As the ICC World Cup 2023 approaches, uncertainty hangs over the event’s schedule. This is due to security worries that might force last-minute changes. Not even months are left until the mega event starts, and we observe this sort of unprofessionalism from BCCI.
The Hyderabad Cricket Association (HCA) has urged the BCCI to reconsider the dates of two back-to-back matches. This comes after local police highlighted security worries.
The games are the October 9 New Zealand-Netherlands encounter and the October 10 Pakistan-Sri Lanka match.
Both are set to take place at the Rajiv Gandhi Stadium in Uppal, Hyderabad. Pakistan and Sri Lanka were supposed to play on October 12. However, the date had to be adjusted to provide the Pakistani squad extra recuperation time following their October 14 encounter against India.
This is not the first time the World Cup schedule has been altered. Some changes were made earlier this month without the involvement of the HCA.
This encouraged them to make a formal request for a change. Fans wonder if the BCCI would agree to change the schedule again when tickets go on sale on August 25.
We hope that BCCI will work to sort out these rumors. Fans get confused, and the ticket prices are not low. The Indian cricket board is yet to announce this. Let’s see whether they confirm the news or not.
