The cricketing clash between India and Pakistan is renowned as one of the fiercest battles on the field. With no bilateral series in over a decade due to political tensions, their meetings in international or continental competitions are eagerly anticipated events.
The most recent encounter between these two teams took place during the Cricket World Cup 2023, where India continued their unbeaten streak against Pakistan in the tournament.
“Pakistan has dominated India a lot of times. Currently, if you see the level of both teams, India is far superior to Pakistan in all three formats. If Pakistan defeats India it’s an upset, if India defeats Pakistan, it’s very much given,” Gambhir said on Star Sports.
India remained undefeated throughout the Cricket World Cup 2023 until they faced a defeat against Australia in the final. Gambhir highlighted the rising significance of the India-Australia rivalry, stating that it now outweighs the traditional India-Pakistan cricket rivalry.
“India and Australia, from a cricketing point of view, is a top rivalry. If you ask a cricket fan what is the actual rivalry, they will also say India and Australia,” Gambhir added.
