Fans will prioritize team aggressiveness and the caliber of cricket played between these two countries, though.

Pakistan Vs India First encounter

When Pakistan visited India in 1952, the two teams met for the first time. Since then, tests and then limited overs series have been played. However, both sides scheduled tours have been postponed or cancelled owing to political issues on a number of occasions.

Due to two significant conflicts in 1965 and 1971, no cricket was played between the two countries between 1962 and 1977. Additionally, the 1999 Kargil War and the 2008 Mumbai terrorist attacks also ended cricketing relations between the two countries.

Due to the expansion of both countries expatriate populations around the globe. Neutral locations such as the United Arab Emirates and Canada have hosted bilateral and multilateral One Day International (ODI) series involving the two teams. The teams have also faced off during International Cricket Council (ICC) competitions.

Over 800,000 applications for tickets were submitted for the two teams matchup in the 2019 Cricket World Cup, demonstrating the great demand for tickets for games in which the two teams compete against one another at international championships. There were 273 million people that watched the game on television.

Players on both teams frequently experience immense pressure to succeed and strong emotions to failure. Extreme fan reactions to losses in significant games have been observed, with just a small amount of hooliganism.

In addition, by allowing heads of state to exchange visits and cricket fans from one country to go to the other to witness the matches, India-Pakistan matches have provided possibilities for cricket diplomacy as a way to strengthen relations between the two nations.
