Ahead of India vs Pakistan ICC World Cup match at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad, South Africa tops the points table.
On Thursday, Australia suffered a humiliating 134-run defeat against South Africa at the Ekana Stadium, marking the Aussies’ biggest defeat by runs in ODI World Cups. It was the first instance since 1992 that the five-time champions suffered consecutive losses at the start of a World Cup campaign, the first being against India in Chennai.
Currently, the top four spots on the ICC World Cup points table are occupied by South Africa, New Zealand, India, and Pakistan.
It’s worth mentioning that the top four teams on the points table after the completion of 45 matches in the tournament will advance to the ICC World Cup semi-finals scheduled for November 15 and 16, 2023.
Till now, ten matches have been played in the tournament. However, no matches have been played between India and Pakistan in the World Cup 2023 so far.
The much-awaited match between India and Pakistan is set to take place on Saturday in Ahmedabad, with all preparations completed.
India’s team has secured hard-fought victories against Australia and Afghanistan, while the Pakistan team maintained their winning streak by defeating the Netherlands and Sri Lanka in World Cup matches played at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium in Hyderabad.
