KOLKATA -- In one of the most awaited and exciting fixture of the T-20 World Cup, the Indian Men's team will face Pakistan at Eden Gardens in Kolkata this evening.

After losing the first ICC World T20 Super 10 clash against New Zealand at Nagpur by 47 runs, the Mahendra Singh Dhoni-led Team India will play under pressure to register a win against their arch rivals.

On the other hand, after having won their first match against Bangladesh by 55 runs, the Pakistside will be all confident when they face the men in blue.

Unprecedented security cover has been put in place for the India-Pakistan clash, which will begin at 7.30 this evening.

This encounter comes with its own share of controversies as the venue battle and the security concerns for the Pakistan squad.

India thrashed Pakistan in their last match at the Asia Cup, and the hosts will be looking forwards to repeat the fireworks.
