The most likely dates for the World Cup 2023 are October 5 and November 19. The ODI World Cup 2023 is anticipated to begin on October 5 and conclude on November 19. Additionally, according to information obtained by ESPNcricinfo, the world’s largest cricket stadium in Ahmedabad will serve as the final venue for BCCI, the 10 team event’s host, which has narrowed its options to at least a dozen locations.

Bengalur, Chennai, Delhi, Dharamsala, Guwahati, Hyderabad, Kolkata, Lucknow, Indore, Rajkot, and Mumbai are also on the shortlist in addition to Ahmedabad, 48 matches total, will be played throughout the course of the 46 day event.

Aside from the championship match, neither the BCCI nor the two or three cities where teams will play the warm-up games have yet announced the locations of any of the games. 

The difficulties caused by the monsoon season ceasing at various points in various parts of India are the cause of the delay in deciding on the locations.

The ICC typically releases the World Cup schedules at least a year in advance, but this time it was also holding off until the BCCI received the required approvals from the Indian government. This involves two major concerns: obtaining a tax exemption for the competition and securing visa permission for the Pakistani team, which hasn’t competed in India since early 2013 outside of ICC matches.

The Indian tax authorities told the ICC last year that the broadcast proceeds from the 2023 World Cup will be subject to a 20% tax order (excluding of surcharges). The BCCI noted that any taxes “incurred” by ICC will be “adjusted” against the Indian board’s profits from ICC’s central revenue pool in a memo sent to its members, state associations.

The ICC’s expected broadcasting revenue from the 2023 World Cup was indicated in the memo by the BCCI as USD 533.29 million. It claimed that a tax order of 10.92% on that would have a “financial impact” on it of around UDS 58.23 million (the BCCI’s note put the amount as USD 52.23 million, which seems to be a typo given the percentages listed).
