The 2023 Cricket World Cup is scheduled to be hosted by India.[1][2] This will be the thirteenth Cricket World Cup competition, and the fourth time that India will be the hosts.[3] The event will mark the first time that India will host the tournament on their own, after having co-hosted previous World Cup tournaments in 1987 (with Pakistan), 1996 (with Pakistan and Sri Lanka) and 2011 (with Sri Lanka and Bangladesh).


The 2023 World Cup will feature 10 teams, same as 2019 Cricket World Cup down from 14 teams in 2011 and 2015. The top eight teams in the ICC rankings will earn automatic qualification with the remaining two places decided by a qualifying competition . This will allow ICC associate and affiliate members to qualify, and could mean that, World Cup may not feature every Test playing nation.[4]
