ICC World Cup 2023 will compete in a quadrangular One Day International (ODI) cricket competition called the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup in 2023. The event is scheduled to take place in India from October 5 to November 19, 2023.
There will be ten national teams competing, including ones from South Africa, Australia, Bangladesh, England, India, Netherlands, New Zealand, Pakistan, and Sri Lanka. West Indies missed out on the tournament for the first time in their history since teams had to proceed through the 2023 Cricket World Cup qualification process. England won the 2019 competition by defeating New Zealand in the championship match.
India has only ever co-hosted the Men’s Cricket World Cup alongside other countries from the Indian Subcontinent three times, in 1987, 1996, and 2011, respectively.. Ten different venues will host this competition. While the final will be staged in Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad, the first and second semifinals will take place at Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai and Eden Gardens in Kolkata.
Qualification For ICC World Cup 2023
Ten teams will compete in this competition, much like the last World Cup. Instead of using the ODI rankings, the ICC Cricket World Cup Super League, which will be played between 2020 and 2023, was used to improve qualification. Although hosts India, which placed fourth in the Super League, was guaranteed a spot, eight of the top 13 teams automatically qualified for the World Cup. The Super League’s final five teams and its top five teams competed in July and July 2023 for the final two berths in the Cricket World Cup.
This will be the first competition in the qualifying round where West Indies, the defending champions, will not be competing because they were unable to advance after losing to Scotland. Ireland and Zimbabwe, two of the four full members competing in the knockout round, failed to qualify; Sri Lanka was the only team to do so. The two associate countries, Scotland and the Netherlands, placed last in the qualifiers for the elimination round. Netherlands won the preliminary round and moved on to the championship round.
The competition will take place in ten stadiums throughout India. While the final will be staged in Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad, the first and second semifinals will take place at Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai and Eden Gardens in Kolkata.
Thanks to financing supplied by the BCCI, the stadiums have been restored. The seating sections, hospitality boxes, drainage system, and grass field at the Himachal Pradesh Cricket Association stadium have all been upgraded. The Wankhede Stadium’s outfield, floodlights, corporate box, and restrooms were all fixed. At Chidambaram Stadium, two wickets were replaced and new floodlights were installed.
All World Cup stadiums have been assigned a perimeter of more than 70 meters by the ICC. The ICC believes that neither the toss nor the “dew factor” wish to affect the result of the game. Additionally, he requested that the pitch curators leave grass on the fields.
ICC World Cup 2023 Anthem
On September 20, “Dil Jashn Bole”—the official anthem of the 2023 Cricket World Cup—was made available. Pritam wrote the music for the song, and Shlok Lal and Saveri Verma wrote the words. Pritam, Nakash Aziz, Sriram Chandra, Amit Mishra, Jonita Gandhi, Akasa Singh, and Charan performed the song. In addition to actors Ranveer Singh and Dhanashree Varma, the song also featured YouTube stars Tanmay Singh (also known as Gamer Scout), Nikunj Lotia (also known as Be Unique), Gaurav Taneja (also known as Flying Beast), Viraj Ghelani, Ruhi Dosani, and presenter Jatin. The crowd, however, did not particularly enjoy the national song.
