On the other side is Micky Arthur who wants his players to enjoy it. "I saw some stats, you know, which said I think the soccer World Cup final attracted 1.6 billion viewers. Tomorrow we're likely to get 1.5 billion. It doesn't get bigger than that. It doesn't get more exciting. I'm telling our players in the dressing room, you could be a hero tomorrow. Your careers are going to be defined by a moment in the game. You do something incredible tomorrow, you'll be remembered forever," he's said and added, "You're the class of 2019. What are they going to say about you in history?"

Arthur also wants his pacers, particularly Mohammad Amir (the leading wicket-taker so far), to rattle India's top order. That could create a little havoc, he believes. It's an observation that will probably be agreed with even in the opposition's dressing room. It is exactly what happened when these two teams last met in an ICC tournament, the Champions Trophy final of 2017, a pivotal game for the players and teams in many ways.

The key players from that game have all undergone many changes. Amir and Jasprit Bumrah (after that no-ball) have traversed diversely different paths in the last two years, one is finally delivering on the promise this World Cup and the other comes with the reputation of being amongst the world's best. Fakhar Zaman and Hardik Pandya, have had not too dissimilar trajectories as the other pair, but both have the reputation of being dangerous white-ball batsmen. That final also played a key part in changing India's spin make-up but Mohammad Hafeez, along with Shoaib Malik, are still around, threatening to take on this new challenge as well.

The line-ups of the two teams are not too different from that final, many will remember how the aftermath was. Pakistan got a big bugbear off their back, and celebrated with a dig at the advertisers. Bumrah has finally shaken off taunts of that no-ball as well. Tomorrow there's a chance that it can all happen again to any player from either side. Both Kohli's and Arthur's words have merit, and drawbacks. But it could prove useful to many of them.

Team news:

India: Virat Kohli hinted that they would think about including an extra pacer if the game is shortened by rain. But they're unlikely to make any big changes, otherwise.

Probable XI: Rohit Sharma, KL Rahul, Virat Kohli, Vijay Shankar, MS Dhoni, Kedar Jadhav, Hardik Pandya, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Kuldeep Yadav, Yuzvendra Chahal, Jasprit Bumrah

Pakistan: Micky Arthur was concerned about how the pitch looked ("a little brown"). Spin should play a bigger part than it did in their previous outing against Australia.

Probable XI: Imam ul Haq, Fakhar Zaman, Babar Azam, Mohammad Hafeez, Sarfraz Ahmed, Shoaib Malik, Asif Ali, Hasan Ali, Wahab Riaz, Shadab Khan, Mohammad Amir


India (From): Rohit Sharma, Lokesh Rahul, Virat Kohli(c), Vijay Shankar, MS Dhoni(w), Kedar Jadhav, Hardik Pandya, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Kuldeep Yadav, Yuzvendra Chahal, Jasprit Bumrah, Ravindra Jadeja, Dinesh Karthik, Mohammed Shami

Pakistan (From): Imam-ul-Haq, Fakhar Zaman, Babar Azam, Mohammad Hafeez, Sarfaraz Ahmed(w/c), Shoaib Malik, Asif Ali, Hasan Ali, Wahab Riaz, Mohammad Amir, Shaheen Afridi, Shadab Khan, Imad Wasim, Haris Sohail, Mohammad Hasnain
