ODI World Cup 2023
« on: October 05, 2023, 08:06:19 AM »

The ODI World Cup starts today in India!! Should be an exciting tournament with most teams looking in great form. It will be interesting to see what kind of pitches are on offer across the country with varied weather conditions. May the best team win!
The first match; Eng vs NZ should be a cracker of a contest!

Disappointed Brook didn't kick on, he was looking so good.

Big worries for Eng. It is probably easier to bat under lights so could be the pattern in this world cup. That was too easy for NZ.

Well that was a demolition of England. As on fire as our batting can be our bowling can look a bit all to easy in ODI sometimes but still back England to qualify from the group

Just watching the highlights and I know its the biggest stadium in the world but they cant be more then a couple of thousand spectators there for two of the best teams in world cricket? Not good surely for a world tournament the ICC could have done something to support free tickets, schools etc. doesnt feel like a WC opening game

Yes it was very disappointing. Lots of talk that they should have had India playing the first match but these are two of the best teams in the world. Sadly the match didnt stand up to the billing but nonetheless. Hope this isnt the case with the rest of the matches with only India matches being houseful.

Quite an exciting weekend with some great performances. SA were ruthless against SL. Will be interesting to see if they can replicate that against bigger oppositions. Also, what a contrast the location provides in the same country. Delhi was a road where as Chennai was a minefield. I really enjoyed the Ind vs Aus match. That is how pitches should be for ODIs. Leave the roads for T20.
Sadly the talking about about the beautiful Dharmashala ground was the condition of the outfield. It reminded me of the kind of outfields we get in village cricket when it rains a lot. Surely, ICC should take a look at that as it is a big risk for any teams playing there. Last thing you need is for someone to get injured when diving in the outfield!

So far the biggest letdown is the crowd. I remember when it was FIFA WC 2023, each game had decent crowd. Last 2019 WC, it was in UK and crowd was amazing and every team has support. So far, it has been rather lacklustre.

Agreed. From what I have heard its been a mix of high ticket prices, poor availability(150,000 Ind-Pak tickets were recently released apparently) and also the hot weather. They really should have priced the tickets in a way which appeals to a lot of people. A friend said that on average, tickets were almost double the price of what they are sold for in IPL.

18 overs 2 wickets for 135 runs SR67.5 economy of 7.5 is showing Woakes isnt great with the new ball so far in this WC .

Would like to think England can chase this score down

We are making a hash of the early round games. Need Stokes back he is a cool head and can get big match winning scores
Even on one leg he is essential to the team.

Yep we look a long way off the last time we played a WC and a loss now to one of the smaller teams with all the big boys still to go
