KARACHI: The marquee clash of the 2019 World Cup between Pakistan and India will take place on June 16 in Manchester, sources have confirmed.

The match between the arch-rivals is considered to be the best during any tournament and the International Cricket Council (ICC) mostly pits them together in any tournament.

Case in point is the 2017 Champions Trophy where both teams played their first group match against each other, which Pakistan lost to India.

However, Pakistan came back strong after the opening loss to avenge their defeat at the grandest stage of them all — the final — where they came out victors courtesy Fakhar Zaman’s century and Pakistani bowlers unprecedented show with the ball.

The match holds importance for other reasons as the two nations aren’t playing any bilateral cricket outside the ICC tournaments due to political tensions.
