T20 World Cup: India and Pakistan, the arch-rivals meet once again in the T20 cricket WC on Sunday. It is going to be a battle of nerves, and whichever team is able to handle this pressure, will get over the line. 

It is also very important to have the correct Playing XI. Many experts have said that they would pick an extra spinner considering the conditions in Dubai, but former India cricketer, Sanjay Manjrekar is averse to this idea. He has picked Shardul Thakur, a pacer, over Ravi Ashwin, a spinner. 

Sanjay Manjrekar posted a koo regarding the same. Take a look at Manjrekar's playing XI against Pakistan:

Manjrekar had previously pointed out that Ashwin hasn't been bowling well against South Africa, England, New Zealand, and Australia. "When people start talking about him as being one of the all-time greats of the game then I have a few problems," Manjrekar said to ESPNcricinfo.
