INDIA will be hosting the World's greatest event - The ICC 2023 ODI World Cup in October-November and the talks are already on peak about whether Pakistan will fly down to India for the fifty-over tournament or not. 

The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has warned India Men in Green too will refuse to come to India after India refused to travel to Pakistan for Asia Cup scheduled this year right before the World Cup.

Later, BCCI secretary and president of the Asian Cricket Council Jay Shah said that the venue of the Asia Cup will have to change as traveling to Pakistan will require approval from the Indian government. 

BCCI, however, is learned to have told ICC, that the Indian government will be providing visas for Pakistani players for the ODI World Cup. ICC has been told that there will not be any issues related to the visa of Pakistani players.

The Indian cricket board has also said to have finalized 12 cricket stadiums that are set to host the World Cup. They are Bengaluru, Chennai, Delhi, Dharamsala, Guwahati, Hyderabad, Kolkata, Lucknow, Indore, Rajkot, and Mumbai. 

It is most likely that the world's largest stadium in the world Narendra Modi Stadium will host the final of the tournament while Eden Gardens (Kolkata), Wankhede Stadium (Mumbai), MA Chidambaram Stadium (Chennai), and M Chinnaswamy Stadium (Bengaluru) are shortlisted to host the semi-finals of the tournament.

The dates of the ODI World Cup are yet to be finalized but it is likely that the tournament will be held from October 5 to November 19 in India.

A few days ago, news came through a source that India will play their Asia Cup matches at a neutral venue and will not go to Pakistan. If India reaches the final with Pakistan, that would also take place at a neutral venue.

It was also reported earlier that the Pakistan team could play its ICC Cricket World Cup 2023 matches in Bangladesh instead of India.

Discussions have taken place that could see Pakistan shifting their games to a neutral venue and Bangladesh has been proposed as the venue due to its close proximity to India.

Predicted Pakistan 2023 World Cup squad:

Imam-ul-Haq / Abdullah Shaffique / Shan Masood / Babar Azam (c) / Mohammad Rizwan (wk) / Mohammad Haris (wk) / Salman Agha / Haris Sohail / Shadab Khan (vc) / Mohammad Nawaz / Shaheen Shah Afridi / Naseem Shah / Haris Rauf / Mohammad Wasim Jr / Ihsanullah.
