ICC World Cup 2023: Defending champions England will take on New Zealand in the opening match of the 2023 World Cup at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad. England captain Jos Buttler does not take the title of defending champions lightly and stressed that England are “in exactly the same position as any other team”. In a press conference ahead of the opening match against New Zealand, Jos Buttler was faced with a strange question, but his calm response won the hearts of netizens.
