Where to watch Cricket World Cup in India: TV, Telecast and Live … – Sporting News

With the ODI World Cup 2023 on the horizon, the excitement is touching peak.
Every Indian cricket fan is buzzing as the country prepares to play host to the ODI Men’s World Cup after a gap of 11 years.
Back in 2011, when the global event last took pace in India, the hosts were victorious in securing their first title since 1983.
Since then, it’s been a tournament of the hosts, as Australia and England, where the last two editions of the competition were held, laid down their claim over the trophies.
With England and New Zealand being the defending champions and runner-up respectively this time around, they will play the tournament-opener on October 5 at Narendra Modi Stadium, Ahmedabad.
In total, 10 teams will participate in the showpiece event. There will be 48 matches, including the two semi-finals and final.
Here’s all the information you need to know about where you can watch the action live.

The hosts, India, look like the favourites to lift the trophy, with the home crowd potentially playing an important role.
Under Rohit Sharma’s captaincy, India will hope to bring the World Cup home again after 12 years, and lift their third overall title.
Defending champions England are strongly fancied also, and will want to keep the ODI World Cup trophy they won four years ago. With the return of Ben Stokes, their team looks ready to fight.
New Zealand, who England beat in the final in dramatic circumstances four years ago (a Super Over ended in a tie, with the hosts winning on boundary countback) are many people’s outside bet to finally end their trophy wait. They hold the record for the most semi-final appearances in World Cups and are likely to be strong — although the fitness of recently injured captain Kane Williamson will be pivotal for them. 
Australia is on a hot winning streak right now. Under the able captaincy of Pat Cummins, they have managed to win the World Test Championship in 2023 and also retain The Ashes. It won’t be a surprise if they win the ODI World Cup to add to that haul.
Sri Lanka, while having to qualify through the playoff stage, could be a surprise package. The odds on them to win have shortened in recent weeks, thanks to their run to the final of the recent Asia Cup.
A huge rivalry clash between India and Pakistan on October 14 will be one of the highlights of the tournament, and it could also go a long way to deciding the fate of Shaheen Afridi and Co. Pakistan have won the tournament before, but will need to be at their very best to do so again.
It may also be a stretch too far for South Africa, who will do well to make the semi-finals given the competitive nature of the field.
Bangladesh and Afghanistan have made improvements in recent years, and are capable of an upset performance on their day, although winning the tournament outright is surely not possible.
As for Netherlands,  a win of any description in the ODI Cricket World Cup would likely warrant a job well done in the tournament. Don’t forget though that they qualified ahead of World Cup powerhouses West Indies via the play-off stage.
Them winning the whole thing, though, would most certainly rank as one of the greatest sporting shocks of all time!
