Political Tension between India and Pakistan

While there are a lot of reasons for the bad blood between India and Pakistan, political influence tops the list. Ever since the partition in 1947, the two nations haven’t seen eye to eye. There is always some kind of tension going on between the two nations.

IND vs PAK: There is no communication between the two neighboring nations in any manner. The same approach has been adopted in the gentleman’s game as well. Since 2013, the two teams haven’t played against each other in any bilateral series.

The Men in Blue lock horns with the Men in Green only during the ICC events or the Asia Cup matches. Pakistan last toured India for a three-match ODI series that ended with them winning by 2-1. The two-match T20I series had resulted in a tie of 1-1.

Since there are no bilateral clashes between India and Pakistan, fans are always eager for their meet in the ICC tournaments and Asia Cup. There is always anticipation and excitement between the fans for the high-voltage clash.

Surreal viewership numbers for India vs Pakistan

Lastly, what makes India vs Pakistan match even more relevant is the crazy viewership numbers. During the 2019 World Cup, the clash between the two nations was adjudged as the most watched game of the event.

A total of 273 million people tuned in to their television screens while 50 million people streamed the game on digital platforms. The same was the case with the T20 World Cup last year as well. The highly anticipated clash had garnered a record viewership of 167 million. 

All being said, India will be eager to take on Pakistan in the Asia Cup. The team will have to avenge their ten-wicket loss against the Men in Green in the T20 World Cup last year.
