IND vs PAK Dream11 Team Prediction | Playing 11 | T20 World Cup 2021

India and Pakistan will clash in the 16th match of ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2021 at Dubai International Cricket Stadium, Dubai. We will cover IND vs PAK Dream11 Prediction, Probable Playing 11, and Fantasy Cricket Tips.


India won the first-ever T20I World Cup but struggled in the remaining editions of the tournament. They are currently at the 2nd position on the ICC T20I rankings.

Rohit Sharma and KL Rahul will open the innings for the team. Rahul is brilliant form as he was the third-highest run-scorer in IPL. Skipper Virat Kohli will play at his usual spot No.3. In the middle-order, Surya Kumar Yadav and Rishabh Pant will play a crucial role. Hardik Pandya and Ravindra Jadeja will play the role of finishers.

India has a good number of bowling options, and it is tough to choose among them. Bumrah, Shardul, and anyone among Bhuvneshwar or Shami are expected to play in the first match. Jadeja and Varun Chakravarthy will handle the spin department.

India has never lost to Pakistan in the World Cups and would want to continue this time.


Pakistan is an unpredictable team and can perform either exceptionally well or lose badly. They won the 2nd ICC T20 World Cup and are currently at the 3rd position in the T20I ranking.

Mohammed Rizwan and Babar Azam, among the Top 10 T20I batsmen, will open the innings for Pakistan. At No.3, Fakhar Zaman is in good form, and the middle-order will be handled by the two experienced players, Mohammed Hafeez and Shoaib Malik. In the end, Asif Ali and Shadab Khan will score some quick runs. 

The bowling unit has some talented players like Hasan Ali, Shaheen Afridi, and Haris Rauf. The spin department comprises Imad Wasim and Shadab Khan. Pakistan would be hoping to win their first match against India and create history in the World Cup.
