Former Indian team captain Sourav Ganguly celebrated his 51st birthday on the previous day. He made a big prediction about the World Cup 2023 on the special occasion of his birthday.

Let us tell you that the World Cup 2023 is going to start from October 5, whose final match will be played on November 19.

Recently, Ganguly has made a big claim about the 5 teams that will reach the semi-finals of the World Cup. During this, Dada has expressed the hope that there could be a clash between India and Pakistan in the semi-finals.

In fact, in the news published in the ICC, in an interview given to Rev Sportz, Sourav Ganguly said on the question asked about the semi-finalist teams that

it is very difficult to say, but Australia, England and India are the three dominant teams, you can never underestimate New Zealand in big matches. I will pick five teams and include Pakistan in it. It would be better if Pakistan qualifies so that we can have an India-Pakistan semi-final at the Eden Gardens.

Along with this, Ganguly said that India had to face defeat to Australia in the final of the World Test Championship, but I was hopeful that they would reverse the record. We sometimes don’t do well in important matches. I think it all happens due to pressure, from which we really need to get out. I hope we will definitely come back in the upcoming World Cup.
