India vs Pakistan: The stage is set for an electrifying encounter as India gears up to take on Pakistan in their third ODI World Cup 2023 match. The anticipation surrounding this contest is already soaring. Pakistan is determined to redeem themselves after a devastating loss in the Asia Cup 2023, while India eagerly anticipates facing their arch-rivals once again and maintaining their winning streak against Pakistan on home turf.
India vs Pakistan
The Indian Meteorological Department (IMD) has forecasted clear skies for the day, indicating an uninterrupted clash between India and Pakistan (IND vs PAK). IMD Gujarat assures that even in the event of light or moderate rain, it should be confined to specific areas and not disrupt the match. However, the IMD has issued a caution to the residents of Ahmedabad regarding deteriorating air quality. The weather department highlights that increasing pollution levels could significantly impact individuals in sensitive groups, such as children and the elderly. Given that the India vs. Pakistan match is sold out, with an expected influx of around 1,30,000 people, it’s important to consider the potential problems poor air quality may pose for susceptible groups.
