The 2023 World Cup begins on October 5th. This time the World Cup is to be held on Indian soil. At the same time, on October 14, the game between India and Pakistan will be played. Both teams will face off at Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad. However, according to the already established schedule, the game between India and Pakistan was supposed to be played on October 15, but after that the schedule was changed.
After the change in the World Cup schedule, the India-Pakistan match date was set for October 14. However, nothing changed at the venue. The match between India and Pakistan will be played at Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad. However, following the change of the date of the match between India and Pakistan, former Pakistan Cricket Board Chairman Najam Sethi has targeted the BCCI. Najam Sethi tweeted that if BCCI had heeded my words, there would have been no reason to change the schedule.

Najam Sethi, former chairman of the Pakistan Cricket Board, tweeted that I suggested that Pakistan play the World Cup at a neutral venue, but they didn’t listen. As a result, the World Cup schedule now has to be continuously changed. If the BCCI officials had accepted my suggestion, this situation might not have arisen. Significantly, the 2023 World Cup on October 14 will see teams from India and Pakistan face off. The match between the two teams will be played at Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad.
