Pakistan can possibly play India at the London Olympic Stadium in the 2019 ICC Cricket World Cup set to be held in summer, Daily Mail reported.

The London Stadium is being considered to host two of the 48 World Cup matches, which will be played across 12 venues.

One of these matches can be a high-voltage Pakistan India encounter, in front of a sell-out, 60,000 crowd.

The home side England is expected to feature in the other match at the stadium which hosted the 2012 Games.

The match can attract the huge South Asian population in the United Kingdom and will definitely be attended by more spectators than any match played in England yet.

Steve Elworthy, managing director of the 2019 World Cup, has traveled to New Zealand to study the best technology for drop-in cricket pitches that will be incorporated for the London Stadium.

Pakistan and India, who are traditional arch-rivals, have not played much cricket against each other in the recent years due to political tensions between the countries.

The neighbours, when they face each other in the international tournaments, attract eyeballs of millions of cricket fans around the world.
