The India vs Pakistan World Cup 2019 clash started at the scheduled time without any rain delay. Pakistan captain Sarfaraz Ahmed decided to give his bowlers first use of a green-tinged pitch in a crucial World Cup match.

"We will bowl first," said Sarfaraz. "India v Pakistan is a big game but we just have to focus on playing our best game."
