2019 CRICKET WORLD CUP – WikiVidi Documentary

WikiVidi.com 2019 Cricket World Cup The 2019 Cricket World Cup is the 12th edition of the Cricket World Cup, scheduled to be hosted by England and Wales, from 30 May to 14 July 2019. The hosting rights were awarded in April 2006, after England and Wales withdrew from the bidding to host the 2015 ICC Cricket World Cup, which was held in Australia and New Zealand. 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 the 1975, 1979, 1983 and 1999 World Cups. The format for the tournament will be a single group of ten teams, with each team playing the other nine teams, and the top four teams progressing to a knockout stage of semi-finals and a final. The 10-team-tournament has gained criticism due to the lack of associate teams in the tournament. Given the increase of the test playing nations from 10 to 12 with the admission of Ireland and Afghanistan in June 2017, it will be the first World Cup to be contested without all of the test playing nations being present, because the ICC plan to keep the competition at just 10 teams. Qualification The 2019 World Cup will feature 10 teams, a decrease from previous World Cups in 2011 and 2015 which featured 14 teams. The hosts, England, and the top seven other teams in the ICC One Day International rankings as of 30 September 2017 will earn automatic qualification, with the remaining two spots being decided by the 2018 Cricket World Cup Qualifier. At the time of the announcement of the qualification structure, ICC Associate and Affiliate members, who were guaranteed four spots in the previous two World Cup tournaments, could be represented by at most two teams, and possibly none at all if they were beaten by the lowest ranked Full Members in the Qualifier. It also meant that at least two of the 10 Test playing nations at the time of the announcement would have to play in the qualifying tournament, and could possibly miss the World Cup finals entirely. Following recent success, Ireland and Afghanistan were promoted into the ICC ODI Championship and have also since been promoted to full members of the ICC, becoming the newest Test cricketing nations. However, they will still need to qualify for the World Cup via the current process. Venues The fixture list for this event will be released at the end of March 2018 once the qualifiers have been completed. However, on 17 December 2014, the ECB indicated that the final would be held at Lord’s, and the semi-finals at Old Trafford and Edgbaston Cricket Ground. In addition, the opening match of the tournament will be held at The Oval. London Stadium could also be added to the list of venues pending the result of a feasibility test. In January 2017, the International Cricket Council completed an inspection of the ground, confirming that the pitch dimensions would be compliant with the requirements to host ODI matches. Group stage The format for the group stage is to have all ten teams play each other in a single group. 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 then progress to the knockout stage. A similar format was previously used in the 1992 Cricket World Cup.
