Shoaib Akhtar tweeted

Akhtar tweeted, ‘Whoever thought that the World Cup promo would be complete without the crucial appearance of Pakistan and Babar Azam has really presented himself as a joke. Come on guys, the time has come to grow up a bit. Much has been said about the participation of the Pakistan team in this year’s ODI World Cup. Many things have come to the fore especially during the BCCI vs PCB deadlock regarding the schedule of Asia Cup 2023. Although the Pakistan Board has signed an agreement on its participation in the World Cup, some stakeholders in Pakistan are making conflicting statements on the subject.

Pakistan’s first match on October 6

Nevertheless, the Pakistan team is expected to come to India for the World Cup, whose first match is to be held against the Netherlands on 06 October. This will be the first time after the 2011 World Cup that the matches of this mega event will be held in India. While there is already a lot of pressure on the Indian team to perform on the biggest stage and end the arduous wait for an ICC title, the home event will put huge expectations on the shoulders of Rohit Sharma and Co. Some star players of Team India have recovered from injury and the hopes of their return have increased.

Shahrukh Khan has given voice

The ICC released a two-minute promo video of the World Cup on Wednesday. This video has the voice of Bollywood veteran actor Shah Rukh Khan. Shah Rukh Khan narrates the incredible 2-minute-long video, which focuses on the tournament’s motto and tagline ‘Bas Ek Din Ki Need Hai’.

Narrating the video, Khan talks about the sensations and emotions that arise in the name of the biggest format of all cricket tournaments.

Video is viral on social media

Shah Rukh Khan says, ‘The difference between making history and becoming history: One day. On that day the jersey will be worn and the chest will swell with pride. Passion will triumph over reason, and memories will be etched in that one day. That one day fear will be conquered and obstacles will be faced. From the peak of happiness to the lowest level of pain, it will all be accepted in that one day.’

Many cricketers are coming

The video was posted by the ICC on late Wednesday night along with a picture of Khan standing with the ICC trophy.
