Both India and Pakistan would not be worried about who wins the toss considering their recent history with the coin toss at the Under-19 World Cup. Under the captaincy of Priyam Garg, Team India have lost the toss on three occasions in their four games in the U19 World Cup 2020 so far. However, losing the toss has had no bearing on the side, as they have coasted to victories in all their games so far to book a semi-final spot against Pakistan. Pakistan U-19s skipper Rohail Nazir also boasts a similar record at the toss, losing thrice so far, and much like India, it has not affected their neighbours as they have registered wins in all their completed games. Teams prefer to bat first at the Senwes Park, as teams batting second have to deal with the slowness of the pitch. The winner of the Ind vs Pak toss could choose to bat first and put up runs on the board to defend a total in a crunch game.
The Ind vs Pak toss will be conducted at 1:00 PM IST. The game will then commence at 1:30 PM IST. Scheduled to be finished around 5:30 PM IST, the first innings will then be trailed by an official 30-minute between-the-innings break before the second innings commences at 6:00 PM IST.
