Watch Cricket World Cup 2019 live stream

The upcoming 2019 Cricket World Cup will be the 12th edition of the competition. The tournament will kickstart on 30th May and run until 14th July, with England and Wales set to play hosts.

England previously hosted the tournament back in 1975, 1979, 1983 and 1999.

Australia enters the competition as the defending champions, however, they are far from the favourites to lift the trophy come July. They are the most successful team in the history of the competition, having won 5 previous World Cups, but are in a phase of transition and might consider themselves lucky just to make the semifinals of the competition.

England and India remain firm favourites. England is the No. 1 ranked ODI side in the world and have a new-look team packed with limited-overs specialists.

The likes of Jos Buttler, Jonny Bairstow and Eoin Morgan will all be looking to make an impression.

India, on the other hand, has the world’s best batsman in Virat Kohli along with a strong support cast in the form of Rohit Sharma, Jasprit Bumrah and co. They will fancy their chances on what will be flat, batting friendly surfaces on offer in England.

However, teams like South Africa, West Indies and New Zealand can never be written off considering the talent they have in their ranks.

Teams

10 teams will take part in the competition. This is reduced from the 12 that took part in previous editions. The decision to hold a 10-team World Cup received intense backlash from fans as there will be no place for Associate teams.

Associate teams have fared pretty well in the past and there is always the added thrill of seeing an associate beat a full-member side. However, that will not be a part of the World Cup this time around.

India, Pakistan, England, South Africa, West Indies, Australia, New Zealand, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, Afghanistan are the 10 teams that will feature in the 2019 World Cup.

Format

The World Cup will revert to the format it followed in the 1992 edition, with 10 teams each facing off against each other in a single round-robin format.

2 points will be awarded for a win, while a tie or a washout will result in 1 point for either team. The four top teams will then progress to the semifinals.

Prediction

England and India are almost certain to make it to the semifinals at least. They should ideally be joined by Australia and one of South Africa and New Zealand who seem well-balanced on paper.

I expect England and India to contest the final at Lord’s, with England emerging victorious in front of their home fans for the first time in their history.
