T20 World Cup 2021: India vs Pakistan Head to Head Records, Team, Individual Stats

T20 WC 2021: India vs Pakistan records

Sydney, October 20: India and Pakistan will add another chapter to their age=old rivalry on Sunday (October 24] when they face each other in a Super 12 match of the ICC T20 World Cup 2021.

Due to the simmering political situation between the two nations, bilateral cricket has become non=existent for well over a decade now, while India and Pakistan meet each other only in the ICC tournaments.

The last meeting between them was in the ICC 50 over World Cup two years ago, and India won the match in convincing fashion with Rohit Sharma cracking a century. This time too there are calls from several quarters to boycott the WC match at Dubai because of the skirmishes in Jammu and Kashmir between terrorists and security forces but they will not have much impact on the schedule.

Here are some nuggets of records between the two teams such as head to head, format=wise records and individual milestones.

He also clobbered Abdul Qadir for 4 sixes.

India and Pakistan created history when they became the first two teams to reach the final of the inaugural ICC T20 World Cup in South Africa in 2007. They were also featured in the first=ever bowl-out during a group stage match in Durban which India won after Sehwag bowled the over for India. In the final, Sreesanth latched on to a scoop by Misbah Ul Haq to give India the title.

Best bowling figures: Pakistan's Mohammad Asif grabbed 4/18 in the 2007 T20 World Cup at Durban. But the match ended in favour of India after the result was decided via a bowl out, a rule that was conceived for the mega event in which a player each from both sides will aim at stumps. The ploy of India to hand the ball to Sehwag worked wonders as he made more hits on the stumps with his accurate off=spin.
