BCCI doesn’t want any more hiccups

BCCI has already received flak for changing the ODI World Cup schedule. The highly anticipated match between arch-rivals India and Pakistan was one of the eight matches that were rescheduled. Recently, there were reports that the Hyderabad Cricket Association wanted a change of dates as well. The request was denied by BCCI saying it is tough to change the schedule. 

Hemang Amin, the interim CEO of BCCI, said upon the announcement of the ticketing partner, “As we approached the highly anticipated ICC Cricket World Cup 2023, a pinnacle event in this year’s international calendar, we were thrilled to unveil BookMyShow as the ticketing platform. The commencement of online ticket sales marks a pivotal moment in the lead-up to the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup 2023. With unwavering confidence, we anticipate a seamless ticketing experience aimed at offering fans unobstructed access to the thrilling on-field encounters.” The tournament will feature 58 games in total, with 10 warm-up games and 48 main event games spread over 12 venues.

The opening match of the ICC Cricket World Cup, between New Zealand and England at Ahmedabad’s Narendra Modi Cricket Stadium, is set for October 5. On October 14, the most anticipated match of the World Cup between India and Pakistan will take place at the same location. On November 15 and 16, the semi-final matches will take place in the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai and the Eden Gardens Stadium in Kolkata, respectively. On November 19, the final match will be held in Ahmedabad. Other centres include Lucknow, Chennai, Hyderabad (including the warm-up), Bangalore, Delhi, Dharamshala, and Pune in addition to Ahmedabad, Mumbai, and Kolkata.
