2023 World Cup in India likely to start from October 5, final in Ahmedabad: Report
According to a report, the 2023 ODI World Cup in India is likely to start from October 5, with the final taking place on November 19 at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad.
A report in ESPNcricinfo states that the BCCI has shortlisted at least a dozen venues for the 10-team marquee event, which will see 48 matches including three knockouts over a period of 46 days.
The 11 other shortlisted locations are Bengaluru, Chennai, Delhi, Dharamsala, Guwahati, Hyderabad, Kolkata, Lucknow, Indore, Rajkot and Mumbai, according to the report.
Except for the final match, which is to be played at the world’s largest stadium in Ahmedabad, the BCCI is yet to specify the venue for any of the games.
However, the list of 12 cities does not include Mohali and Nagpur, which recently hosted Test matches against the touring Australia.
India last won the title in 2011 when it hosted the 50-over World Cup.
