CRICKET WORLD CUP 2023

WHICH COUNTRY WILL HOST THE CRICKET WORLD CUP 2023?

Our cricket fans are looking up to the only thing nowadays: the cricket world cup for the year 2023! Many countries have taken the initiative to host the cricket world cups in past years. You would be ten times more excited and happy to hear that world cup 2023 would be happening in INDIA.

WHAT IS ODI CRICKET WORLD CUP?

Until 1973, India did not have its version for the cricket world cup but then with the changing direction of having women’s world cup conducted in England. It came with seven teams that contested each other and taking inspiration from that, the men’s version of the world cup also took birth. We all know that there is no more critical or elite prize that matters more than the world cup for cricket fans and cricket lovers. 

The journey of the most extraordinary world cup series took its start from there and is growing from there, year by year. It comes only once in the time span of four years. So it gears up the happiness and excitement level for the cricket fans to watch this series as it comes after four years!

SOME HISTORIC WORLD CUP WINNERS

This tournament has witnessed some six different winners to date! It started with West Indies becoming the winner for the first two editions. They were crowned as the first champions for the world cup series. India won its first title in 1983. 

The winners are coming down the list from that time and making some excellent history for the time. 

From 1999, Australia came and started its dominance in the tournament. The country has shown some outstanding records and wins in the world cup series. Steve Waugh who went for the country, and despite all the blocks and challenges, he managed to make his team win their second world cup. Then Ricky Ponting came in the year 2003 and took all the charges and won two world cups without losing anything. 

India came and made a totally different setup in the year 2011 by making a whole different story! Team India broke the deadlock of the hosting team and created a great fairy tale for the team. The year 2011 came with some good luck for the team India. 

WHICH COUNTRY WILL HOST THE 2023 CRICKET WORLD CUP?

With great joy and excitement, team India will take the pressure on its shoulders and have the command to host the world cup! There would be a new zeal as well as some new challenges in front of India, but there is always different happiness for the hosting team! Taking all the pressure on your team for hosting as well as making your playing criteria more strong, there is a lot of burden for the squad!

It would be the very first time that since the establishment of the world cup, there would be a subcontinent country that would host the world cup on the individual level. If you remember, India and Pakistan co-hosted the match in the year 1987. Then in 1996, India, Pakistan as well as Sri Lanka co-hosted the world cup! There were 3 hosts for the tournament!

Again, something very similar happened in 2011, but now India remains the only host for the tournament. 

The Cricket universe is a big thing to be handled, and taking it alone on your shoulders is a big task! India is doing it for the first time, and that too alone!
