India will look to exploit Pakistan's uncertain form  when the two arch-rivals lock horns against each other at the  Nassau County International Cricket Stadium in their T20 World Cup clash on Sunday. 

India's think-tank might retain the same strategy used against Ireland, possibly leaving out Kuldeep Yadav in favor of an extra fast bowler, despite Kuldeep's strong record against Pakistani batters. 

The batting order, featuring Rohit and Virat Kohli as openers and Rishabh Pant at No. 3, is expected to remain unchanged.

Suryakumar Yadav will look for an improved outing from the previous game, where he was dismissed cheaply. 

Hardik Pandya, who has historically performed brilliantly against Pakistan, returned to wicket-taking after a dull IPL, picking three batters against Ireland.

India's likely XI 

Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli, Rishabh Pant, Suryakumar Yadav, Hardik Pandya, Shivam Dube, Ravindra Jadeja, Axar Patel, Jasprit Bumrah, Arshdeep Singh, Mohammed Siraj.
