The match between Pakistan Vs India always brings so much excitement in the Cricket world. Since the colored uniform had been introduced and the white ball for ODI matches initiated, the 92’ Champions never won a single match in the Cricket World Cup history against arch rival India.
Recently we’ve seen an Indian ad about the game between the old rivals Pakistan and India which taunts that Pakistan will never change the history over India in Cricket World Cup. The advertisement shows, from 1992 to 2011, a young Pakistani boy bought many firecrackers to celebrate victory over arch-rival India in the mega event, but unfortunately he was not allowed to celebrate with firecrackers because of losing all their WC matches.
It will be significant to know that out of 126 matches, Pakistan has won 72, while India could win only 52.
Before the recent campaign of world cup 2015, India prepared their team well by playing tri-series with England, Australia and the defending champions India. In the tri-series, Indian team has given its best performance but unfortunately none of the match was won by India.
On the other hand, Pakistan has boosted their confidence again by winning both of their warm-up matches against England and Bangladesh. And now, Pakistan has a golden chance to defeat India in the first ODI of WC 2015 on Sunday.
Pakistan’s batting had been far from convincing in their win over Bangladesh on Monday and they will now head to Adelaide to face reigning champions India in their tournament opener on Sunday with renewed confidence.
We wish GOOD LUCK to our National Heroes !
