ICC World Cup 2023
As you may already know, the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup 2023 is underway in India, with 10 teams competing for the coveted trophy. The tournament started on October 5 and will end on November 19, with 48 matches being played across 10 venues. This is the first time India is hosting the World Cup since 2011, when they won the title on home soil.
The World Cup features some of the best players and teams in the world, and promises to be a thrilling spectacle of cricket. Defending champions England are looking to retain their crown, but they face stiff competition from hosts India, five-time winners Australia, and other contenders like New Zealand, Pakistan, South Africa, and Sri Lanka. The tournament also features two associate teams, Afghanistan and Netherlands, who have qualified for the first time.
The format of the World Cup is simple: all 10 teams play each other once in a round-robin stage, with the top four teams advancing to the semi-finals. The semi-finals will be held in Mumbai and Kolkata, while the final will be played in Ahmedabad, at the Narendra Modi Stadium, which is the largest cricket stadium in the world with a capacity of 132,000.
So far, the World Cup has witnessed some exciting matches and performances. Here are some of the highlights:
India remains unbeaten after four matches, having defeated Australia, Afghanistan, New Zealand, Bangladesh and Pakistan. Rohit Sharma & Virat Kohli have been in sublime form, scoring one century each. Jasprit Bumrah has been a leading wicket-taker with 11 scalps but he is trailing just behind Mitchel Santner (12) from New Zealand.
South Africa has won three out of four matches, beating Sri Lanka, Australia, and England. They lost to Netherlands by 38 runs in their third match.
Afghanistan has won one out of four matches, beating England by 16 runs in a stunning upset. They lost to India, New Zealand, and Bangladesh.
