The ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 is the 12th edition of the Cricket World Cup, scheduled to be hosted by England and Wales from 30 May to 14 July 2019. It is the fifth time that ICC Cricket World Cup will be held in England and Wales. The format for the tournament will be a single group of ten teams, with each team playing the other nine teams, and the top four teams progressing to a knockout stage of semi-finals and a final.
The ten team tournament has gained criticism due to the lack of Associate teams in the tournament. Given the increase of the Test playing nations from 10 to 12, with the admission of Ireland and Afghanistan in June 2017. It will be the first World Cup to be contested without all of the Test playing nations being present and after the elimination of Scotland and the United Arab Emirates, this will be the first World Cup to feature no Associate members.
Star India is the global rights holders of the ICC rights and by virtue of that will be the host broadcaster for the ICC World Cup 2019. Star group has further licensed the rights to top sports broadcasters in each territory with Sky being the official broadcaster in UK, Super-Sports in the territory of South Africa and Fox Sports in Australia being the key broadcasters.
