The Melbourne Cricket Ground had a festive feel with fans from both countries wearing replica jerseys, colourful headgear and sounding hooters as they began trooping in.

This was the third time in 2022 that India was up against Pakistan and the excitement could not be bigger for the fans of both teams.

The cherry on the top is that the MCG can accommodate 100,000 spectators.

The fans arrived early in Melbourne in numbers and the Indian and Pakistan flags could be seen soaring high under the blue Melbourne sky.
