Is Pak's destiny to follow India?

Recommended Posts

I have seen many times Pak win a major tournament and hold top test ranking after India. To summarize:

 

  • India 1983 WC -> Pak 1992 WC
  • India 1985 WCC -> Pak 1989 Nehru Cup 
  • India 2007 T20 WC -> Pak 2009 T20 WC
  • India #1 Test ranking -> Pak #1 Test ranking (but only for a brief moment) 
  • India Champions Trophy -> Pak managed to win it as if it was destined in the final event of the version (could have guessed it) 

 

Once Pak wins an equivalent trophy, its luck can run out and then it could find difficult to win an equivalent trophy again. In the near future, is Pak good enough to win any major events?

The sequence broke when India won in 2011. 2015 was Australia.

Pak manages to somehow win after India but not necessarily in back to back events (87WC was won by Aus for e.g. and Ind was a joint winner in CT in 2002, then won again in 2013) and then loses steam

With the recent WC2019 result, don’t see Pakistan making any headway in 2020/21/22/23..

While Pak follows India in winning title, after completing a win in the respective categories, it tends to struggle to win the next title (like I said loses steam), so it could be a long time before it wins another title :dontknow:

Their fans certainly think that their team is great. Stats in recent past don’t suggest that.

 

Another interesting pattern, SL finished as runner up twice in succession in 2007 and 2011. NZ have repeated the pattern in the next two, 2015 and 2019. Will it be someone new in 2023?
