IND vs PAK ICC Cricket World Cup 2023: Major news: owing to obvious security concerns in Ahmedabad, the most anticipated IND vs. PAK game of the ICC Cricket World Cup 2023 is likely to be delayed. The security services reportedly recommended that the BCCI move the IND Vs PAK Game to a another day.
The much-anticipated match between IND Vs PAK Game will finally take place on October 15 at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad. There may be changes to the schedule that was revealed a few days ago for the ICC Cricket World Cup 2023 by the ICC and BCCI.
The first day of Navratri, a celebration celebrated with the Garba dance all night long in Gujarat, begins on October 15, according to the Indian Express. Due to the significant security risks involved, it will not be possible to host a high-profile match between India and Pakistan.
We are currently considering our alternatives and hope to make a decision shortly. The security officials have warned us not to schedule any major events during Navratri, including the upcoming India vs. Pakistan match, for which lakhs of fans are anticipated to flock to Ahmedabad.
Nightmare for fans if IND vs PAK game rescheduled
BCCI has announced India’s home series for the 2023–34 season.
Fans who have already committed to making the trip to Ahmedabad for the ICC Cricket World Cup 2023 would have a terrible time if the IND Vs PAK Game is moved. Many fans had already purchased their overpriced plane tickets and crowded hotel rooms in anticipation of the big event. Some news accounts even said that hotel-seekers resorted to reserving hospital beds for the night.
As a consequence, if the ICC World Cup 2023 schedule is changed, many fans would have to cancel their hotel reservations and other travel arrangements to Ahmedabad.
It should be noted that the BCCI and ICC have not yet started selling tickets to any of the games at their respective stadiums. The inexplicable delay in ticket sales comes with little over two months till the highly anticipated event begins.
BCCI secretary Jay Shah has scheduled a meeting on July 27 with all the relevant parties, including the countries that will be hosting games at the ICC World Cup 2023, to further explore the future of the IND Vs PAK Game.
I think it’s better for everyone if we get together again to compare notes and evaluate any pending business that needs to be settled. This letter was sent to invite you to a meeting of the World Cup host organizations.
On October 5, England will face New Zealand in the first match of the ICC Cricket World Cup 2023 at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Delhi. The Narendra Modi Stadium will also host the championship final on November 19.
