New Delhi. India is ready to host the ODI World Cup (World Cup 2023). Competitions are to be held in October-November. According to the information, matches can be played at a total of 12 venues. It will start from 5th October. And the final will be played on 19 November. A total of 10 teams are taking part in the ICC event and 48 matches will be played. Cricket’s World Cup organization ICC (ICC) is expected to earn about Rs 4500 from broadcasting this mega event which lasts for 46 days. However, even after this, there is a big problem in front of the BCCI. He may suffer a loss of about Rs 1000 crore.
According to the ICC agreement, there is a provision to give him tax exemption during big events. That is, the country in which this event is to be held. The board of that country will have to get this exemption from the government. BCCI has also signed on this. But during the T20 World Cup in 2016, the ICC did not get exemption. After this there was a dispute between ICC and BCCI. Due to this, about 200 rupees were deducted from the amount received by the BCCI from the Central Pool of the ICC.
This time a blow of 1000 crores
According to the report of Cricinfo, this time the ICC may have to pay around Rs 1000 crore as tax during the World Cup to be held in India. It will be deducted from the revenue of BCCI. Between 2016 and 2023, the BCCI is to receive around Rs 3400 crore from the ICC’s Central Pool. However, the board is hopeful that the government’s ongoing dispute regarding tax will be resolved.
The final of the World Cup can be played at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad. Apart from this, talking about other venues, matches are also to be played in Bangalore, Chennai, Delhi, Dharamshala, Guwahati, Hyderabad, Kolkata, Lucknow, Indore, Rajkot and Mumbai. Talking about the World Cup, the England team is the defending champion of the tournament. At the same time, India last won the title in the 2011 World Cup held at home. In such a situation, the team would like to do the same this time too.
