The IND vs PAK encounter at the ICC T20 World Cup 2024 will be played in New York on June 9.

The fiercest rivalry in cricket will resume on June 9 in New York as IND vs PAK is set to take centerstage this Sunday in the ICC T20 World Cup 2024. They are placed in Group B.

This high-voltage encounter will be hosted at the Nassau County International Cricket Stadium, which has come under the scanner for its pitch, that has been termed dangerous for the batters by fans and experts.

According to a report in the BCC, the Indian team management, headed by Rohit Sharma and Rahul Dravid, even expressed unhappiness with the surface as Rohit and Rishabh Pant got hit on their arms during their match against Ireland.

The ICC posted a statement acknowledging the difficulty faced by the batters and assured everyone that the ground staff would look to “remedy the situation and deliver the best possible surfaces for the remaining matches.”

This is the second match for both teams in the ongoing competition. They have had opposite results in their opening game of the tournament. While India thumped Ireland by 8 wickets in New York, Pakistan lost to the USA in Dallas in the Super Over after the regular game finished in a tie.

IND vs PAK head to head record in T20 World Cup: India (6) – Pakistan (1)

India and Pakistan have faced off in seven games in the men’s T20 World Cup. Six of those games were won by India, including a bowl-out in the 2007 T20 World Cup. Pakistan have defeated India only once in T20 World Cup, which came in 2021 in Dubai.

The last meeting of the two arch-rivals was in the T20 World Cup 2022 at the MCG, where Virat Kohli played arguably the greatest T20I knock by an Indian and hit one of the most famous sixes in the history of the game.

India and Pakistan have met only once in a knockout game in the T20 World Cup – in the final of the 2007 edition when MS Dhoni’s side defeated Pakistan by five runs in Johannesburg.

Four of those knocks have been half-centuries. Kohli is way ahead of the second-best Indian batter against Pakistan in the competition.
