But when Rohit Sharma’s Men in Blue take on Babar Azam’s team in less than a week, history will be on India’s side. While last year’s loss was unbearable, it was the first ever for India.
Between 2007 and 2021, India and Pakistan have met six times. Only in 2009 and 2010 did they not get a chance to meet. In 2007, we met twice and one of those matches was the final.
India have won five times while Pakistan just once. In the first-ever game, a tie was settled via bowl-out and India won 3-0. India also became the 1st ever T20 World Champions in 2007 by beating Pakistan in the final. All games since then have not been exciting.
This will be the 7th time they face off. Will India resume the natural order of things? Or will Pakistan pull it off once more? Time will tell.
