IND vs PAK: The India vs Pakistan fixture in the ICC Cricket World Cup 2023 has been preponed by a day as the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) and International Cricket Council (ICC) approve the new schedule.

As per the updated schedule for the World Cup 2023, India will play Pakistan on October 14, instead of October 15 in the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad. Pakistan vs Sri Lanka, which was originally scheduled to be held on October 12, will now be held on October 10 in Hyderabad.

The need to reschedule the IND vs PAK fixture was paramount due to the apparent security concerns on October 15, which is the first day of Navratri in the state of Gujarat.
