India will host Pakistan's cricket squad



For the first time in seven years, India will host Pakistan's cricket squad for the 50-over World Cup, the International Cricket Council announced on Tuesday.

Holders England and New Zealand will face off in the tournament's opening match on October 5 at Ahmedabad's largest cricket stadium, which will also serve as the site of the championship game.

After several weeks of delay brought on by Pakistan's refusal to visit India, the schedule was finally released, but only after Pakistan agreed to host the Asia Cup in September under a hybrid format.

After the hosts begin their campaign against Australia on October 8, the most anticipated match between rivals India and Pakistan will be contested there on October 15.
