The ICC ODI World Cup 2023 schedule was announced on Tuesday (June 27). The Indian team will play the role of host in this year’s World Cup and the first match of the tournament will be played on October 5 in Ahmedabad. The final of the World Cup has been held on November 19. It has been said that this year’s World Cup will be played in round robin mode. However, many people do not know what this round robin method is. Let’s learn about Round Robin.
Meanwhile, this is not the first time when the World Cup has been organized in round robin mode. Earlier in 1992 and 2019 also the World Cup was organized in round robin format. The 2023 World Cup (World Cup 2023) is also of the same pattern. A round robin means that all participating teams will play each other in the league stage one-on-one. Each team will play 9-9 matches in the league stage. The four best performing teams in the league stage will advance to the quarterfinals.
The semi-finals of the World Cup 2023 will be played between first vs fourth and second vs third in the points table. The teams for the final match will be determined after the results of these two matches. Such arrangement is called round robin. The matches are not organized after dividing the teams into two groups. As a result, the team has to play each of its rivals to secure a place in the top four.
The Indian team’s performance in the round-robin format of the tournament was nothing special. When the World Cup was first played in this manner in 1992, India could not even make it to the semi-finals. After that, even in the 2019 World Cup, India could not perform satisfactorily. This time the team reached the semi-finals, but could not advance. (What is the round robin system used in ODI World Cup 2023?)
