Arch-rivals India and Pakistan were today placed in the same group for next year’s ICC World Twenty20, setting the stage for a high-voltage clash between the two sides on March 19 in Dharamsala.

The ICC today unveiled the groups and schedule of the event, which will be staged across eight venues in India from March 8 to April 3.

The two countries are currently undecided on whether to engage in a bilateral series later this month owing to political tensions.

A total of 58 matches, including 35 men’s and 23 women’s games, will be played in the 27-day tournament in Bengaluru, Chennai, Dharamsala, Kolkata, Mohali, Mumbai, Nagpur and New Delhi.
