About The Venue

  • The twelfth edition of the men’s cricket world cup is scheduled from May 30 to July 14, 2019, to be hosted by England and Wales.
  • England is undoubtedly famous for one of the most picturesque cricket grounds in the world.

Match Predictions

  • On most of the pitches in England, a grassy top on the good length area is found. Though, this favours swing bowling, in the last few years it has rather proved to be batsman-friendly. It was considered impossible to judge the magnitude of the ball after pitching. But technical predictions suggest that batsmen might be in a stronger position on the pitch.

ICC World Cup 2019 Teams

The ten teams participating in this edition of the world cup are listed below. Let us have a look over their probabilities of winning the tournament.

1. England: It is an undeniable truth that the home conditions have their advantages. Thelast world cup in 2015, jointly hosted by Australia and New Zealand, was won by Australia, who beat their co-hosts New Zealand. England would want to repeat this history. The only thing that can send them to despair is the fact that they have never previously won a global 50-over tournament.

2. Australia: The defending champions have seen rough days this year. They would likely come up with the twin goals of defending their title and re-establishing their credibility. Also, if Steve Smith returns after the ban, he would not leave any stone unturned to re-earn his prestige.

3. India: In 2011, India brought home the prestigious world cup, but after that, the four series defeat in England appeared to be contradictory. Having learnt a lesson from 2018 tour of England. Also, Virat Kohli finally produced the top-level form in English conditions. This is surely a strength booster for the entire team.

4. South Africa: It is well-known that the team has never been able to reach the finals of an ICC Cricket World Cup Tournament. This year probably they have worked out a strategy to break this ‘curse’ like recurring event.

5. Pakistan: Pakistan cricket team is mercurial and unpredictable, but their ability is beyond the shadow of a doubt. Besides, they won the most recent global 50 over tournament, the 2017 ICC Champions Trophy. They can prove to be a tough contender this year.

6. Sri Lanka: Team Sri Lanka - the eighth and last team to earn a direct qualification into the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 has not been in its best form for a while, but who knows when Lady Fortune might favour them.

7. New Zealand: Kiwis always seem to be raising their game on big occasions. It would thus be no wonder if the dark horses might clinch the crown that barely escaped their fists the last time.

8. Bangladesh: Though we all know that team is more important in a match, as compared to one player, yet it will be a treat to watch Tamim Iqbal, Bangladeshiopener on the battleground as he is approaching the ICC CricketWorld Cup 2019 with the sole mindset of winning the trophy.

9. West Indies: The rifts between the West Indies Cricket Board and its players have prohibited the Caribbean nation from coming out with its most promising line-up. But after having secured a spot, they must come with a mindset to fight for it.

10. Afghanistan: The Afghans have won a hard-fought qualifying tournament to reach the world cup 2019 and would certainly be desperate to prove to the cricketing world that they are worthy of their spot.
