The ICC Men's Cricket World Cup returns to England and Wales in 2019.

From 30 May to 14 July, cricket grounds across England and Wales will host the ICC Men's Cricket World Cup 2019. It is the world’s 3rd most watched global sporting event and features the 10 best cricket teams in the world battling it out over 48 matches in 6 weeks to be crowned World Champions. The World Cup uses the 'One Day International' format which sees both sides play 50 overs in the same day.

Reigning champions Australia will look to repeat their 2015 victory, while hosts England will hope home advantage can help seal their first Cricket World Cup trophy.
