    We hear a lot of debates about which is a better team historically and Pak fans found a new voice it seems post CT win. So lets look into it objectively about which team played better in crucial games and which set of fans has more heart-breaks.

    *Crucial Games = Games with significant fan interest and with major hype (ICC events, historic bilateral series etc)



    1) B&H World Series Final MCG - Perhaps the first major Ind-Pak game on a world level and Pak started as favourite.
    Result - Ind won by 8 wickets
    Heartbreak count - Pak fans 1 : Ind fans 0


    2) Final Austral-Asia 1986 Sharjah - Miandad last ball six broken the heart of million Indians
    Result - Pak won by 1 wicket
    Heartbreak count - Pak fans 1 : Ind fans 1



    3) 1992 World Cup match Sydney - First World cup game between arch rivals with Pak starting as a huge favourites
    Result - Ind won by 43 runs
    Heartbreak count - Pak fans 2 : Ind fans 1



    4) 1996 World Cup match Bangalore - Massive quarter final game and a curfew like situation in both countries, such was the inuterest.
    Result - Ind won by 39 runs
    Heartbreak count - Pak fans 3 : Ind fans 1



    5) 1998 Independence Cup Final Dhaka - India thanks to brilliance of Ganguly chased down a massive target (314) posted by Pak. A great game in all accounts and much hyped up back then. That Hrishikesh Kanitkar sweep of Saqlain Mushtaq when 3 runs need off 2 balls probably still haunts few old Pak fans
    Result - Ind won by 3 wickets
    Heartbreak count - Pak fans 4 : Ind fans 1



    6) Pak historic tour of India 1999 - A much awaited series almost after a decade and many termed it as a war with Bat & Ball. Pak gave a massive heart break to Indians on that Chennai test with a close victory after Sachin's heroics. India reversed the result in the next game at Kotla with a 10fer for Kumble.
    Result - Drawn series 1-1
    Heartbreak count - Pak fans 4 : Ind fans 1



    7) Asian Test Championship 1999 - Eden gardens hosted the Asian Test championship game which was like an extension of the previous series. Shoaib Akhtar ripped us apart and silenced the massive eden crowd.
    Result -- Pak won by 46 runs
    Heartbreak count - Pak fans 4 : Ind fans 2



    8) 1999 World Cup match Manchester - A less significant world cup game because Ind by then was already out of the tournament. Pak started as massive favorite being one of the tournament favorites.
    Result - Ind won by 47 runs
    Heartbreak count - Pak fans 5 : Ind fans 2



    9) 2003 World Cup match Centurion - A massive game post Kargil War and emotions were high on both side of the border. India started as favorites and Sachin justified it with thrashing Pak bowlers all around.
    Result - Ind won by 6 wickets
    Heartbreak count - Pak fans 6 : Ind fans 2



    10) 2004 Champions Trophy Birmingham - A less hyped up game in all accounts with many key Indian players were missing. India started as a massive favorite after the thrashing they handed to Pak in 2003 WC. But Pak steals the show.
    Result - Pak won by 3 wickets
    Heartbreak count - Pak fans 6 : Ind fans 3



    11) Aman ki Asha Series 2004 - After much drama in Parliament, Vajpayee ji agreed on Indian team touring Pak first time since 1989. It was an historic series in all accounts. Perhaps not a bat-ball war series like 99 but more of beginning of a new friendship series. Sehwag manhandled them in Multan and Saqlain Mushatq never played cricket since that onslaught.
    Result - Ind won both ODI and Test series
    Heartbreak count - Pak fans 7 : Ind fans 3



    12) Platinum Jubilee Match Eden Gardens 2004 - Historic game at gardens and Salman Butt steals the show.
    Result - Pak won by 6 wickets
    Heartbreak count - Pak fans 7 : Ind fans 4



    13) Pak tour of India 2005 - Return series of Aman ki Asha and it was a mix bag really. The test series was drawn and Pak won the ODI series 4-2. It will be remembered as the debut series of MS Dhoni and Afridi's assault at Kanpur
    Result - Test series was Drawn and Pak won ODI series 4-2
    Heartbreak count - Pak fans 7 : Ind fans 5



    14) Ind tour of Pak 2006 - First two tests were drawn thanks to flat pancake tracks but Pak won the final test. India won the ODI series handsomely 4-1 with young Dhoni and Yuvi thrashing Pak bowlers all around Karachi. This series will be counted as more heart-break for Pak fans since the way they lost the ODI series and that too at home.
    Result - Pak won the test series 1-0 and Ind won ODI series 4-1
    Heartbreak count - Pak fans 8 : Ind fans 5



    15) T20 WC league game 2007 Durban - Pak send a full strength team for the tournament but India rested all its senior players. BCCI back then didn't too T20 seriously and a young Dhoni led the side. The game was tied but a historical bowl out is still remembered today. Whats more funny is, bowlers like Gul and Afridi missed the stumps but Sehwag & Uthhapa hits the bulls eye.
    Result - Ind won by bowl out (3-0)
    Heartbreak count - Pak fans 9 : Ind fans 5



    16) T20 WC Final 2007 J'burg - First Indo-Pak final at global stage since 1985 world series. Misbah scoops and rest is history.

    Heartbreak count - Pak fans 12 : Ind fans 6



    20) World Cup 2011 Mohali - Perhaps the most hyped world cup game ever with winner goes to the final at stake. Sehwags initial blitz and Misbah's Tuk Tuk ensured India got a birth in final. This was India's 5th straight victory over Pak in world cup and their fans still feel pain of this loss.
    Result - Ind won by 29 runs
    Heartbreak count - Pak fans 13 : Ind fans 6



    21) Asia Cup 2012 Dhaka - This game will be remembered for many things - Sachin's last ODI, brilliant century by Hafeez and Jamshed but it was Virat Kohli's innings which made Pak players speechless. India chased down 330 with 3overs to spare thanks to 183 runs knock of Kohli.
    Result - Ind won by 6 wickets
    Heartbreak count - Pak fans 14 : Ind fans 6

    Heartbreak count - Pak fans 16 : Ind fans 8



    26) T20 WC 2014 Dhaka - Within a month of those Afridi sixes, India meet Pak again in Dhaka but this time with their permanent captain MS Dhoni leading. As usual, MS Dhoni led India beat Pak again.

    29) T20 WC 2016 Kolkata - The shifting of the match to the Gardens from Dharamsala gave Pak a great hope as Eden gardens is a lucky venue for them historically. However, Kohli steals the show again with a scintillating half century. In-fact in 3 T20 WC games, Pak never manage to got him out

    Heartbreak count - Pak fans 20 : Ind fans 8



    30) Champions Trophy league game 2017 Birmingham - A very hyped game and exceptional batting by Kohli, Rohit and Dhawan saw India beating Pak again and continuing their domination

    LOL when youve lost more test matches than Pakistan
    When youve lost more ODIs than Pakistan

    so you gotta create/manufacture random threads/write up dissertations to try and skew numbers

    Threads like these not only highlight how we've obviously got a better overall record but also highlights at how insecure certain folks/countries are.

    PS: All Pakistan-india matches are crucial...so...

    Lol how did I skew numbers? I have not missed a single crucial game of past 3 decade (since 1985). If I wanted to skew numbers I would have just highlighted the world cups? But my post is fair and posted all games, including the ones that Pak has won.
