The ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 is just about a year away from now. The much-awaited world cup 2019 schedule is out and the co-hosts England will take on South Africa in the first encounter on 30th May at the Oval, London.

India will start their campaign on June 5 whey clash against South Africa in Southampton. Their high-profile game against Pakistan will take place on June 16 at the Old Trafford, Manchester. The defending Champions Australia will begin their title defense against the recently qualified Afghanistan on June 1 in Bristol.

The format of the tournament is different this time. As opposed to the groups’ system of the previous years, all the 10 teams will take on each other once in the round robin stage. The top 4 teams will qualify for the semi-finals and the winners of those will play in the final as you can see below in table showing World Cup 2019 schedule. The similar format was adopted in the 1992 World Cup. The final will be played on July 15 at the iconic Lord’s, London.
