The ICC Men’s Cricket 2023 will be the thirteenth edition of the Cricket World Cup, an annual quadrennial ODI tournament featuring men’s national teams, hosted by the International Cricket Council (ICC). The tournament is scheduled to take place in India between 5 October and 19 November 2023, initially planned for February and March 2023 but was delayed due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Hosted by India, the tournament will feature a total of Ten teams, including the reigning champions, England, who will be defending their 2019 ICC Cricket World Cup title. This will mark the first time a men’s cricket World Cup will be hosted exclusively by India, after co-hosting the event with other subcontinent nations on three previous occasions (1987 (India & Pakistan), 1996 (India, Pakistan, & Sri Lanka), and 2011 (India, Sri Lanka, & Bangladesh) ).
The final is set for 19 November 2023 in the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad. The other two semi-finals will be held at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai and Eden Gardens in Kolkata.
The 2023 World Cup will be broadcast live in India by Star Sports and Disney+ Hotstar.
The competition was initially scheduled to take place between 9 February and 26 March 2023, however, in July 2020, it was announced that the tournament had been postponed to October and November due to the disruption of the qualification schedule due to COVID-19. On 27 June 2023, the International Cricket Council (ICC) released the tournament schedule.
The PCB had previously threatened to withhold its participation in the competition after the BCCI declined to send a national team to the Asia Cup scheduled for the year 2023 in Pakistan. However, this was rectified in June 2023, when the Asian Cricket Council (ACC) announced that the Asia Cup would be hosted by the PCB using a hybrid model, with nine out of the 13 matches taking place in Sri Lanka.
The International Cricket Council (ICC) board council has made a number of modifications to the World Cup scheduling process, with the most anticipated match between India and Pakistan being shifted to October 15 due to the commencement of Navratri festivities. Security measures would have been hindered if the match had been held on the original date. The International Cricket Council and the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) have requested the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) to reschedule two of its Group matches, including the match against India at Ahmedabad.
