ICC Cricket World Cup Schedule

The ICC Cricket World Cup is almost upon us, and players will be hard at work preparing for the big stage. The World Cup 2019 time table sees the hosts, England, square off against South Africa on the 30th of May.

This year’s World Cup will be the 12th edition of the tournament. Across England and Wales, 12 venues will play host to the 10 teams battling it out for the crown.

Out of the 10 teams facing each other for the Cricket World Cup title, eight have automatically qualified. They are, Australia, England, India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, New Zealand and South Africa. However, the likes of West Indies and Afghanistan went through a qualifier tournament.

Interestingly, ahead of the World Cup 2019, there was a change of format. The new ICC Cricket World Cup Schedule states that teams will play 9 matches in a round robin before the top 2 qualify.

Moving on to team news, the Men in Blue were dealt a blow when Kedar Jadhav picked up an injury. So, the BCCI are scrambling to find a replacement, and they have zeroed in on Ambati Rayudu and Axar Patel as likely candidates.
