The World Cup takes place every four years and is one of the most anticipated tournaments among cricket fans. This is the 13th edition of the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup since it started in 1975. At the Narendra Modi Stadium, the World Cup begins with England taking on New Zealand in a rematch of the 2019 World Cup final. While 10 venues across India will host games, this year's final will also be played at the 134,000-seater in Ahmedabad on November 19. The matches will take place in Ahmedabad, Mumbai, Delhi, Lucknow, Bengaluru, Chennai, Hyderabad, Pune and Dharamshala.
The highlight of the tournament, all captains agreed, will undoubtedly be the much-anticipated game between archrivals India and Pakistan in Ahmedabad on Oct. 14, which is sure to draw a massive global audience. "There aren’t too many events where half the world tunes in to watch, and that is India playing Pakistan in a World Cup for you", Australia captain Pat Cummins said. "Even if you are personally not involved, you watch and feel the passion around the game. There will be easily over 100,000 people here".
