Champions Trophy: Here's what Virender Sehwag advised Pakistan fans ahead of encounter with India

India-Pakistan matches have always been the highly anticipated clash of an ICC event as they draw record crowd and clock highest viewerships on televisions.

As the dates of yet another India-Pakistan match are finally out, former India opener Virender Sehwag has come up with a message for Pakistan fans.

The right-handed-batter took to his Twitter handle to advise Pakistani fans to not to break television sets, if their team loses at Team India's hands once again.

Sehwag has been very active on Twitter, lately, and never leaves a chance to show his witty side. The former India swashbuckler, who made some big records batting against Pakistan, had in the past targetted his good friend Shoaib Akhtar when it came to India-Pak rivalry on field.

India has maintained a good record against Pakistan in ICC tournaments. But when it comes to Champions Trophy, Men In Green have an edge over Men In Blue as former lead 2-1 here.

While in the World Cups, India have a 11-0 lead over Pakistan in all World Cups. Recently, Men In Blue defeated Men In Green during the ICC World T20 2016 in the month of March.

Riding on Virat Kohli's magnificent unbeaten 55 off 37 balls, India defeated arch-rivals Pakistan by 6 wickets to earn their first victory in the ongoing T20 World Cup. 

Looking at the kind of form Team India is and the way Pakistan cricket team is playing, the former certainly have an upper hand. But the tournament is still very far and cricket is a game of uncertainties. 

Thus, it will be interesting to see which side gets the better of the other.
