India And Pakistan Agree To Play Their World Cup Encounter In Ahmedabad
June 11, 2023 / By Zunair Tahir / Sport News
Pakistan first had worries about performing in Ahmedabad for security grounds. The location of the World Cup match between India and Pakistan has been decided, according to an agreement between the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) and the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB).
Pakistan has finally accepted to take on India at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad, India, according to a report from Dainik Jagran.
Pakistan had first raised security-related reservations about playing in Ahmedabad. However, a solution has been achieved following discussions and negotiations between the BCCI and PCB. Following the BCCI’s decision to approve the PCB’s suggested hybrid concept for the Asia Cup, this choice was made.
The first four games of the tournament’s group stage will be played in Lahore, Pakistan, in accordance with the hybrid concept put out by the PCB. The following round, which will include games involving India and the championship, will take place in Sri Lanka. This agreement allays Pakistan’s security worries while allowing both nations to hold games.
If their hybrid concept was rejected, the PCB had threatened to boycott the Asia Cup and then the ODI World Cup in India.
In order to allay these worries, representatives from the International Cricket Council (ICC), including Chairman Greg Barclay and CEO Geoff Allardice, travelled to Lahore and met with PCB representatives in order to get a commitment that the Pakistan squad will go to India for the 2023 World Cup.
The BCCI chose to accept the PCB’s suggested hybrid approach and conduct the World Cup match between India and Pakistan in Ahmedabad in light of this promise. This match is crucial since it will pit the two bitter rivals against one another on Indian soil for the first time since 2016.
The expectation of a sizable number of foreign spectators travelling to India for the tournament led the BCCI to decide to hold this intense match in Ahmedabad’s Narendra Modi Stadium. The Narendra Modi venue is the largest cricket venue in the nation, with space for up to 100,000 spectators.
The report also stated that Chennai and Hyderabad will host the majority of Pakistan’s World Cup games.
The World Cup schedule has already been provided by the BCCI to the ICC, and it is anticipated to be made public by Wednesday. The high-profile encounter between India and Pakistan, which is expected to be an exciting match showing the great rivalry between the two cricketing nations, is highly anticipated by cricket fans across the world.
