The Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG) was packed when the two teams walked out and stood for the National Anthems. Fans of both the teams sang their respective national anthems along with their team, turning the iconic stadium Down Under into a sea of emotion.
Ahead of the game, Melbourne weather played hide and seek before finally clearing on Sunday, with the forecast continuing to improve well into the evening.
India captain Rohit won the toss and asked Pakistan to bat first, possibly in anticipation of a rain break and the DLS system coming into effect later in the match.
