T20 World Cup, India vs Pakistan: In the matches between India and Pakistan, there is often an atmosphere of tension between the two teams. The cricket field is also not untouched by the atmosphere of heated exchange between the two countries. Talking about the records so far, the two teams have faced each other twice, including ODI and T20 World Cup. Five of these matches have been played in the T20 World Cup. Apart from this, both the teams have also come face to face in many other tournaments including Asia Cup. In these high voltage encounters, there have often been incidents of clashes in the field. Whether it was the tussle between former India wicketkeeper-batsman Kiran More and former Pakistan legend Javed Miandad in the 1992 ODI World Cup, or the tussle between Gautam Gambhir and Kamran Akmal in the 2010 Asia Cup. Let us know about those four matches when there was a fierce clash between the players of India and Pakistan on the field.

One Day World Cup 1992 Kiran More vs Javed Miandad

This incident of clash between Kiran More and Javed Miandad in the ODI World Cup 1992 will be fresh in everyone’s mind even today. Although the style of this clash still makes the fans laugh. Batting first in this match, India had given a target of 217 runs to Pakistan. After recovering from the initial setbacks, the Pakistan team carried the innings on the basis of Javed Miandad and Amir Sohail. During this, wicketkeeper Kiran More was constantly appealing. Miandad did not like More’s style of making this constant appeal. During this, Miandad ran to take a run by putting a shot. More had blown the bails as soon as he got the throw, but Miandad, who had reached the crease, knew what he knew and he started jumping loudly to tease More. Cricket fans found this scene in the middle of the field very funny. However, after this, More also imitated Miandad from behind the wicket and started bouncing in the same style when he was dismissed.

One Day World Cup 1996, Venkatesh Prasad Vs Amir Sohail

Both the teams were once again face to face in the 1996 World Cup. India batted first and gave a target of 288 runs to Pakistan to win. For Pakistan, Amir Sohail and Saeed Anwar gave the team a flamboyant start. Meanwhile, in the 15th over of the innings, Amir Sohail hit a brilliant four on the off-side off Venkatesh Prasad. Soon after, Sohail, teasing Venkatesh Prasad, batted towards the off side and said that he would once again hit this side. Teasing Prasad in this way was costly to Sohail and on the very next ball, Team India’s bowler bowled him and pointed to the pavilion. During this, an atmosphere of tension was seen between both the players.

Asia Cup 2010 Harbhajan Singh vs Shoaib Akhtar

Between Harbhajan Singh and Shoaib Akhtar, there is often an atmosphere of spat on social media even today. However, the foundation of the tussle between the two players was laid in the 2010 Asia Cup itself. India’s team was chasing the target in this match. In the 47th over of the innings, Harbhajan hit a brilliant six off Shoaib Akhtar, after which a war of words started between the two. Akhtar was furious after hitting his ball for a six and he started bowling while targeting Harbhajan’s body. After this, in the end, Harbhajan had won the team by hitting a six and after that, seeing Shoaib Akhtar, he celebrated by shouting. Akhtar also did not like Harbhajan’s style and shook hands and gestured to Harbhajan to move forward.

Asia Cup 2010, Gautam Gambhir vs Kamran Akmal

During the Asia Cup, once again there was an atmosphere of fierce fighting between Gautam Gambhir and Kamran Akmal. During India’s innings, Mahendra Singh Dhoni was present at the crease along with Gautam Gambhir. Meanwhile, Kamran Akmal, standing behind the wicket, was continuously appealing without reason. Gambhir did not like this talk of Akmal and he clashed with Akmal about this matter. There was a fierce debate between both the players during this time. The quarrel had increased so much that the umpires and other players standing in the field intervened and pacified them. Gambhir played a brilliant innings of 83 runs in this match and was adjudged the player of the match.
