In a candid conversation, cricket legend Mahela Jayawardene sat down and discussed the highly anticipated India vs. Pakistan clash in the ICC Cricket World Cup 2023. The stage is set for this monumental encounter, with Ahmedabad as the backdrop and a staggering crowd of 100,000 cricket enthusiasts in attendance.

India and Pakistan will face each other on 14th October at the Narendra Modi International Stadium, Ahmedabad. The IND Vs PAK clash is considered a great ‘spectacle’ in World Cricket and everyone eagerly waits for this match in any tournament, but this match at the stage of the ICC Cricket World Cup, can’t get any better.

India is currently unbeaten against Pakistan in ICC ODI World Cups having won seven previous contests. This will be the eighth time both nations will face each other in the World Cup and Mahela Jayawardene gave us a neutral’s perspective as to what to expect from the riveting encounter between India and Pakistan.

“It’s going to be tough to set that up. I think the build-up is always going to be amazing. I mean, the uniqueness is that India and Pakistan don’t play that often. I mean, Ahmedabad, what a venue. It’s going to be an amazing fixture. I think both teams will feel that pressure on the World Cup stage. As neutrals, we’re going to enjoy that encounter,” said Mahela Jayawardene about the India Vs Pakistan match.

India Has Experienced Players While Pakistan Is A Young Team, Says Mahela Jayawardene

Mahela Jayawardene talked about Pakistan’s young team and the talent they possess, while he mentioned that India has a lot of experienced players on the side. He also talked about how India can be very dangerous in home conditions.

“I think Pakistan have a very good young team, which has been together for some time. They’ve been playing some really good, consistent cricket. And India has experienced players and the same kind of strength. In home conditions, they’re a formidable opponent. So, I’m looking forward to that,” Mahela Jayawardene concluded.

India and Pakistan recently clashed in the Asia Cup where both the teams encountered each other twice. The First match was washed out due to rain after the first Innings while the second match was won by India. Pakistan will look forward to settling the scores with India and getting their first-ever victory against their arch-rivals in the ICC ODI World Cup.
