ICC World Cup 2023 Schedule

Program: Tweaks, Latest Date Information, and Revisions to the Fixtures

There is no doubt that the ICC World Cup 2023 is the largest and most anticipated event of the current year. The long-awaited competition will soon be here.

The 2023 World Cup will be held in India. India has hosted the tournament before, but this will be the first time they will do it by themselves. In the past, the South Asian countries, including Pakistan, Sri Lanka, India, and Bangladesh, together hosted the ICC World Cup.

India hosted the World Cup in 1987, 1996, and 2011, but in those years it was a co-host. This major event is being completely hosted by India for the first time. Twelve world cups have been organized. Nonetheless, the first one happened in 1975 in England.

England won the title for the first time in 2019. Australia, on the other hand, had been the most successful team in cricket history and had prevailed in tournaments several times. The West Indies and India are two other teams that have won the competition more than once. They each won it twice.

BCCI Secretary’s Clarifications about Re-Scheduling     

Jay Shah the secretary of BCCI about ICC World Cup 2023

Jay Shah made his comments recently in response to the news. By stating that the BCCI was considering delaying the Indo-Pak match from October 15 to 14, That is supposed to be held in Ahmedabad.

Shah did not clarify whether Pakistan and India were also to be altered. However, he mentioned that boards from numerous other nations had written to the BCCI. Highlighting the logistical difficulties their teams would encounter. So they were asking for modifications. However, he didn’t reveal the identities of those teams.

Jay Shah opinion about amendments

He stated this during a BCCI conference on Thursday in Delhi. “Full member countries of the ICC asked to change the dates in the schedule. As for the convenience of the players, So we will possibly do minor amendments.”

The primary justification for rescheduling the Indo-Pak confrontation is the fact that the provincial police had concerns about ensuring security on October 15. Because it would be the beginning day of the Hindu festive Navratri, which lasts for nine days.

Concerns of Cricket Association of Bengal (CAB)

The CAB has asked the ICC to postpone the match between England and Pakistan. That is scheduled for November 12 in Kolkata. Moreover, according to the most recent sources on August 5, The recent update stated that Kolkata is supposed to host Kali Puja.

That is the second-largest festival in West Bengal after Durga. Therefore, the police officials in Kolkata were unable to provide proper security. So they put their concerns before BCCI. However, up to this point, Snehahish Ganguly, the CAB President, has dismissed all official requests for scheduling changes.

Shah, however, refuted this justification. By asking why the game wouldn’t be played in Ahmedabad on a different day if security was the issue. Moreover he asserted that the matches’ alignment is the real cause. The players might find it challenging to relocate to different places. Hence, continue playing with only a 2-day gap. So it would worsen their performance.

Shah stated that the locations of the encounters would not change under the amended schedule. Yet the intervals between them would.   The only thing that could be changed about the schedule is the interval between games. Including increasing the one-day interval to a three-day interval and reducing the six-day interval to a four- or five-day interval.

ESPNCricinfo reported that the PCB approved the suggested additions to Pakistan’s schedule. Meanwhile, the ICC sent it through a letter to the Pakistan Cricket Board on August 2. It thus resulted in the rescheduling of the Sri Lanka-Pakistan match from October 12 to October 10. Moreover, Pakistan and India will play on October 14 in Ahmedabad.

Ramification of rescheduling the fixtures of the ICC World Cup 2023

Moving the India-Pakistan encounter from October 15 to the 14th was a challenging decision. Since it would surely affect the already schedule matches that day. It is to be noted that ENG vs. AFG and BAN vs. NZ were to be played on 14th. However it resulted in the modification of those matches too. As a result the AFG vs. ENG was moved to October 15. While BAN vs. NZ moved to October 13.
