IND vs PAK Match in World Cup

ODI World Cup 2023: India and Pakistan will once again compete in the ODI World Cup 2023. This year this great match will be played on October 15 at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad. Cricket fans all over the world are waiting for this. Meanwhile, the record so far has been that whenever there has been a clash between India and Pakistan in the ODI World Cup, every time the Indian team has won. This has happened seven times so far. But do you know that the ODI World Cup may have happened in 1975, but the first clash between India and Pakistan was in 1992. These teams have never come face to face before.

India and Pakistan did not compete in the first four World Cups

The first ODI World Cup was played in the year 1975. That year India and Pakistan were placed in separate groups. After this, the World Cup happened again in the year 1979 and in this also the match between India and Pakistan could not be held. Both the teams could not come face to face this time also. The first two World Cups were won by the West Indies, while the third World Cup was played in the year 1983. This time Team India became champion for the first time under Kapil Dev’s captaincy and that too by defeating West Indies. This year also the teams of India and Pakistan were in different groups. After this comes the year 1987, the interesting thing is that even this time there is no conflict between India and Pakistan.

Pakistan won the World Cup title in the year 1992, but was defeated by Team India
In the year 1992, the Pakistani team captures the World Cup title, under the captaincy of Imran Khan. This time for the first time there was a contest between India and Pakistan. Even though Pakistan has won the trophy and became the world champion, but the Pakistani team could not succeed in defeating the Indian team. After this, the World Cup takes place again in the year 1996, this time also Team India beats Pakistan, same thing happens in the year 1999. That is, since 1992, there have been matches between India and Pakistan continuously, sometimes in the league stage and sometimes in the knockouts, but the Pakistani team has never been able to win the match.

After almost four years, there will be a match between India and Pakistan in ODIs.
The last time these two teams came face to face in the year 2019, that time also the Indian team won, although after this in 2021 when both the teams came face to face in the T20 World Cup, Team India had to face a crushing defeat by 10 wickets. But only a year later in 2022, the Indian team took its revenge by defeating Pakistan. Now after four years, on October 15, 2023, the teams of India and Pakistan will be face to face. It has to be seen how their performance is this time.
