Pakistan and India have not played a bilateral series since 2008. They have been playing each other in the ICC tournaments only for the past decade. Pakistan will, once again, face India next week on October 23rd in the opening match of the ICC T20 World Cup 2023 in Australia.
Pakistan broke the jinx after defeating India in the last year’s T20 World Cup match played in Dubai. They again defeated India in the Asia Cup 2022 match played in Dubai.
BCCI has shown flexibility regarding participation in AsiaCup 2023 scheduled in Pakistan. BCCI will discuss the matter in an official meeting but the clearance from the Government of India will remain a big question. (indian media)
