Head to head Pakistan vs Bangladesh T20 World Cup
The gap between the teams comes from their geographical distance and their standing in the world cup. Pakistan and Bangladesh have some serious rivalry when it comes to cricket. Both teams are stacked with international stars. Moreover, they feature the most polished cricketers and bowlers in the World Cup. Over the years, they have faced each other in sixteen matches in the ICC T20Is World Cup tournament.
Out of the sixteen games played, Pakistan dominated Bangladesh with thirteen wins, and Bangladesh by winning the other two matches. The most recent T20Is played between Bangladesh and Pakistan were abandoned without any ball. The most memorable score made by Pakistan was 201, whereas the highest score posted by Bangladesh was 175 runs. However, 141 is the lowest total by Pakistan, whereas Bangladesh posted the lowest total of 140 runs in the marquee event, which was indeed disappointing.
When talking about Bangladesh, the team has shown a slightly unsatisfactory record, especially in the T20Is World Cup against Pakistan. Pakistan has a slight advantage over its competitors as they have won thirteen times. Over the years, both teams have evolved drastically in terms of their strategies, players, and tactics to win matches.
This dominance can also be seen as Pakistan has become a much more polished team over the years; however, Bangladesh is still trying hard to stand against Pakistan.
