The India vs Pakistan clash in the ICC World Cup 2023 took place on 14th October at Narendra Modi International Stadium in Ahmedabad. It was a sea of blue there as the stadium was jam-packed with Indian spectators. The fans were behind the Men in Blue and they put great pressure on the Babar Azam-led side.
While there was utter chaos on every run and wicket taken by India, the stadium also witnessed pin-drop silence during the game when Pakistan scored runs and took wickets. This was because hardly any supporter from Pakistan was present in the stands as they weren’t granted visas by the Indian embassy.
The ICC World Cup 2023 game also witnessed a section of the crowd that was pathetic and mocked Pakistan players. When captain Babar Azam came for the toss, he was booed by fans in Ahmedabad and also a video emerged on social media in which Mohammad Rizwan was subjected to religious chants.
The Pakistan players were also trolled brutally for their performance against India in ICC World Cup 2023. A section of spectators also threw paper planes towards Hasan Ali. Apart from this there were some toxic remarks as well that haven’t gone well with the Pakistan Cricket Board.
As per the reports in the Telegraph, the Pakistan Cricket Board is likely to lodge an official complaint against the Ahmedabad crowd to the International Cricket Council (ICC). The top officials of the governing body are looking into the matter and will address the issue to Chairman Zaka Ashraf, who will take the final call.
Pakistan notably received great support from Hyderabad crowd, where they played their two games and won both of them. They also got a warm welcome on arriving in India. The Babar Azam-led side have now moved to Bangalore, where they will be playing against Australia and the will travel to Chennai for Afghanistan clash.
