Tag IndvPak Records
Saeed Anwar had a thing against India. His stats, specially in ODIs against India, are brilliant, even if you forget the record breaking 194 at Chepauk Stadium in Chennai which is still the third highest ODI score by a batsman behind Virender Sehwag and Sachin Tendulkar's who're only two to make doubles in the format.
India v Pakistan head to head in ODI shows Pakistanis have had better off Indians over the years but in recent times, blue team has done some catch-up. Sharjah has hosted 26 Ind v Pak ODIs (most by any other ground) where once Sachin Tendulkar & Navjot Singh Sidhu put up a partnership of 231 for 2nd wicket which remains the best till date between two teams. here are some of records of between these two arch-rivals.
Saeed Anwar's 194 mentioned above is obviously the best, followed by Virat Kohli's 183 off just 148 balls at Mirpur and then MS Dhoni's belligerent 148 at Viazg. Shoaib Mallik's 143 comes next after which, we again have another Saeed Anwar special of 141 at Dhaka. Sourav Ganguly also once made 141 against Pakistan at Adelaide.

Biggest Victory margins
Another record dominated by Pakistan team. 159 run victory over India at Delhi in 2005 remains the biggest victory margin between the two teams, but more importantly - Pakistan have also beaten India by 143 runs(Jaipur, 1999), 134run (Toronto, 1998), 123 (Bangalore, 1999), 116, 106 and 104 runs. The biggest win for India over Pakistan is only 87, at Kochi 2005.. the 12th highest win margin between the sub-continent giant cricket teams.
smallest totals & victory margins
The very first encounter between these two - at Quetta back on 1st October 1978 was won by India by merely 4 runs. Pakistan have also beaten India by 4 runs at Sharjah once and that remains the lowest win margin. as I said earlier - there has been no tied match ever India-pakistan one day match!
Although Indian team'f fielding has been better than that of Pakistan for some years now - India conceeded 41 extras against arch-rivals at a Mohali game on 8th November 2007 - the maxmum ever. India have also give 39, 38 (thrice), 37(twice), 33(thrice) & 32 as extras in single innings. Pakistan most extra in one Indian batting innings is only 31 - 12th in the list!
hold an important significance in ever cricket match, but even more in Indo-pak matches cause players of both side understand each-other's language. Moin Khan was one such talk-a-tive wicketkeeper for Pakistan, who holds the record of most dismissals between the neighbouring countries - 58 catches + 13 stumpings = 71 total. For India, Nayan Mongia comes in second position with 29 scalps. Interestingly, Mongia once took 3 catches & effected 2 stumpings in one match at Toronto 1996 & those 5 dismissals in one innings is the best ever!
