World Cup 2023 Schedule: Why is ICC CWC 2023 Schedule so delayed?
World Cup 2023 Schedule – The schedule for the World Cup 2023 is eagerly awaited by cricket fans worldwide. With just five months remaining until the start of the 50-overs World Cup 2023 tournament in October, there is a sense of anticipation among fans. However, the excitement is somewhat dampened due to the fixture calendar still being kept under wraps and the key title contenders being preoccupied with test cricket.
Both the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) and the International Cricket Council (ICC), the tournament’s governing body, have assured fans that the dates and venues for the ICC 2023 World Cup will be announced in due course. As fans eagerly await the schedule, it is expected that the organizers will unveil the details soon, allowing fans and teams to plan for the much-anticipated tournament.
A senior official from the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) confirmed ongoing discussions with the International Cricket Council (ICC) regarding the World Cup 2023. They assured that the dates and venues would be announced soon.
Indian media sources have indicated that the announcement is expected to come after the conclusion of the Indian Premier League (IPL) season on May 28. While the limited information available may frustrate fans who are planning to attend the tournament in India, it is unlikely to greatly impact the preparations of the eight teams that have already qualified.
The organizers are working diligently to finalize the details and ensure a successful event. It is important for them to consider various factors and coordinate with the ICC to provide a comprehensive schedule that meets the requirements of all stakeholders. Fans and teams can look forward to the forthcoming announcement, which will provide clarity and excitement for the upcoming World Cup.
The upcoming ICC World Cup 2023 is scheduled to be held from October 5 to November 19. The tournament will kick off with an exciting clash between the previous edition’s champion, England, and the runner-up, New Zealand, on October 5 at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad. The grand finale will also take place at the same venue on November 19.
As per the latest reports, India’s campaign in the World Cup will commence with a match against Australia.

According to reports, a total of 12 Indian cities have been chosen as host cities for the tournament, including Ahmedabad, Kolkata, Delhi, Mumbai, Hyderabad, Chennai, Bangalore, Indore, Dharamshala, Guwahati, Raipur, and Rajkot.
