    India has a very good record in ODI. Probably better than in Tests where they've lost in England, New Zealand and South Africa. They do well in ICC tournament group stages too. They only choke in the knockout stage.

    Tests never had a "knockout" match until now. So let's see how this team does there if we reach the final.

    Like several others might have observed, India could have theoretically played Pakistan, lost to them, and still reached WTC final and won it. How'd any of that make that Indian win phoney?

    Their team is mediocre so next best option is to create some fancy narratives to solace themselves.

    Truth is Pakistan is the team that everyone secretly fears (including India) because they know we can topple any side on our day.

    Also, BCCI has been conspiring against PCB for years now. They don't want to play us so that we dont generate any revenue and benefit from those matches.

    They also pressurise players of other nations not to play in the PSL so we dont achieve popularity like the IPL.

    India and BCCI are scared of Pakistan cricket.
    I kinda agree with this. The likes of NZ, England and Australia are teams are under the same pressure to qualify for WTC final just like India and so India's contests against these teams start off with equal pressure on both teams. Pakistan, like SL, BD and WI is a scary opponent. They know they have no chance in hell of qualifying for a WTC final with their best XI but would be highly motivated to give India a scare and thus play freely. On the other hand, India would have a lot to lose and it would be embarrassing losing to such teams. So India , in a way, was lucky to avoid Pakistan.

    They can be mediocre in Aus, SA or NZ but you guys are forgetting that in India they will give tough fight to India. They have good spinners who can trouble this Indian batting line up and batsman like Azhar Ali who is just like Pujara. It's not that they have never won a test in India. Not surprisingly I see some arrogance and overconfidence in Indian fans by sidelining Pakistan even without playing against them. Let's play and see where they stand these days head to head. These are not alien conditions for them. It's like Africa visiting Australia and vice-versa.

    Past Pakistani sides challenged India in India and have a good record in India, but current side will not pose a serious threat to India. India will be firm favorites at home against Pakistan, if they play now.

    That is not how india plays or thinks . India these days only thinks of winning . A defeat here an there will happen in pursuit of victory . But the goal is always to win
