India vs Pakistan 2011 Live Score World Cup Semi Final
India versus Pakistan in cricket is one of the biggest sporting rivalries in the world. The two countries have had some classic encounters in the past, but Wednesday’s game in Mohali is probably their biggest ever match, given that it’s on Indian soil and a place in the World Cup final is at stake.
In four World Cup clashes (1992, 1996, 1999, and 2003), India has dominated Pakistan, defeating its arch-rival each time. Having watched and reported three of these games, your correspondent can attest that each of these games were won comfortably by India, belying the build-up that suggested a close encounter. There were no last minute surprises or last over/last ball heroics. Each time, the game was won and lost well before the last ball was bowled. But that never precluded tension, grit, resolve and all that goes into an India-Pakistan game.
