The ICC ODI World Cup 2023 will be held in India. Play is scheduled to begin on October 5 of this year. On November 19, at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad. The ICC ODI World Cup final will be played, the country’s first since its historic victory in 2011.
According to the website of ESPNCricinfo, in addition to Ahmedabad. The short list of host cities also includes Bangalore, Chennai, Delhi, Dharamsala, Guwahati, Hyderabad, Kolkata, Lucknow, Indore, Rajkot, and Mumbai. 48 matches total, including three knockout rounds, will be played throughout the course of the 46-day event.
The ICC typically releases the schedules for the World Cup at least a year in advance.
This time it was also holding off until the BCCI received the required approvals from the Indian government. Obtaining a tax exemption for the competition and securing a visa for the Pakistani team. Which hasn’t competed in India outside of ICC events since early 2013 are two crucial difficulties that must be resolved.
According to the website, the BCCI reportedly told the international body that the Indian government will clear visas for the Pakistan contingent at the ICC’s quarterly meetings last weekend in Dubai.
The BCCI is anticipated to inform the ICC shortly on the precise position of the Indian government.
The tax exemption was included in the host’s agreement that the BCCI and the ICC signed in 2014. When India was given the right to host three men’s events: the 2023 ODI World Cup, the 2021 T20 World Cup, and the 2016 T20 World Cup. The 2018 Champions Trophy was later renamed the 2021 T20 World Cup due to the pandemic. According to the contract, the BCCI was “obligated” to assist the ICC (and all of its corporate partners) in obtaining tax exemptions.
The Indian tax authorities informed the ICC last year that the broadcast revenue from the 2023 World Cup would be subject to a 20% tax order (excluding surcharges). The BCCI noted that any tax “incurred” by ICC will be “adjusted” against the Indian board’s profits from ICC’s central revenue pool in a note sent to its members, state associations.
