Team India to have ‘Pakistan’ written at the front of Asia Cup 2023 jersey, here’s why
India vs Pakistan cricket match is always an interesting contest and has broken viewership records several times. India and Pakistan will next meet for a match in the Asia Cup 2023 which is taking place in Pakistan and Sri Lanka.
Asia Cup Team India Jersey: Pakistan will be written on Team India’s jersey in Asia Cup 2023. When the Indian cricket team will play in the Asia Cup, the name of Pakistan will be written on the jersey of the team.
Earlier India’s participation in the Asia Cup 2023 was doubtful as the team was reluctant to travel to Pakistan. India will now be participating in Asia Cup 2023 as the team will be playing all the matches in Sri Lanka.
India vs Pakistan Asia Cup 2023 match will undoubtedly be an interesting clash and it will be a first of its kind match for team India. Team India will sport ‘Pakistan’ on the official Asia Cup 2023 jerseys.
India team jersey will have Pakistan written at the front right above the Asia Cup 2023 logo as Pakistan is the primary host for the Continental Cup. India’s Asia Cup 2023 campaign will begin on September 2 as they face Pakistan in their first match. The blockbuster India vs Pakistan match will be played in Sri Lanka’s Kandy.
Luckily, the September 2 clash isn’t the only chance when India will face Pakistan in Asia Cup 2023. If both the rivals manage to make it to Super 4s and the final of Asia Cup 2023, India vs Pakistan matches will be more frequent.
Team India has won the Asia Cup 6 times and Rohit Sharma will try to take the squad to the 7th win this year. Last year, India failed to enter the final of the Asia Cup 2022.
Even as the news could not be independently verified, the Indian team could well be seen wearing that jersey. This is because teams will be required to have the Asia Cup logo on their T-shirts along with the name of the hosts which officially continue to be Pakistan even as the matches are being across Pakistan and Sri Lanka with India matches scheduled entirely in the island nation.
Talking about Asia Cup 2023, the much-anticipated India-Pakistan match is scheduled to be played on September 2 at the Pallekele International Cricket Stadium. There is a chance that as many as three India-Pakistan clashes could be played as part of this competition. While the first IND-PAK game would be a Group A fixture, they can then meet in a Super 4 fixture and then again in the final.
The Super Four, India vs Pakistan match, if it happens will be played on September 10 at the R Premadasa Stadium in Colombo. The final, meanwhile, will be played at the same venue a week later on September 17.
While all matches in Pallekele will start at 1 pm (IST), matches in Colombo are scheduled for a 2 pm (IST) start. The tournament opener in Multan will get underway at 03:30 pm (IST) while the Bangladesh vs Afghanistan match in Lahore will begin at 01:30 pm (IST). The other two matches in Lahore are 03:30 pm (IST) starts.
