After the Hyderabad Cricket Association voiced worries about safety, the ICC World Cup 2023 schedule could be adjusted further.

There have been numerous adjustments to the ICC World Cup 2023 schedule in recent years, but it appears that more alterations are possible. The Hyderabad Cricket Association (HCA) has expressed concern to the Board For Cricket Control in India (BCCI) over the feasibility of hosting World Cup games on consecutive days. New Zealand and the Netherlands will play on October 9 at the Rajiv Gandhi Stadium in Hyderabad, and Sri Lanka and Pakistan will meet the next day.

The Hyderabad Police have voiced security worries about the lack of a break between the two games, with particular emphasis being given to the matchup between Pakistan and Sri Lanka.

Since the October 12 encounter between India and Pakistan at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad has been moved to the October 14 date, this game has been moved forward to give Pakistan more time to recover.

Due to concerns over security, the World Cup schedule had to be significantly altered to avoid having India vs. Pakistan match on the first day of the Navaratri festival in Gujarat. The Pakistan-England match originally planned for November 12 in Kolkata was moved to November 11 due to the festival of Kali Puja.

On October 8, the Indian cricket team will begin its season in Chennai against Australia. Tickets for the World Cup are scheduled to go on sale on August 25.
