The Pakistan cricket team is currently riding high on the backs of their series win against New Zealand and Bangladesh in a tri-series. The euphoric rise of Pakistan is something that is one for the ages. In the previous edition of the World Cup, Babar Azam's Pakistan defeated India by a margin of 10 wickets. This was the opening game for both India and Pakistan in the UAE edition of the World Cup. The Pakistan selectors were recently criticized for the squad that they selected for the World Cup. Their middle order certainly looks in turmoil and if Babar or Rizwan fail to fire for Pakistan, they certainly will face difficulties as they go deep into the tournament. Pakistan will play against India on October 23, 2022, at the Melbourne Cricket Ground and they will look to repeat their heroics from last year.
