The BCCI is running behind schedule, and ticket information is being hidden.
The 2015 and 2019 One Day World Cup schedules were made available to the public a year ago. The schedule for the 2023 World Cup is currently being set. Less than four months remain till the event begins. The World Test Championship will be the occasion for the World Cup schedule to be revealed, according to Jay Shah, the BCCI secretary, who said this on May 27. Due to the delay in the schedule, the ICC has been unable to give information on the tickets for the World Cup games.
If Pakistan’s appeal for the Asia Cup is granted, the squad won’t place any restrictions on its World Cup participation.
The Asian Cricket Council (ACC) may accept the Pakistan Cricket Board’s (PCB) bid for the Asia Cup. According to the news agency PTI, the PCB has recommended that all of India’s matches be played in Sri Lanka and the rest matches be played in Pakistan. The ACC could officially announce the Asia Cup on Tuesday, June 13. Pakistan’s World Cup encounter against India will thereafter get off to a clean start.
According to an ACC member, CEO Geoff Allardice and Chairman Greg Barclay visited PCB Chairman Najam Sethi in Karachi. During this discussion, it was made clear that Pakistan would not impose any limitations on its ability to participate in the World Cup since all four of the competition’s games would be held there.
