India and Pakistan will compete on October 14 at the Narendra Modi Stadium. Former India player Sunil Gavaskar said that the upcoming ICC World Cup 2023 game between the two arch-rivals is as important as lifting the trophy.
Gavaskar said that fans wait for the mega contest eagerly, and hence, it will be the most important clash of the tournament.
‘We have to win the World Cup, but the game against Pakistan is important. If you ask the fans about the expectations, they would say that you have to win the contest against Pakistan, but we also have a trophy to lift. India are favourites,” Sunil Gavaskar said in the India Today conclave.
Pakistan are in India for the first time after 2016.
