India look to hit form vs Pak

London: It may just be a warm up match before the T20 world Cup, but for India and Pakistan its another battle on the cricket ground as they clash each other on Wednesday.

India lost their first warm up match against New Zealand and Pakistan were thrashed by South Africa in their opening match.

India managed to beat Pakistan in the both their encounters in the inauguration edition of the T20 world cup in 2007.

Indians edged out Pakistan in the first match in a 'bowl-out' after the two sides had tied at the same score.

In the thrilling final match in Johannesburg, Pakistan were just a stroke away from victory when Misbah-ul Haqs scoop off Joginder Sharma landed in short fine-leg Sreesanth's hands.

Pakistan would be determined to settle the score for they might not get another opportunity to get even with the Indians unless both sides make it to the finals this time also.

India will miss the services of pacer Zaheer Khan and Virender Sehwag as both of them are suffering from shoulder injuries.

Pakistan, who lost their first warm up match against South Africa, could field 17-year-old fast bowling sensation Mohammed Aamer who is tipped to be the revelation of this tournament by fast bowling legend Wasim Akram.

Aamer, a tall and skinny lad from the Punjab province of Pakistan, regularly hits upwards of 140kmph in speed and he could make a formidable fast bowling trio with Umar Gul and Sohail Tanvir.
