The winner of every match gets two points while a match yielding no result will give a point each to both teams. Top four teams are selected on the basis of their points and they proceed to semi-finals. The winners of two semi-finals proceed to square off in the final match to be held at the Narendra Modi Stadium, Ahmedabad on 19 November 2023.

The champions of the 2023 ODI World Cup will take home a mind boggling prize money of $4 million. The runner-up will get a huge $2 million prize money. The semifinalists won’t be disappointed either as they will receive $800,000 each. The total prize money for this mega tournament is $10 million.

APPEALING LOGO

The ICC unveiled the official logo for world cup which derives its origins from ‘NAVRASA’, a term of Indian theatre which symbolises nine prominent emotions which a cricket fan would experience in due course of this world cup. The nine emotions represent GLORY, RESPECT, BRAVERY, JOY, WONDER, ANGUISH, PASSION, PRIDE and POWER.

TWO MASCOTS FROM CRICTOVERSE

The ICC has invited suggestions for names to be given to two mascots, the male mascot a skillful batsman and the female mascot a fiery bowler, both from cricket utopia named Crictoverse.
