The International Cricket Council (ICC) has announced the phased sale of tickets for India’s matches in the ICC World Cup 2023
The sale will commence on August 30. Non-India matches will go on sale from August 25.
Following the announcement of a revised schedule for the One-Day ICC World Cup 2023 with changes in the format, including nine matches involving India, the International Cricket Council (ICC) declared on Thursday that the tickets for this flagship event will be available for purchase starting from August 25. The previous edition’s finalists, England and New Zealand, will face each other on October 5 at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad.
ICC has further revealed that tickets for India matches will be released in a phased manner to mitigate any chaos and provide a systematic approach to fans. Ticket sales for all non-India matches and non-India practice matches will begin on August 25. This implies that tickets for all matches of the nine teams – England, Australia, Pakistan, New Zealand, South Africa, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, Afghanistan, and the Netherlands – will be available for booking from August 25.
The sale of tickets for India matches has become somewhat complicated as ICC has decided to divide ticket sales based on venues. Tickets for India’s practice matches will start selling from August 30. Main round tickets will be available from August 31. Notably, tickets for the India-Pakistan match, which will now be played on October 14 instead of October 15, can be booked from September 3.
To manage the expected ticket demand and provide more fans with the best opportunity to witness the world’s finest players, ticket sales will occur in phases on the following dates:

August 25: Non-India practice matches and all non-India event matches
