The 2019 Cricket World Cup is the 12th edition which is to be hosted by England and Wales cricket board from 30 May to 15 July 2019.
Actually, the hosting rights were awarded for England in April 2006, after they withdrew from the bidding contest to host the 2015 ICC Cricket World Cup, which was held in Australia and New Zealand.
The first match of the 2019 cricket world cup will be played at The Oval. This is the fifth time that the Cricket World Cup will be held in England, previously followed by 1975, 1979, 1983 and 1999 World Cups.
Cricket World cup Format:
This time top ten teams are competing for a higher price with each team playing against other nine teams to qualify for the semifinals. The tournament with ten teams has gained so much criticism due to the lack of many Associate teams in the tournament.
Fixture lists for all the tournament were released on 26 April 2018 after the immediate completion of the ICC meeting in Kolkata. The London Stadium which now had been named as the possible venue in the planning stages, and in January 2017 the International Cricket Council completed a complete inspection of the cricket grounds.
