Big Breaking: Pakistan is Ready to play Cricket in india, World Cup 2023 is clear now, India-Pakistan match to be played on October 14
The 2023 ODI World Cup match between India and Pakistan has been moved from its planned date of October 15 to the earlier day of October 14. Even though a new schedule has not been officially released by the ICC as of yet, Crichistory.in has learned that the PCB has agreed to the switch. Still, Ahmedabad will serve as the venue for the match.
The World Cup's greatest match has been moved, which affects Pakistan's previous match, which was scheduled to take place against Sri Lanka in Hyderabad. There will be enough time for Pakistan to recover between games if they are played on October 10 instead of October 12.
According to reports, the match between India and Pakistan had to be moved since the original date was the first day of the Hindu holiday of Navaratri, and local authorities were worried about providing appropriate protection on that day. A few days ago, the ICC sent the adjustments to the PCB via letter, and the PCB accepted them.
Jay Shah, secretary of the BCCI, denied that the conflict with Navaratri played any role in the decision to move the festival. Last week, he announced that the World Cup schedule would be altered to accommodate the wishes of numerous Full Member countries.
There will almost probably be repercussions for other games and teams due to the postponement of India and Pakistan's match. On October 14, in addition to the matchup between Bangladesh and New Zealand in Chennai, there will also be a matchup between Afghanistan and England in Delhi. The second game is likely to be impacted, and may have to be moved up to the 12th of October.
Even though the ODI World Cup is only two months away, the schedule has already been pushed back significantly due to the alterations. Just 100 days before the commencement of the event, at the end of June, it was finally issued by the BCCI and the ICC. The schedules for both the 2015 tournament in Australia and New Zealand and the 2019 tournament in England and Wales were made public more than a year in advance.
Tickets for the October 5 opener between the defending champions England and the New Zealand Black Caps in Ahmedabad have not yet gone on sale, and neither has the tournament been officially declared by the ICC or the BCCI.
