Pakistan India rivalry may spoil the T20 World Cup inaugural show at Australia

ISLAMABAD - Pakistan India rivalry may spoil the T20 World Cup inaugural show at Australia.

The T20 Cricket World Cup will be played in Australia in October 2020. The mega event is fast approaching and cricket enthusiasts are anticipating thrilling contests.

However, the organizers of the T20 Cricket World Cup are unsure about holding a warm-up match between India and Pakistan.

According to Nick Hockley, the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the International Cricket Council 2020 T20 World Cup, the organizing body has not yet scheduled a warm-up match between India and Pakistan.

Notably, India and Pakistan will not encounter each other during the first round of the world cup.

Nick Hockley said:

Wherever I go, I am asked about the Pakistan and India encounter. We have still not taken a decision over their warm-up match in the event. The traditional rivalry becomes the focus of fans around the world.

Hockley acknowledged the magnitude of the traditional rivalry between India and Pakistan. There’s a possibility that India and Pakistan might go head to head in either the semifinals or the finals.
