The most anticipated match of the year will take place on October 23 at Melbourne Cricket Ground when archrivals India and Pakistan play each other in Group 2, Super 12. This match is part of the current T20 World Cup.
Due to the intense competitiveness, the game between the two teams has consistently been a tremendous source of entertainment throughout the years. The last time these two teams played one another was in the Asia Cup 2022, when the squad captained by Rohit Sharma suffered a loss.
Aside from the enthusiasm generated among spectators, the Hollywood and WWE star “The Rock” Dwayne Johnson is the one guy who is truly looking forward to the match between India and Pakistan.
The actor could be seen expressing his enthusiasm for the impending match in a video that was published on Star Sports Twitter. He said that this is more than simply a cricket match; it is time for India vs. Pakistan. When the biggest rivals clash, the world will stand still.
In the T20 World Cup warm-up game on Monday, India defeated Australia by six runs. On October 19, India’s second and final exhibition game will take place against New Zealand. India is grouped with Pakistan, Bangladesh, South Africa, and two qualifiers in Group 2 of the ICC tournament.
