How can India play Pakistan again in T20 World Cup 2022? - Check Details

After a thrilling encounter between arch-rivals India and Pakistan, cricket fans from around the world want both teams to play one more game in this ICC T20 World Cup. It is something that would make ICC very happy. But is it possible? Can India play Pakistan again in this T20 World Cup? The answer is yes. But the probability of that happening is very low. India and Pakistan can clash against each other only in the final of the T20 WC 2022. If that is to happen both the teams will have to finish at top of the Super 12 group stage beating teams like Bangladesh and South Africa and then in the semifinals, they will have to beat probably Australia, England, New Zealand or Sri Lanka. If all these variables stir in favour of India and Pakistan, cricket fans will witness yet another epic encounter.
