India and Pakistan square off at the world’s largest cricket stadium, the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad, on Saturday in a World Cup 2023 match. This will be the 8th World Cup meeting between the two bitter adversaries, who only play against each other in international tournaments due to longstanding political tensions. When India take on Pakistan, it is more than just a game. Fans have been eager to watch the contest unfold and have even booked beds in city hospital wards after hotels ran out of rooms.

Last month, India hammered Pakistan by 228 runs in their Asia Cup Super Four clash.

Pakistan have never won against India in ODI World Cup with the seven previous meetings all going in favour of their arch-rivals.
