In the history of ICC T20 World Cup between India and Pakistan, so far 5 matches have been played and only 2 batsmen have scored 100 or more runs.
The first match of the Indian team in the T20 World Cup is against Pakistan. In Group-2 of the Super-12 round, both the teams will play their first match against each other. From the very first T20 World Cup in 2007 till now, 5 matches have been played between India and Pakistan and every time the Indian team has won. On the other hand, if we talk about scoring the most runs in these matches, then the current captain of Team India, Virat Kohli is at the top. However, apart from Kohli, there is only one other Indian batsman in the top 5 list.
Virat Kohli has the most runs in the India-Pakistan T20 World Cup. Kohli has scored 169 runs in three matches between 2012 and 2016. The special thing is that Kohli has not been dismissed even once during this period. He has scored two half-centuries in these 3 innings and has a strike rate of 130. All three times, while chasing the target, Kohli gave victory to Team India.
Shoaib Malik is at number two after Virat Kohli in terms of highest run scorer in India-Pakistan T20 World Cup matches. The veteran Pakistani all-rounder played all five matches from 2007 to 2016, but could not score many runs. Only 100 runs came off Malik’s bat in 5 innings, in which his strike rate is only 107.
At number three is former Pakistani captain Misbah-ul-Haq, who played only 2 matches against India. Both these matches were played in the first World Cup in 2007, in which he tied the match by scoring a half-century in the group stage match, while almost snatching the title from India in the final. In 2 innings, Misbah scored 96 runs at a strike rate of 131.
Former Pakistan wicket-keeper batsman Umar Akmal is at number four in this list. Umar played 3 consecutive matches between 2012 and 2016, but only 76 runs came off his bat. His strike rate was 118, but he could not score a single half-century.
Former Indian opener Gautam Gambhir is only the second Indian in the top 5 batsmen. Gambhir faced Pakistan in 3 matches between 2007 and 2012, but only 75 runs came from his bat. The special thing is that these 75 runs came in the final of the 2007 World Cup, on the basis of which India won. However, he could not even open the account in the remaining two matches.
