The ICC World Cup 2019 is the 12th edition of the 50-over international cricket tournament, scheduled to be hosted by England and Wales, from 30 May to 14 July 2019.
The first match will be played at The Oval while the final will be played at Lord's. It is the fifth time that the Cricket World Cup will be held in England and Wales, following first three and 1999 World Cups.
The format for the group stage is to have all ten teams play each other in a single group -- similar format was previously used in the 1992 Cricket World Cup. This means a total of 45 matches will be played with each team playing a total of nine matches. The top four teams from the group will progress to the semi-finals, with the winners of each progressing to the final at Lord's Cricket Ground.
The 2019 World Cup will feature 10 teams, a decrease from previous World Cups in 2011 and 2015 which featured 14 teams. The hosts, and the top seven other teams in the ICC ODI rankings as of 30 September 2017 earned automatic qualification, with the remaining two spots -- Afghanistan and West Indies being decided by the 2018 Cricket World Cup Qualifier. First time all test nation not participates in the mega event.
