There are a lot of people who have been waiting for this 2019 Cricket World Cup a long time – India vs Pakistan. There were rumours of more than 500,000 people applying to buy tickets to watch this live at Old Trafford, and we're expecting a worldwide audience in the tens of millions. National pride is at stake in this one – as well as a potential spot in the last four of the World Cup – and we've created this guide for getting an India vs Pakistan live stream, regardless of where you are in the world.
We'll forget about the international geo-politics of this encounter, and concentrate on the game itself. It's all set up to be a cracker, with both teams showing signs of brilliance already in the 2019 Cricket World Cup.
Winners of this competition in 1983 and 2011, India arrived late to the 2019 tournament to recover from another intense IPL. But Virat Kohli's men have looked no-less fresh for that, with a stonking win over South Africa (thanks, in large part, to Rohit Sharma's outstanding century) and then a strong victory over pre-tournament favourites Australia. Their batting line-up is looking particularly intimidating, while Jasprit Bumrah continues to show why he has risen to the top of the world rankings in this format.
Pakistan are really living up to their reputation as cricket's most unpredictable team. From shocking against the Windies to pulling off a shock against England and almost doing the same against the Aussies, it's near impossible to forecast what version of the team will turn up against India. Pretty much all of their batsmen have contributed with runs and could convert higher, and they'll be hoping that Mohammed Amir can impress once again with the ball.
Both teams will be desperate to win this match that resonates way beyond the field of play and the Cricket World Cup. Getting an India vs Pakistan live stream is the easy bit and you can continue reading to see how to watch from just about anywhere on Earth.
