New Delhi: Much to the delight of cricket fans across the world, arch-rivals India and Pakistan can once again play against each other in the ongoing ICC World Cup 2015.
If India defeat Bangladesh in the second quarter-final and Pakistan defeat Australia in the third quarter-final, the two neighbours will clash in the 2nd semi-final of the tournament.
These two teams locked horns against each other in the fourth match of the tournament where the MS Dhoni-led side defeated Misbah & Co by 76 runs.
In that match, as a result of a brilliant ton from Virat Kohli, India scored 300 runs batting first and then bowled out Pakistan for 224 runs.
