Former Pakistan captain Shahid Afridi claims Indian players used to ask for forgiveness after losing against their arch-rivals in cricket. Pakistan do enjoy a superior head-to-head record against India in Test and ODI cricket.

The two teams have met 59 times in Tests with Pakistan winning 12 games while India managed 9 victories. The difference is even bigger in 50-overs cricket in which Pakistan enjoy a 73-55 record over their neighbours.

India are only ahead in the shortest format, having won 6 out of 8 matches played against Pakistan.

“Unhe to theek-thaak mara hai humne (We’ve thrashed them a lot). Itna mara hai unhe ki match ke baad maafiyan mangi hai unhone (We’ve beaten them so much that they used to ask us for forgiveness after matches).

"I have enjoyed a lot playing against India and Australia, you have more pressure. They are good teams, big teams. Going and performing in their conditions is the big thing,” Afridi said on Cric Cast show on YouTube.

The recent matches between the two teams have generally been one-sided affairs in favour of Team India. Infact, India's record against Pakistan has been superior ever since Afridi made his international debut in 1996.

But Afridi also maintained that he has always had a great time playing against India and Australia in their own backyards.

"Whatever cricket I have played, have enjoyed a lot against India and Australia. The pressure was always high when I played against them. Performing well in their own conditions was a big achievement for me."
