Despite initial tepid public enthusiasm, the 2023 Men’s ODI World Cup gained momentum with India’s successful run, Afghanistan’s surprising victories, and memorable individual performances. The tournament faced organizational issues but ultimately proved successful, with matches attracting large crowds. The format of 50-over cricket was praised for its ability to showcase both batting and bowling skills. While some suggest reducing the length of ODIs, others argue that the format should remain unchanged. The future of ODIs will be discussed at an upcoming ICC meeting in Ahmedabad.
