India take on Pakistan in the Match No 19 of the ongoing ICC World T20 2016 tournament, at the Eden Gardens in Kolkata on Saturday. India are coming off a loss to New Zealand in the first match, whereas Pakistan will be high on confidence after their thrashing of Bangladesh by 55 runs in their opening match. India are currently at the fourth spot in the T20 World Cup 2016 Points Table with a poor Net Run Rate of -2.35, whereas Pakistan are placed at the second spot with +2.75 as their NRR. It must be remembered that the two teams who finish at the top spot will advance to the semi-final round. Live Cricket Scorecard: India vs Pakistan, ICC World T20 2016, Match 19 at Eden Gardens

Pakistan were terrific in all departments in their game against Bangladesh, as their top-order batsman finally stood up and did what they are supposed to. Sharjeel Khan was aggressive early on, and after his dismissal, comeback man Ahmed Shehzad teamed up with Mohammad Hafeez to notch up nearly a century stand. Shahid Afridi was among runs too, as he scored a 19-ball 49 to fire Pakistan past 200-run mark. Live Cricket Blog, India vs Pakistan, T20 World Cup 2016 IND vs PAK, 19th T20 Match at Kolkata

On the other hand, India were poor with the bat and paid a heavy price for it. They were bowled out for mere 79 chasing 127, and it will be a tough ask for them to recover and get their NRR right. India are not expected to change their side for this match, and Pakistan too are expected to make no changes with their team winning the last match with their team winning the last match.
