The hosts fielded an unchanged squad. India made two changes with Yuvraj brought back at the expense of Robin Uthappa while seamer Ishant replaces Manpreet Gony.
India produced a clinical effort in their first group tie against HK. Top-order batters got runs and seamers and slow bowlers bowled exceptionally well.
In contrast, Pakistan did not have a great start but the hosts are not bothered by the hiccups they went through against the tournament underdogs and have declared that it is going to be a different story against the Indians.
India: Gautam Gambhir, Virender Sehwag, Rohit Sharma, Yuvraj Singh, Yusuf Pathan, MS Dhoni, Suresh Raina, Piyush Chawla, Praveen Kumar, RP Singh and Ishant Sharma.
Pakistan: Fawad Alam, Salman Butt, Younis Khan, Misbah-ul-Haq, Mohammad Yousuf, Shoaib Malik, Shahid Afridi, Sarfraz Ahmed (wk), Umar Gul, Sohail Tanvir and Iftikhar Anjum.
