Cricket World Cup 2015 started on February 14 but the real world cup started for cricket fans of India and Pakistan on February 15 because India vs Pakistan match will take place on that day. India and Pakistan played against each other for 5 times in World Cup history and they will be playing 6th time in Cricket World Cup 2015. In the 5 World cup matches India win all the matches over Pakistan and Pakistan have jinx of not winning against India in World cups. They want to break the jinx in Cricket World Cup 2015.
