The cricket's showpiece event is set to kick off in another two weeks but it is as much about business as it is about the romance of the game. The tournament promises to be a high-voltage affair, reflective as much of India's madness for the game as that madness shaping it.
There will be a total of ten teams participating in the 2023 ODI World Cup. While India qualified as tournament hosts, seven teams made the cut based on ODI Super League rankings, and remaining two teams qualified through the World Cup Qualifier held earlier this year. India, meanwhile, will host the ODI World Cup for the fourth time after 1987, 1996, and 2011, though this will be the first time they will do it on their own.
