The International Cricket Council (ICC) has announced the 2023 ODI World Cup in India is being moved from February-March window to October-November of that year to allow a longer qualification period.
The decision has been taken in wake of the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2020 this year being postponed which was originally scheduled to be played in October-November in Australia.
The finale of 2023 ODI World Cup, to be completely held in India for the first time, will now be played on November 26.
Both the 2021 and 2022 Men’s T20 World Cup will be held in the respective October-November windows.
The ICC further said while the 2021 Women’s ODI World Cup in New Zealand will be held as per original schedule, it will continue to to evaluate the situation.
“The IBC Board agreed to continue to monitor the rapidly changing situation and assess all the information available in order to make a considered decision on future hosts to ensure the sport is able to stage safe and successful global events in 2021 and 2022,” ICC said in a statement on Monday.
