BIRMINGHAM, England (AP) — India has won the toss and chosen to field first in its Champions Trophy match against Pakistan at Edgbaston.

With India already having won Group B — and Pakistan eliminated — local bragging rights are the main thing at stake on Saturday in one of the most hostile rivalries in world cricket.

Asad Shafiq replaces Imran Farhat for Pakistan, which has lost both its group games, while India is unchanged after wins over South Africa and West Indies.



India: Shikhar Dhawan, Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli, Dinesh Karthik, Suresh Raina, Mahendra Singh Dhoni (captain), Ravindra Jadeja, Ravichandran Ashwin, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Ishant Sharma, Umesh Yadav.

Pakistan: Nasir Jamshaid, Kamran Akmal, Muhammad Hafeez, Asad Shafiq, Shoaib Malik, Misbah ul Haq, Umar Amin, Wahab Riaz, Saeed Ajmal, Junaid Khan, Muhammad Irfan.
