The 22nd match of the ongoing ICC Cricket World 2019 will be played between India and Pakistan on 16 June, Sunday. In this World Cup so far, India have remained unbeaten and Indian fans will be hoping that India beats Pakistan like it has in all their World Cup encounters till date.
Let us have a look at 5 Pakistan bowlers who have conceded the most runs against India.
1. Shahid Afridi
Former Pakistan cricketer Shahid Afridi has been a wonderful asset for his team in his days. However, he is on the top of the list as far as most runs conceded against India are concerned.
Afridi has featured in 67 matches for Pak against India in which he has conceded 2300 runs and picked up 38 wickets.
Afridi is the only Pak bowler who has given away more than 2000 runs against India.
2. Wasim Akram
Next on this list is none other than the King of Swing bowling – Wasim Akram. In his prime, Akram could easily force the opposition batsmen to surrender to his outstanding skills.
But the Indian batsmen were more or less successful against them. The left arm seamer featured in 48 matches for Pak against India and gave away 1509 runs. In the process, Akram picked up 60 wickets.
3. Abdul Razzaq
Pakistan’s former all rounder Abdul Razzaq has also been one of India’s favourite bowlers to score off. Razzaq has played 35 matches for Pakistan against India in which he has picked up 35 wickets and given away 1395 runs.
4. Saqlain Mushtaq
One of Pakistan’s brilliant spin bowlers, Saqlain Mushtaq’s record against India hasn’t been that impressive. Mushtaq is number 4 in this list of most runs conceded against India. The off spinner has played in 36 matches for Pakistan against India and conceded 1390 runs.
5. Aaqib Javed
