The hype for India vs Pakistan can be gauged by the fact that when the World Cup tickets were opened for sale, this clash got sold out within 48 hours. People still keen to watch the match will have to shell out maybe 3-4 times the original price, and like every time, there are those who think it’s worth it and that says it all about the cricketing rivalry between the neighbouring countries. With the buzz, naturally each and every detail related to the match turns out to be important. Till the teams come out on the field, factors like strategies and practice often give the opposition an idea of what their opponents are planning against them. What’s interesting about Pakistan’s practice session has been fact that the team has been practising indoors.
Republic TV managed to get exclusive footage of the team’s indoor practice session. In the video, one can see the unit forming the huddle and discussing the strategies. The captain, Sarfaraz Ahmed is seen giving a talk in front of his players. Some of the team members are also seen joking around, while some can be seen indulging in fielding drills.

Earlier in the day, Team India was also seen practicing, but they chose to do it on the field. Virat Kohli and Co also brushed up their fielding skills, amid the rain clouds looming large over them.
As per the weather in Manchester, the chances of rain are guaranteed and a full game looks unlikely. If the match does happen, it’s likely to be a truncated match.
