Can the Kiwis hold the World Cup this time?

The Blackcaps, who reached the finals in the last ICC event and had a bit of unfortunate luck in being the losing side against England are yet again ready to compete in the ODI World Cup 2023. The Kiwis will start their World Cup campaign against their last year’s ICC events rival England on October 5 at Ahmedabad.

Before entering the World Cup, the Kiwis will play 4 ODIs against England in the month of September at England. The Kiwis lost their last ODI series against Pakistan in the month of May in which they played 5 ODIs and Pakistan won by 4-1.
There is still doubt that who will lead the New Zealand side, whether Kane Williamson will be fit by the time of the tournament or Southee will lead the team. The omission of Kane Williamson can affect the Kiwis as he is there for the team in the middle order and is a great captain.


After the clash with England, the Kiwis will play against the team who will qualify first in the qualifiers on October 9, then against Bangladesh on October 14, then against Afghanistan on October 18, then against India on October 22, then aginst Australia on October 28, then against South Africa on November 1, then against Pakistan on November 4 and the last match will be played against the team who will be second in the qualifiers on November 9.

The next stages after the matches are the semi-finals and finals if they will qualify in the top four. Will the Blackcaps be able to prove themselves in this ICC event?
