Will India be able to win this battle or will they register their first defeat against Pakistan in World cup? Who will win the India Vs Pakistan Semi Final World cup 2011 encounter? Our Vedic Astrologers has analyzed the situation and here are the astrological details for the India Vs Pakistan Semi Final World cup 2011.

1986 Australasia Cup Final, Sharjah – India scored 245 for 7 and Pakistan was in deep trouble in the chase, requiring 11 runs to win from the final over and then losing two wickets. The bowler was Chetan Sharma – the first man to take a World Cup hat-trick, in 1987 against New Zealand – and Javed Miandad was facing. With Pakistan needing four runs from the final delivery of the match, Sharma bowled a rank full toss that Miandad smashed for six, earning his team an unlikely victory.

1997 India in Pakistan ODI Series, 2nd Match – Pakistan batted first in Karachi and scored 265 runs, but the innings was interrupted four times because of stone throwing from the partisan crowd. The innings was eventually halted in the 47th over after Sourav Ganguly was hit by an object thrown from the stands and Sachin Tendulkar, who was captain at the time, complained to the match referee. India’s reply stuttered after Ganguly was out for 89, but a partnership between Robin Singh and Saba Karim kept India in the match before Rajesh Chauhan came in and hit a six for victory in the final over. It was only India’s third ever ODI triumph on Pakistani soil.

1984 Rothmans Four-Nations Cup, Sharjah – The neutral venue of Sharjah features again, playing host to a match in which India slumped to 125 all-out, with just Mohammad Azharuddin and captain Kapil Dev getting scores of any note – 47 and 30, respectively. With such a paltry total the match looked like a lost cause for India, but some brilliant fielding, particularly from Sunil Gavaskar with a then-world record four catches at slip, sent Pakistan crashing to 87 all out and sealed an unlikely victory for India.

1996 World Cup Quarterfinal, Bangalore – This was a fiery encounter between the two rivals, and the furthest into the World Cup they’d ever met. India batted first and scored 287 as Navjot Sidhu – now a colorful but cliché-prone television pundit – top-scored with 93 runs. The match is most memorable for Ajay Jadeja’s ruthless batting after he smashed 45 runs from 25 balls, and also for the spat between Paksitan’s opening batsman Aamer Sohail and Venkatesh Prasad. Sohail cockily pointed to the spot on the cover boundary where he’d hit Prasad for four runs, but the Indian bowler came back with the perfect retort as he bowled Sohail on the next delivery, uprooting the leg stump. Tensions ran high after the encounter, with one Pakistani fan reportedly shooting his television and then himself, while effigies of Wasim Akram were burned, even though he didn’t play in the game because of injury.

2003 World Cup, Pool A, Centurion – The most recent of the classics, this one is fondly remembered by Indians because of that man Sachin Tendulkar. Despite falling two runs short of his century and struggling with cramp, the Little Master will be remembered as the hero in this match for launching a remarkable six off Shoaib Akhtar over third man and into the stands. It was an incredible shot, particularly as Akhtar was in fine form that tournament, bowling the fastest ball on record – 100.2mph to England’s Nick Knight. Tendulkar’s shot, and others he played throughout his dazzling innings, showed the Rawalpindi Express and his teammates no respect. Pakistan had scored 273, inspired by a century from opener Saeed Anwar, but India reached that target with four overs to spare.

2010 Asia Cup, Colombo -  Being set a total of 268 under lights at R Premdassa, Colombo, India was relying on the openers to let them off to a brisk start but the reality was different as Sehwag went early but captain Dhoni alongwith Gambhir steadied the ship for India. The match will be remembered for the on field arguements between Bhajji and Shoaib Akhtar. Eventually Bhajji's agrression paid of as he hit a massive six off Mohamed Aamer to wrap things up for India.
