Cricket World Cup 2019

The 12th edition of the ICC Cricket World Cup will kickstart on May 30 with hosts England taking on South Africa. For the first time after 1992 World Cup, this edition will be played in a round-robin format, which means that all the ten participating nations will clash with each other at least once and the top four teams will progress to the semi-finals. Defending champions Australia, who will be boosted with the return of former skipper Steve Smith and David Warner after serving their 12-month suspension for their role in the ball tampering scandal, will start their campaign against minnows Afghanistan on June 1. The Indian team led by Virat Kohli will play their first match against South Africa on June 5. All the league matches will be wrapped by July 6 and the finals will be played on July 14 at The Lords.
