Shashi Tharoor expresses disappointment over exclusion of iconic cricket venues in ICC Men’s World Cup 2023 schedule

The ICC Men’s World Cup 2023 schedule was announced by the ICC, revealing India as the host country. However, the exclusion of significant cities from the list of venues has caused disappointment. Mohali, known for its cricketing history, was left out of the fixtures, while matches are concentrated in Ahmedabad’s Narendra Modi Stadium.

Shashi Tharoor, a Congress MP representing Kerala, expressed disappointment that iconic venues like Thiruvananthapuram’s SportsHub were not included, questioning the decision to make Ahmedabad the “cricket capital of India.”


The omission has sparked debates and raised concerns about the selection process and the distribution of matches across the country.
