India will host the One Day International World Cup in 2023 as well as the Champions Trophy in 2021, the Board of Control of Cricket in India (BCCI) confirmed in its Special General Meeting (SGM) on Monday.This is the first time India would be hosting an ODI World Cup completely. India has previously co-hosted ODI World Cup on three occasions (1987, 1996 and 2011).Other than the Champions Trophy and ODI World Cup, India will also host Afghanistan for their first ever Test in 2019-2020 after they became full members of the International Cricket Council (ICC) in June 2017 along with Ireland. Another point brought up at the SGM was the number of days reversed for hosting home games in the 2019-23 cycle. While India has planned to host 81 more home games, they have reduced the number of playing days to 306.
