Pakistan team started their campaign against arch-rivals India. What happened in that match will go down in the history as one of the most dominating victories of Pakistan.

India was unbeaten against Pakistan in the World Cups but this time around the national team broke the jinx and that too in style after beating India by 10 wickets.
