According to a few sources, the cost of flights for the match between India and Pakistan has increased six times. The cost of hotels has also increased in the meanwhile.

Hotel costs have also increased by 20 times. Compared to July 4, when rooms cost Rs 2,086 just, they now cost almost Rs 59,000.

Last Time When India And Pakistan Met For ODI Battle

The last time India and Pakistan played in an ODI was during the league round of the 2019 Cricket World Cup in Manchester, England. Due to political and security considerations, India and Pakistan discontinued playing bilateral series after 2013, hence ICC trophy matches are the only venues these arch-rivals can presently compete.

Because of their respective origins, matches between India and Pakistan are always high-tension affairs. When these two teams met in England in 2019, India came out on top, defeating Pakistan. India batted first, and current Indian skipper Rohit Sharma blasted like crazy, scoring an undefeated 140 runs with a cameo of 77 runs from ex-leader Virat Kohli, together they gave the target of 337 runs.

When Pakistan came to bat, England’s real colours were shown, and it poured. The rain didn’t continue long and eventually stopped, but it messed with the timings, thus the match was trimmed to 40 overs. Pakistan, on the other hand, fell short of the objective by 89 runs and yet again lost another World Cup match against India.

 An intriguing truth is that these two arch rivals constantly lock horns in practically every world cup. Although Pakistan has never defeated India in an ODI World Cup. The legacy is 7-0, which means India has won all seven occasions they have faced each other.
