadav at No.4, Rishabh Pant at No.5, Hardik at No.6, Jadeja at No.7, Bhuvi at No.8, Varun Chakravarthy at No.9, Shami at No.10 and Bumrah No.11. Probably had I had Shardul Thakur, I would have picked him to bat at No.8 and Varun Chakravarthy at No.9 and then I could have probably gone with Shami and Bumrah.”
