ICC WC2023

The 2023 ICC Cricket World Cup will be the 13th edition of the mens Cricket World Cup, scheduled to be hosted by India from 9 February to 26 March 2023.

 

This was decided at an International Cricket Council meeting held in London. This will be the first time the competition is held completely in India. India has co-hosted the World Cup three times in the past, 1987 with Pakistan, 1996 with Pakistan and Sri Lanka and 2011 with Sri Lanka and Bangladesh.

As with the previous edition, the tournament will feature ten teams. The main route for qualification will be the 2020–22 ICC Cricket World Cup Super League tournament. For the World Cup, the top seven sides plus the hosts (India) from the thirteen competitors in the league will qualify automatically. The remaining five teams, along with five associate sides, will play in the 2022 Cricket World Cup Qualifier, from which two sides will go through to the final tournament.

The Cricket World Cup has been hosted most number of times by England. England has hosted the tournament five times, solely in 1975, 1979 and 1983 and co-hosted in 1999 and 2019 with Ireland, Netherlands, Scotland and Wales. The 2011 World Cup final was held at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai, where India lifted the World Cup trophy 28 years after the first triumph and it became the first host nation to win the tournament.The 2023 World Cup is being held in India. Usually the host country have won the last 3 World Cups. The Cup was won by England in 2019, Australia in 2015 and India in 2011. I wish India will wins the 2023 World Cup.
