The much-awaited schedule of the ICC Cricket World Cup 2023 was announced on Tuesday, June 27 as the BCCI (Board of Control for Cricket in India) and ICC (International Cricket Council) unveiled the fixtures in Mumbai during an event. The eyes of the fans are once again on the most awaited encounter of the tournament i.e. the India vs Pakistan game to be played on October 15 at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad.
“I feel that now India handles pressure that is why they win whereas Pakistan have a burden that they haven’t won against India. In the 1990s, they were good at dealing with pressure but after 2000, India soak it better. If any player says that they don’t feel pressure, I don’t think it’s right. We used to say it too but at the end of the day, we know it’s an India vs Pakistan game and emotions run high,” Sehwag said during the launch event of the schedule aired on Star Sports.
