In a worldwide competition, India and Pakistan will battle it out once again with each other.  Pakistan and India played together in every ICC championship ever since the World T20 in 2014, along with the 2015 World Cup, the 2016 World T20, the 2017 ICC Champions Trophy, and the 2019 World Cup where Team India lost just once.
