That’s right! The title who read is completely right. In the upcoming Cricket World Cup 2015, India has a golden change to overtake Pakistan and jump to the number 2 position as Australia is on the number one spot. India has a change to overtake Pakistan in terms of number of One Day International wins.

India is currently on 3rd spot and Pakistan and Australia are on 2nd and 1st spot respectively. While Australia is way ahead of India, Pakistan is well within reach and there are good chances that India will overtake Pakistan as well.

While Pakistan has won 440 wins, India is close behind with 437 wins. If India manage to win the remaining two matches of the Carlton Tri-series between Australia, England and India i.e. the last remaining league match and the final against Australia.

Then the team would’ve won 439 matches and then the most awaited India versus Pakistan match of the World Cup would either take the Indian team at par with Pakistan’s tally of 440 wins or take Pakistan further ahead.

Knowing which, both the teams would be under an added pressure. On the other hand, Australia is way ahead and at a safe position with 521 wins from 847 matches. India also holds the record for the most number of ODI matches played i.e. 871 and also the record most ODIs lost which is 388.

If the Indian team gets back on winning ways, India could definitely get rid of the record for most ODI loses in the times to come until then they must try their best to be the team that has won most ODIs as well.
