In the meantime, before the game starts, please let us know which team has had the upper hand in the last five games when there has been an ODI between India and Pakistan.
Team India defeated Pakistan at the 2019 ODI World Cup and defeated them in back-to-back matches at the 2018 Asian Cup
Team India is again led by Rohit Sharma, who previously beat Pakistan in back-to-back matches at the 2018 Asian Cup. While command of Pakistan will be in the hands of Babar Azam. Babar Azam has previously captained the Pakistan team at T20 Internationals but will be seen taking charge of captaincy for the first time in ODIs against India. At the start of the 2019 World Cup, teams of India and Pakistan faced each other in ODIs, then Team India defeated Pakistan in a rain-interrupted 89-run game, although command of the team was then in the hands of Sarfaraz Ahmed.
Pakistan defeated Team India in the 2017 Champions Trophy final.
Ahead of the 2019 World Cup, India met Pakistan at the 2018 Asian Cup. Then Team India led by Rohit Sharma defeated Pakistan in two consecutive games and in the last game defeated Bangladesh in the final and also secured the title. In this way, the Indian team has been severely outnumbered in the last three ODIs and those games proved to be almost one-sided, the Pakistani team was nowhere to be seen putting up a fight. The Champions Trophy 2017 saw India and Pakistan meet earlier. At that point, the Indian team had won the league game, but when these two teams met in the final, the Pakistani team defeated Team India and captured the title. That said, from 2017 to date, the Indian team has won four games out of the last five games and Pakistan has had to settle for just one win. Keep in mind that we’re only talking about ODIs here, not T20s. This time, the Asia Cup will be held in ODI format, as this year will also host the ODI World Cup, which will start from October 5th.
