Meanwhile, India takes on Pakistan on August 28 and that is the big one and if things go as per expectation – the two teams could lock horns thrice in a span of 14 days.
The top-two teams from each group will further play in a ‘Super 4’ round, meaning there is a high probability of at least another India – Pakistan game in the second round before the final where the top two would feature.
