Team India enjoyed a grand reception in Lucknow before their ICC Cricket World Cup 2023 clash against England, as they were welcomed in traditional style by the hotel staff.

On October 25th, the Indian cricket squad arrived in Lucknow for their upcoming clash with defending champions England in the 2023 World Cup. The match is set to take place at Lucknow’s BRSABVE Cricket Stadium on Sunday. As they reached their Lucknow hotel, the team was warmly welcomed by the hotel staff in a traditional fashion, a heartwarming moment captured and shared by the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) on their social media platform X (formerly Twitter).

The Chaudhary Charan Singh International Airport in Lucknow also echoed with the cheers of enthusiastic fans who gave Team India a spirited reception. The BCCI, sharing a video of the unforgettable welcome at the hotel, playfully announced, “Hello Lucknow, Team India has arrived for their upcoming CWC23 clash against England.”

The video quickly went viral, attracting significant attention and comments from fans.

The Indian cricket team, led by Rohit Sharma, enters the match against England as the sole unbeaten side in the ongoing 2023 World Cup. India tops the World Cup standings with five wins in five games, including their recent victory over New Zealand, where Virat Kohli’s impressive innings of 95 led them to a four-wicket win while chasing a target of 274. Pacer Mohammad Shami earned the Player of the Match title for his outstanding five-wicket haul, finishing with figures of 5/54.

In contrast, England’s World Cup title defense has been lackluster, with just one win in four matches under Jos Buttler’s leadership. They currently occupy the eighth position on the World Cup points table and are set to face Sri Lanka in Bengaluru.
