As the ODI World Cup comes closer and closer each day, teams are leaving no stone unturned in their preparations.

Moreover, fans are highly excited about the marquee event but most of all, it’s the India vs Pakistan clash that they are drooling over.

Both teams will go head-to-head against each other at Ahmedabad’s Narendra Modi Stadium on the 14th of October.

So, before the two of them collide on the field, the ICC has brought forth the list of match officials who will be officiating the high-octane contest.

For starters, the on-field umpires will be Richard Illingworth and Marais Erasmus, and English umpire, Richard Kettleborough will take up the third umpire duties.

Meanwhile, Andy Pycroft is going to be the match referee for this highly-anticipated clash.

On the other hand, the ODI World Cup will start on the 5th of October at Ahmedabad once again as New Zealand and England will take on each other once again.

But, the opening game is not creating quite a stir in the fans as they want to spend huge money.

According to reports, all the hotels are booked in Ahmedabad and even the flight tickets are overpriced at the moment.

However, this isn’t bothering the fans one bit as they want to be there to support India in full capacity.
