ICC World Cup: India to face Pakistan in a high voltage clash

Ahmedabad, While it should be, an India-Pakistan cricket match isn’t always about just the game. The undercurrents, political or otherwise, cast a shadow over the match. And the fact that they have been playing each other only during ICC and ACC events since 2012 from when the bilateral series between the two nations were stopped, adds a touch of intrigue to the contest. And Saturday’s World Cup match between the two hostile neighbours is no exception to that.

Coming as it does at the early stage of the World Cup, the outcome of Saturday’s match is unlikely to have a much bearing on how both teams’ fortunes shape up going deeper in the tournament but they would be happy to get this contest out of the way.
