The primary championship contenders are currently focused on test cricket because the match schedule is still unknown; also, there has to be more buzz about the 50 overs World Cup because it is five months away and is anticipated to begin in October.
The 13th edition of this tournament’s crown jewel will have its dates and locations announced in due course, according to the ICC’s governing International Cricket Council. The host also maintains the same, which is the Indian board.
The BCCI Board of Control for Cricket in India also stated that they are currently in discussions with the ICCI, which are going well. They will soon announce the venues and date for the tournament, as stated by a senior officer from BCCI.
The announcement about the date and venues of the tournaments highly depends on the Indian Premier League, as only these announcements will be made after the completion of the IPL, which is on May 28, according to various media reports.
Even though it may be annoying for fans that they have very less information about such major Sporting events, which is highly unusual, especially for the fans that are planning to travel to India for these tournaments but it is really unlikely that this will impact too much on the preparations for the eight teams which have already qualified for the tournament.
Even though the team’s immediate focus is on regaining the Ashes from Australia in their next test series, which will begin in the following month, England, who also hosts both white ball World Cups, is seen as a dominant force in this competition as well as in short format cricket.
The player Jofra Archer is currently in doubt about that series because he had an elbow injury, and the white ball captain Jos Butler is also hoping that the Archer will be back to full fitness before the World Cup tournament.
The door for Ben Stokes has also been left open by the region champions to return to the one-day fold if the hero, all-rounder of the 2019 final, reconsiders his ODI retirement, which shocked the fans.
A shocking 3-0 defeat by Bangladesh in the Twenty20 part of that tour followed England’s laborious 2-1 ODI series victory over Bangladesh in March, eliminating any lingering signs of complacency.
The time India hosted the World Cup, the team of India won the tournament. It happened in 2011, but Rohit Sharma has yet to give us a settled look.
Jasprit Bumrah, the pace spearhead, has also been sidelined from matches since September of last year due to his back injury and has also been missing from the Indian Premier League as well as the final of the World Test Championship against the team Australia.
The player Rishabh Pant, the stumper-batsman, is also most likely to miss the world cup as he is continuing to recover from his multiple injuries, which happened in a horrific car crash the last December.
