The Asian giants will bring the curtains down on the first day's action when they face off in a crucial Group encounter.
Eight teams have been divided into two groups of four and only two teams from each group would advance to the next stage.
Apart from India and Pakistan, the Bradman Group comprises England and South Africa.
"Any game between India and Pakistan is to be savored. But what makes this clash even more mouth-watering is that there is every chance a place in the Cup will be at stake," said tournament director Mark Burns.
"If either team has the opportunity to knock the other out of the Cup, then we really can expect some fireworks," Burns added.
