no longer quality
Now the shocking statement of Sourav Ganguly, the former captain of the Indian team regarding this match has come to the fore. Speaking to Star Sports, Sourav said, “India have won all the matches between the two traditional rivals. However, due to the noise and atmosphere created regarding the match between the two countries, the match always remains in discussion. But now due to lack of quality, the competition between the two countries has suffered a lot. India and Pakistan play against each other only in international tournaments. Most recently, both the countries clashed during the T20 World Cup in Australia last year.

The former captain of the Indian team said, “Over the years we have seen that India-Pakistan matches become one-sided almost every time. There is a lot of enthusiasm among the people about the India-Pakistan match, but there has not been any level match in the last many years. Indian team is dominating Pakistan. Last year, the teams of India and Pakistan were face to face in the T20 World Cup. The match between the two teams went on till the last ball, in which Team India defeated Pakistan by 4 wickets.
Exciting match between India and Australia
Ganguly further said that India and Australia have generally had good matches in the World Cup. Gradually, there have been such games between the two, which were better than the India-Pakistan match. Ganguly said, ‘India did not play well in the 2021 T20 World Cup, I think the India vs Australia game in the World Cup can be a better game as it has better quality.’
