The 2023 ICC World Cup may be the last of its kind, and here’s why – Magazine Creations

The 2023 ICC World Cup will be the last to follow the old format where the ten teams will face each other. From 2027, a new system is scheduled to be introduced where the final round will be a 10-team group stage offering 45 entertaining matches to determine four semi-finalists.

In 2019, the tournament began with an exciting match between England and South Africa at The Oval. England won the first ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup. The group stage of the tournament lasted six weeks.

Despite this, Pakistan started the tournament very slowly, winning only one of their first five matches, and ended with four straight wins to come close to qualifying. The team missed the semifinals with net run rate.
