The first semi-final is slated for November 15th at Mumbai’s Wankhede Stadium, with the second semi-final taking place on November 16 at Kolkata’s Eden Gardens. The highly anticipated grand final is scheduled for November 19 at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad.
Now that India, South Africa, and Australia have secured their spots as confirmed semi-finalists, the demand for tickets is anticipated to soar. Both the ICC and BCCI have faced criticism for their perceived mishandling of the ticket sale process, and this upcoming sale will serve as a crucial test for them and their platform, Book My Show.
In one of the two semi-finals, the second-ranked South Africa is set to face Australia, regardless of the outcome in their last group-stage fixture. Meanwhile, the other semi-final, featuring India, is poised for a three-way battle among New Zealand, Pakistan, and Afghanistan.
With England, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, and the Netherlands out of contention, the opponents for India’s semi-final will hinge on the outcomes of the final three matches involving New Zealand, Afghanistan, and Pakistan. If Pakistan qualifies as the fourth-ranked team, India’s semi-final location will shift to Kolkata; otherwise, they will play in Mumbai.
