The biggest cricket carnival begins on October 17, and Dubai will host the mother of all battles on October 24. The clash between India and Pakistan is one of the popular matches of the T20 World Cup. Get ready to watch India vs Pakistan live on YuppTV.
India will take on arch-rivals Pakistan to kick start their campaign in the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup after 5 years. The last time both teams faced off each other was during the 2016 T20 world cup in Eden Gardens, Kolkata. India registered a comprehensive win by 6 wickets where rain played spoilsport. Recently, Indian skipper Virat announced to step down from the T20 captaincy after this tourney. Technically, this will be Virat Kohli’s final tournament as T20 captain. BCCI has authorised MS Dhoni as a mentor for this league to guide the young team. Dhoni’s addition to the supporting structure will strengthen the confidence of players. While India is keen on maintaining its unbeaten record against Pakistan, Babar Azam led-Pakistan is committed to rewriting history.
ICC has made arrangements for fans to feel the excitement and live the game. As soon as ICC announced ticket sales for the India vs Pakistan match, cricket fans from worldwide rushed to book tickets online. All seats were sold out in just a few hours, much to the disappointment of cricket fans. This mega event was earlier scheduled to be held in 2020 in India but later postponed to the UAE due to the pandemic. However, the ICC and event host BCCI ensured to provide a safe environment for players and staff. With the second half of the IPL held in the UAE successfully, BCCI is expecting another fruitful event. ICC declared that all UAE venues would be regulated at 70% seated capacity.
