The Indian and Australian teams have landed in Chennai, all set for their 2023 World Cup opener at Chepauk’s MA Chidambaram Stadium on Sunday, October 8.

Footage surfaced from Chennai International Airport, revealing the Indian team’s arrival amid a bustling scene of tight security, enthusiastic fans, and media coverage. Following a brief delay, the Australian squad, including Pat Cummins, followed suit.

Videos posted on the social media platform X (formerly Twitter) showcased the arrival of Indian cricketers such as Virat Kohli, Hardik Pandya, and Ravindra Jadeja at the airport, generating buzz among fans.

Under the captaincy of Rohit Sharma, India will commence their World Cup journey by facing Pat Cummins’ side at Chennai’s MA Chidambaram Stadium on October 8. Notably, the hosts clinched a 2-1 series triumph over Australia in the recent ODI series last month.

India’s warm-up matches against England and the Netherlands faced disruptions due to rain in Guwahati and Thiruvananthapuram. Nevertheless, concerns are minimal as India has been actively engaged in ODI cricket over the past two months, ensuring their preparedness for the upcoming tournament.
