Former wicketkeeper Rashid Latif reckoned that Pakistan is a better cricket team than India.

The International Cricket Council on Thursday revealed that the India vs Pakistan ICC T20 World Cup Super 12 match was the most viewed game with 15.9 billion minutes in India alone.

The match was the one-sided affair but that didn’t deter the fans from consuming 15.9 billion minutes on the Star India Network, surpassing the previous record of the India vs West Indies semi-final match from the T20 World Cup in 2016.

“We are pleased with these outstanding global viewership numbers, that demonstrate the power of T20I cricket to attract a huge audience across the globe on linear and digital platforms,” ICC CEO Geoff Allardice said in a release.

“It reinforces our belief that there is a significant opportunity and appetite to grow the game in our strategic growth markets including the USA, so more fans can enjoy it, more kids are inspired by it and sponsors and broadcasters want to be a part of it.”
