ICC Cricket World Cup 2023 Live Stream & TV Channels and All Squads
The 13th edition of the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup is slated for 2023, marking yet another exciting quadrennial ODI cricket tournament under the aegis of the International Cricket Council (ICC). Ten men’s national teams will compete, with England returning as the 2019 champions. Although originally planned for February to March 2023, the event had to be pushed to 5 October through 19 November 2023 due to the impacts of the COVID-19 outbreak. You can get all the details of ICC Cricket World Cup 2023 Live Stream & TV Channels.
This will be a milestone event for India, as it will be the first time they are the sole hosts of the Men’s Cricket World Cup. Previously, they’ve co-hosted with neighboring countries in 1987, 1996, and 2011.
The grand finale is set for 19 November 2023 at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad. Meanwhile, the semifinal clashes will take place at Mumbai’s Wankhede Stadium and Kolkata’s Eden Gardens.
Similar to its predecessor, this World Cup will also showcase 10 teams. However, the qualification pathway underwent a change: teams now had to navigate through the ICC Cricket World Cup Super League, a sequence of matches spanning from 2020 to 2023, rather than solely relying on ODI rankings. From the 13 teams in the Super League, the top eight secured their World Cup spots automatically. Although India, ranking fourth, had a sure shot at participation as the hosts. For the last two spots, June and July 2023 saw a fierce contest: the bottom five teams of the Super League locked horns with the top five associate teams during the 2023 Cricket World Cup Qualifier.
This qualification journey has led to some surprises. Notably, for the first time, former champions West Indies won’t be part of the action, having been edged out by Scotland. Additionally, full member nations Ireland and Zimbabwe didn’t make the cut. In a turn of events, only Sri Lanka, among the four full members in the knock-out qualifiers, advanced. The final ticket to the main event was contested between associate teams, Scotland and Netherlands, with the latter emerging victorious to claim their spot in the competition’s final stage.
