India's first game in the World Cup will be against Australia on October 8 at the MA Chidambaram stadium in Chennai. They played Pakistan on October 14 at the Narendra Modi stadium in Ahmedabad. Pakistan is one of their biggest foes.
India and Pakistan don't play each other much in international cricket because their governments don't get along. Because of this, there is a lot of hype for the big match in Ahmedabad. India plays Pakistan in the Asia Cup 2023, but the World Cup is the biggest stage, and both teams' cricketers will need to be skilled and calm to beat their fears and win.
