When Pakistan beat India at the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2021, it was the first time in World Cup history that Pakistan had ever won over India.
India’s Asia Cup 2022 Super 4 match vs. Pakistan ended in a Pakistani victory by five wickets on Sunday, September 4, at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium.
In 1952, Pakistan traveled to India to compete in a five-match Test series. A 2-1 series victory for the home team. Many Tests, One-Day Internationals, and Twenty-Twenty Internationals have been played between the two nations since then.
As political tensions and wars escalated between the two countries over the years, cricket suffered as both sides were pressured to cut off all relations.
India and Pakistan have played each other 201 times at the international level, with Pakistan holding the edge in their head-to-head matchups against India in both Tests and One-Day Internationals.

- Time for the big game. India and Pakistan will now face off. The Asian heavyweights will square off at the Melbourne Cricket Ground a year after meeting in the T20 World Cup at the Dubai International Stadium. India lost to Pakistan for the first time in the previous tournament in the T20I and ODI World Cup history; this time around, the Men in Blue are better prepared after playing more T20Is this year and looking for a fresh “template.”
- More importantly, the two teams have recently met twice in the Asia Cup, each taking home a victory. Amidst the BCCI-PCB issue, here are the match prediction, toss prediction, powerplay score, and betting odds for what is sure to be a nail-biter of a game.
1: Toss Prediction
India has been successful at the coin toss in the last two of the three Twenty20 Internationals they have played in. However, Pakistan has also won its previous three T20I tosses. However, Pakistan won the toss in their most recent warm-up match, whereas India lost the toss in their first warm-up match and their second warm-up match had to be called off without a toss being made. Prediction: Pakistan will win the coin toss.
While Pakistan won their last T20 World Cup match against India convincingly, they also won their most recent T20I meeting in the Asia Cup 2022. Despite this, India will still be the favorite to win the match. There must be a good reason the Men in Blue are placed first in this system, given they appear to be the superior squad on paper. As a result, I think they will prevail in this match.
India is today’s featured squad because of their superior record against Pakistan in this tournament format. India has beaten Pakistan 7-3 in Twenty20 Internationals, while Pakistan has won 3 times. One match between the two sides ended in a stalemate, which India eventually broke in a Bowl Out.
First-innings scoring in this competition could go above the 139 average for Twenty20 games. Potential powerplay points range from 40 to 55.
