Pakistan have lifted the World Cup once, in 1992, under the captaincy of Imran Khan. They have been the runners-up once (1999) and could reach the semifinals four times (1979, 1983, 1987, and 2011).

Talking about the classic rivalry between India and Pakistan, it’s the former who have lost seven of their encounters against India. It’s due to the political tension between the boards of these two countries owing to which there was a delay in announcing the schedule for the World Cup and it was announced just 100 days before the event. Pakistan requested the International Cricket Council to change the venues for three matches which the ICC refrained from doing so.
