ICC Men's Cricket World Cup 2019: 100 Days-to-Go

The 2023 ODI World Cup schedule is set for changes just two months out from the start of the tournament.

In what has been something of a farce to this point in the organisation of the event, which will be held in India from October 5, the original schedule wasn't realised until late June, giving travelling fans just three months to make plans.

And now even those plans may need to change.

Even that schedule came with plenty of headaches.

The biggest of those was the potential non-participation of Pakistan, who have ongoing issues with India. Those issues came to a head after India refused to play the Asia Cup in Pakistan.

Eventually the Asian Cricket Council elected to hold a split Asia Cup, with some matches in Pakistan, and others in Sri Lanka.

It was believed at one stage that Pakistan also had issue with playing India in Ahmedabad, a stadium that can hold more than 100,000 spectators, over security concerns.

While the venue won't change, the date may, with India to celebrate the first day of the Hindu festival Navratri on October 15 - the day India and Pakistan are due to plan. It was reported by CricInfo that security would be an issue that day, however, BCCI secretary Jay Shah said that wasn't the reason.

"If security was an issue then why would the match go there (to Ahmedabad). [October] 14-15 is not the problem," he said.

Now it has been revealed by CricInfo that multiple nations have expressed isuses based on logistical challenges and the gap between games.

While venues wouldn't change, there was a likelihood of match days changing, which will pose a challenge to broadcasters, fans and the schedule of logistics as a whole.

Two or three boards have written in, asking to change based on the logistical challenges. There are some matches where there is only a two-day gap, so it will be difficult to play and then travel next day [and then play again]," Shah added.

As it stands in the current schedule, there are a number of three-day turnarounds to go with the mentioned two-day turnaround, which will pose plenty of issues given the magnitude of travel at the 2023 World Cup.

The tournament is due to start with England taking on New Zealand on October 5. Australia open their account on October 8 in Chennai against India, before playing South Africa in Lucknow on October 13.
