Cricket World Cup 2019
The 2019 Cricket World Cup is approaching and this time the most important ODI tournament in international cricket will be held in England and Wales. If you want to see the world's best One-day teams go for Cricket World Cup glory, then you're in the right place! Here at StubHub you can buy and sell 2019 Cricket World Cup tickets. The 2015 Cricket World Cup was jointly hosted by Australia and New Zealand and these two sides met in the Cricket World Cup final at Melbourne's iconic MCG with the Australian national cricket team comfortably beating their regional rivals in front of over 93,000 fans (a record attendance for a day of cricket in Australia). Who will win the 2019 Cricket World Cup? Will playing at home give the England cricket team an advantage and the win that they so desperately crave, having finished runners-up on three separate occasions.
Cricket World Cup 2019 teams and format
The format for the 2019 Cricket World Cup has changed and will consist of a single group of just ten teams. Each team will play the other nine cricket teams and the top four teams will then progress to the knockout stages of the tournament (the semi-finals and final). There has been some criticism around the new Cricket World Cup format as there are less associate teams like Zimbabwe and Scotland that will be able to compete. In fact, this will be the first Cricket World Cup to feature no associate members. The ten teams that have qualified for the 2019 Cricket World Cup are:
- New Zealand
- South Africa
- Sri Lanka
- West Indies
The Cricket World Cup favourites at the moment are India as they lead both the Test and ODI cricket rankings. However, playing cricket in England normally favours teams used to overcast conditions that help swing bowling, so this could be England's year. Cheer on your team, join in the banter and England's barmy army, get your Cricket World Cup tickets here at StubHub.
Cricket World Cup winners
The most successful team in the history of the Cricket World Cup is Australia. The Aussies have won the tournament a record five teams (1987, 1999, 2003, 2007, 2011 and 2015), India have won twice (1983 and 2011) as have the West Indies, who wan the first two Cricket World Cups in 1975 and 1979. A notable absentee from the champions list is South Africa as they have a reputation of choking on the international stage.
The 2019 Cricket World Cup matches will be played in Birmingham (Edgbaston), Bristol (Country Cricket Ground), Cardiff (Sophia Gardens), Chester-le-Street (Riverside Ground), Leeds (Headingley), London (Lords, the Oval and the London Stadium), Manchester (Old Trafford), Nottingham (Trent Bridge), Southampton (Rose Bowl) and Taunton (Country Ground).
