Highest scoring T20 games between Pakistan and India

The two biggest South Asian rivals are set to lock horns with each other in New York today in the 2024 T20 World Cup. The fortunes of the two teams are wildly different at the moment, with Pakistan massively struggling for form. But the Green Shirts are expected to bring their best game against India and so upset is also not very unlikely. 

Below we look at some of the highest scoring T20 matches between the two teams. 

1- India’s 192 runs in Ahmedabad in 2012

India set up a mammoth 192 runs on the board after being invited to bat first at the Sardar Patel Stadium in Ahmedabad in December 2012. Yuvraj Singh played a blistering 72-run knock with the help of seven sixes and four boundaries, while there were also valuable contributions from MS Dhoni, Virat Kohli and Ajinkya Rahane. 

In response, Pakistan looked on course for a brilliant run chase after all the first four batters played impressively, especially Mohammad Hafeez who struck a quick-fire half-century. But the captain fell victim to Ashok Dinda and the team ultimately fell short by 11 runs. 

2- Pakistan chase down 182 target in 2022 Asia Cup

The two biggest cricket rivals played out a thrilling contest in the Super 4 match of the 2022 Asia Cup. Batting first, India posted a total of 181 runs with Kohli hitting a fifty after an aggressive start from Rohit Sharma and KL Rahul. 

The Green Shirts looked in trouble after captain Babar Azam departed early, but Mohammed Rizwan defied all the tricks of the Indian bowlers to play a 71-run knock. With Mohammad Nawaz also chipping in with 42, Pakistan chased down the total in the final over with five wickets in hand. 

3- Kohli masterclass help India chase 160 target in 2022 World Cup 

Pakistan looked in danger of a low score after being invited to bat first in the 2022 T20 World Cup game in Melbourne as the two openers fell prey to Arshdeep Singh early. But both Shan Masood and Iftikhar Ahmed completed half-centuries to help the team to a total of 159. 

In reply, India also lost four quick wickets to shift the momentum in favour of the Green Shirts. But Virat Kohli was in the form of his life as he hit a superb 82-run knock with the help of six boundaries and four sixes. India ultimately won on the last ball in a nail-biting encounter.
