Live End 
It is the most in-demand game of cricket ever played in England. Over half a million people have applied for tickets. In the last match between the two in a world event, 400 million watched. India-Pakistan is not merely the biggest fixture in cricket; it has a fair claim to being the biggest in all of sport.
Unlike the El Salvador and Honduras football teams, 50 years ago, an India-Pakistan cricket match has never been blamed for causing a war. But, from a 17-year hiatus between 1961 and 1978, a period marked by two wars, to the rapprochement in the early 2000s - the two countries played 31 games from 2004-2006 - and the current paucity of matches, 

It took 17 years at the World Cups for India and Pakistan to come face to face against each other. In 1987, favorites India and Pakistan bowed out in the semis losing to England and Australia respectively. The wait was pushed forward to 1992 and with the format forcing every team to play each other at least once, the Indo-Pak affair was inevitable.
India batted first at the SCG with the game reduced to 49 over a side contest after Pakistan were tardy in their overrate. The Indian innings was about two partnerships, one was a consolidation act between Ajay Jadeja and Mohammad Azharuddin for the second wicket worth 61 runs. And after a middle-order wobble triggered by leggie Mushtaq Ahmed, Sachin Tendulkar and Kapil Dev took charge. The quick 60-run partnership for the 6th wicket gave India something to play with. Sachin Tendulkar remained unbeaten on a fine 54 as India finished with 216 on the board.
Pakistan also had a big partnership for the third wicket after a sloppy start. But once India broke through the Aamer Sohail-Javed Miandad partnership, they kept chipping away with wickets to push Pakistan out of the contest. Sachin Tendulkar could do no wrong that day and provided the crucial breakthrough of Aamer Sohail who top-scored with 62. An all-round performance by the little master allowed India to gather a comfortable win by 43 runs. Tendulkar won the Man of the Match award which was going to be the first of his three Man of the Match awards in Indo-Pak clashes at the World Cups. Pakistan on their part dusted off their loses and went on a winning spree which saw them winning the cup.

What they said:

"Tense was Champions Trophy 2009, where Yuvi fractured a finger, and I was literally flown in and in two days time I was playing against Pakistan at Centurion. I hadn't experienced anything like that before, and I played a very bad shot, and I couldn't sleep until 6:00 in the morning. I was looking at the ceiling and thinking, that's it, I've flown in, and now I'm finished. So that was the most tense moment I've experienced" - Virat Kohli on his most tense moment in India-Pakistan games
