India vs. Pakistan's World Cup 2023 match has been moved to October 14 after PCB approved the change: Report

India vs. Pakistan is scheduled to take place in the stadium with the highest seating capacity in the globe during the ICC globe Cup 2023, according to BCCI and ICC authorities.

In the ICC World Cup 2023, the highly anticipated India vs. Pakistan game is probably going to be moved from October 15 to October 14. The big-ticket match will still take place at Ahmedabad’s Narendra Modi Stadium. According to BCCI and ICC authorities, the location for the headline encounter between the two archrivals will remain the stadium with the biggest seating capacity in the world. To change the venue for an ICC event in India, as the PCB has requested, is not unusual. They had compelled a change in venue for their league match against India from Dharmshala to Kolkata after a visit of their security delegation ahead of the 2016 T20 World Cup.

On Thursday, the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) is anticipated to make a formal pronouncement regarding the matter after receiving approval from the high-level committee that Prime Minister Shahbaz Sharif established. Once that has occurred, PCB won’t be concerned about sending their team to India for the ICC event, which is scheduled to start on October 5. They might, however, want to perform a reconnaissance of all the Indian locations where they are scheduled to perform. According to reports in the Pakistani media, PCB would establish a specialized security team to accomplish this.

The preparation for the India vs. Pakistan match, according to ICC sources, will also cause a modification in the date of Pakistan’s October 12 match against Sri Lanka in Hyderabad. It will probably take place on October 10 to provide Pakistan enough time to prepare for the two games. The match between Pakistan and the Netherlands, set for October 6 at the same Hyderabad site, might potentially be postponed by a day or two if the same reasoning is used.

The schedule of Pakistan’s encounter against Sri Lanka on October 12 in Hyderabad will change as a result of the preparation for the India vs. Pakistan game, according to ICC sources. In order to give Pakistan adequate time to prepare for the two games, it will probably take place on October 10. If the same argument is applied, the match between Pakistan and the Netherlands, scheduled for October 6 at the same Hyderabad venue, may potentially be postponed by one or two days.

It’s interesting to note that when the ICC releases a revised version of the ODI World Cup fixtures, there will be other changes in addition to the timing of Pakistan’s few group matches. A couple of days ago, BCCI secretary Jay Shah stated that a few other member boards had asked for minor adjustments to their individual timetables. As a result, it is possible that a couple of those clubs’ games will be postponed.

On October 5 in Ahmedabad, England and New Zealand, the winners of the previous World Cup, square off. Three days later, on October 8, hosts India kicks off their trip against Australia at Chennai’s Chidambaram Stadium.

On November 15 at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai and on November 16 at the Eden Gardens in Kolkata, the tournament’s two semifinal matches are scheduled to occur. The championship game will take place on November 19 in Ahmedabad. These three knockout matches’ scheduled dates won’t alter. There is a caveat, though. If India advances to the semi-final, they must play that game in Mumbai, excluding a matchup with Pakistan, whose semi-final must take place in Kolkata at any costs.
