The ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup is the culmination of national pride, unforgettable moments, cricketing heritage, and an opportunity to celebrate with fellow enthusiasts. It’s a one-day global showcase featuring ten competitive nations: Australia, Afghanistan, Bangladesh, England, India, Netherlands, New Zealand, Pakistan, South Africa, and Sri Lanka, all geared up for thrilling action.
A total of ten teams representing different nations will participate. It’s noteworthy that India, as the sole host, will be organizing the event for the first time in its history.
While India has previously co-hosted major cricket events in 1987, 1996, and 2011, this time they hold the sole responsibility of hosting.
Notably, the Indian cricket team, led by MS Dhoni, clinched victory in the 2011 ODI World Cup when it was held in their home country. They secured the championship by defeating former champions Sri Lanka in an epic final at Mumbai’s Wankhede Stadium.
This time tournament is set to feature a total of 48 matches, scheduled to take place from October 5 to November 19. These matches will be spread across ten different venues located in various cities across India, including Delhi, Ahmedabad, Mumbai, Hyderabad, Dharamshala, Kolkata, Chennai, Lucknow, Pune, and Bengaluru.
Each of the participating teams is expected to play nine matches in the preliminary stage, and following this, the top four teams will earn a spot in the highly-anticipated semifinals.
The tournament will witness the participation of 16 umpires, and it’s noteworthy that 12 of them are part of the Elite Panel of ICC Umpires, showcasing their high level of expertise. To ensure fair play and adherence to the rules, the ICC has appointed four match referees: Jeff Crowe, Andy Pycroft, Richie Richardson, and Javagal Srinath, for this prestigious competition.
The opening match of the tournament, featuring England and New Zealand, will be officiated by umpires Nitin Menon and Kumar Dharamsena, along with on-field umpire Javagal Srinath, while Paul Wilson will serve as the TV umpire. This highly-anticipated event promises to deliver an exciting spectacle for cricket enthusiasts worldwide.
