PAK vs SL Head-to-Head in the ICC Cricket World Cup

Pakistan and Sri Lanka have a long-standing history in the ICC Cricket World Cup, but it has been largely one-sided. The two nations have crossed paths eight times in the World Cup, with Pakistan emerging victorious in seven of those encounters. The most recent match between the two in the 2019 edition was a washout due to rain, further consolidating Pakistan’s dominance over Sri Lanka in the ODI World Cup. However, cricket is known for its unpredictability, and Sri Lanka will be looking to turn the tide in this edition.
