HCA expresses ‘concern’ over hosting back-to-back ODI World Cup 2023 matches

The Hyderabad Cricket Association (HCA) has come out to express concern over hosting successive ODI World Cup 2023 matches. They expressed this concern through an official citing organization and security arrangements as major issues.

The recent HCA comments could force another adjustment to the current ODI World Cup 2023 schedule of games. Two games of concern – Netherlands vs. New Zealand and Sri Lanka vs. Pakistan – are set to take place in Hyderabad on October 9 and 10, 2023.

Why is the HCA Asking for Match Rescheduling?

The Hyderabad Police are not sure they can provide adequate security for ODI World Cup 2023 games in quick succession. This development suggests the HCA may request for a postponement of at least one fixture. HCA and Hyderabad’s police agree that a 24-hour gap between games will be ideal to provide enough security at world cup games.

HCA officials are currently discussing with the BCCI and security agencies about any potential adjustments to games scheduled to happen in Hyderabad. Ticket sales for the ODI World Cup 2023 is expected to start on August 25, 2023 and fans want the schedule sorted before purchasing tickets.
