The ICC Women's World T20 2018 is underway in the Caribbean, with India, West Indies and Australia getting off to winning starts with one game washed out. On Sunday, the tournament gears up for one of the most keenly anticipated clashes, with India taking on arch-rivals Pakistan in Guyana.
India and Pakistan couldn't have got their campaigns started on more contrasting notes. While Harmanpreet Kaur's side achieved a comprehensive 34-run victory over New Zealand in the opening game of the tournament, Pakistan were easily overpowered by three-time champions Australia in the very next game that took place at the Providence Stadium in Guyana, losing by a sizeable margin of 52 runs.
India, thus, enter the contest as favourites thanks to the winning momentum that they have created with the victory over the White Ferns. Pakistan, on the other hand, suffered a fourth consecutive T20I loss, having been whitewashed at the hands of Australia in Malaysia in their last assignment before the tournament.
The last time the two sides met in the World T20, it was Pakistan that walked away with a narrow victory. Pakistan will look to derive inspiration from that result when they take on their much-fancied opponents on Sunday.

Umar Akmal filed the appeal with the CAS after an independent adjudicator of the Pakistan Cricket Board reduced his ban from three-years to 18 months.
The ICC said the decision was taken keeping in mind the workload of the players and also considering long term interest of women's cricket.
Right, that will be it. Huge appeal for LBW by Bumrah, he bowled it full and straight. Zampa departs. That also means that India have won by 13 runs. They will take some positives from this game into the T20I series and have avoided a clean sweep in the ODI series, the scoreline reading 2-1.
