India and Pakistan have raised expectations for Saturday by winning their first two games in the ICC World Cup 2023.

Tens of millions of sports fans in South Asia will certainly have their eyes and ears focused on the much-anticipated match between the two national teams.

Pakistan has never beaten India at the Cricket World Cup. Even when Pakistan won its only title in 1992 it lost to India in Sydney. The trend continued in 1996, 1999, 2003, 2011, 2015 and 2019. The 7-0 scoreline is a huge topic of contention among the rival fans.
