The mighty Australian team, who in the last two years have won T20 World Cup and ICC World Test Championship Final, would be one of the hot favourites going into the ICC Cricket World Cup 2023. The Pat Cummins-led side has been in staggering form of late and it’ll be no surprise if they win the ODI World Cup. 

Australia will kick start their campaign against India in Chennai on 8th October. Their next challenge will be up against South Africa in Lucknow. They will face Proteas on 13th October. The Pat Cummins-led side won’t have to travel for their next game as they will take on Qualifier 2 at the same venue in Lucknow.

Australia will then shift their bases to Bengaluru, where they will play Pakistan on October 20th before travelling to Delhi for the game against Qualifier 1 on 25th October. The five-time world champions will be then next seen in action when they will lock horns with New Zealand on October 28th in Dharamsala. 

After the clash against New Zealand, it’ll be time for a classic Australia vs England game as the two arch-rivals will face each other on 4th November at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad. The Pat Cummins-led side will be moving to Mumbai and Pune then for their last two games against Afghanistan and Bangladesh on November 7th and November 12th.
