“I want Afghanistan to defeat Pakistan in the ICC World Cup 2023.” Virendar Sehwag stated. Ten teams will compete against one another in the group round of the next ICC World Cup 2023. Virender Sehwag, a former player, wants to see upsets in the competition.

But he doesn’t want India to suffer a defeat to a lesser opponent. “I want the World Cup to feature upsets. While New Zealand should defeat Australia, Afghanistan should defeat Pakistan. If South Africa surprised England, it would be wonderful. However, I don’t want India’s name to be on the list, he remarked.

On October 8 in Chennai, the Men in Blue will play their first game against Australia. The two recently squared off in a three-match ODI series, which Rohit Sharma‘s squad ultimately won.

Sehwag, added that the rivalry between India and Pakistan captivates the attention of the entire world and that this match is constantly on everyone’s mind.

“Everyone is aware that the India vs. Pakistan game will be the center of attention. At a Tuesday event hosted by the ICC to reveal the Cricket World Cup schedule, Sehwag declared, “I am prepared to engage Shoaib Akhtar in a social media battle during that game. 

He added that Pakistan’s World Cup record against India was spotless because the former had not lost a match against the latter in the tournament’s 50-over format.

The 44-year-old challenged India to replicate Sachin Tendulkar’s 2011 feat and win the World Cup for Virat Kohli, who will likely participate in his final major international competition.

“We competed in the 2011 World Cup for Tendulkar. We won the World Cup, and Sachin Paaji had a fantastic departure.

“Virat Kohli is currently Sachin Tendulkar, in my opinion. He is the one right now based on the way he acts, speaks, cares for people, and plays cricket. Everyone wants Virat Kohli to win this World Cup,” he continued.
