Indian off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin lauds Pakistan’s formidable bowling attack, emphasizing the thrilling nature of recent matches between the arch-rivals. “The upcoming World Cup clash between Pakistan and India will be a blockbuster,” exclaims Ashwin. “The last few encounters have been extraordinary, and Pakistan’s quality pace attack ensures a balanced contest.”
On the other hand, Pakistani all-rounder Shadab Khan expresses his desire to prioritize winning the ICC Cricket World Cup over defeating India. Recognizing the unique joy and pressure associated with playing against India, Shadab acknowledges the challenge of competing on their home ground with a crowd against them.
He emphasizes the importance of focusing on the World Cup as a whole rather than solely targeting a victory against India. Shadab asserts that even if Pakistan were to lose to India but emerge as World Cup champions, it would be a significant accomplishment, aligning with their ultimate goal.
The much-anticipated India-Pakistan match in the World Cup is scheduled for October 15 at the magnificent Narendra Modi Stadium, renowned as the world’s largest stadium with a capacity of up to 132,000 spectators. While Pakistan’s historical record against India in World Cup encounters is less favorable, having lost all seven previous matches, including the infamous semi-final defeat in the 2011 World Cup in Mohali, both teams are geared up for a fierce and riveting battle.
As for Pakistan’s schedule in the ICC World Cup 2023, they will face Qualifier 1 and Qualifier 2 on October 6 and October 12 respectively in Hyderabad. The highly anticipated match against India is set to take place on October 15 in Ahmedabad, followed by matches against Australia, Afghanistan, South Africa, Bangladesh, New Zealand, and England.
Notably, the day match on November 4 against New Zealand will start at 10:00 am Pakistan Standard Time (PST), while all other matches are scheduled as day-night fixtures commencing at 01:30 pm (PST).
