Another alteration sees the England-Afghanistan showdown, moving from October 14 to October 15. The fixture between New Zealand and Bangladesh also receives a twist, with their encounter in Chennai transitioning from a day game on October 14 to a captivating day-night spectacle on October 13. Meanwhile, the England-Bangladesh clash in Dharamsala remains on October 10, albeit in a different light – now scheduled as a day game rather than a day-night affair.

The scheduling shuffle in the revised ODI World Cup 2023 Schedule extends to November as well, with the double-header on November 12 – featuring Australia vs Bangladesh in Pune and England vs Pakistan in Kolkata – now rescheduled for November 11. This adjustment came about due to concerns raised by the Kolkata police, who wished to avoid a clash with the Hindu festival of Kali Puja.
