The ICC World Cup 2019, which starts on May 30 when South Africa take on England at the Kennington Oval, and ends with the final at Lord’s on July 14, comprises 10 nations. There are 48 matches in total.
Where is the Cricket World Cup 2019 taking place?
All the matches in the 2019 Cricket World Cup take place in England and Wales, and GentingBet will offer odds on each of them. The format sees all 10 teams playing each other in a round-robin format before the semi-finals take place at Old Trafford, Manchester (July 9) and Edgbaston, Birmingham (July 11).
Who are the current Cricket World Cup defending champions?
Australia are the current ICC World Cup holders, having won the 2015 renewal when co-hosting with New Zealand. Australia defeated New Zealand by seven wickets in the final at Melbourne to lift the World Cup for the fifth time. Experience can often count for plenty and no less than six of that victorious Australia squad remain in the 2019 squad.
The Baggie Greens have won 74% of their World Cup matches, winning 62 of their 84 matches, but they will face stiff opposition from the hosts, who are currently ranked No1 in the world, ahead of India, South Africa and New Zealand. Australia occupy the No5 spot in the world rankings.
Australia won four of the last five Cricket World Cups, having been successful in 1999, 2003, 2007 and 2015, a run only broken by India in 2011. The West Indies (1975 and 1979), Pakistan (1992) and Sri Lanka (1996) are the only other nations to win this One Day International tournament.
England has hosted this tournament on four previous occasions but the best result achieved has been three runner-up efforts (1979, 1987 and 1992). South Africa, New Zealand, Bangladesh and Afghanistan will also try and win the title for the first time.
Afghanistan, who are competing in only their second ICC World Cup, start their campaign at the County Ground, Bristol, on June 1, when they face defending champions Australia.
