Captain Rohit Sharma and head coach Rahul Dravid have a lot to ponder upon, with the questions still persisting regarding their best XI for the T20 WC opener. While Rohit Sharma has revealed that he already has a team ready, there is competition for places in the bowling department.

Harshal Patel and Mohammad Shami are battling out for a solitary spot, while the same goes for spinners Yuzvendra Chahal and Ravichandran Ashwin. There has been little to choose between the options in both cases and the washed-out warm-up has robbed India of a chance of putting them up for a final test.

As for the conditions, Rain threat is increasing by the day on the blockbuster India vs Pakistan clash in the ICC T20 World Cup 2022. The Australian MET department has a grim weather forecast for Sunday (October 23). With nearly 25mm rain expected on the weekend, signs are not good for fans and broadcasters of the game.
