Pakistan have won the ODI World Cup once, in 1992, under the captaincy of Imran Khan, when they defeated England in the final, in Melbourne. In the 2019 ODI World Cup, Pakistan were captained by Sarfaraz Ahmed, and failed to reach the semi-finals. They also lost to arch-rivals India in Manchester. Pakistan will begin their ODI World Cup campaign against the Netherlands in Hyderabad on October 6, and their match against India will be on October 14 in Ahmedabad.
