In anticipation of the World Cup match between India and Pakistan, fans throng hospitals for overnight stays

<p>Prior to Saturday’s World Cup group stage match between India and Pakistan, Ahmedabad has been overcome by a cricket fever, and a trip to the hospitals nearby in the western Indian city amply demonstrates the level of enthusiasm.</p>
<p>Many hospitals have seen an unexpected rush of patients scheduled for overnight stays for check-ups to coincide with the most anticipated World Cup game.<img decoding=”async” class=”alignnone wp-image-233041″ src=”” alt=” during navratri kolu dolls are revered in dindigul tamil nadu download 2023 10 13t” width=”1115″ height=”742″ srcset=” 275w,×100.jpg 150w” sizes=”(max-width: 1115px) 100vw, 1115px” title=”In anticipation of the World Cup match between India and Pakistan, fans throng hospitals for overnight stays 6″></p>
<p>The Ahmedabad Hospitals and Nursing Homes Association has advised against allowing such fans inside its facilities.</p>
<p>“We have requested that our members refuse such solicitations. Hospitals are not intended for those who are not patients, according to its president, Bharat Gadhavi.</p>
<p>Both India and Pakistan entered the match with victories in their first two tournament games.</p>
<p>The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) had to issue an additional 14,000 tickets earlier this month after the first batch for Saturday’s game sold out within an hour of being on sale in August.</p>
<p>After many days of unsuccessful efforts, Ahmedabad resident Hemish Patel and his pals were able to get four tickets for 6,000 Indian rupees ($72.15) apiece.</p>
<p>He said, “We logged into the site with multiple devices.”</p>
<p>“We frequently refreshed the website and were able to make a reservation within 10 minutes of the start of the ticket sale.”</p>
<p>Reselling tickets may bring in up to 25 times their face value, and on Tuesday, municipal police detained four young people for selling bogus tickets. In addition to all of this, Indian Railways will operate two ultra-fast trains between Mumbai and Ahmedabad, and airfare has increased up to four times.</p>
<p>In ODI World Cups, India has a perfect 7-0 record against Pakistan, and despite the rivalry’s Orwellian assumption of serious sport—”war without the shooting”—players from both teams have positive relationships.</p>
<p>The footage of Pakistani fast bowler Shaheen Afridi giving Jasprit Bumrah a present for the Indian’s newborn baby went viral during the Asia Cup match against Sri Lanka last month.</p>
<p>For Indian Liyakat Khan, whose daughter Samiya gets wed to Pakistani fast bowler Hasan Ali, it would be a momentous event.</p>
<p>“In 2021, when my daughter was due with her first kid, my wife traveled to Pakistan. We’ll cross paths again. I’m really excited to hold my grandson, Khan reportedly told the journalists.</p>
