ICC Cricket World Cup 2015 : India vs Pakistan

Who will win the World Cup match being played between and at Adelaide on 15th February, 2015?

This question will consume over a billion people on planet Earth soon. And the answer will break the collective heart on one nation in the sub-continent.

To say that both countries are cricket crazy nations would be an understatement. India has a population of above one billion while Pakistan has a population of around 180 million and on 15th Feb, a majority of these people will remain glued to their TV sets, radio, internet, mobile devices ....anything that will tell them the latest scores, latest wickets and and latest updates.

Pakistan have lost to India in all of their five encounters in the previous World Cups. India's batting is their strength while Pakistan has a better bowling line-up but past records, strengths and weaknesses have little impact on any India vs Pakistan match where rivalry is intense and passions run high.

India has won the World Cup twice in 1983 and then in 2011. Pakistan has won the World Cup once in Australia in 1992. But in India and Pakistan will not be thinking of the ICC trophy right now. All their thoughts and emotions will be focused on Pak vs India match.

Anyone else following the ICC Cricket World Cup 2015?

Cricket is one of those sports that has never appealed to me in the slightest.

DawnWriter I am a soccer fan, but having working in the Caribbean I know a little bit about Cricket and would surely look at the results.

As you say, the focus will be the early games. NZ's first game is on Saturday. I won't be watching it, but will tune n fr the highlights.
