Here’s how Pakistan have fared in the last decade in T20Is:

The Pakistan team is always a force to reckon with and their record in the shortest format of the game in the last 10 years has been satisfactory.

They have emerged victorious in 77 matches in the 129 matches they played, with a win percentage of 59.7.While they ended up on the losing side in 45 matches, two matches were tied and five matches produced no results.

But India outclassed their neighbours here as well, as far as their record over the last 10 years in T20Is is concerned.With a win percentage of 63.5, the inaugural T20 World Cup champions registered 73 wins out of 115 matches.They have suffered defeats in 37 matches while two games were tied and there were no results in three matches.

Pakistan were the runners-up in the inaugural edition in 2007 and the champions of the 2009 T20 World Cup.However, they failed to make any real impact in the past two T20 World Cups.They crashed out of the tournament at the Super 10 stage and failed to reach the last four in the 2016 T20 WC.Pakistan played 4 matches, won 1 and lost 3 to finish 4th in their group.

In the 2014 T20 World Cup, Pakistan had a similar outing, failing to qualify for the semifinals after finishing third in their group.They played 4 matches, won 2 and lost 2.
