Cricket or Concert? India vs Pakistan Match Gets A Musical Twist!
Star singers Arijit, Shankar, and Sukhwinder will kick off the pre-match musical show before the much-awaiting India-Pakistan clash, for 1,32,000 fans.
The India vs Pakistan World Cup match happening this Saturday, October 14th. The BCCI has planned a musical gig right before the match starts. And it’s not just any gig; they’ve got top singers like Arijit Singh, Shankar Mahadevan, and Sukhwinder Singh performing!
The show will kick off at 12:30 PM, an hour before the toss. Arijit Singh will start the show, and then Shankar Mahadevan and Sukhwinder Singh will take over. The toss is at 1:30 p.m., and the game will start at 2 p.m.
This all is happening at the world’s largest cricket stadium, the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad. Last week, the stadium was almost empty during the England vs New Zealand match. But this time, it’ll be full—like, 1,32,000 people full!
Both India and Pakistan have been in good form. India defeated Australia and Afghanistan, while Pakistan beat the Netherlands and Sri Lanka. And Indian fans can’t forget, that India has beaten Pakistan in all seven previous World Cup matches.
It’s a good way to pump up the crowd! Music has the power to bring people together, and these prominent musicians Arijit, Shankar, and Sukhwinder are likely to set the mood of audiences.
But there’s another side to consider. Some people are wondering why are they adding a music show to a cricket match. The focus should be solely on the game, given how high-stakes it is. The organizers should also manage major safety measures for such a big crowd.
Let us know whether you’re excited about the music or just want to get straight to the cricket, Saturday is going to be a day to remember for cricket fans in Narendra Modi Stadium in Gujarat!
