Highlights of the ICC ODI World Cup 2023 schedule: India and Pakistan will play on October 15 in Ahmedabad.

Announcement of the ICC ODI World Cup 2023 schedule Highlights: The ICC released the 2023 ODI World Cup schedule on Tuesday, which has sparked interest. The showcase tournament will feature a total of 10 teams, the first eight of whom have previously qualified through the Cricket World Cup Super League. In addition to other cities, India will perform in Delhi, Chennai, Dharamsala, Kolkata, Pune, and Mumbai.

On October 8 in Chennai, India will start its campaign against Australia. On October 15, the eagerly anticipated match between India and Pakistan will take place at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad. The main tournament will start on October 5 in Ahmedabad with a match between the reigning champions England and New Zealand. The final will take place there in October.

When asked where he is most looking forward to playing at the World Cup, Kohli responded with a smile.

The calendar for the ICC One-Day International World Cup 2023 was unveiled on Tuesday in Mumbai, exactly 100 days before the tournament’s opening match at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad on October 5. The star of Indian cricket, Virat Kohli, offered his initial comments on the programme during the occasion. For the first time, India will be the sole host nation for a 50-over World Cup. They previously shared hosting duties with countries from the subcontinent such Pakistan, Sri Lanka, and Bangladesh in 1987, 1996, and 2011.

The last time India won an ICC trophy was back in 2013 when MS Dhoni led the team to the Champions Trophy victory. Kohli will once again be a key player in India’s quest to end a decade-long wait for an ICC trophy. India were eliminated from the tournament in the previous edition in England after a heartbreaking loss to New Zealand in the semi-final.

The 2011 World Cup champion Kohli chose his home stadium as the World Cup venue he is most looking forward to playing in. The Wankhede will make him feel the same way as another World Cup location, according to India’s No. 3 player.

India defeated Sri Lanka in the World Cup final at the Wankhede Stadium to claim victory. After India had lost the important wickets of Sachin Tendulkar and Virender Sehwag in their 275-run pursuit, Kohli, who entered the batting at No. 4, played a critical knock of 35 to help create a partnership of 83 for the third wicket with Gautam Gambhir.

“I was still fairly young. I observed the seniors’ reactions. I can appreciate what they went through, how wonderful it is for them to play in their home world cup, and how thrilled they will be, Kohli continued.

When India plays Qualifier 2 at the 2023 World Cup, Kohli will experience the same energy once more.
