What makes it happen in India vs Pakistan?
Both teams played 11 times against each other in the World Cup. 6 times in ODI World Cup and 5 times in T20 World Cup. Pakistani team lost all 11 matches of the World Cup against India. This has also happened in the past that a T20 World Cup match got to draw in the year 2007 between Pak vs Ind, yet India won in the bowled out system. This was really the shameful performance by the Pakistani team. Pakistani bowlers couldn’t hit the wicket with the ball where there was no batsman standing in front of the wicket. Let’s have a look
Is this the pressure that causes it?
In the World Cup 2007 final it was between Pakistan and India. India scored 157 batting 1st. Pakistani team chasing a comparatively easy target seemed disturbed from the beginning and lost their important wickets too quickly. Yes, I would say. It is the pressure that causes this thing. Out of the 6 matches played between India vs Pakistan in World Cup ODI all the time team batted 1st which has won the toss. 1 out of 6 times the Pakitan team won the toss and they have elected to bat 1st in World Cup 2003.
5 Times India team won the toss in ODI world cup and all those 5 times India team decided to bat 1st.
Team India came to a very strong position when Misbah Ul Haq came to bat for the Pakistani team. Misbah Ul Haq Completely dominated the Indan bowlers and hit strokes all around the ground. His strength, his power and hitting ability was so classy that the Pakistani Nation has got firm to believe that this time Pak vs Ind will go in favor of Pakitan. Pakistan will become a 1st T20 world champion by beating India.
Pakistani team just required a big hit from Misbah Ul Haq who was batting at a score of 43 runs from 58 balls. The bowler was also very nervous and he had bowled 2 wide balls in the over. Misbah was hitting the ball with such power that if he would have connected it would definitely be the six. What came to the heart and mind of Misbah that he decided to play a scoop shot and caught by MS Dhoni as a result of miss hit. India once again defeats Pakistan in an encounter India vs Pakistan.
