Former Indian opener Gautam Gambhir recently opened up about the age-old cricketing rivalry between India and Pakistan, asserting that India currently holds a significantly superiority compared to Pakistan.

Gambhir shared his views on an Indian sports channel, highlighting the altered dynamics within the longstanding rivalry between India and Pakistan.

The intense on-field battles between India and Pakistan are renowned in cricket history, yet the absence of bilateral series between the two nations due to political tensions has amplified the anticipation for their matches in ICC events.

The last meeting between these two cricketing giants took place during the Cricket World Cup 2023, where India extended their unblemished streak against Pakistan.

“Pakistan has dominated India a lot of times. Currently, if you see the level of both teams, India is far superior to Pakistan in all three formats. If Pakistan defeats India it’s an upset, if India defeats Pakistan, it’s very much given,” Gambhir said on an Indian sports channel.

India has a dominant run in the World Cup 2023, where they remained undefeated until the final, where they lost against Australia. In contrast, Pakistan faced disappointment, exiting during the group stages of the tournament.

Gambhir additionally emphasized the evolving cricketing dynamics, mentioning that the rivalry between India and Australia has surged in prominence, surpassing even the historic India-Pakistan cricket rivalry.

“India and Australia, from a cricketing point of view, is a top rivalry. If you ask a cricket fan what is the actual rivalry, they will also say India and Australia,” Gambhir added.

Renowned for his forthright opinions and bold statements, Gambhir is no stranger to sparking conversations on social media. During a recent Q&A session on X (formerly Twitter), a fan queried Gambhir about his propensity for making “controversial statements.” In his characteristic straightforward manner, Gambhir responded, “I say what I feel. You should think who benefits from the controversies!”

The cricketing views of Gautam Gambhir often stir discussions, encapsulating the fervor and intrigue surrounding the sport’s rivalries and perceptions.
