Guwahati Misses Out on Hosting Cricket World Cup Matches


In a slight disappointment for cricket fans in Guwahati, it has been confirmed that the city will not be hosting any matches during the much-anticipated Cricket World Cup 2023. The news comes as a surprise to many, as there were hopes of securing a prestigious fixture at Guwahati’s ACA Stadium at Barsapara. However, recent reports suggest that the stadium will only serve as a venue for warm-up matches, rather than hosting the high-stakes clashes of the main event.

The Cricket World Cup, slated to kick off in October, will feature thrilling encounters at 10 major venues across India. Unfortunately, Guwahati will not be among the host cities for the tournament matches. Despite having a cricket-loving population and a vibrant sporting culture, the city did not make the cut for hosting World Cup fixtures. Guwahati had gained attention in recent times for successfully organizing IPL matches, where renowned teams like Rajasthan Royals, Punjab Kings, and Delhi Capitals had showcased their skills.

Instead, Guwahati, along with Thiruvananthapuram and Hyderabad, will have the opportunity to witness the excitement of the warm-up matches. These matches, scheduled to take place from 29th September to 3rd October, will provide cricket enthusiasts in Guwahati a chance to catch a glimpse of their favorite players in action before the official start of the tournament. While it may not be the main event, the warm-up matches will still be a treat for fans, allowing them to experience the thrill of live cricket and support their favorite teams.

Warm-Up Matches Provide Cricket Enthusiasts in Guwahati an Opportunity to Experience the Excitement

Although Guwahati missed out on hosting World Cup fixtures, the passion for the game in the city remains undimmed. The disappointment is softened by the fact that Guwahati will be part of the warm-up match lineup, ensuring that fans can still be part of the cricketing extravaganza. The city’s cricket fervor will continue to thrive as fans come together to celebrate the sport they love and enjoy the display of cricketing skills on the field. While the World Cup may not grace Guwahati’s grounds, the spirit of the game will undoubtedly endure, and fans will eagerly await their turn to witness top-class cricket in the future.
