The World Cup 2023 Qualifiers are set to take place from June 18 to July 9 at four venues in Zimbabwe, according to a schedule released by the International Cricket Council on May 23.
The World Cup 2023 Qualifier schedule, which will take place in Zimbabwe from June 18 to July 9, was released by the International Cricket Council (ICC) on Tuesday, May 23. Ten teams were split into two groups.
Zimbabwe, the Netherlands, the West Indies, Nepal, and the United States of America (USA) make up Group A. Group B is made up of the United Arab Emirates (UAE), Sri Lanka, Ireland, Scotland, Oman, and Ireland.
The matches will take place at four different locations: Harare Sports Club, Takashinga Cricket Club, Queen’s Sports Club, and Bulawayo Athletic Club. The group stage, which consists of 20 matches, will be followed by the Super 6 stage.
The top two teams from the Super 6 will compete in the championship game and advance to the main event, which will take place in India later this year.
On June 18, the two-time champion West Indies will face off against the United States to open their season. On June 19, the UAE will play the 1996 world champions Sri Lanka in the opening match of the qualifiers.
“The ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup 2023 is drawing closer, and this tournament offers teams a fantastic opportunity to qualify for the premier one-day cricket competition.”
