New Decision on India-Pakistan World Cup 2023

The much-anticipated India-Pakistan match at the 2023 Cricket World Cup has been thrown into doubt after Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) chairman Ramiz Raja said that his team would not travel to India for the tournament.

Raja made the announcement on Monday, citing security concerns as the reason for Pakistan’s decision. He said that the PCB had been assured by the Indian government that the team would be safe, but that he was not convinced.

“We have been assured by the Indian government that our team will be safe, but we are not convinced,” Raja said. “We have seen what happened in the past, and we are not taking any chances.”

The India-Pakistan match is always one of the most anticipated matches in any cricket tournament, and its absence from the 2023 World Cup would be a major disappointment for fans.

The PCB has not yet said whether it will withdraw from the World Cup altogether, or whether it will try to find a neutral venue for the India-Pakistan match.

The ICC has not yet commented on the PCB’s decision.

Update (July 13, 2023): The ICC has announced that Pakistan will not be withdrawing from the 2023 Cricket World Cup. However, the India-Pakistan match will be moved to a neutral venue. The match will now be played in Sri Lanka.

The decision was made after the ICC met with both the PCB and the BCCI. The ICC said that it was important for the match to be played, but that it also had to take into account the security concerns of both teams.

The match will be played on October 15, 2023, at the R. Premadasa Stadium in Colombo, Sri Lanka.
