World Cup 2023 will be played in India: ICC CEO

India are not in danger of losing the hosting rights of the 2021 Champions Trophy and 2023 World Cup despite tax exemption issues, the International Cricket Council (ICC) CEO David Richardson declared Thursday, ending speculation that has swirled around the two events.

The Indian government refused to give tax exemptions to the ICC when the country hosted the 2016 World T20 following which the game’s governing body asked the BCCI to either pay USD 23 million (Rs 161 crore) as compensation or lose the 2023 World Cup rights.
