It’s time to get ready for the biggest rivalry in cricket to spark again as Team India is all set to take on their arch-rivals Pakistan in the Asia Cup 2020 that is scheduled in Pakistan this time around. With the tournament currently being played in the T20 format, we all know the intensity has been taken to a whole new level but the clash between the two rivals, Pakistan vs India, in Asia Cup 2020 is going to be an extraordinary event in itself. Before we get there, let’s have a look at India vs Pakistan Asia Cup 2020 head to head record.
A Little Controversy Around Asia Cup 2020
The Indian Cricket Board opposed the idea of conducting Asia Cup 2020 in Pakistan from the very first day and the BCCI has claimed that the Indian Cricket team will not participate in this Asia Cup 2020 if it is going to be held in Pakistan. In reply to that, The Pakistan Cricket Board also conveyed the message that the Pakistan Cricket team will not participate in the upcoming T20 world cup 2021 in India. As Team India is the defending champion, this little controversy has already developed an unseen pressure on the players. Cricket lovers are looking forward to some prime performances from the top guns of both teams in Asia Cup 2020. Let’s hope it all goes according to the plan.
India vs Pakistan Asia Cup 2020 Head To Head
Pakistan and India have a very long rivalry in cricket that almost dates back to the independence of the two countries. In Asia Cup, however, the two teams have faced off on 14 occasions with India taking their tally higher in the latest outings. We have all seen the revival of Indian cricket and how they have become ‘The Invincibles’ in cricket. So, that’s pretty understandable that Pakistan haven’t defeated them in the recent Asia Cup matches for a few years now.
According to the India vs Pakistan Asia Cup 2020 head to head stats, the two teams have come up against each other 14 times in the history of the tournament where India have won 8 matches and Pakistan came out victorious on just 5 occasions. One match ended in a tie/no result too. The latest event took place in the T20 format and India won the encounter against Pakistan in the shortest format of the game too.
So, what do you expect when the two teams meet later this year, most probably, in Pakistan? Would you like to see Pakistan coming back on top? Or, is it going to be team India stamping their authority once again? Let’s see what happens. One thing is for sure; it’s going to be a nail-biter!
