When it comes to World Cups, India have a 100% win record against Pakistan; but not in matches other than in World Cups. "Due to the Lok Sabha elections, the IPL next year may take place in the UAE", an unnamed BCCI official revealed.

ICC CEO Dave Richardson could announce the final fixtures either Thursday evening or on April 30.

India have never lost to Pakistan in World Cup matches. India will face Pakistan on June 16 at Old Trafford. This is the result of a request from the BCCI, who wanted India's first match pushed back to comply with the Lodha Committee's recommendation that there needed to be a 15-day window between the IPL and India's participation in any global series or tournament. However, in the same period, the number of Tests at home is set to increase to 19 from 15. "This is the first time Indo-Pak match won't be a starting affair". Who would not dream of the World Cup trophy? In fact, the wait might get prolonged as some in the BCCI think that there's no point playing a pink-ball Test when the World Test Championship ties are likely to be day matches.
