The latter part of 2023 is dovetailed by the Rugby World Cup and, while that’s still going, the International Cricket Council (ICC) Men’s Cricket World Cup 2023. Here’s everything you need to know about watching the One Day International (ODI) Cricket World Cup from Australia.

ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup 2023 Australia matches and times

You’ll want to prep for some late nights if you’re keen to watch most Australian matches live. Pretty much every ICC Cricket World Cup 2023 matches start at 7:30pm AEDT, with a couple on at 4:00pm AEDT on dual-match days. That means most of Australia’s matches start at 7:30pm and—rain delays, super overs or faster innings notwithstanding—should wrap up at around 3:30am the following day.

Here’s a look at every preliminary match for Australia (alongside the ODI team rankings at the time of writing):

  • Australia (2) vs India (3): Sunday 8 October at 7:30pm AEDT
  • Australia (2) vs South Africa (6): Thursday 12 October at 7:30pm AEDT
  • Australia (2) vs Sri Lanka (8): Monday 16 October at 7:30pm AEDT
  • Australia (2) vs Pakistan (1): Friday 20 October at 7:30pm AEDT
  • Australia (2) vs Netherlands (14): Wednesday 25 October at 7:30pm AEDT
  • Australia (2) vs New Zealand (5): Saturday 28 October at 4:00pm AEDT
  • Australia (2) vs England (4): Saturday 4 November at 7:30pm AEDT
  • Australia (2) vs Afghanistan (9): Tuesday 7 November at 7:30pm AEDT
  • Australia (2) vs Bangladesh (7): Saturday 11 November at 4:00pm AEDT

If you go by team rankings alone, Australia should win every match in the round-robin stage except for the one against Pakistan. But expect all subcontinent teams to perform well in India (especially with turning tracks), plus plenty of fight from old rivals England and New Zealand.

ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup 2023 warm-up matches

No word on whether (or where) they’ll be televised, but every team has two warm-up matches against another World Cup team. Keep an eye on the ICC website, which may also feature warm-up match streams. Matches won’t count towards official global rankings as teams are able to use everybody in their respective 15-player squads instead of the typical 11-player outfit. Here’s a look at the ICC Cricket World Cup 2023 warm-up matches:

  • Bangladesh vs Sri Lanka: Friday 29 September at 6:30pm AEDT
  • South Africa vs Afghanistan: Friday 29 September at 6:30pm AEDT
  • New Zealand vs Pakistan: Friday 29 September at 6:30pm AEDT
  • India vs England: Saturday 30 September at 6:30pm AEDT
  • Australia vs Netherlands: Saturday 30 September at 6:30pm AEDT
  • England vs Bangladesh: Monday 2 October at 7:30pm AEDT
  • New Zealand vs South Africa: Monday 2 October at 7:30pm AEDT
