According to reports, the opening match of this year’s ICC mega event will feature a match between defending champions England and the 2019 World Cup losing finalists. On October 5, the two teams will meet in the World Cup opener in Ahmedabad.
According to Live Cricket Score, hosts India will face Australia in their season opener in Chennai. Meanwhile, the source confirmed that India’s arch-rivals, Pakistan, have agreed to travel to the host country for the global tournament, despite their ongoing disagreement over the Asia Cup plans later this year.
The World Cup opener and final are scheduled to take place in Ahmedabad, but Pakistan is unwilling to play their games at the Narendra Modi Stadium and has requested a venue change for their group games. They have agreed, however, to hold the final in Ahmedabad if their team qualifies for the summit clash. According to a preliminary schedule, Men Green will most likely play games in Ahmedabad, Hyderabad, Chennai, and Bengaluru.
