England and New Zealand will compete in the opening World Cup match in Ahmedabad
In Ahmedabad, the Men's 50 Over World Cup will begin and end in 2023. The opening match is set to be between England and New Zealand on October 5, while the championship game will also take place at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Motera on November 19.
Reliable sources claim that Australia will be India's opponent in the team's inaugural game, which is almost certainly going to take place in Chennai. The pivotal match against Pakistan will take place on October 15, a Sunday, same like the championship game on November 19.
After receiving formal clearance from all parties, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) is anticipated to release the schedule shortly, perhaps after the current Indian Premier League (IPL). Naturally, the BCCI, as the host, might have the final word about the times and locations.
Regarding other news, can report that Pakistan has accepted to tour India for the World Cup, despite the ongoing impasse and uncertainty surrounding the Asia Cup. However, it is thought that Pakistan has raised a few reservations.
Najam Sethi, the chairman of the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB), is thought to have visited the ICC office in Dubai during the past few days primarily because the PCB is rumored to be having concerns about playing the important match against India in Ahmedabad.
The PCB chairman appears to be requesting a few tweaks to the locations of its matches as a face-saver after agreeing in principle to travel to India for the quadrennial tournament. However, it has been learned that, should its team advance to the title match, the PCB has agreed to hold the final in Ahmedabad.
Pakistan will play their games in Ahmedabad, Hyderabad, Chennai, and Bengaluru, according the preliminary schedule created thus far. The majority of Pakistan games have taken place at grounds provided by the BCCI in the South Zone, with Chennai receiving a few additional games due to its reputation as a peaceful host with a supportive crowd.
Kolkata, Delhi, Indore, Dharamsala, Guwahati, Rajkot, Raipur, and Mumbai are the designated locations in addition to Ahmedabad and the three southerly centers; Mohali and Nagpur are not included on the list. A semifinal is most likely to be played at the Mumbai Wankhede. Each team will play nine league games, so most, if not all, centers will see at least one India matchup.
There will be a total of 10 teams and 48 games in the World Cup, with Afghanistan, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Afghanistan, England, Australia, and South Africa being the most recent nation to receive a straight admission.
Two former champions, West Indies and Sri Lanka, along with the Netherlands, Ireland, Nepal, Oman, Scotland, UAE, and host Zimbabwe, will participate in a qualification event in June-July to fill the final two berths.
