In the 18 editions of the FIBA Basketball World Cup, India has never made it to the main draw. Watch in real time! On Thursday, the Indian men’s basketball team will face Jordan in the second round of the FIBA Basketball World Cup 2023 Asian Qualifiers at the Prince Hamzah Hall in Amman.
The Indian men’s basketball team will return to India on August 29 to play Lebanon at the Kanteerava Indoor Stadium in Bengaluru. The two games constitute India’s August window in the FIBA Basketball World Cup 2023 qualifiers’ second round. Live streaming of India’s matches is available.
The next second round qualification periods are set for November and February FIBA Basketball World Cup 2023.
In the first round, India was grouped in Group A with New Zealand, the Philippines, and South Korea. The Indian men’s basketball team lost all four games but ended third on the standings because the Korean team was disqualified at the FIBA Basketball World Cup 2023.
With that, India advanced to the second round and was assigned to Group E, which included New Zealand, the Philippines, Saudi Arabia, Lebanon, and Jordan at the FIBA Basketball World Cup 2023. The Indian team’s first-round results against New Zealand and the Philippines will be carried over to the second round, meaning India will begin at the bottom of Group E with 0 points from four matches.
In the second round, India will face Saudi Arabia, Lebanon, and Jordan twice each. There will be no matches against New Zealand or the Philippines since India faced them in the first round and their results will be considered in the rankings. After all of the matches are completed, India must finish in the top three in the group (top four if the Philippines finish in the top three) to qualify for the 32-team FIBA Basketball World Cup 2023, which will be held in August-September of following year.
The Philippines and Japan, who are in Group F, have already qualified for the 2018 World Cup since they are the tournament’s co-hosts. In the 18 editions of the FIBA Basketball World Cup 2023, India has never qualified for the main draw. Aside from beginning at the bottom of the table, India, placed 82nd in the most recent FIBA basketball rankings, is also the lowest-ranked team in Group E.
In the current global rankings, Saudi Arabia is ranked 80th, Jordan is ranked 39th, and Lebanon is ranked 54th.
