When will ICC World Cup 2023 schedule release?

ICC unveils Navarasa-inspired brand identity for 2023 Men’s Cricket World Cup in India

The International Cricket Council (ICC) Chief Executive Geoff Allardice has assured cricket fans that the full schedule for the men’s 2023 ODI World Cup in India will be released as soon as possible. With the tournament just four months away, the venues and fixtures are yet to be confirmed, unlike the last two World Cups where schedules were announced over a year in advance.

ICC World Cup 2023 schedule to be released timely

Allardice mentioned during an interview on the BBC’s Test Match Special that the ICC might receive the schedule from the hosts soon and they are currently consulting with participating teams and broadcasters before making it public. The ICC works closely with the hosts in organizing events, which involves extensive consultation within the cricket system and with governments to ensure a successful tournament.

Although ESPNcricinfo previously reported that the World Cup is likely to take place from October to November, the ICC has not officially confirmed any dates. BCCI Secretary Jay Shah had hinted at unveiling the schedule during the ongoing World Test Championship (WTC) final, but Allardice did not commit to a specific timeline.

When questioned about Pakistan’s reluctance to play in India and its potential impact on the delay in announcing fixtures, Allardice refrained from providing a direct answer. He emphasized that the ICC events team is experienced in organizing cricket events worldwide and focuses on what they can control. Once they have the necessary information, they will swiftly progress with the planning.

Cricket enthusiasts eagerly await the release of the World Cup schedule, hoping for an exciting and well-executed tournament in India.
