We will bowl first, cannot get bigger than this, fantastic atmosphere. Sure lot of us are going to experience something really extraordinary. It’s a good track, not going to change much, dew could be a big factor and keeping that in mind, we want to bowl first. We want to keep striving for the best, we want to come out there and give our best in every game. Keeping the atmosphere in the team relaxed is the most important thing in a tournament like this.

IND vs PAK Live Score: Here’s what Ravi Shastri said about Shaheen
“I think Shaheen Shah Afridi against the Indian openers (will be key). It’s a given that that’s going to be the test, that it’s going to be the challenge. Whoever wins that will go a long way towards dictating terms in that game. Similarly, from Pakistan’s point of view, I think in this game, again it will be at the top. You want their captain to fire. Babar Azam has not had a great run of late, but if he starts firing, getting that 80-100 early doors in the tournament, it’ll make his job as a captain a lot easier,” Shastri told ICC.

India vs Pakistan Live Score: Pitch report
The pitch at the Narendra Modi Stadium, Ahmedabad is a balanced pitch. The average first innings score at this venue in the last 20 matches is 223 runs. The team winning the toss should look to bowl first as the majority of the games played on this ground have been won by the chasing side.
India vs Pakistan Live Score: All eyes on Ahmedabad pitch
All focus will be on the pitch at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad. Shubman Gill will play a huge role in today’s match, if he finds himself a place in the team. The batter dominated IPL 2023 with his powerful hitting, especially in Ahmedabad. Apart from this, the only question that India seek answer now is whether to play R Ashwin or Shardul Thakur, with both being contestants for the No. 8 slot. If the pitch is a batting paradise, then Shardul is a better choice but if there is a bit of grip available, Ashwin is the more viable option with longer boundaries on each side.
India vs Pakistan Live Score: Will Gill play?
India opener Shubman Gill missed out on the first two matches of the ongoing Cricket World Cup. However, India skipper Rohit Sharma revealed that the 24-year-old batter is most likely to play against Pakistan. “99 percent he is available for tomorrow’s game,” Rohit said during the pre-match media conference. Gill looked in fine touch during an extended session at the Motera on Friday.
India vs Pakistan Live Score: The Shaheen factor
Shaheen in Urdu means ‘King of Birds’ and Rohit won’t mind clipping his wings at the earliest inside an imposing amphitheatre that can house 132,000 people. Shubman Gill is recovering well post dengue and if he is ready to do to Shaheen what he did in the Asia Cup in Colombo with those half a dozen fours in Powerplay, then half the job of deflating Pakistanis would be done.
India vs Pakistan Live: High-voltage clash
Rohit Sharma’s poise, Virat Kohli’s intensity and Jasprit Bumrah’s cerebral artistry make India overwhelming favourites against arch-rivals Pakistan in the World Cup match in Ahmedabad on Saturday that has a compelling socio-political context, implications of which transcend beyond the 22-yards. On paper, India is a far superior side and with a batting line-up filled with alpha-male characters, it will all depend on how well left-arm pacer Shaheen Shah Afridi’s first spell pans out as the cross-border neighbours might not be short on intent but certainly in terms of ammunition. But this is a match where emotional quotients play a role and it has created heroes and villains in equal measure over the years.
