In this memorable picture of Pakistan vs India match Quarter Final Bangalore 1996. The players face expression tell it all at the post-match ceremony of the 1996 world cup. This great quarter-final was played at the Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bangalore. Pakistan had just been beaten by India by 39 runs after being restricted to a score of 248-9 in the 49 over’s they were allowed to bat in. The date was March 9 and Bangalore’s inaugural floodlit international. It coincided with the first meeting of these teams on Indian soil for 6 and a half years.
India notched up 287 for 8 in their 50 overs and Pakistan docked an over for their tardy bowling rate. They were crashed after a brilliant 84 runs start between stand-in Captain Aamir Sohail and Saeed Anwar. Sohail is seen on the right above the wicketkeeper Rashid Latif and Indian captain Muhammad Azharuddin.  The absence of regular captain Wasim Akram through a side strain was bitterly felt. This is memorable Quarter Final Bangalore 1996 still in peoples mind.
