The match of India Pakistan is going to be the most exciting match of this world cup, at least for Indian and Pakistani viewers. This will be first time when Indian team will be playing a match against Pakistan when Sachin is not in the team. Yes, Sachin has always been there in all matches between India and Pakistan. This proves that Sachin is a crucial factor for India in such matches. But this year, India will be playing without him and this increases the problems for the team.

India - Pakistan Match Stats are as below

Total Matches played - 59(Tests) +126(ODIs)+ 6(T20s)
Won by Pakistan -  12(Tests) +72(ODIs)+ 1(T20s)
Won by India - 9(Tests) +50(ODIs)+ 4(T20s)

It is clear that Pakistan has won more matches than India in the India-Pak rivalry. And this war is going to be tougher due to the absence of Sachin in this World Cup. People are already talking about the unstable situation of Indian team due to its poor performance in recent matches and series. Team India still holds the second rank in the ICC ODI ranking and this is an assuring factor.

The first match will be crucial for both teams if they want to enter the next round of ICC World Cup 2015. The match will also be the most exciting one for the viewers of both countries. I am not going to miss the match. If you are not able to watch the match, you can at least stay tuned with the live score at
