One of the most popular competitions in the men’s team sport called cricket is the T20 World Competition. In recent years, the pandemic has caused a lot of unpleasantness, forcing the postponement of the competition from India. But this season, all should go smoothly, as fans are already preparing to host at home.
Let’s learn more about the history of the Cricket World Cup 2023 ICC T20, its players, teams, format, and future location. Read about all the important stuff later in the text.
A brief history of the competition
The history of the world cricket tournament is relatively obscure because the first such competition was played by the United States and Canada. Then the competition shifted slightly and was hosted by England, Australia, Shire-Lanka, and the West Indies.
With each year the number of teams grew and it became necessary to develop rules for admission, and special tournament indicators, which determine the departure of teams and winners.
Such competition as we know it did not appear until 1999. The last time it was held was in 2019, after which the cricket event had to be rescheduled several times because of the COVID-19 pandemic. So fans are already pretty bored with this sporting event.
Where Cricket World Cup will be held (location and dates)
This could be the 13th Men’s CWC. It will be held in India in 2023, after several changes in the area. It could start in October and run until November.
Originally, the dates were to be different, but now the cricket commission has had to postpone the matches to prepare everything through the pandemic.
|Host||Dates||Participating Cricket Squads|
|Various||July 2020 – March||South Africa, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Australia, West Indies, Bangladesh, India, Ireland, Netherlands, New Zealand, Sri Lanka, Zimbabwe, England|

Unfortunately, the official schedule has not yet been shown, so you have to wait until the official dates of the event are announced and you can buy tickets for this season’s Cricket World Cup.
Distribution of teams into cricket groups
Since there are 10 teams taking part in the competition, they are divided into groups, relative to qualification. This is an important nuance because fans need to know which corral and with whom will fight for victory through cricket.
The distribution has already been carried out in this way:
- Group A: Sri Lanka, England, Bangladesh, and New Zealand, Australia;
- Group B: Pakistan, South Africa, India, West Indies, Zimbabwe;
- Associate Members: Ireland.
The following assignments could depend on how the teams play. This will determine how the gangs will be distributed in the semifinals and who will advance to the final game, which should be on November 26, 2023.
Since the tournament is still a year away, the results of the draw can be replayed. Therefore, do not rely on this information as your main information.

Also a good chance of winning next year in England, despite the fact that in the past they have performed quite well.
