Men’s Cricket World Cup 2023 Schedule-Recent Updates
The postponement of the eagerly awaited India vs. Pakistan match in the ICC World Cup was mainly caused by concerns about the beginning of the Navratri festival. The event was originally scheduled for October 15, but carrying out it on that date presented practical issues for security measures. As a result, the ICC and BCCI contacted the PCB about delaying two of its group matches, including the match against India in Ahmedabad.
As a result, the India-Pakistan match, which was originally planned for October 15, may now be pushed up a day to October 14.
The event will begin on October 5 at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad. The BCCI Secretary Jay Shah has also stated that the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup 2023 final will be held at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad.
Also, the semi-final matches are scheduled as follows: the first semi-final will be held at Mumbai’s Wankhede Stadium, and the second semi-final will be held at Kolkata’s historic Eden Gardens, increasing the tournament’s excitement and social standing.
