In round 1, Eight teams will fight in the Qualifiers, and the top four will join Group 1 and 2 in the Super 12 stage. India and Pakistan are pooled in 2 of the Super 12s alongside New Zealand and Afghanistan. The selection of groups was based on T20 team rankings.

The tournament’s most awaited match between India and Pakistan starts on Sunday, October 24, in Dubai. India meets Pakistan after two years, and the contest guarantees an adrenaline rush. Ahead of the most anticipated match, let’s look at the exciting records in the epic encounters.
Highest individual score in T20 WC
India’s run-machine Virat Kohli scored 78 against Pakistan in the 2012 T20I World Cup at Colombo, the highest individual score from both nations. Virat Kohli remains unbeaten in all three encounters and is yet to be dismissed by Pakistan. This clearly shows the dominance that the Indian skipper has over Pakistan. If Pakistan has to rewrite history, they must devise a plan to get Kohli out.
Highest team score in T20 WC
India’s 157 and Pakistan’s 152 are the highest scores.
Pakistan has never tasted success against India in both ODI and T20. India won all five encounters in the T20 world cup and never allowed Pakistan to dominate them. The biggest challenge for Babar Azam led-Pakistan is to stop India’s winning spree against them.
Lowest team score in T20 WC
Pakistan scored 118 in the 2016 world cup, their lowest score, and India successfully chased it in Eden Gardens, Kolkata.
Best bowling figures in T20 WC
Pakistan pacer Mohammad Asif holds the record for best bowling. His 4/18 against India in the inaugural 2007 T20 World Cup at Durban is the best bowling figure. Pakistan is known for producing some world-class bowlers in the cricket world. The legends of the pace attack, Imran Khan, Wasim Akram, Waqar Younis, Shoaib Akhtar, Asif and Amir, have glorified Pakistan cricket.
Most runs in T20 WC
Indian captain Virat Kohli holds the record for scoring the most runs in India-Pakistan matches in the T20 world cup. Kohli has scored 254 runs and played a crucial role in India, winning all three games against Pakistan.
Highest average in T20 WC
Virat Kohli’s 84.67 is the highest average. Interestingly, this is Virat’s final tournament as Indian captain as he recently announced to step down from the leadership position after the T20 world cup.
Most Wickets in T20 WC
Umar Gul picked 11 wickets, the most by any bowler between the two teams. Although Pakistan boasts top bowlers in their squad, none of them has succeeded in restricting India.
Best economy rate
Mohammad Amir’s 4.14 is the best economy rate by any bowler. Amir has bowled one of the best spells in his life in the 2016 world cup. Although Amir has troubled the Indian batters, 118 on the board wasn’t just enough to defend.
