The 2023 FIFA World Cup in India will give a big boost to coordination: New Zealand coach

New Zealand men’s coach Gary Stead said that while cricket experts might predict the demise of cricket for a day, he’s not entirely sure about it, adding that he personally likes the shape because it has twists and turns similar to Tests.

The coach of the World Test Champions, who recently returned from the three-match series against England, added that with India hosting the ODI World Cup next year, it would generate great excitement and give a boost to the format.

Many cricketers, including Australia’s Usman Khawaja, India’s Robin Uthappa and others, had anticipated the demise of day-to-day cricket as T20 tournaments spread across the world, but Stead feels otherwise.

“I don’t know to be honest (whether ODI cricket is a dying model),” Stead said on SENZ Mornings on Wednesday. The Black Caps have been a huge success in one-day cricket, having reached the last two World Cup finals in 2015 and 2019.

“Personally, I really like the one-day format. I think it’s a great combination of a little bit of practice cricket at times where you have to get through some tough periods and also the excitement of T20 cricket and I think my T20 cricket skills have taken ODI points to another level again Stead added.

“You’ll, I think, see more excitement especially with India hosting the next World Cup. I hope it’s not a dying art, I think it’s a great match that you’re still a part of.”

The next ODI World Cup in 2023 is scheduled to take place in India during the months of October and November.
