The Asia Cup will start from late August and run till September, while the ICC ODI World Cup 2023 will be held immediately after that from October to November. When the ICC sent the ODI World Cup schedule to all the cricket boards, the PCB objected to it. But now there is news that no PCB hearing has taken place. Due to this, the ICC has also done the work of showing him a mirror.
