Following Complaints, More Changes to the ODI World Cup 2023 Schedule are Expected

Following complaints, more changes to the ODI World Cup 2023 Schedule are expected. The International Cricket Council (ICC) World Cup 2023 ODI schedule was altered further after “several Full Member countries” expressed reservations about specific fixtures. The statement was made by Jay Shah, secretary of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI), who confirmed that the schedule for the highly anticipated tournament, which will begin in India on October 5, will be changed.

The news comes just a month after the BCCI and ICC published the long-awaited itinerary for the event, which will begin at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad.

Among the objections received, the Cricket Association of Bengal (CAB) recently requested that the ICC recce team change the November 12 match between Pakistan and England. The request was made since the game clashed with the important Kali Puja festival, West Bengal’s second-largest celebration. Due to the prominence of the festival, a significant police contingent would be deployed around the city to ensure law and order, making it impossible to provide security officers for Eden Garden’s job.

While CAB President Snehasish Ganguly denied sending the request, Indian media stated that security concerns were raised by Kolkata Police, necessitating a possible reschedule. A top CAB official confirmed the meetings with the ICC and BCCI inspection teams, emphasising the necessity of resolving security concerns before the match.

There were also speculations of possible modifications to the India-Pakistan match, which happened on the first day of Navratri, another important festival celebrated in Gujarat with large crowds. However, Jay Shah dismissed those rumours, stating that the match’s venue in Ahmedabad would be unaffected.

Jay Shah stated that the ICC and BCCI are now discussing how to address the logistical issues identified by Full Member countries. Some games with two-day gaps between matches may be changed to allow players additional rest and recuperation time, resulting in improved performance and reduced travel weariness.

“We are working out with the ICC, and we should be able to clear it in two or three days,” Jay Shah said, referring to ongoing attempts to finalise the amended schedule.
