Pakistan’s Team travels for India for the ICC World Cup in 2023

Pakistan’s Team travels for India for the ICC World Cup in 2023

In the small hours of Wednesday, Pakistan’s team travels to India to take part in the ICC World Cup 2023, which will be contested from October 5 to November 19. The Green Shirts flew out of Lahore Airport with a stopover in Dubai before arriving at their ultimate destination of Hyderabad, India, tonight. On September 29, they will play New Zealand in their first pre-ICC World Cup 2023 match.

There was a significant delay in the issuance of Indian visas for the Pakistan cricket team’s players and staff for the ICC World Cup 2023. The International Cricket Council (ICC) received a letter from the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) protesting the delay in the issue of Indian visas as a result of this delay.

In a harsh letter, the PCB reportedly reminded the cricket regulating body of the host-member agreement and expressed its worries over the ongoing visa scandal. We’ve been talking about this problem for three years. Nobody paid any heed to our worries. And now things have progressed to the point where we have still not received our visas, according to the letter.

Due to the authorities’ ignorance, we are in a condition of uncertainty. Due to the visa difficulty, we had to cancel the two days that we were scheduled to spend in Dubai. Every time we called the appropriate official, we were informed that the visas would be provided within a day. And as time goes on, everyone is growing more anxious due to the growing uncertainty.

Babar Azam (wk), Abdullah Shafique, Fakhar Zaman, Imam-ul-Haq, Iftikhar Ahmed, Shadab Khan, Mohammad Nawaz, Usama Mir, Haris Rauf, M Wasim Jr., Hasan Ali, Shaheen Shah Afridi, Saud Shakeel, and Salman Ali Agha are among the players who have captained their team.

Mohammad Haris, Abrar Ahmed, and Zaman Khan are the contingent reserves.

  9. On October 31, Bangladesh will visit Kolkata.
  10. Day match on November 4 vs. New Zealand in Bengaluru
  11. England visit Kolkata on November 11.

All other matches are day-night fixtures and begin at 1:30 p.m. (PST), with the day matches beginning at 10:00 a.m. Pakistan Standard Time (PST). The Asia Cup got off to a strong start for Pakistan as they defeated underdogs Nepal and Bangladesh and bowled India out for 266 on Sept. 2 in their group encounter.

However, the hosts were routed by India by 228 runs in the Super Four round of the competition, and a last-ball loss to Sri Lanka prevented them from making it to the final. Mohammad Nawaz, a member of Pakistan’s 2016 T20 World Cup roster, and Agha Salman, a member of the Lahore Lions’ Champions League T20 squad, are the only two members of Pakistan’s current team who have visited India before.

“I’m ecstatic to perform in Ahmedabad. Azam described playing in India for the first time in his illustrious career as “the biggest stadium in the world, and it will be packed for the India-Pakistan match.”  I’ve talked to former cricket players about the disease, and they’re not all that different. I’ll do my best to deliver a quality performance. Since I’m not an astrologer, I can’t really predict how I’ll fare.

The players and officials were supposed to fly last week to the United Arab Emirates for a two-day team-building exercise in Dubai before continuing on to India, where their first match against the Netherlands would take place on October 6. The team’s preparations are now in turmoil due to a delay in securing visas for the contingent, which has brought up again the long-standing tense relations between the two nations.

However because our Indian visas took longer than expected to arrive, we had to postpone the team-building activity. Assuming the visas are acquired in a timely manner, the crew will now depart on September 27 for Hyderabad in southern India. The receipt of visas is a condition for our early Wednesday flight to Hyderabad via Dubai.

Conflict across Border

Since gaining independence from British domination in 1947, both nations have been savage adversaries. Since then, they have fought three wars and placed severe limitations on the cross-border travel of their inhabitants. Following a deterioration in relations over New Delhi’s contentious decision to abolish the special status of Indian-occupied Kashmir, direct flights between India and Pakistan have been halted for more than four years.

The last time Pakistan’s cricket team visited India was in 2016 for the T20 Cricket World Cup, whereas India hasn’t sent a cricket team to Pakistan since 2006. In 2012, the two sides’ most recent bilateral series took place. The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) had complained to the International Cricket Council (ICC) about visa delays, alleging interference with the team’s cross-border preparation for the competition.

Prior to beginning their World Cup campaign against the Netherlands on October 6, Pakistan’s team will play two exhibition games. Arc-rivals India and Pakistan’s matchup, set for October 14 in Ahmedabad, is one of the most eagerly anticipated contests in the competition. On September 29, Pakistan is slated to compete in the first of their two pre-tournament exhibition games in Hyderabad.

Given that both players have a sizable advantage over their nearest competitors, the rivalry between Babar and Gill is likely to be widely observed throughout the World Cup. Rassie van der Dussen, a South African batter, is ranked third overall but is more than 100 rating points below the top two. Despite Ireland’s ODI series against England being hampered by weather, Harry Tector’s rating set a new high for his career.

Both Shreyas Iyer and KL Rahul of India received increases in their rankings as a result of their strong performances against Australia, with Iyer moving up eight ranks to 30th and Rahul moving up six spaces to 33rd. Despite not playing in the ODI series against Australia, Gill’s colleague Mohammed Siraj continues to hold the top spot among ODI bowlers.
