Although the fixture hasn’t been finalized yet, ICC informed that, the competition will take place during October and November in 2023. Actually the tournament was to be played from 9 February to 26 March but the authority shifted the date due to the corona virus pandemic. 10 team will qualify for the final competition. For the first time, India will host the entire tournament itself. Thus we expect the day games to start at 9:30 am local time while the day-night games should begin at 2:30 pm local time. Due to huge time difference of 10 hours and 30 minutes, North American viewers will catch the live actions at 11 pm (-1 day) and 4 am respectively.
