The 2019 ICC Cricket World Cup is the 12th edition of the Cricket World Cup, an international cricket tournament contested by men's national teams from the International Cricket Council (ICC). It is being hosted by England and Wales from 30 May to 14 July 2019.
|Dates||30 May–14 July|
|Administrator(s)||International Cricket Council|
|Cricket format||One Day International|
|Tournament format(s)||Round-robin and Knockout|
|Official website||Official website|
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 was played at The Oval while the final will be played at Lord's. It is the fifth time that the Cricket World Cup is being held in England and Wales, following the 1975, 1979, 1983 and 1999 World Cups.
The format for the tournament is a single group of 10 teams, with each team playing the other nine once, and the top four at the end of the group phase progressing to the semi-finals. Given the increase of ICC Full Members since the last World Cup, from 10 to 12, this is the first World Cup to be contested without all of the Full Member nations being present. Furthermore, the number of participants was reduced from the previous World Cup’s 14 participants, and since none of the teams from ICC Associate Member nations made it through the qualifying tournament, this is the first World Cup to feature no Associate Members.
The 2019 World Cup features 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 earned 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 their recent success, Ireland and Afghanistan were promoted into the ICC ODI Championship and were also granted full ICC membership, becoming the newest Test cricketing nations. However, they still needed to qualify for the World Cup via the current process.
West Indies became the first team to qualify after defeating Scotland using the Duckworth–Lewis–Stern method. Afghanistan joined the West Indies in qualifying for the World Cup after defeating Ireland in the final over which eliminated both Ireland and Zimbabwe from qualifying. This was the first time since 1983 that Zimbabwe failed to qualify for a World Cup. Ireland also missed the World Cup for the first time since 2007 and for the first time ever no Associate nation participated in the World Cup.

The fixture list for the tournament was released on 26 April 2018 after the completion of an International Cricket Council (ICC) meeting in Kolkata. London Stadium had been named as a possible venue in the planning stages, and in January 2017 the ICC completed an inspection of the ground, confirming that the pitch dimensions would be compliant with the requirements to host ODI matches. However, when the fixtures were announced, London Stadium was not included as a venue.

