World Cup 2023
Illustration of the concept

Schedule details for the ODI World Cup 2023 are likely to be released by the International Cricket Council (ICC) on June 27.

The two most likely candidates to host the 2023 World Cup semifinals are the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai and the Eden Gardens in Kolkata. One of the greatest games in the ODI tournament may not be hosted by the MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai, another site with a long history. It’s possible that the World Cup semi-finals may be held at either Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai or Eden Gardens in Kolkata. A BCCI source told PTI on Monday that while both Eden and Chennai had been strong contenders, Eden had recently pulled ahead.

“The constant threat of rain in November in Chennai could be a contributing factor.” On Monday, Mumbai hosted a meeting of the twelve hosting organizations to finalize the arrangements and prepare for Tuesday’s announcement.

If India advances to the semi-finals, their home game will be played in Mumbai.

Eden Gardens hosted the 1987 World Cup final between Australia and England, which Australia won, while the Wankhede Stadium was the site of the 2011 World Cup final, which India won under Mahendra Singh Dhoni after a 28-year title drought.

This year’s World Cup will include 10 teams. India, which will be hosting the tournament, has automatically qualified through the 2020–2023 ICC Cricket World Cup Super League, as have Afghanistan, Australia, England, Bangladesh, New Zealand, Pakistan, and South Africa.

The World Cup Qualifiers, which are presently being contested in Zimbabwe, will send two more teams to the World Cup.

Ireland, Nepal, the Netherlands, Oman, Scotland, the United Arab Emirates, the United States of America, and hosts Zimbabwe will all be competing in the Qualifiers alongside former champions Sri Lanka and the West Indies.

There will be 45 total matches played at the World Cup in India, with each of the 10 countries playing each other once.

The semi-finals and final will follow these.
