The eagerly anticipated schedule for Pakistan vs India match at the ICC World Cup 2023 has been shared with the participating countries!
ESPNcricinfo reported that the eagerly awaited Pakistan vs India match of the ICC World Cup 2023 schedule will be held on October 14 at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad, sparking great enthusiasm among fans.
A previous draft proposed a first match between England and New Zealand for October 5 in Ahmedabad. There is no doubt that this Indian team will be the favorites of the ODI World Cup because they already won the title back in 2011 under the leadership of MS Dhoni and they will be playing their league games in nine cities, including Kolkata, Mumbai, New Delhi, and Bengaluru. On October 14, they will be playing a match against Pakistan.
