The final of the World Test Championship can be held between 7-11.
BCCI is planning to conduct IPL 2023 from March to May.
In such a situation, there may be a problem regarding the availability of players.
New Delhi. The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has suffered another major setback in IPL 2023 with a major doubt over the availability of overseas players during the latter stages. The final of the World Test Championship (WTC) is scheduled to be played on June 7, which means players may be ousted during the playoffs as well. There can also be a clash regarding further scheduling in the IPL, as the ICC does not allow any other tournament seven days before.
The BCCI official told InsideSport, “We will try to avoid any possible clash with the World Test Championship final. We understand that there could potentially be a problem with the availability of players.” The BCCI is in a fix with the ICC set to host the World Test Championship final on June 7. With the date dangerously close to the IPL final, the Indian Cricket Board aims to have the final in late May.

ICC rules dictate that no competition should be held 7 days prior to an ICC event. In such a situation, the IPL final will have to be done on or before May 30. The BCCI official said, “Yes, we are aware and we are discussing the possible start and end dates. We have not finalized both the dates yet, but it is expected that the IPL will start in the end of March and end by the last week of May.
The ODI tour of Australia is expected to end on 22 March. Australia is going to play 4 Test matches and 3 ODIs starting from February. Border Gavaskar Trophy 2023 will finally decide the fate of both the teams. At the same time, according to another report, the dates of IPL have not been decided yet, but it is believed that IPL will start from March 31 and the final can be played between May 28 and June 04 with 74 matches being played.

The BCCI is planning an IPL window from March to May which will have 74 matches. Due to the World Test Championship, there may be a problem of availability of players. Australia, South Africa, Sri Lanka are all trying to make it to the World Test Championship final. Currently, Australia, South Africa, India and Sri Lanka occupy the top 4 positions in the World Test Championship table.
Players from both Australia and South Africa have given a large number of names for the IPL 2023 mini auction. In such a situation, it can also affect the auction. Due to the tour of Pakistan last year, Australian players did not play the opening matches of IPL. On the other hand, if India qualifies for the WTC final, then it can be very tiring for the players. Because WTC final is going to be held on 07th June.
