Ahead of the India vs. Pakistan clash on Saturday, October 14, the Team India has arrived in Ahmedabad, where they are set to face Pakistan at the Narendra Modi Stadium.

The Indian cricket team made its arrival in Ahmedabad on Thursday evening, building the excitement for the much-anticipated ICC World Cup 2023 showdown against Pakistan at Motera’s Narendra Modi Stadium scheduled for Saturday, October 14. Both sides, led by Rohit Sharma and Babar Azam, have maintained unbeaten records in the tournament, securing victories in their first two ODIs against formidable opponents. India, fresh from an impressive 8-wicket triumph over Afghanistan at the Arun Jaitley Stadium in Delhi, is now gearing up for this crucial clash.

Indian opener Shubhman Gill had already arrived at the venue, adding to the team’s momentum following his recovery from dengue fever.

Pakistan arrived a day ahead of the Indian team, having recently triumphed in a high-scoring thriller against Sri Lanka during their last match in Hyderabad.

Following their convincing victory over Afghanistan on October 11th, Team India surged from fifth to second place on the points table, while Pakistan slipped to third due to a lower net run rate.

In the ODI World Cup history since 1992, India and Pakistan have clashed seven times, with India emerging victorious in every encounter. The Men in Blue will aim to uphold this unbeaten record in Ahmedabad.
