ICC World Cup 2019 Schedule, Fixtures, Time Table, Teams & Venue Details

ICC World Cup 2019 Schedule, Fixtures, Time Table, Teams & Venue Details: England and Wales will play host to 2019 world cup after winning the rights over a decade ago. The hosting rights to 2011, 2015 and 2019 world were awarded simultaneously in 2006. Initially, England and Wales put in a joint bid for the 2015 world cup. However, after Australia was beaten out by a joint Asian bid for the 2011 tournament they were offered the hosting rights in 2015. England and Wales were guaranteed the rights to 2019 if they agreed to withdraw their 2015 bid, which they promptly did. England was also granted the rights to the first ever T20 world cup in 2007 at the same time. The cricket tournament was originally going to be an invitational but after all twelve full and provisional members accepted the invitation the ICC granted it official status.

England will open the tournament at The Oval on May 30 when they will take on South Africa, while Australia will launch their title defence on June 1 against the ICC Cricket World Cup Qualifier champions Afghanistan in a day/night match in Bristol.
India, the 1983 and 2011 world champions, will play their first match on June 5 against South Africa at the Hampshire Bowl in Southampton. Their feature match against archrivals Pakistan will be on June 16 at Old Trafford in Manchester.
The World Cup will span 48 matches in all, of which 45 will make up the group stage. Each team will play nine group stage matches, and the top four will progress to the semifinals, similar to how the 1992 World Cup was held.

Qualification for the 2019 Cricket World Cup

Only 10 teams will qualify for the 2019 world cup after a decision was taken to shrink the size of the tournament. In 2011 and in 2015 the tournament had 14 teams but ICC have decided few nations will make for a better competition. England will qualify automatically because they are hosting the tournament, as will the top seven one day international nations according to the latest ICC rankings 6 months prior to the tournament.
However, that leaves only two spots for the remaining test playing nations and affiliate members of the ICC. Those places have been taken by Afghanistan and West Indies at a qualifying tournament which was held in Bangladesh in March 2018. This tournament included the remaining four teams that failed to make the top seven one day international spots plus the top four teams from the Cricket World League Championships.
