With the first ever match played between the two back in 1948 and matches cancelled in the following decades due to conflicts tension had been building up on both sides of the border. With the eventual resume of games in 1978 the rivalry continued with the public of both the countries retaliating harshly to losses and celebrating victories like conquests.
Although Pakistan has more victories in the traditional 5 day test matches, Team India like Undertakers (ex) unbeaten streak, holds a record of never have been beaten by their worthy’s across the border. With 13 victories in 13 face-offs, be it ICC World Cups or World T20 series, Team India has trounced Pakistan each and every time. Dubbing every new match as a ‘Mauka’ for Pakistan to reclaim their status as a worthy opponent Indian fans tease their Pakistani counterparts with twitter trolls, facebook statuses, parodies and youtube parodies alike. In a funny case of ‘let’s give them what they want,’ the Pakistani team has bowed down to India every time never showing even a hint of dominance in the matches.
