Thoughts on today's game. The longer it is, the more settled the conditions, the better it is for India because I believe India is the better team and handles pressure better. The shorter it gets, the more it becomes anybody's game.— Harsha Bhogle (@bhogleharsha) June 16, 2019

Remember the endless debates?
Just remembering the hyperbole in News Media around ‘Should India Boycott The World Cup game vs Pakistan?’ People/channels who supported that will be sharing the/their platform with guests from across the border today.

It is currently cloudy in Manchester with the temperatures hovering around 8 degrees celsius. It is, however, expected to rain later in the day.
Cringeworthy. No other word can sum up the jingoistic fare television networks in India and Pakistan that are dishing out before the rubber between the two neighbours this Sunday. READ MORE
Should India bat or bowl first?
In India vs Pakistan World Cup matches, the luck of the toss has favoured India. India has also won five of those tosses and of course, all six games. It was only in Centurion (2003) that India chased after losing the toss. On each occasion, India elected to bat first and then went on to win.
