The ICC Cricket World Cup is set to kick off in India on October 5, with a highly anticipated opening match between defending champions England and New Zealand, a rematch of the thrilling 2019 final. The tournament’s format will remain the same as the previous edition, featuring a round-robin format in which all 10 teams will face each other. However, it’s worth noting that this will be the last time this format is used, as the ICC is planning to introduce a new format for the 2027 event. The final is scheduled to take place on November 19 at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad, where the tournament will also commence with the India-Pakistan clash on October 15. Notably, the last three World Cups were all won by the hosting nations, with India in 2011, Australia in 2015 (co-hosted with New Zealand), and England in 2019 emerging as champions. The teams that qualified for this edition were determined by their finishing positions in the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup Super League, a three-year competition featuring 13 teams. India secured their spot as hosts, while New Zealand, England, Bangladesh, Pakistan, Australia, Afghanistan, and South Africa advanced to the World Cup through their top-eight finishes in the Super League. Meanwhile, Sri Lanka and the Netherlands earned their spots via the Cricket World Cup Qualifier, having finished 10th and 13th, respectively, in the Super League standings. Cricket enthusiasts can expect an exhilarating competition that will culminate with the crowning of a new world champion on November 20, 2023. Icc World Cup 2023 Points Table.
