India is ranked number one in the world for T20I and has a bunch of players who can be game changers at any point. With the likes of Rohit Sharma, Dhawan and Kohli, India is a top contender this year.
India’s new bowling sensation Jasprit Bumrah and his partner Bhuvneshwar Kumar are expected to dominate this IPL season as well.
Pakistan is one of the most unpredictable teams in the world and with their current form all we can hope for is a good performance from them. The two Pakistani all-rounders Mohammad Hafeez and Shoaib Malik will be key players for Pakistan in this season.
MS Dhoni will be leading his team Chennai Super Kings back to IPL after a two year ban. He will be joined by Suresh Raina, Dwayne Bravo, Ravindra Jadeja, Faf du Plessis, Murali Vijay and Kedar Jadhav.

With the match set to take place at Edgbaston in Birmingham, here are some key players you should watch out for…
INDIA: Virat Kohli
When it comes to the Indian cricket team, Virat Kohli is more than just a member of its squad. He is one of the most important players and has proved time and time again that he is a force to reckon with.
It’s safe to say that any team that wishes to play against India and win will have to defeat Virat Kohli first. He tops the list of Indian run-scorers with 31 centuries in ODIs.
A proven match-winner, he scored 173 runs (India’s highest ODI score) against Australia during the tri-series in Australia earlier this year.

We’re going to take a look at how we think both Team India and Pakistan will perform, by looking at which players are crucial to their chances.

It is to be noted that the match between India and Pakistan is highly anticipated, especially after the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 schedule was announced.
As many as 500 million people watch the match between the two rivals live and this figure is expected to go up further this year.
The top 5 players of India who can make a difference in the upcoming cricket world cup matches are:
1. Rohit Sharma:
Rohit Sharma is one of the most consistent batsmen in Indian team. He has been doing well for quite some time now. Rohit Sharma scored his best ever ODI score 333 against Sri Lanka in 2014-15 season. He has played 35 ODI innings since then and has an average of 76.22 including 7 hundreds.
The first two days of the Pakistan Super League (PSL) 2020 have been nothing short of a dream for the fans! The league is being held in the UAE, and it’s safe to say that both the teams and their fans are all geared up to give their best. With teams like Quetta Gladiators, Islamabad United, Peshawar Zalmi and more in contention, we can’t help but wonder who will win it this year. Or will it be a draw? Only time will tell!
The most coveted match of all time is between India and Pakistan, though. It’s got the perfect dose of action, drama, cricket and a whole lot of fun. In fact, this is one match that we look forward to every single year—and so do the players!
Pakistan has always had some talented players in the past… but now we have broken that stereotype. We’re coming back stronger than ever before. Just take a look at Shaheen Afridi—in fact, he was just named as one of Wisden’s five Cricketers of the Year for 2019!
The 18-year-old was chosen as one of Wisden’s Five Cricketers of the Year for 2019
