Dubai: Get the calendar out, start looking out for flights and accommodation and keep a track of the happenings as the International Cricket Council (ICC) on Thursday announced the schedule for the ICC World Cup 2019 in England and Wales.

While India will face arch-rivals Pakistan on June 16 in Manchester, the Men in Blue will open their World Cup 2019 campaign against South Africa on June 5 in Southampton.

 

The round-robbin structured tournament, like the 1992 World Cup in Australia and New Zealand, will be played across 11 venues in 10 cities and will have 48 matches and will be played across 46 days with the iconic Lord's Cricket Ground hosting the final.

The prestigious tournament will kick off on May 30 and the final will be played on July 14.

“It’s always an exciting moment ahead of any major event to announce the schedule and for the ICC Cricket World Cup. Next summer fans around the world will be treated to compelling and competitive cricket as the best teams in the world go head to head in this round-robin format for the right to be crowned World Champions," ICC Chief Executive David Richardson said.

“This schedule also gives fans across England and Wales the opportunity to watch world-class cricket on their doorstep with all teams moving around the country. We know from previous ICC events that every country will be proudly supported at each of the venues creating an exceptional atmosphere and a real celebration of the game,” he added.

The tournament which will last for 46 days will see the teams play in a single-league format. The top four teams from the two groups will progress to the semis.
