Cricket World Cup 2019

May 30th - July 14th

The ICC Cricket World Cup is an international cricket tournament of the One Day (ODI) format. Currently made up of 10 teams, the Cricket World Cup takes place every four years, with the champion decided in a finals format.

First taking place in 1975, the Cricket World Cup remains one of the most-watched sporting events in the World. The host country is determined on a rotational basis, while a spot in the tournament is open to all members of the International Cricket Council.

Teams that rank highly in the world rankings gain automatic qualification into the event, while lowly ranked sides gain entry via the World Cricket League or the ICC World Cup Qualifier. In previous years up to 20 teams have contested the World Cup, however the 2019 edition will see only 10.

In its 40-plus year history, the World Cup has been won once by Pakistan and Sri Lanka, twice by the West Indies, twice by India, and five-times by Australia.
