The schedule for the 2023 World Cup will be released today when PCB accepts the high-voltage match between India and Pakistan at Narendra Modi Stadium
Today is scheduled to see the release of the eagerly anticipated 50-over World Cup schedule. The Pakistan Cricket Team accepted the ICC’s module and tends to only use the venues that have been designated after asking the organisation to modify their schedule at a few different venues. In addition to the matches against Australia and Afghanistan in Bengaluru and Chennai, the PCB expressed reservations over the India vs. Pakistan game in Ahmedabad. The ICC and the BCCI, however, were against these changes. In a ceremony conducted in Mumbai, the schedule for the 2019 World Cup will now be revealed.
A top BCCI representative told InsideSport, “The schedule will be released on Tuesday. There is an ICC occasion. Pakistan has accepted the schedule as set forth. There won’t be any modifications.
The eagerly awaited India vs. Pakistan match will take place at Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad despite some protests from the Pakistan Cricket Team. Pakistan had asked for the venues to be switched to either Kolkata, Bengaluru, or Chennai. PCB stated that their desire was motivated by politics.
From a viewership perspective, the game is crucial for the ICC. Gujarat’s stadium can hold 1,30,000 people. The BCCI does not want to alter the schedule because they feel that all of the tickets for this game will be sold out.
“India Ahmedabad will host Pakistan. Pakistan did submit a request, indeed. However, nothing will change. There is no way ICC would let go of this match because it is the most significant of the entire tournament. Kolkata and Lucknow will host the next major stadium. However, the hosts have the right to choose the location, and Ahmedabad is the best option given the match’s profile and the presence of VVIPs, the source said.
