The team dominated right from the start only to lose the game in the final ten deliveries.
Pakistan, on the other hand, played in the tri-series alongside Ireland and Australia.

IN-W vs PK-W Today Match Prediction, Commonwealth T20 Games 2022, Who Will Win the Match?
India to win
India is the favourite here. They have a good record against the Pakistan team in any format, be it ODI or T20I. They have also won their last four encounters against Pakistan with ease. Having said that this is their first meeting since 2018 in this format. A lot has changed since then. Pakistan is expected to put up a good fight here. Mind you, they did put pressure on the Indian team during the World Cup recently. India was then saved by the lower-order batters.
Team Update/Players Availability/Injury News
- Pakistan will look to promote Nida Dar up the order.
- Pooja Vastrakar and S Meghana are likely to come back to the Indian team.
