Babar will also be playing a match in India for the first time in his international career, having played in many places around the world
New Delhi, ICC has announced the schedule of ODI World Cup 2023 to be played in India. The biggest match of this tournament to be played from October 5 to November 19 will take place on October 15 in Ahmedabad. The whole world is eager to see India-Pakistan clash. Pakistan team is preparing to come to India.
Something is going to happen to Babar Azam in India, which he has neither been to nor experienced in his career so far. Pakistan team will play in India for the first time under the captaincy of Babar Azam.
Babar will also play a match in India for the first time in his international career. He played in many places all over the world, but now he will get to experience playing in India. Any ground in the world where the Indian team meets Pakistan, that ground becomes their home ground.
The whole stadium is painted blue and now Rohit Sharma’s team will face Pakistan at home. Babar will know for the first time how the atmosphere of the entire city along with the stadium is in such a situation.
Pakistan team has played many ODIs in India. Between 1983 and 2013, the two played 30 matches in India, with India winning 11 and losing 19, but the current Pakistan team led by Babar Azam will play on Indian soil for the first time in October.
Pakistan team last visited India in 2013. Misbah-ul-Haq was in charge of the Pakistan team on that tour. The team consisted of players including Nasir Jamshed, Mohammad Hafeez, Kamran Akmal, Saeed Ajmal, Azhar Ali, most of whom have retired and some have been out of the team for a long time and their return to the team for the World Cup is almost impossible.
Under the captaincy of Babar, the same Pakistan team will play the World Cup, which recently played the ODI series against New Zealand. Chances of change in the team are less. Fakhar Zaman, Shan Masood, Mohammad Rizwan, Shadab Khan, Shaheen Shah Afridi, Mohammad Wasim, Haris Rauf are the names who are almost certain to play for Pakistan in the World Cup and these are the players who have not played in India till date.
In such a situation, the current team of Pakistan is preparing to play in India for the first time. Pakistan’s current team has been performing brilliantly for some time now, but the challenge is going to be formidable. Although Babar’s team faced India, all those matches were played on foreign grounds.
