India vs. Pakistan is not just a match. It is an emotion for millions of cricket fans across the world. The two are not only among the biggest cricketing nations in Asia but in the whole world. India and Pakistan have both won the Asia Cup, ODI World Cup, T20 World Cup and Champions Trophy. With so many accolades to their names and the emotions attached to this contest, there is always a sight to behold whenever there is an India vs. Pakistan head-to-head.


India and Pakistan only meet at multi-nation tournaments such as the World Cup and Asia Cup due to the political tensions between the two nations. The two teams will compete in the same group in the group stage alongside Nepal in the Asia Cup 2023. If both teams finish top two in the group, fans will be able to see India vs. Pakistan once again in the Super Four and then possibly the Asia Cup 2023 finals.


India has dominated Pakistan in World Cup matches, but the India vs. Pakistan head-to-head record in the Asia Cup is slightly even. Here’s a detailed look at their head-to-head stats.

Both the teams have finished as runner-up of the tournament on three separate occasions.
