Considering his famous cricket battle against India, a former corner of Pakistan Imran Khan shows how he used to find fear in the eyes of the Indian captain when the two teams would play each other back in the 1980s. In the late 80s and much of the 90s, the two sides were getting ready in neutral places like Sharjah in the United Arab Emirates and in Toronto, Canada with Pakistan enjoying more victories than India.

In fact, this was the dominance of Pakistan so that even though India won in the last ten years, the scoreline stood 73-55 in ODI for the 1992 World Cup winners. For Pakistan, the golden era was determined by people like Imran, Javed Miandad and others when they won 23 times in 52 matches with India only won 10. Trends followed in the 1990s as out of the 48 matches played, Pakistan led 28-18. Also read – Pakistan Uses Surveillance Intended To Track Terrorists to Track Covid-19 Case, Says Imran Khan
“In our days, I used to feel sorry for the Indian team. We used to beat them often, so they were often under pressure (against Pakistan). “When I went to throw with their captain, I would see his face and there would be fear,” Imran said at a public event recently.

The following decade, in the 2000s, the two teams competed with each other, with Pakistan eliminating India 25-23, before India emerged a stronger side between 2010 and 2020, defeating their arch-rivals 10-4 without a draw. This includes three World Cup wins – in 2011, 2015 and 2019 (making their overall World Cup tally 7-0) and a score of 6-1 in the T20Is.
Imran added that during his playing days, Pakistan treated the West Indies as their main rival, although he acknowledged that India was a far superior team now. “Our rival at that time was not India. Now, India has become a far better team than we are. In our time, the West Indies were the greatest team,” he said.
