From their first meeting in the final match in 1992 until their most recent encounter in Manchester in 2019, India has won all seven of their prior encounters.

As part of the build-up to the two teams meeting for the eighth time in ODI World Cups, the ICC compiled a video clip of the best moments from each of India’s seven previous victories against Pakistan.

It covers some of the most beloved and remembered moments, including as the 1996 fight between Aamer Sohail and Venkatesh Prasad, Virat Kohli’s century in 2015, and the legendary Kuldeep Yadav ball to Babar Azam in 2019.

Here is the nostalgia-evoking video as we inch closer to verse 8 of the India-Pakistan World Cup rivalry:

Team India’s domination also stems from their recent outings against Pakistan in ODIs, with the side winning their last four encounters and eight of their previous 10 meetings.

The two teams enter the contest as the top-ranked sides in the World in ODIs, with India being No.1 and Pakistan following closely behind.

A recap of the previous 7 India-Pakistan ODI World Cup meetings:

Even though Pakistan dominated the 1990s, Team India constantly surpassed their bitter rivals in World Cups. A young Sachin Tendulkar took center stage for the first encounter between the teams, which took place in Sydney during the 1992 tournament.

The Little Master scored a pivotal 54* off 62 deliveries batting in the middle order to propel India to 216/7 in their 49 overs. The total proved sufficient on an arduous batting track as the Men in Blue prevailed by 43 runs. However, the result had no bearing on the remainder of the tournament as Pakistan emerged triumphant to clinch their maiden World Cup title.

In 1996, the sides met with the stakes much higher in the quarter-final, with India posting a mammoth 287/8 in 50 overs in front of a packed house at Bengaluru. The match is remembered for the infamous Aamer Sohail-Venkatesh Prasad incident that cost Pakistan dearly.

Following a sumptuous off-side boundary, Sohail had an altercation with Prasad, resulting in a rush-of-blood moment that saw the Pakistan skipper getting castled on the next delivery. It led to a terminal collapse as Pakistan, from a position of 113/1, fell 39 runs short and bowed out of the World Cup.

The 1999 clash was perhaps the most inconsequential World Cup game between the sides, as India were out of contention for a semi-final spot. Yet, the side conjured enough motivation to defeat Pakistan again in the Super Sixes by 47 runs.

2003 perhaps witnessed the best India-Pakistan World Cup clash in front of a raucous Centurion Crowd on a Super Saturday. The Men in Green, led by a breathtaking century by Saeed Anwar, set India a daunting target of 274.

However, Sachin Tendulkar’s mesmerizing 98 off 75 deliveries, followed by an unbeaten 99-run partnership between Rahul Dravid and Yuvraj Singh, propelled India to a famous six-wicket win.

The sides then met in the 2011 World Cup semi-final in India, with the Men in Blue proving their supremacy with a resounding 29-run win. They would then win the final against Sri Lanka to triumph for a second time in ODI World Cups.

2015 and 2019 saw one-sided affairs, with Team India stamping their authority with 76 and 89-run victories over their arch-rivals in Adelaide and Manchester.

Virat Kohli scored a sensational century in the former, while current skipper Rohit Sharma smashed a match-winning 140 in the 2019 meeting.

MS Dhoni denies Handshakes With RCB Cricketers, Virat Kohli Then Does This: Was MS Dhoni’s match versus Royal Challengers Bengaluru in the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2024 his final one? Certainly, the cricket community hopes that isn’t the case.

Particularly when he struck a six off the first ball of the match’s last over, Dhoni was supposed to finish the game.

However, Yash Dayal of RCB scored on the second delivery to remove the former captain of CSK and turn the tide of the match in his team’s favor.

On social media, a depressing video has surfaced that shows Dhoni skipping the post-match handshakes with RCB players and going back to the dressing room.

When the RCB players finished their celebration and shook hands with the CSK players, Dhoni, who hasn’t been totally fit the whole season, was in front of the line. But after a little period, Dhoni made the decision to head back to the dressing room.

Although it’s unclear if Dhoni and the RCB playing XI shook hands afterwards, the seasoned wicketkeeper batting decided to head back to the dressing room at that particular moment rather than waiting for the players of the other team.

In another video, it can be seen that Virat Kohli went after Dhoni to the dressing room, probably to shake hands with him after missing out on the same during their time on the field.

MS Dhoni to Announce Retirement Soon? Former CSK Cricketer Says 'There is a Reason…'

MS Dhoni to Announce Retirement Soon? Former CSK Cricketer Says ‘There is a Reason…’: Chennai Super Kings’ IPL 2024 campaign comes to a sad end on Saturday as they were defeated by Royal Challengers Bengaluru by an aggregate score of 27 runs.

The topic of discussion ever since the loss and CSK’s elimination from the IPL this year has been whether MS Dhoni would declare his retirement or whether the seasoned wicketkeeper will return for one final game in the IPL 2025.

According to pundit and former CSK batsman Robin Uthappa, Dhoni will return to the Yellow uniform for the next IPL season.

In an interaction with JioCinema, Uthappa said, “I don’t think we have seen the last of MS. He is not someone who takes these things lightly. He will come back roaring for sure,” Uthappa said while speaking on JioCinema.

“Even with the narrative, I have seen him bat only in the last 4 or 5 overs, there is a reason for it. He had a calf injury which they initially thought perhaps was a niggle, but it was a little more grave than that. Because of that, he had to manage himself and often as he does, in international cricket and for CSK, he figured out a way to be useful and contribute to CSK,” the former CSK batter added.

Notably, Dhoni’s 25-run (off 13 balls) innings on Saturday gave CSK a chance to compete against RCB. Ultimately, CSK required 17 runs from the last over in order to go to the playoffs. As he has so often done in the past, MS Dhoni opened the over with a huge six to put rookie Yash Dayal under strain.

But the left-hander bounced back, dismissing Dhoni and adding a dot ball and a single in the next over. Then, CSK needed 10 runs in only two balls, but Yash Dayal’s slower deliveries were too much for a well-conditioned Ravindra Jadeja to handle.
