Amid the geopolitical tensions and political disputes, this IND vs PAK match has gained more hype because Pakistan traveled to India. The border tensions between the two nations aren’t just on the government level, the citizens of the respective nations show love for cricket and patriotism to their country which makes this contest not only a cricket match but also an emotion.
India are Pakistan are in form teams holding the 3rd and 4th spots on the ICC World Cup 2023 Points table. Both have won both of their matches leading to this contest where one will face a loss today.
A little throwback to history that Pakistan has never won an ODI match against India in the ICC World Cup is the past. India have defeated Pakistan as many as seven times and they will be tying their boots tight to add 1 to it today.
India have defeated Australia first in this World Cup by 6 wickets where three of the four wickets (that fall) went for a duck but still, India managed to chase a handy total. KL Rahul’s 97* was the center of chase while Kohli contributed with his 85 as well.
While the middle order helped India to win the first match, this time it was top order against Afghanistan. India again got to chase a decent total on a ‘not easy’ track where skipper Rohit Sharma unleashed the beast mode and powered to a quick 131 runs which took India far ahead in the game very quickly.
Pakistan on the other hand, also won both of their match convincingly. An 81-run win against Netherlands in the first match and then a 6-wicket win against Sri Lanka helped them to get 4 points and a net run rate of just below +1.000.
This contest is going to be played at Narendra Modi Stadium, Ahmedabad which is the world’s largest stadium and it is anticipated that over 100k spectators will attend the match.

IND vs PAK Pitch Report Of Narendra Modi Stadium
The pitch at Narendra Modi Stadium regularly provides batters with significant assistance and a decent striking surface. However, considering the pitch’s inclination for seamers, the first few overs can be difficult for the batsmen.
On the eve of the match, the pitch seemed to be a black soil one with a faint green tint remaining to aid in binding. Teams will need a score in the range of 330-340 to feel fairly confident if the game plays even somewhat like it did on opening day, which is expected.
