The much-awaited showdown between arch-rivals India and Pakistan is set to unfold in the 12th match of the ICC World Cup 2023 at the iconic Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad on Saturday, October 14.

In contrast, Pakistan embarked on their World Cup journey by defeating the minnows Netherlands by an impressive 81-run margin, and they further demonstrated their prowess by orchestrating a record-breaking run chase against their Asian rivals, Sri Lanka, in their most recent match.

These two cricketing giants faced off twice just last month, with one match washed out due to rain and the other being a one-sided contest in the Asia Cup 2023 held in Colombo, where India emerged victorious in dominant fashion.
