“Why India ain’t playing opener as it’s host”, Twitter reacts to India’s reported match venues for ODI World Cup 2023

India will host the ODI World Cup later this year. Till now, there has been no official confirmation about the dates and the venues. However, some popular publications have already released their reports. Here, we take a look at how Twitter reacted to India’s reported match venues for ODI World Cup 2023.

Reported match venues for ODI World Cup 2023

One of the talking points is that India will not play the first game of the event, despite the country being the host. It is actually a surprising move but we need to wait to see if this would be the official word, as well. India’s important games will happen in Chennai at Ahmedabad. While Australia would be the opponent at the Chepauk, it would be Pakistan at Ahmedabad. Also, it is reported that Pakistan would play most of its games in Hyderabad, Bengaluru and Chennai.

BCCI must ensure that it gets the right venues that will play to the strengths of the team. Since most of the overseas players operate in the IPL, it would be hard for the Indians to expect these players to not know much about the conditions. Also in cities such as Mumbai and Bengaluru, runs flow easily and India should not look to play the key games at these venues, although both are high-profile venues. The management must already have a clear idea of where they would play their games. This would help them in preparing the squad to suit the same.
