Back to sporting events that fans and punters are looking forward to in 2023, here we will explore four significant events.

ICC Men's Cricket World Cup:

It is not the first time that India is hosting the world cup. The country has previously hosted the prestigious event three times.

Dubbed the 13th edition of the ICC Men's cricket world cup, the tournament is expected to attract a massive following given that fans will attend physically.

The previous tournament had been affected by COVID-19, where fans were not allowed in the stadium.

This year, fans will return to the stadium as most of the restrictions put to check the spread of COVID-19 have been lifted.

Ten teams will be contesting for the coveted cricket trophy, with the tournament following the format used in 2019 when the games were held in England and Wales.

Forty-eight matches will be played during the tournament giving fans and betting enthusiasts good entertainment. The tournament was initially scheduled for February but had to be postponed to October due to COVID.

Cricket fans eagerly await the tournament, given that it had been postponed once.

They will have a month-packed action following their favorite teams, while bettors will have a great time wagering on different matches and players.

Men's Hockey World Cup:

Cricket World Cup will not be the only major tournament played in India in 2023; the country will also play host to Hockey World Cup, among other sporting events.

Coming earlier than cricket, the Hockey World Cup will start earlier in the year, on January 13th, and end on January 29th.

The tournament will be bringing together Hockey champions from 16 countries. This is how the countries are pooled:

  • Pool A- Australia, Argentina, France, and South Africa
  • Pool B- Belgium, Germany, South Korea, and Japan
  • Pool C- Netherlands, New Zealand, Malaysia, and Chile
  • Pool D- India, England, Spain, and Wales

All the matches will be played in Kalinga and Birsa Munda International Stadium.

Hockey fans in India and worldwide are eagerly waiting for the two-week packed hockey extravaganza.

It is similar for punters; they already identify the teams they will be backing as the tournament draws near.

Women's World Boxing Championships:

When the list of countries passionate about boxing is prepared, India will consistently rank at the top, which could explain why the country is hosting the International Boxing Association Women's Championships in 2023.

This will be the third time that India is hosting the prestigious tournament; 2006 and 2018 competitions were held in New Delhi, India.

While the India Boxing Association was accepting to host the competition, the officials saw this as a great honor for the country, especially within a short span.

In the last few years, India has built a world-class boxing infrastructure, which could be one of the reasons the country was honored with hosting this event.

The Indian sporting fraternity is eagerly waiting for this event. It will be kicking off on March 15th, running for two weeks to end on March 31st.

Badminton 2023 India Open:

The indoor games fans have been included; the India open is coming early in the year.

The tournament is set to start in two weeks, on January 17th, and end on the 22nd. The 2023 India open will be held at Jadhav Indoor Hall, New Delhi.

The tournament will see the likes of Viktor Axelsen, Lee Zii Jia, Loh Kean Yew, Jonatan Christie, Chou Tien-Chen, Anthony Ginting, and Lakshya Sen, among other Badminton stars, battle it in Men's Single and different categories. Indoor games fans are looking forward to starting the year on a higher note.

They are eagerly waiting for the kick-off matches and the thrill that comes with the tournament.

India's sports calendar is fully packed. From badminton, hockey, motorsports, cricket, and boxing, to wrestling, among other sporting activities, fans and punters will not have a dull moment.
