ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 schedule announced

Australia

India, Australia, Bangladesh, England, New Zealand, Pakistan, South Africa and Sri Lanka had already been selected While Afghanistan, and West Indies sealed their place through qualifying round. Cricket has not been played at the Summer Games since it featured only once in Paris 1900.In a bold decision to globalise cricket, the ICC on the final day of its five-day long meetings chose to give global status to all T20 matches played by its 104 members.

Edgbaston in Birmingham will host India's matches against England and Bangladesh on 30 June and 2 July, respectively, while their ninth and last league match will be at Headingley, Leeds, against Sri Lanka on 6 July.

Australia begin their title defence in a day-night match against Afghanistan on 1 June in Bristol.

The semifinals are expected to be at Old Trafford and Edgbaston on July 9 and 11 with the final at Lord's on July 14.

"We haven't played there before, an element of unpredictability might have crept in with no previous record at the ground", he said. While the Test Championship will be among nine teams, the ODI World Cup Qualification League will see 13 teams competing. "This schedule also gives fans across England and Wales the opportunity to watch world-class cricket on their doorstep with all teams moving around the country".




The 10-team tournament, the schedule for which was announced on Thursday, runs from 30 May to 14 July 2019. This is the flagship event in one day cricket.

Describing India-Pakistan cricket issue as complicated and political, the former South African wicketkeeper batsman said: "Certainly its a common desire that it would be great to play more regularly and bilaterally as opposed to ICC events".

"We are particularly pleased with the unanimous agreement to award all T20 bilateral games worldwide status and the move to create a global ranking system for T20Is". Under this format, every team plays 1-1 games against each other in the starting stage.

There had been speculation the London Stadium, which has a capacity of some 60,000 - more than double that of Lord's and almost three times that of The Oval, London's other established global cricket ground, could be used during the World Cup. The prices balance accessibility with delivering the investment required to deliver a world class event. "All revenue is invested back in the game to grow cricket", Mr Elworthy added.
