We have learned our lesson from Ranbir Kapoor and we are set for the Sunday Blockbuster
The most awaited game in the cricketing universe in four years has finally come and we will witness the cricket madness tomorrow as Indian team takes on Pakistan at Emirates Old Trafford, Manchester in the 22nd match of ICC Cricket World Cup.
A recent advertisement where Ranbir Kapoor is late in buying his soft drinks during the match has opened our eyes and we have filled our stocks. All the Sunday work will wait a week more because we are not leaving the television set for a second.
Both the teams are batting loaded buy India has an edge over Pakistan because of Wrist Spinner.
Both the teams are batting loaded and we could expect a good battle on the ground. India looks better on paper and the wrist- spin option makes them the favorites. This is the first time when both the teams are equally equipped with fast bowlers. Pakistan always had an edge over Indian team in fast-bowling but with world number 1 bowler Jasprit Bumrah balances the equation here.
India might not have their ‘Gabbar’ in the team but still, they have classy KL Rahul who takes charge of the opening slot.
Ahead of the greatest rivalry in the cricketing world let’s look at the numbers of the past:
India has player Pakistan 6 times in the World Cup and they have emerged victorious every time they went against the neighboring country. In overall ODI cricket, Pakistan has an edge over Men in Blue. In 131 ODI meetings, India has won 54 while Pakistan has won 73.
However, in recent past India has been more dominant side whenever they have played in the ICC tournaments. India has overpowered Pakistan thrice in four meetings since last World Cup. In the last decade, Indian has been a better side than Pakistan and because we haven’t played any bilateral series with them in recent years the record hasn’t become better in overall ODI cricket.
