It can’t get any bigger than this in International Cricket when two familiar foes battle it out in the ICC World Cup after every four years. Team India will be desperate to maintain the winning record against their noisy neighbors in the World Cups. Pakistan, on the contrary, would be hoping to create history this time around and register their first World Cup win against the Indian Team.  With more excitement and anticipation than ever, another mouth-watering tie awaits us when this age-old rivalry will unfold at Manchester on Sunday morning.
