The 2023 ICC Men's Cricket World Cup marks the 13th edition of this quadrennial One Day International (ODI) cricket tournament, organized by the International Cricket Council (ICC). India is hosting the tournament, which began on October 5 and is set to conclude on November 19, 2023. The defending champions are England, who secured victory in the 2019 edition by defeating New Zealand in the final at Lord's, London.
A total of ten national teams are participating, each of which had to qualify through the 2023 Cricket World Cup qualification process. India secured automatic qualification as the host nation. Afghanistan, Australia, Bangladesh, England, New Zealand, Pakistan, and South Africa qualified through the ICC Cricket World Cup Super League. The Netherlands and Sri Lanka secured the last two spots through the qualifier tournament held in Zimbabwe in June and July 2023. Notably, this marks the first time in history that the West Indies failed to qualify for the tournament.
India is hosting this Cricket World Cup solely, a departure from their previous co-hosting of the 1987, 1996, and 2011 editions with other nations. The tournament is spread across ten different stadiums in ten cities throughout India. The first and second semi-finals are slated for Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai and Eden Gardens in Kolkata, respectively, while the final showdown will take place at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad.
