“The reason…”- Pakistan batsman Sohaib Maqsood reveals why Pakistan lose to India in World Cup matches

World Cup: A match between India and Pakistan is always full of action, thrill, drama, and excitement. Players from both teams gave their everything to win the match. Even so, it is a wholesome contest between the fans of both nations as well. That is why it becomes more intense.

The prime reason is that both teams don’t play any bilateral series with each other. Due to political issues and conflict, they haven’t played any series together since. However, the only time they face it is in the multi-national tournament or ICC event, like the World Cup, Champions Trophy, and Asia Cup.

But overall, the record of India against Pakistan in World Cup events is incredible. Before the last T20 World Cup, India won all the matches in World Cups between the two. It was Babar Azam and his team that registered the first ever victory against India in the World Cup event.

But the scoreline is still India with 12 wins while Pakistan won only one match. And now the Pakistan batsman, Sohaib Maqsood, has opened up about why Pakistan loses to India in World Cups. He also said that now Pakistan is improving and will give India a tough time. In an interview with Geo News, Sohaib said,

“The reason for the green shirts’ consistent defeat against India in World Cup matches is because the Pakistani team became overexcited. However, in the recent past, our team has started treating Indo-Pak matches normally, and it has improved our performance too.”

India faced their first loss against Pakistan in the 2021 T20 World Cup. That 10-wicket loss led to the early exit of the Men in Blue from the competition. India didn’t qualify for the next round, while Pakistan made it to the semi-finals.