All the participating teams had to submit the names of their respective World Cup squads by 23 April 2019. The teams were allowed to change players in their 15-man squad anytime up to seven days prior to the start of the tournament. New Zealand were the first team to announce their World Cup squad. The oldest player for the tournament was South African player, Imran Tahir who was forty years old while the youngest was Afghani spinner Mujeeb Ur Rahman who is eighteen years old.
ICC also announced the name of 6 match referees for the tournament.
The International Cricket Council declared a total prize money pool of US $10 million for the tournament, the same as the 2015 edition. The prize money will be distributed according to the performance of the team as follows:
|Stage||Prize money (US$)||Total|
|Winner of each league stage match||$40,000||$1,800,000|
|Teams that do not pass the league stage||$100,000||$600,000|
The opening ceremony took place on The Mall during the evening of 29 May 2019, a day before the start of the World Cup. Andrew Flintoff, Paddy McGuinness, and Shibani Dandekar hosted the event. A 60-second challenge took place among the ten participating 'teams', with each side represented by two guest figures each, involving Viv Richards, Anil Kumble, Mahela Jayawardene, Jacques Kallis, Brett Lee, Kevin Pietersen, Farhan Akhtar, Malala Yousafzai, Jaya Ahsan, Yohan Blake, Damayanthi Dharsha, Azhar Ali, Abdur Razzak, James Franklin, Steven Pienaar, Chris Hughes, Sean Fitzpatrick and Pat Cash, while David Boon was the umpire for the game. England won the game by scoring 74 points and Australia came second with 69 points.
Michael Clarke, the then captain of defending champions Australia, took the World Cup trophy to the stage, accompanied by former England off-spinner Graeme Swann. The ceremony came to end with the official World Cup song Stand By, performed by LORYN and Rudimental.
Following the 2019 Pulwama attack, several former Indian players and the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) called for the boycott of the group match fixture between India and Pakistan, wanting to ban the Pakistan team from playing in the tournament. However, after conducting a board meeting in Dubai, the ICC rejected the BCCI's proposal and confirmed that the scheduled match would go ahead as planned, despite the ongoing standoff between the two nations.
The 2019 tournament began on 30 May at The Oval in London, between the host nation (England) and South Africa. England batted first and, after losing their first wicket to the second ball of the tournament, went on to score 311/8 from their 50 overs with Ben Stokes top-scoring with 89 runs from 79 balls. In reply, South Africa was bowled out for 207, with a collapse of 8 wickets for 63 to give England the victory by 104 runs. The three following matches were one-sided; in the first West Indies bowled-out Pakistan for just 105 before chasing the target down in only 13.4 overs. The first double-header of the group stage saw comfortable wins for New Zealand and Australia, as they won by 10 and 7 wickets respectively over Sri Lanka and Afghanistan.
In the fifth match of the group stage at The Oval, Bangladesh made their highest score in a ODI ,with 330/6 from their fifty overs. Mushfiqur Rahim top-scored for Bangladesh with 78, as he and Shakib Al Hasan had a 142 run partnership for the third wicket. In reply, the South Africans couldn't get a partnership going with constant wickets falling through their innings. Mustafizur Rahman took three wickets for Bangladesh as South Africa fell short by 21 runs. The following day saw Pakistan cause an upset over one of the tournament favourites (England) at Trent Bridge with a 14 run victory. This was despite Joe Root (107) and Jos Butler (103) both scoring centuries in the chase, as they became the first players to score a century at the 2019 World Cup.
Sri Lanka got off to a good start in their game against Afghanistan in Cardiff, with them reaching 144/1 in the 21st over. This was before three wickets in five balls from Mohammad Nabi started an collapse which saw Sri Lanka being bowled-out for 201. Kusal Perera top-scored for Sri Lanka with 78, while Nabi took four wickets. In reply, rain forced Afghanistan innings to be reduced to 41 overs and one stage they were 57/5. A partnership of 64 from Najibullah Zadran (who top scored with 43) and Gulbadin Naib steadied the innings for Afghanistan but it wasn't enough, with Nuwan Pradeep grabbing two quick wickets as Afghanistan fell 34 runs short of their revised target.
Week 2 started with a double-header being played at the Rose Bowl and The Oval. At the Rose Bowl, India started their campaign with a six wicket win over South Africa. Yuzvendra Chahal took four wickets as he helped restrict the target to 228. In reply, Rohit Sharma scored 122* to chase the target with 15 balls to spare. The other match on the Wednesday saw Bangladesh give New Zealand a scare, as New Zealand went from 160/2 to 191/5 before getting home with three overs to spare. Ross Taylor top scored for New Zealand in the run-chase with 82, while Matt Henry was the pick of the bowlers in the match with four wickets.
In Nottingham, Australia had an early batting collapse to fall to 38/4 early in their innings. Half-centuries from Steve Smith and Nathan Coulter-Nile steadied the ship for the Australians as they were bowled for 288. In response, Chris Gayle had two overturned decisions go his way before getting out to what some thought should have been a free-hit, after Mitchell Starc over-stepped the previous ball. Despite a 68 from Shai Hope, Australia won by 15 runs off the back of Starc's five-wicket haul. After Pakistan and Sri Lanka was abandoned due to rain, the Saturday matches were played in Cardiff and Taunton. At Cardiff, Jason Roy scored the highest score of the tournament (at the time), with 153 as he was man of the match in the 106 run victory over Bangladesh. In Taunton, a five-wicket haul from Kiwi bowler James Neesham led New Zealand to their third victory on the trot, with a seven wicket victory over Afghanistan.
The final completed match of the week saw India defeat Australia by 36 runs at The Oval. Batting first, India targeted Marcus Stoinis and Adam Zampa's bowling with a combined total of 113 runs coming from their thirteen overs, as India scored 352/5. Shikhar Dhawan top scored for India with 117, while Stoinis was the only bowler to take more than one wicket. In the run chase, the Australians didn't get a rapid start from their openers with Bhuvneshwar Kumar's control getting him three wickets. Despite half-centuries from David Warner, Steve Smith and Alex Carey, the Australians were bowled out for 316. The final two games of the week were washed out, with only 7.2 overs happening on Monday, while Tuesday saw the game completely abandoned.
The third week of the World Cup saw Australia opening with a 146 run stand between David Warner and Aaron Finch with Warner going on to get a century. Pakistan fought back into the innings with Mohammad Amir taking five wickets which restricted Australia to 307. In response, Pakistan couldn't get a partnership going with consist wickets coming from the Australians. But after Pat Cummins finished his ten overs with 33/3, Sarfaraz Ahmed and Wahab Riaz tried to get Pakistan the victory with a quick fire 64-run partnership but it wasn't enough with Starc taking two wickets in the 41 run victory.  After a fourth wash-out of the World Cup in Nottingham, Joe Root scored his second century of the tournament while taking two wickets in England's eight wicket victory over the West Indies at Southampton. But the English victory was soured with Jason Roy missing the next two games with a hamstring injury after going off after the eighth over.
South Africa recorded their first win of the tournament at Cardiff against Afghanistan, with Imran Tahir taking four wickets as Afghanistan was bowled for 125. In reply, the South Africans chased down with a nine wicket victory. The other match on Saturday at London, saw Aaron Finch and Mitchell Starc guide the Australians to a 85 run victory which sent them to the top of the table with eight points from five games. The following day at Old Trafford saw the two rivals in India and Pakistan taking on each other. In the match which featured close to three million tweets, India scored 336/5 from their fifty overs which included a MOTM performance of 140 runs from Rohit Sharma. In response, Pakistan got off to a good start to be 117/1 at one stage before Kuldeep Yadav delievered two wickets in three balls[A] to turn the tide for India and giving them a 89 run victory over Pakistan via the Duckworth–Lewis–Stern method.
Ten non-ODI warm-up matches were played from 24 to 28 May 2019. All times are in British Summer Time (UTC +1).
The group stage format is a round-robin, where all ten teams play each other once, in a single group. This means a total of 45 matches will be played, with each team playing a total of nine matches. Teams earn two points for a win and one for a tie or no-result (a minimum of 20 overs per side is needed to constitute a result). Matches in this stage have no reserve day set aside in case of bad weather. After four games in seven days were rained-off and complaints were made about the lack of reserve days, the ICC chief executive, David Richardson, said that trying to include reserve days "would significantly increase the length of the tournament and practically would be extremely complex to deliver".
The top four teams from the group will progress to the knockout stage. If teams are tied on points, then the number of wins and then net run rate will be used to separate them. A similar format was previously used in the 1992 Cricket World Cup, though that tournament featured nine teams instead of ten.
|1||England (H)||5||4||1||0||0||8||1.862||Advance to semi-finals|
Rules for classification: 1) Points; 2) Wins; 3) Net run rate; 4) Results of games between tied teams; 5) Pre-tournament seeding
- Note: The total points at the end of each group match are listed.

The ICC released the fixture details on 26 April 2018.
The knockout stage will see two semi-finals, with the winners of each progressing to the final at Lord's. On 25 April 2018, it was reported that Old Trafford and Edgbaston would host the two semi-finals just as they did back in 1999, with all of the knockout games having a reserve day.
