The 3rd match of the ICL 20s World Series Cricket Tournament, between India XI and Pakistan XI, will be played on 11th April, at the Lal Bahadur Stadium.

The India XI side will be captained by R Sathish, and will have Abbas Ali, Love Ablish, Abu Nechim, Stuart Binny, A T Rayudu, Rohan Gavaskar, Abhishek Jhunjhunwala, Ibrahim Khaleel (wk), Thiru Kumaran, Ali Murtaza, Raviraj Patil, S Saravanan, TP Singh, TP Sudhindhra, Jamaluddin Syed Mohammed and G Vignesh making up the rest of the squad.
The match will be played under the floodlights, with 20 overs per side. Entry to the matches is by tickets of Rs. 100 and Rs. 300 per head, available at specific Music World outlets and Walden (Begumpet).

It is promoted by Zee Telefilms (part of Subash Chandra's Essel group), and was set up with a Rs. 100 crore (Rs. 1 billion) corpus. The inaugural season of the ICL was in November 2007.
