7.52 pm local time Covers off now, the Indians are in their huddle. Salman Butt and Imran Nazir are Pakistan's openers. RP Singh will open the bowling for India. Two slips in place.

7.48 pm Pakistan need 142 from 20 overs at 7.10 runs per over. If they score the runs at a rate of 9.6 an over or more, which means in 14.4 overs or less, India will be knocked out of the tournament because they will have a worse net run-rate than Scotland.

It's drizzling again and the covers are back on the square.
