The Pakistan Cricket team is currently in India, as they have arrived in the cricket-loving nation for the ICC Cricket World Cup 2023, which is set to commence on October 5.
Under the leadership of Babar Azam, the team is treated to exceptional hospitality, with the organizers ensuring that every moment of their stay in India is a delightful experience. Pakistan reached Hyderabad on September 28 and locked horns with New Zealand and Australia in warm-up matches.
In preparation for the tournament, all ten captains of the participating teams gathered for the World Cup 2023 captain’s meet on Wednesday, October 4. During the event, former Indian cricketer Ravi Shastri asked Pakistan’s captain about his thoughts on the renowned Hyderabadi biryani.

Babar responded with a hearty laugh, playfully mentioning that he must have already told a hundred times that they had heard about and loved Hyderabadi biryani.
“I’ve already told 100 times. It was good, I had heard that Hyderabad’s biryani is good and we loved it,” replied the Lahore-born cricketer.
It’s worth emphasizing that this will be the inaugural experience for the 28-year-old cricketer to play in the vibrant cricketing atmosphere of the Indian subcontinent. There’s no denying that Babar has taken the centre stage and is eager to score a lot of runs in this prestigious ICC event, given his current status as the highest-ranked batter in the ODI formats.
With his exceptional skills and consistent performance, the right-handed batter’s presence adds an extra layer of anticipation to Pakistan’s journey in the tournament, promising captivating moments and unforgettable cricketing action.
Pakistan are all set to begin their ODI World Cup 2023 campaign on October 6 with their clash against the Netherlands at the Rajiv Gandhi International Cricket Stadium, Hyderabad.
