Just over 40 days before the first match of the tournament on October 5, the tickets for the 2023 ODI World Cup, which will be played throughout India, will finally go on sale on August 25. The World Cup’s revised schedule, which was also greatly delayed, included nine games with new dates, including the highly anticipated match between India and Pakistan. The update came from the ICC shortly after that.
Tickets for all games in the tournament and warm-ups that do not feature India will go on sale first, on August 25. Tickets for games involving India will subsequently be sold in six phases, first for their two warm-up matches (against England in Guwahati on September 30 and against the Netherlands/Sri Lanka in Thiruvananthapuram on October 3), and then for their matches in the main tournament.
India will not be playing in any warm-up or World Cup games on August 25.
India plays exhibition games at Guwahati and Thiruvananthapuram on August 30.
On August 31st, India will play in World Cup matches in Chennai (against Australia), Delhi (against Afghanistan), and Pune (against Bangladesh).
September 1: India World Cup matches in Mumbai (against. Sri Lanka, Nov. 2), Lucknow (vs. New Zealand, Oct. 22), and Dharamsala (versus. England, Oct. 29).
September 2: India World Cup games in Bengaluru (against the Netherlands on November 12) and Kolkata (against South Africa on November 5).

15 September: Semi-finals and championship
“Starting on August 15, fans will have the chance to express their interest in purchasing tickets by visiting https://www.cricketworldcup.com/register. This will allow them to learn about ticket information first, help ensure their place at the World Cup, and enjoy a full day of cricket, according to a statement from the ICC outlining the procedure.
“We call on all of cricket’s hundreds of millions of fans to register your interest from next week onwards to ensure you are one of the first to receive ticket news and to be a part of the biggest Cricket World Cup,” said Chris Tetley, head of events for the International Cricket Council. The scheduling change will guarantee that players and spectators have the finest possible time at the apex of the one-day game.
It is unusual for a World Cup to have a delay in revealing the final schedule and the ticketing strategy. For contrast, tickets for the 2019 ODI World Cup in England and Wales went on sale in September 2018. The ICC then held a second sale on March 21, 2019, in response to the overwhelming demand, with the event starting on May 30.
