Before we enjoy the upcoming India vs Pakistan T20 World Cup 2021 fixture, let us have a look at some of the iconic moments of India vs Pakistan in World Cups over the years-
 

Ind Vs Pak 2003 World Cup - Sachin Tendulkar’s Masterclass


In Ind vs Pak 2003 World Cup, India started with one of the best opening pairs in ODI - Sachin Tendulkar and Virender Sehwag. Chasing a challenging score of 276, the duo added 53 runs on the board in only five overs. But soon, Sehwag fell and soon after Sourav Ganguly fell on the next ball, turning the situation in Ind vs Pak head to head for team India. India’s hope now depended on Sachin Tendulkar, who, despite losing his fiddles one after another, remained calm on the cricket pitch. He maintained a steady strike rate of over 130 and scored 98 runs off 75 balls, with 12 fours and a six. The Master Blaster received the ‘Man Of The Match’ award in Ind vs Pak 2003 World Cup for his knock. It is one of the three MOM awards he has received in Ind vs Pak World Cups.
 

India Vs Pakistan 1996 World Cup - Venkatesh Prasad Vs Aamer Sohail

 

The dismissal ball thrown by Venkatesh Prasad against Aamer Sohail in India vs Pakistan 1996 World Cup is probably remembered as one of the most intense on-pitch moments between the two teams. It was the quarter-final of Ind vs Pak head to head at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru and India opted to bat first upon winning the toss. The team amassed 287 runs in their 50 overs. In opposition, Pakistan too got off to a great start until Javagal Srinath hauled Saeed Anwar. Soon after, Aamer Sohail lost his wicket. This resulted in Pakistan losing India vs Pakistan 1996 World Cup. After Anwars’ departure, Sohail went on to score his half-century with a four. He then looked at bowler Prasad and indicated that he will hit another boundary in the same area on the next ball. But Prasad pitched one outside the off-stump, which Sohail completely missed, and saw his wickets flying away in this Ind vs Pak World Cup. The right-arm bowler gave an angry farewell to the batsman and mouthed verbal abuses as he walked back.
 

Ind vs Pak 2015 World Cup - Virat Kohli’s Century

 

Virat Kohli became the first Indian batsman to score a century in India vs Pakistan in World Cups. He achieved this incredible feat in Ind vs Pak 2015 World Cup at the Adelaide Oval. Playing at number 3, Kohli scored 107 in 126 balls, giving team India a 76-run win. The ‘Men In Blue’ amassed 300 runs on the board and hauled out the opposition for 224 in 47 overs in this Ind vs Pak World Cup.
 

Ind Vs Pak 2011 World Cup - Pakistan Fans And ICC Trolled

Leading the team, MS Dhoni chose to bat first in this Ind vs Pak 2011 World Cup. It was an important semi-final and a must-win for both teams. Sachin Tendulkar, once again, showcased his expertise as a run-scorer, scoring 85 runs in the match and the only batsman to cross the 50-run mark from team India in this Ind vs Pak World Cup. Yuvraj Singh too presented a great performance in this match. However, the left-handed batsman was hauled out by Wahab Riaz on his very first delivery. It was a major breakthrough for the opposition to knock out Singh when he was at his best. ICC shared a video of Singh's dismissal in this Ind vs Pak head to head, but Indian fans took the opportunity to troll the council as well as Pakistani fans in the comments section as it was India who won the match by hauling out Pakistan for 231 runs.
 

Ind Vs Pak 1992 World Cup - Javed Miandad’s LOL Behaviour

 

When the first Ind vs Pak World Cup took place in 1992, one of the most awkward cricket antics was on display. Javed Miandad was frustrated with his side struggling to chase a meagre total of 217 runs. Sachin Tendulkar hit the batsman on the pads in the 25th over. In the next ball, he moved away before Tendulkar could pitch and engaged in a heated conversation with wicket-keeper Kiran More. Further, he tried to steal a single off Tendulkar but ran back to his crease after the ball was delivered quickly to the keeper. Frustrated with this, Miandad hilariously jumped thrice in the air to express his feelings. It was one of the most hilarious moments of India vs Pakistan in World Cups.
