ODI World Cup 2023 Format

Unlike 2007 and 2011 when the number of teams on the ICC world cup 2023 team list was 16 and 14, respectively, this year will see fewer teams.

  • This time, there will be ten teams on the ICC world cup 2023 team list.
  • Earlier teams would play three group games before moving into the Super Six or Super Eight stages.
  • But in 2023, teams are reduced, and therefore each team plays another and then moves on to the semi-final, which will lead to the final on November 19.

ICC World Cup 2023 Teams And Their Details

In this section, we will take a look at ICC world cup team list 2023 on a team-by-team basis.


Under Rohit Sharma, Team India will look to repeat the class act of 2011 when they won the trophy under MS Dhoni.

Being the host, India will have their task cut out. They would also have to deal with the home pressure.


Pat Cummins will lead the side. One of the most successful teams in the world, Australia have won five World Cup titles.


The defending champions won the 2019 ODI World Cup and will have some challenges in Indian conditions.


Known as the most mercurial team, Pakistan is a contender for the semi-finals. The pitches in India are not that different to Pakistan’s.

Sri Lanka: 

Sri Lanka, under Dasun Shanaka, will also need to play out of their skins. They had sealed the deal after winning the ODI World Cup qualifier in Zimbabwe recently.

New Zealand: 

The Black Caps are one of the most successful teams in ODI cricket, reaching the last four on multiple occasions.


The Bangla tigers can also take full advantage of the Indian pitches that are on offer. 

South Africa: 

Known as the eternal chokers, the Proteas have underperformed in ICC tournaments. However, if they can mend their ways, they can surely excel on Indian pitches where most of their cricketers play in IPL.


Netherlands played out of their skins to reach the final of the ODI World Cup qualifiers where they lost to Sri Lanka in the final.

Can they pull off a few upsets against big teams in India?


Afghanistan will surely benefit from the presence of spinners like Rashid Khan who spend most of their time in India while playing IPL.

Final Thoughts:

ICC World Cup 2023 team list is down to ten teams, which may be good for the tournament, but causes issues for smaller teams that are struggling to stay afloat.

This will be the 13th edition of the ODI World Cup, and this is the fourth time the tournament is being played on Indian soil.

This will lead to high scoring matches more often than not, giving lots of joy to the fans.
