There is also an abundance of online cricket betting website and apps that you can choose from. Now, fans not only enjoy games but also bet on games and players competing in their favorite leagues. With that said, here are some of the upcoming cricket events to look forward to after the T20 World Cup.
2022–2023 Big Bash League
The Big Bash League (BBL) season 12 will be from December 2022 to January 2023. A Twenty20 cricket competition will be run by Cricket Australia (CA). It will include up to 61 professional men’s Twenty20 domestic cricket matches.
The Bash Boost point and X-Factor have been eliminated, and the Power Surge will make its debut in the WBBL this year. The BBL and WBBL will also finally have a Decision Review System in place for the next season. DRS has long been a goal of the league to align the BBL with the main T20 leagues across the world.
2023 Cricket Asia Cup
The 16th Asia Cup, often considered the first multi-nation cricket competition to feature Asian nations, will take place in Pakistan in the second half of 2023. According to the ICC’s Future Tour Program (FTP), Pakistan would be the only country in charge of organizing the competition this time. We anticipate fierce competition amongst the Asian cricket teams if all proceeds according to plan. Because the ICC Men’s 50-over World Cup will be held after the Asia Cup, the tournament in 2023 will be in the ODI format.
In the UAE, the 15th Asia Cup was recently held from August 27 to September 11th. Sri Lanka overcame Pakistan to win the first T20 Asia Cup, their sixth overall.
India lost to Pakistan and Sri Lanka in the Super 4 round, preventing them from beating them and moving on to the finals. The biggest plus for India was Virat Kohli’s resurgence, who struck a century in international cricket after nearly a year.
The format for the Asia Cup in 2023 will be 50 over. There will be 13 matches. India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, and Afghanistan, the top 5 teams, have already qualified for the championship match. The qualifying round for the Asia Cup 2023 will determine the sixth team. Each team will play the other team once during the group stage, which will be followed by the super 4 round, in a round-robin style.
2023 Indian Premier League
The 16th season of the Indian Premier League sometimes referred to as IPL 16, will begin in 2023. The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) established this T20 cricket competition. The 16th season of the Indian Premier League, or IPL 2023, will begin the final week of March and go through May 2023. There will be 10 teams, 74 games, and 14 league games for each club this season. According to the IPL schedule, the first game will feature CSK and KKR.
The IPL Schedule 2023’s preliminary dates are 25 March through 28 May 2023. IPL 2023 will feature 10 teams, with two teams created in the 2022 season. Because BCCI utilizes the same group stage and playoff structure as IPL 2022, there will be 74 league matches in IPL 2023.
Punjab Kings will enter the competition with the largest budget as they do every season. Kings had INR 3.45 crore left over from the major auction earlier this year, but Lucknow Super Giants had used it all up in only one season.
