World Cup 2023 India vs Pakistan: Match Date, Predicted Squads, And Full Schedule. India will host the 13th edition of the ICC Cricket World Cup from October 5 to November 19. With 10 teams participating, the competition will be held in a round-robin style, with each team facing off against each other once. The top four teams will then be promoted to the semi-finals.

As per the ODI World Cup 2023 schedule, the opening match will be played between defending champion and runner-up on October 5th, while India will play its first match against Australia on October 8 at Chennai.

Team India will face arch-rivals Pakistan in the ODI World Cup on October 15. But multiple reports suggested that this match will be rescheduled on 14th oct. Given the nature of the competition and the history of these two teams, this will be the most important match of the year. This match is so anticipated that fans have already reserved hotels and flights for the mega event before tickets are available.

According to an Indian Express report, the Ind vs Pak game is expected to be rescheduled, though, because the date clashes with the beginning of the Navaratri. Given the significance of Navaratri in Ahmedabad and around Gujarat, security forces are said to be concerned about security and logistical issues.
