The India vs Pakistan matchday is here. In a few hours from now, perhaps the most awaited clash of the year will commence at the Dubai International Stadium. The match is as much about the fans and their emotions as it is about the rivalry that the team shares on the cricket field. India captain Virat Kohli maintains that it is "just another cricket match" for them even as there is a lot more buzz and eyes on this game than perhaps some of the other matches.

For die-hard fans though, it is an occasion to cherish and celebrate and show their love for the favourite side taking on their arch-rivals. One of the Pakistan cricket team's biggest fan Chacha Chicago or Mohammed Bashir is once again in the news ahead of the high-voltage India-Pakistan encounter.

While he was seen wearing a jersey that had India on one side while Pakistan on the other, he cheered for Pakistan in a video trending online. However, Chacha, who is a great admirer of former India captain and the current Team India's mentor MS Dhoni, shared a special message for the former World Cup-winning skipper. "Dhoni I love you from my heart," he said.

The video was shared by Bharat Army with the caption: "A message from Pakistan’s biggest cricket fan ChaCha for @msdhoni ahead of the big clash tomorrow! #BharatArmy #TeamIndia #MSD #INDvPAK #India #Pakistan #Cricket #T20WorldCup #COT."

Earlier, the Pakistan cricket team announced their 12 members who will compete in the game against India. The list of players announced by the Men in Green was largely on expected lines with the team management not choosing to experiment too much for the crunch match against Team India.

Mohammad Nawaz, Sarfaraz Ahmed and Mohammad Wasim Jr are the three names missing from the 15-member squad announced by the Pakistan Cricket Board for this event.

Pakistan's 12-member squad for India clash: Babar Azam, Mohammad Rizwan, Fakhar Zaman, Mohammad Hafeez, Shoaib Malik, Asif Ali, Imad Wasim, Shadab Khan, Hasan Ali, Shaheen Shah Afridi, Haris Rauf, Haider Ali

However, the Men in Blue are yet to announce their Playing XI for this all-important clash.
