On Sunday, October 24, history was changed at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium when Pakistan defeated India by 10 wickets in the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2021, giving them their first victory over India in tournament history.
When Pakistan toured India for a five-match Test series in 1952, the two teams first came together. The series was won 2-1 by the hosts. Since then, there have been several Test, ODI, and T20I encounters between the two nations.
However, throughout time, as a result of political tensions and numerous wars between the two countries, cricket deteriorated as both sides were instructed to cut all contact with each other in the sport.
India and Pakistan have faced off against each other 200 times at the international level so far, with Pakistan outperforming India in Tests and ODIs.
