List of 12 cities shortlisted for ODI World Cup in India?
The 2023 ICC Cricket World Cup final is scheduled to take place on November 19 at Ahmedabad’s Narendra Modi Stadium, the world’s largest cricket stadium.
The tournament will start on October 5 and feature 10 teams playing in the same format as the 2019 edition, with a total of 48 matches spread across 12 cities in India.
The cities shortlisted to host the event are Ahmedabad, Bengaluru, Chennai, Delhi, Dharamsala, Guwahati, Hyderabad, Kolkata, Lucknow, Indore, Rajkot, and Mumbai.
The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) is yet to confirm the venue details due to concerns over the monsoon season in the country.
During the ICC’s quarterly meetings in Dubai last weekend, the BCCI reportedly assured the global cricket body that Pakistan teams would be granted visas by the Indian government.
The BCCI had also previously agreed to assist the ICC and its commercial partners in obtaining tax waivers for the upcoming 2023 World Cup.
However, Indian tax authorities had informed the ICC last year that they would be charged a 20% tax on broadcast revenue from the tournament, excluding surcharges.
The BCCI has now stated that any such tax incurred by the ICC will be adjusted against India’s board revenues from the ICC central revenue pool.
