Eden Gardens Kolkata Stadium for ICC Cricket World Cup 2023 India

Eden Gardens Kolkata, ICC Cricket World Cup 2023 India is one of the venues selected for ICC CWC 2023. As things stand, the forthcoming ICC ODI World Cup 2023’s centrepiece match between India and Pakistan is quite likely to be played at Kolkata’s famous Eden Gardens stadium. 

The MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai has also been considered as a potential venue for the high-stakes game, according to reports, thus the location is not yet official. Chennai can be given the match if there are any problems hosting the important match in Kolkata.

The 2016 T20 World Cup match between India and Pakistan was one of several matches between the two teams that Eden Gardens had previously hosted. Virat Kohli played a magnificent innings of 55* as the MS Dhoni-led team overcame the Men in Green by six wickets.

The controversy surrounding Pakistan’s participation in the World Cup on Indian soil, however, has not yet been resolved. The Najam Sethi-led Pakistan Cricket Board had earlier requested that Bangladesh be considered as a potential location for Pakistan’s World Cup matches. Even though it is quite improbable that this would happen, conversations are still ongoing because Pakistan and India have not yet reached a consensus on this.

Twelve locations have reportedly been chosen to host every World Cup game in the meantime. While Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad has been nominated to host the championship game, each site is expected to stage four matches.

The Eden Gardens in Kolkata and the Wankhede in Mumbai are two possible locations for the World Cup semifinal matches. Chennai had previously been a contender, but it appears Eden is currently marginally ahead, a BCCI source told PTI on Monday.

The November weather in Chennai, where there is always a potential of rain, may be one of the causes. Prior to Tuesday’s official announcement, twelve hosting organisations were invited to a meeting in Mumbai on Monday to work out the specifics and choose the locations.
