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.
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.
