Its time for yet another ICC Cricket world cup. A world cup that’s guaranteed to deliver some serious action for all the cricketing lovers who are visiting Australia and New Zealand this year and for all those who watch it on TV and the internet. When I talk about action, the first game that comes in to my mind is the India Vs Pakistan match. Now, if you are not an Indian national or a Pakistani national, I’m telling you – that’s a deep deep rivalry!
Both teams are preparing well for this world cup and both teams have their own advantages and disadvantages. Looking at the numbers, India has never, ever, lost a worldcup match to their arch-rivals. Although numerically India might have a huge advantage but those numbers won’t really matter in a fresh world cup game.
Pakistan on the other hand are so eager to upset India in the very early stages of the big league. After all they are crowned champions the last time ICC World Cup was held in Australia and New Zealand. It will surely be a great motivational factor for the rest of the world cup if they can find some inspiration and raise their caliber to get their first ever world cup victory against India. Although its very early to say, the win against India may give Pakistan enough confidence that can take them to the Melbourne Cricket Ground for the big day, the big match, the big final on 29th March 2015.
Both Indian and Pakistan cricket boards have declared their final World Cup Squads for the ICC World Cup 2015. Here is how the squads look like.
