With the ODI World Cup almost upon us, it is interesting to note how hosts India have fared so far in this tournament over the years.

India is going to start their campaign against Australia on the 8th of October at Chennai’s MA Chidambaram Stadium.

Therefore, it will be quite noteworthy to take a peek at India’s performance in the ODI World Cup’s 9 editions so far.

We are going to take a look at all the opponents that India has faced so far in the multi-nation tournament over the years.

India-Australia: A Mighty Battle Between the Two Sides

Let’s take a look at the India-Australia clashes in the World Cup. Over the past 9 editions, India has faced Australia 12 times.

Looking closely, we can see that the scales are heavily tipped for Australia as they have a 75 percent win record over India.

Moreover, they have eight victories and India has only four. Therefore, the Men in Blue will look to get closer to the Aussies when they defeat them on the 8th of October.

Additionally, the hosts will have to be at their very best if they don’t want Australia to dominate them.

Tables Turn when India faces Pakistan in the ODI World Cup

But, when it comes to another battle, the scenario changes completely for India.

India just loves to face Pakistan in the ODI World Cup as it is a rather thrilling competition between the two sides.

Fans drool over the fierce contest between these two nations and it’s nothing short of a blockbuster movie on the cricket field.

If we take a look at India’s records in the ODI World Cup against Pakistan, it is tipped heavily in favor of the hosts as they have a 100 percent win record.

In the 7 games played so far between the two, India has won all 7 contests while the Men in Green have 0 wins.

Therefore, they will now look to keep this to 8-0 when they meet on the 14th of October.

India’s performance against other rivals

And finally, talking about other rivals, India has different performance records against each of them.

With Bangladesh, India has a 3-1 record in World Cups while against Sri Lanka, it is a tie at 4-4.

But, when India faces tougher opponents like South Africa, England, and New Zealand, then they have to face a stiffer challenge.

India has 2-3, 3-4, and 3-5 against the aforementioned teams respectively.
