In what is perhaps the matchup of the tournament so far, hosts India will face off against rivals Pakistan at Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad on Saturday. The 2023 Cricket World Cup will see perhaps the most fascinating matchup of the competition so far. India will hold the upper hand, having defeated Pakistan in all 7 of their previous encounters at the Cricket World Cup, with the last one being at the 2019 edition in England. However, this will be an intense matchup, and not just for the atmosphere that the home crowd will create.

Both teams have won their last encounters in this edition of the World Cup, with the hosts defeating Afghanistan and Australia – one of the main favorites to take home the trophy, while Pakistan managed to overcome Sri Lanka and the Netherlands in their last two matches. Pakistan’s bowling department is sure to cause a few worries on the Indian contingent, but the hosts will come into this encounter as favorites thanks to their historical record against their rivals and for the advantage that the home crowd will create.

We therefore predict an Indian win, but Pakistan will have to give it a right go, as their next encounter comes against an Australian side that have underwhelmed themselves, and will look to get their tournament up-and-running. This will certainly be an encounter for the ages, and we can’t wait to see what it has in store for us on Saturday morning!
