As India is the host of the ICC World Cup 2023, the Modi government issued Pakistani cricketers visas for the World Cup after multiple delays. Finally, the Pakistani cricket team left for India on Monday and played a warm-up match against New Zealand on Friday. New Zealand beat Pakistan by five wickets in this match however.
The partition of the subcontinent in 1947 made Pakistan and India the worst enemies of each other despite the fact that the two nations had lived together for centuries. Amid the increasing political and religious intolerance in Pakistan and India, any sports event featuring Pakistani and Indian teams grabs all the attention.
