After a Rescheduling, the ICC ODI World Cup 2023 will Feature Three Matches on a Single Day

After a rescheduling, the ICC ODI World Cup 2023 will feature three matches on a single day.  The highly anticipated India vs. Pakistan match has been rescheduled to October 14, one day earlier than its initial date, complicating the rescheduling of the ICC ODI World Cup 2023. This alteration has resulted in a cluster of matches that must now be rearranged.

The much-anticipated 50-over World Cup match between India and Pakistan has been rescheduled for October 14 rather than October 15. The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has approved the Board of Control for Cricket in India’s (BCCI) request to modify the match date.

The new calendar highlights October 14 as a standout day at the World Cup 2023, with three matches planned. Aside from the India-Pakistan encounter, there will be a day game in Chennai between Bangladesh and New Zealand, and an afternoon match in Delhi between defending champions England and Afghanistan. On most days, a single game is arranged, however on rare occasions, two matches are scheduled.

Not only has the Pakistan-India match at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad been delayed, but so has Pakistan’s match against Sri Lanka in Hyderabad. The game versus Sri Lanka has been rescheduled for October 10 instead of October 12.

The rationale for rescheduling the India-Pakistan game was to avoid it clashing with the first day of Gujarat’s important Navratri festival, which is very important to the region.

The altered schedule gives Pakistan a three-day break between matches against Sri Lanka and India, rather than the previous two days. The planned alteration to the match is claimed to have been approved by Sri Lanka Cricket.

Sri Lanka will have a short turnaround after their first World Cup encounter against South Africa on October 7 in Delhi. Following their match against Pakistan, they will play Australia in Lucknow on October 16.
