Sachin Tendulkar's Absence Gives Pakistan Hope Against India

Friday, 06 February 2015 - 19:09

India go into the World Cup without the reassuring presence of retired batting superstar Sachin Tendulkar for the first time since 1992, which surely must bring relief to arch-rivals Pakistan.

Pakistan have lost all their five World Cup meetings against India and Tendulkar, who featured in all of them, proved a stumbling block on at least four occasions.

India and Pakistan face each other in a high-voltage clash at the Adelaide Oval on February 15th to kickstart their campaigns in the 2015 edition of cricket's showpiece event.
