The cricket fraternity is currently busy following the sixteenth edition of the Indian Premier League. Post the cash-rich IPL, there is a truckload of international assignments lined up ahead.
The ICC World Test Championship Final 2023, Ashes 2023, Asia Cup 2023 and ICC ODI World Cup 2023 are slated to be held later this year. It is going to be an absolute feast for the cricket fans.
The upcoming edition of the ICC ODI World Cup 2023 is scheduled to be staged entirely in India for the first time in history. It remains to be seen which team will defy the odds and come through with flying colours in the battle.
The tournament is slated to be held in the October-November window and it is expected to kick-off on October 5. Australia are the record holders of the tournament as they have won the title five times.
Team India are set to play their opening match against Australia
Meanwhile, in the latest development, Team India are set to play their opening fixture against the Australian cricket team. As reported by Cricbuzz, Chennai will host the blockbuster clash.
Team India have won two World Cup titles in their history. Under the captaincy of Kapil Dev, India beat West Indies in 1983 World Cup final to win their maiden title.
After 28 years, Team India made a bid for the second World Cup title and they even succeeded in winning the second World Cup title under the captaincy of MS Dhoni in the 2011 edition.
Team India defeated Sri Lanka in the final to win the prestigious trophy. Since then, they failed to make a bid for the third World Cup title and it remains to be seen what the future holds in store for Team India. They do have plenty of firepower and ammunition in their arsenal to give it their best shot to win the third title.
Perfect match to start with.
Either If we create a spin friendly track or a flat road, we will get to see some serious challenge from the Aussies. 👀
