India vs Pakistan head-to-head records in T20Is, highest runs, most wickets, and all you need to know
Its time, its finally that time. Its blue vs green, its the mother of all clashes, its India vs Pakistan, after more than two years, and in T20Is after four years. India has been dominant in the warm-up games, beating two of the top sides in England and Australia in the ongoing ICC Mens T20 World Cup 2021 and starting as the favorites.
Skipper Virat Kohli mentioned that clarity of thought is very important in T20Is as one ball can change the game, while Pakistan captain Babar Azam hoped that the form of the batters can help their side move further in the tournament.
Chapter Number 6 of the India-Pakistan rivalry at the T20 World Cup is here. In less than a few hours time, the two Asian giants will lock horns at the Dubai International Stadium to begin their Super 12 campaign. Virat Kohli will marshal the Indian troops while Pakistan will be led by Babar Azam. So far, their head-to-head battle and form guide may suggest that India holds the upper hand but it would be a mistake to take the “Green Army” of Pakistan lightly.
The two sides have met each other 8 times in T20 Internationals and five of them were played in a T20 World Cup campaign.
