Ind Vs Pak Asia Cup History (2023)

Ind Vs Pak Asia Cup, Ind Vs Pak, Ind Vs Pak Asia Cup history, India Vs Pakistan Asia Cup History and other Asia Cup related facts about biggest cricket rivalry India Vs Pakistan.

A match between India and Pakistan is always special, and the fact that the two nations have not played any bilateral cricket since 2012 means that their match is one that is always looked forward to in multi-nation tournaments such as ICC World Cups or even the Asia Cup.

And while India’s record in ICC tournaments against Pakistan is stellar – they’ve only ever lost thrice to Pakistan in ICC-held events – it is a little less comprehensive as far as the Asia Cup is concerned. Of the 16 matches played, India have won 9 whereas Pakistan have won 6, with one match having no result.

With 2023 set to host the Asia Cup yet again, here’s a look at the history of all matches that have been played between the two nations in the tournament. The 1997 Asia Cup game, which had no result, won’t be featured on this list.

Ind Vs Pak Asia Cup 1984

The first-ever Asia Cup saw a clash between the two rival sides in the group stages itself, as both teams were clubbed together in the same group.

India managed only 188-4 in their first innings courtesy a half-century from Surinder Khanna (56) but excellent bowling from Roger Binny (3-33) and Ravi Shastri (3-40) ensured India won the match by 54 runs.
