Point Table ICC Cricket World Cup 2023
Ten teams, 48 matches, and a battle of cricketing giants will unfold between October 5 and November 19 across vibrant stadiums in India. Defending champions England and runners-up New Zealand kick-start the tournament in Ahmedabad.
The last three World Cups have all been won by the hosting nations — India 2011, Australia (co-hosts alongside New Zealand) 2015 and England 2019 and now again in India 2023. The final will be played on November 19 at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad.
The ICC World Cup 2023 will follow the same format as the previous edition four years ago, meaning that all 10 teams will face one another in a round-robin format. This will be the last edition to follow this pattern as ICC is set to announce a new format for the 2027 showpiece event.
The competition follows a familiar round-robin format. All 10 teams face off once, totaling 45 matches. The top four teams from this round will advance to the semi-finals. The top team after the round robin will play the team finishing fourth on the table, while the second and third-place finishers will meet in the other semi-final.

The Cricket World Cup 2023 points table will be based on the standing of the teams and they will decide which four teams advance to the semi-final stage or eliminate from the tournament. In case where two or more teams end up with same number of points, the team with a superior net-run-rate (NRR) will have the edge over the others.
