Cricket World Cup fixtures at Lord's confirmed

Cricket World Cup fixtures at Lord's confirmed

England will open the tournament at The Oval on May 30 when they will take on South Africa, while Australia will launch their title defence on June 1 against the World Cup Qualifier champions Afghanistan in a day/night match in Bristol.

"Conditions are going to play a factor as well - we will look into every circumstance we can foresee with the fixture list being released". While you have a situation of teams wanting to play five-Test series, trying to fit everyone playing everyone in a two-year period is not that easy.

Edgbaston in Birmingham will host India's matches against England and Bangladesh on 30 June and 2 July, respectively, while their ninth and last league match will be at Headingley, Leeds, against Sri Lanka on 6 July. We all have a responsibility to the game and its fans and the strength of feeling around the board table today means we have a unique opportunity to improve the behaviour and culture across cricket.

The 2019 World Cup will follow the format of the one held in 1992 with all the teams in the first round playing each other in the first round.

India will then travel to London where they will square off against defending champions Australia at The Oval on 9 June, while Trent Bridge in Nottingham will be the stage of their third league match against New Zealand on 13 June.

The Board ratified the appointment of Belinda Clark of Australia as the women's Committee representative on the Cricket Committee replacing Clare Connor who had served a maximum of three three-year terms.

"One of the biggest challenges to the game is caused by the proliferation of domestic T20 leagues".

We are committed to growing the game and T20 is the vehicle through which we'll do this and removing restrictions and having all Members ranked is a positive step forward.

"If we can get all of cricket united in a desire to be a part of Olympics, I think we have a good chance of persuading International Olympic Committee that cricket is a sport that can add value to the Olympics", Richardson said.

"Having personally experienced a game in Dublin between the West Indies and Bangladesh in the 1999 World Cup, I know it had a huge impact on my outlook on my future".

The previous edition of the World Cup in 2015 was won by Australia under the leadership of Michael Clarke.

"This far out, England are favourites to win it", said Butcher.

"Our research shows, T20 cricket is probably most favourable format certainly in women's game". This team is very talented.

Amir expressed his wish to be the top bowler of the tournament. "I don't expect any of those things to befall England".
