If Pakistan boycotts the ICC World Cup 2023, the ICC has a backup plan

Despite the release of the schedule, Pakistan’s participation in the 2023 World Cup is still up in the air. There will be matches in five Indian cities. In the event that Pakistan refuses to go, the ICC has backup plans.

The Cricket World Cup in 2023, which will be hosted for the first time exclusively by India, is eagerly awaited. 48 games make up the tournament, which runs from October 5 to November 19. The inaugural and championship games are played at Ahmedabad’s Narendra Modi Stadium. Pakistan’s participation is still in doubt, requiring official authorization. In Pakistan’s absence, the third-placed team from the qualifiers in Zimbabwe will take their place.

Due to their two losses in the group stage, the West Indies run the possibility of missing out on the World Cup. For the Super Six round, Sri Lanka, Zimbabwe, Scotland, the Netherlands, and Oman have qualified.

The 2023 World Cup and Asia Cup host cities are still up in the air. Due to India’s refusal to travel to Pakistan, a hybrid arrangement involving matches in Sri Lanka and Pakistan has been implemented. Pakistan last traveled to India in 2008, while India last traveled to Pakistan in 2016 for the T20 World Cup. Ahmedabad, Kolkata, Chennai, Bengaluru, and Hyderabad are the five locations where Pakistan will perform.
