Two-time champions India are reportedly set to host the 2023 edition of the ICC World Cup in October-November this year. The upcoming edition of the ICC event is likely to start on October 5 in India as per the reports. Champions in the 1983 and 2011 editions of the quadrennial event, India will hope to end its trophy drought at the grandest stages of them all – the World Cup. India were also the host nation of the World Cup when the Men In Blue last lifted the famous trophy in 2011.
India’s all-format captain Rohit Sharma will lead the two-time champions in the 2023 edition of the World Cup. Rohit Sharma led India to the semi-finals of the ICC T20 World Cup last year. He has also guided India to the final of the ICC World Test Championship final, which will take place ahead of the 50-over World Cup in June this year.
According to the report, there has been a delay in the World Cup schedule due to the tax exemption issue and the visa clearance for the Pakistan side. India were earlier given the hosting rights for the 2016 T20 World Cup, the 2021 T20 World Cup and the 2023 ODI World Cup.
Furthermore, the report added that the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has already assured the ICC about the Indian government clearing the visas of the Pakistan team for the World Cup.
