Mumbai: The thrill of World Cup 2023 is going to start from today. The first match of the World Cup will be played between England and New Zealand. The last World Cup final was played between these two teams. ICC held a meeting of all captains in Ahmedabad before the World Cup. All ten teams had captains in the event. Babar Azam, the captain of the Pakistan team, won everyone’s hearts by talking about how he felt when he came to India. The Indians welcomed the arch-rivals as guests.
What did Babar Azam say?
We didn’t feel like we were in a foreign country for the past week. When I went to India, I thought I would feel lonely, but the people of India have given us a lot of love and I hope we will get the same love in the future. Babar Azam said that he liked Hyderabad biryani very much.
What did Rohit Sharma say?
It is a matter of pride for me to lead India in World Cup 2023. There will be pressure on us but the team is used to it now. The preparation we have done will benefit us in the World Cup. Every match is going to be important for us. Rohit Sharma said that the lack of practice matches will not make that much of a difference, on the contrary, the players got time to relax.
There are 10 teams in this year’s World Cup and this tournament will be held at stadiums in ten cities in India. There will be 48 matches in the World Cup and the matches will be held in the cities of Chennai, Delhi, Pune, Ahmedabad, Dharamshala, Pune, Lucknow, Mumbai, Kolkata, Bangalore and Ahmedabad.

Australia, England, New Zealand and Pakistan are also strong teams in this race. Along with that, the teams of Netherlands, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh and South Africa will not be underestimated.
