Pakistan will begin their ICC Under-19 World Cup campaign against defending champions India in Dubai on Saturday.
Both Pakistan and India came head-to-head at Dubai International Cricket Stadium in the ACC Cup group match, wherein Pakistan prevailed by two runs. However, India retaliated the defeat by inflicting a 40-run victory over arch-rival in the final of that tournament.
Vijay Zol-led India would be a bit low on confidence after suffering defeats in both their warm-up matches. Sami Aslam-led Pakistan registered convincing victorious over Australia and UAE in both their practice games and will be psychologically ahead of India in this regard.
