After winning both their opening matches, India and Pakistan will face each other in the third match with heightened morale at the world’s largest cricket stadium, Narendra Modi Cricket Stadium, Ahmedabad.
In the 13th season of the World Cup hosted by India, the Indian team has done brilliantly by winning its first two matches and sending a message to its opposition teams to be wary for the upcoming matches. India defeated the Kangaroos by 6 wickets in their first match and in the second one-sided match they defeated Afghanistan by 8 wickets. Rohit Sharma’s explosive century against Afghanistan was a historic captain’s innings, breaking many records. On the other hand, Pakistan defeated Netherlands by 81 runs in their first match and Sri Lanka by 6 wickets in their second match. Pakistan wicketkeeper batsman Mohammad Rizwan scored a brilliant century against Sri Lanka.
India has the upper hand when it comes to statistics. Pakistan has not been able to beat India for the last 6 years. In the 2017 Champions Trophy final, Pakistan won the match against India. After this, India defeated Pakistan twice in Asia Cup 2018 and once in World Cup 2019. In the last 10 matches, India has won 7 matches and Pakistan has won 3 matches. So far 7 matches have been played between India and Pakistan in the history of ICC World Cup. Pakistan has faced defeat in all these matches. India’s highest score in World Cup matches between the two teams is 336 runs, while Pakistan’s highest score is 273 runs. It means that Pakistan will have to change their World Cup history if they want to register a win against India.
